How do you debunk the flat Earth argument, which states that in a spherical world water should fly off at the equator due to the spin of the Earth (over 1,000 MPH)?

That Earth sure is spinning quickly, isn’t it? Once around every 24 hours! Wow. Can you imagine being out in space and looking down, waiting to see things fly off into space from the equator?

The problem is, when you’re out there in space looking down, the planet is rotating so slowly you can’t see it move. It takes a whole day just to go around one time. You could stare and stare at it and hardly notice it turning at all at that pokey speed. Nothing’s going to fly off the equator into space at that rate.

These stupid “flat earth” people have no common sense. They give these stupid arguments just to confuse people.
