Questions, questions....
First. Is the earth flat or round? There had been recent debate about this and while I was first sceptical about a flat earth, after listening carefully to the reasons for a round (Like a ball) and a flat (Round but flat) earth,  I have to admit that a round like a ball earth is questionable.  I say that I'm not 100% sure either way on this one, though I'm more on the ball shaped idea slightly....
Does the earth spin? I think not but all spins round the earth. This conclusion I fathomed out through attempting to explain how gravity works on a spinning earth, and I have to conclude that it can't work given the simple laws of physics.
The moon is an interesting subject.  From this earth no matter what phase the moon actually is in, I can only say I have seen the one side of it. It could even be as flat as a pancake (But larger!) and it would look the same, and this leads me to the very next question. "Is it really true that man set foot on the moon?" We dont have proof of this. It could be the earth based filming was necessary for demonstration purposes only (As it does not take a genius to quickly realize the fimage of the various landings have not occurred on the moon but somewhere on earth).
There is certainly a lot to think about here.

MG,
      I think you have got the times of the year mixed up.

It is Christmas not April the first.


On the off chance that you are serious start reading the classics, Bede etc and you will discover that he and the other ancient authors knew that the earth was round.
The flatearth like spagetti monster is not a christian idea but an atheists idea.

Spaghetti monster? Not heard of him. I'll need to take care when opening the next tin.

Regarding the original post, none of us can take any previous learnt information for granted as truth. We have to test everything for ourselves to see if it is true.

What amazes me is that space could  be infinite, if it is then Buzz lightyear has a false "TO INFINITY AND BEYONDDDD"

How can there be a beyond to something that has no ending ?

If the universe continues to expand forever then gravity would cease to exist.

Other things I find totally fascinating are "dark matter" and "black holes" from where no light can escape...

Companies such as DSI, and Space-X - are putting millions now into space travel to mine on moons and planets. asteroids - and to reach outside of our earth to forest for valuable materials .

This kind of thing has always fascinated me

dark matter is a bodge to explain what atheist theories cannot explain without this bodge.
That alone should tell you that the theory is faulty.

It is worth mentioning that Christian physaists have suggested an explanation that involves a definet center and an edge to the universe and this can explain the universe with out the need for dark matter/energy.
As it also acknowledges a creator it is far more likely to be accurate.

Black holes are still a theory.
