  1. 1. I disagree with you. People just assumed we were at the center. Partly religious

    2. agree

    3. agree

    4. I agree with you. A and B are obvious. D is the sun and moon working together to produce spring tides when the moon is full and new and neap tides when the moon s half moon waxing or waning.
    I suppose your bathtub has tides :), but suspect you need to get to something the size of a great lake to detect them and they are tiny there. Tides work very closely with topography to produce resonances in some estuaries like the Bay of Fundy.
