Didn't you know that those photos of Earth from space were shot with a fish eye lens?
Speaking of Earth and space, that whole gravity theory is BS. If there was gravity in space, all the planets would fall down.
You sound like my idiot friends, except they`re not kidding (and now you`re gonna say: "But I`m not kidding either!") ahahaha
These idiot friends I mentioned have bought into this theory that you never see the dark side of the moon because it`s a conspiracy and that the reason is because the Earth is flat (somehow that makes more sense to them than any other alternative.) They`re all ES types, BTW.
I have even tried to explain to them the concept of synchronous rotation which as you know is the reason for this phenomenon through a practical demonstration. I used objects to demonstrate why, if the moon rotates around its own axis and around the Earth at the same rate that the Earth does (because the moon was created as a by-product of the same cosmic event that caused both the Earth`s and the moon`s rotation) it causes us to always be looking at one side of the Moon from the Earth. I did this by rotating said objects, representing both the Earth and the Moon both around their axis and the moon around the Earth, emulating the real-life way in which the moon`s path around the Earth and its simultaneous spinning around its axis in the same direction of the Earth`s own rotation cancel each other out.
I performed this demonstration twice to them and it didn`t help them one bit. There was only one guy there both times who didn`t want to go one way or the other, a harmonious, feeling type. People will believe what they want to believe, but not that which exceeds the limits of their intelligence or open-mindedness.
