First of all, buoyancy depends on gravity. If there is no gravity, there can be no such phenomenon as buoyancy. Look up the definition of buoyancy on Wikipedia or search buoyancy NASA on google, if you don’t believe it.
If gravity is simply buoyancy and density then why does hot air rise and not go down instead, or sideways? I’ll tell you why. Because we live in an environment where there is a downward force acting on things based on their mass. This can be experimentally verified and it does not depend on assuming the earth is a sphere. If I put 5 apples in a grocery scale I will get a certain weight (force). If I put an additional 5 apples of about the same size in the scale, the scale will register about twice the weight. So the force known as buoyancy depends on this downward force proportional to mass. This is why the deeper you go in a body of water the more pressure there is. This is why the higher you go in the atmosphere the less pressure there is.
Liquid water is nearly incompressible, so its density does not change much as you go deeper. In contrast, the atmosphere is made up of a mixture of gases, and they are very much compressible. So as you go up in the atmosphere, with the decreasing pressure the gaseous mixture becomes thinner or less dense because it is becoming less compressed.
If a mass of air were of the same temperature as the surrounding air, it would not tend to go up or down, because the upward forces around it based on decreasing pressure with altitude are balanced by the downward forces upon it based up its mass. But if the air were hotter than its surrounding air, its density would be less so that the downward force based on its mass would be less than the upward force due to decreasing pressure with altitude so the resulting balance of forces would cause it to rise. This is how a hot air balloon works.
Interestingly, forces greater than 1 g (i.e. 1 earth’s gravity) acting upon masses and proportional to mass can be artificially produced mechanically with centrifuges, or in an airplane in a steep coordinated turn, where a very steep turn may be alternately referred to as a high g turn, or pulling many g’s.
I am a Christian Universalist, All will ultimately be saved through Jesus Christ (1 Cor 15:22), a retired NASA engineer, a student of conspiracy theories, and started blogging in 2017 initially due to concern about the emergence of the flat earth movement, within which many Biblical literalists claim the earth is actually flat and that this truth has been hidden by Satan and science and NASA in the greatest of all conspiracies to keep people from the truth of God. I have ended up blogging on a variety of topics since then. In May 2020 I had the privilege and honor of being a reviewer of the English version of the book “The Ground Zero Model” by physicists Heinz Pommer and Colleagues. On the occasion of writing my review of the book, I updated my bio which is given below.
T. Mark Hightower has both B.S. & M.S. degrees in chemical engineering from San Jose State University. He initially worked in the chemical industry and then worked for NASA for 25 years as a federal government employee, where he took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. He retired from NASA in 2015.
His work at NASA included space life support systems for future long duration missions, hazardous materials management, arc jet testing of heat shield materials for spacecraft entry into planetary atmospheres, hyper velocity free flight aerodynamic testing of spacecraft and aircraft models in enclosed terrestrial ballistic range, facility water management including drinking water, storm water, industrial waste water, water conservation and reclamation, pollution prevention, above ground storage tanks, and climate change risk management. While at NASA he also served in the Ames Federal Employees Union as secretary, deputy chief steward, and vice president for safety.
He became a born again student of conspiracy theories in January 2004 after stumbling upon Peter Meyer's Serendipity web site and learning that controlled demolition was a more likely explanation for the destruction of the Twin Towers than the official government story. Based on further research and conversations with fellow employees with extensive explosives expertise, it did not take long for him to see that the evidence pointed very strongly to 9/11 having been a neocon false flag operation designed to falsely blame Muslims for something they did not do in order to ignite the “war on terror” against them for the benefit of Israel. Ever since then he has been working hard with many others to obtain true justice in the exposure apprehension conviction and punishment of the many real perpetrators who have so far eluded justice. He has said, “The blood of many thousands if not millions in the world who have lost their lives and suffered horribly because of their traitorous schemes cries out for them to be brought to justice and severely punished.”
In 2010 he became concerned when consulting with some retired military veterans with explosives experience that the evidence for nanothermite as a potential destructive agent for the twin towers was being overemphasized with exaggerated claims of its destructive potential, and in particular making unfounded claims that nanothermite could be a high explosive. This was leading many to believe that there was no need to look any further than nanothermite to explain the entirety of the wtc destructions.
Based on his research in conjunction with others, by 2011 after searching the technical literature he had found that the highest detonation velocity obtained for an aluminum iron oxide nanothermite was 895 m/s, nowhere near that of a typical conventional high explosive like TNT with a detonation velocity of 6900 m/s. Shortly thereafter, he and some others reported these results in various ways on the internet and in print. His modest claim of benefit of this research is to have simply helped reign in the exaggerated claims that were being made for nanothermite, so that other more credible means of explosive destruction might not be foolishly overlooked.
He applauds Jeff Prager’s tireless work in continuing to research and present evidence for the most credible hypotheses of the means of destruction used to take out the wtc towers, culminating in the publication of the English version of the book, "The Ground Zero Model," by Physicist Heinz Pommer and Colleagues, in June 2020.
Mr. Hightower is a member of Scholars for 911 Truth, a petition signer at Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth, and a member of Pilots for 911 Truth. He is a contributor to the book “America Nuked on 9/11” from Moon Rock Books edited by Jim Fetzer, and a contributor to the 2018 Memoranda for the President on 9/11 Truth organized by Robert David Steele. He is also a life member of both the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

One thought on “Most egregious Flat Earth claim – Gravity is simply buoyancy & density – Debunked”
First off, Universalism is unbiblical, but I agree with
1 Corinthians 15:22 1599 Geneva Bible
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But the question is: are you saved and ‘in Christ’?
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 is the Gospel of our salvation:
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 1599 Geneva Bible
1 Moreover brethren, I declare unto you the Gospel which I preached unto you, which ye have also received, and wherein ye continue,
2 And whereby ye are saved, if ye keep in memory, after what manner I preached it unto you, except ye have believed in vain.
3 For first of all, I delivered unto you that which I received, how* that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,
4 And that he was buried, and that he arose the third day, according to the Scriptures,
*through the shed BLOOD of JESUS
NASA was co-founded by German Nazi’s like the lake Wernher von Braun who was a member of the SS.
SS means Sedes Sacrorem and this means Holy See and that’s the Papacy.
And what does the Papacy stand for?
The Luciferian, Babylonian disguised Roman Emperor.
Now to the issue of Gravity is simply buoyancy & density – Debunked:
Since we BOTH believe in the God of the Bible, we both believe in the Genesis account of creation.
God created the sun, the moon and the stars on DAY FOUR, so THREE ENTIRE DAYS the earth already existed underneath a FIRMAMENT, which God called HEAVEN.
I can prove that the ‘Big Bang’ THEORY was invented by a JESUIT priest: Jesuit Priest Georges Lemaître Invented The Big Bang Theory https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Jesuit+Priest+Georges+Lema%C3%AEtre+Invented+The+Big+Bang+Theory
JESUITS aren’t neutral ‘scientists’: they work for the Vatican, the Luciferian disguised Roman Empire.
Also the ‘evolution’ THEORY wasn’t concocted by neutral scientists, and Darwin wasn’t the first one who came up with this IDEA.
But I digress.
So the earth already existed 3 entire days before God created the sun, the moon and the stars.
This already debunks the whole idea of the so called ‘Big Bang’ and everything that derives from it, unless people are satanists like the Jesuits.
God didn’t create the earth as a SPECK of DUST in a ‘vast and expanding universe’.
Catholic means ‘universal’ and there is NO UNIVERSE.
That’s what Satan wants, because he tries to escape (in his mind) from God’s ENCLOSED FLAT (and ROUND) flat earth system with a firmament.
Yes, there is a force that pulls everything toward the earth, but what is the origin of this force so that buoyancy & density work?
On the other hand there’s also a force that’s keeping the sun and the moon in orbit ABOVE the flat and round earth plane.
How is that possible?
Ever thought of electromagnetism as a possibility?
Now I don’t claim to have all the answers, because I am not God, but could it be possible that ‘gravity’ (the force that makes us feel heavy when we are on earth in air, but NOT in water, is caused by an electromagnetic force, made by God?
I’m Hans, from the Netherlands and I became a flat earth adherent on October 1, 2016, but I already believed in the Geocentric model since 2013.
I recognized you and I’ve seen you being interviewed in a flat earth video on YouTube.
