I never said you could not.
Great, so if you agree that a gas pressure gradient is possible in a container, then you also agree that a gas pressure gradient is possible if the atmosphere is inside a container. But that contradicts what you previously said:

If the atmosphere was inside a container, then air pressure and air density would be constant everywhere as you ascend.

I am not sure either but a lot of people believe that if the earth could shown to be flat rather than a globe that would prove that our existence is not accidental. It could be a case that a lot of the people who are militantly opposed to the flat earth model are so as part of their internal struggle to deny God's Existence at all costs.

I believe that Hermit is not a Catholic- and it is my understanding that the majority of Flat Earthers in Ireland are not Catholic either.
The thing is that it's easy to show that the Earth is flat these days (but yet the simple evidence is lacking)

In fact it should be as easy to show evidence of Gods existence especially in these days of great emerging changes . . .

We're all waiting for Gods influence to shine through (Miracles??)

No.

If the atmosphere was inside a container, then air pressure and air density would be constant everywhere as you ascend.

If an outside force like gravity, as you told us, acts on it, then there would be a gradient. Without an outside force there would be no gradient.

And since gravity is pulling down on the atmosphere creating that gradient, there's actually no need for a container.

And that's what we actually see and define as atmospheric pressure.

I think we can close this chapter and move on.

It would not be constant, because heat from the sun and heat generated by human activity affects the temperate of the air which affects the pressure.

"The most basic change in pressure is the twice daily rise and fall due to the heat from the sun."
"Heating of the earth, which in turn heats the atmosphere, is responsible for the motions and movements of the air in the atmosphere."

Fine, it has run its course, for now.

Which would result in convection currents that would equalise temperatures and therefore pressure. In a container.

In the end, there is no container or need for a container. The pressure we see at sea level is the result of the mass of the atmosphere pressing down due to gravity (as you mentioned).

That's that.

Any new Chinese fake moon videos? You'd imagine there would be a live feed going, solar powered given this historic event!? 🤷‍♂️
