Our Earth- Round or Flat???

Since when was the earth ever flat?

I mean it is scientifically proven hundreds of years ago, and since when was GOD ever more believable than SCIENCE.

And For Your Information Saintlouis, if the earth was flat, you won't be able to travel back from China, but if the earth was round, then you could.

Think of it as a ball. If you travel in a straight line, you'll end up in the same place, but if the earth was flat, then you'll just fall off the edge.

Of course it is round, people tell us that it is. We all know that everything we are told is true and therefore it must be round.

I can't believe anyone would discredit the almighty authority of science, since it is without fault. Humans never make mistakes. Science I worship with all my heart, it is my god. Our next cult meeting is the third Monday of every month.

Uh? Explain to me when science has ever been more right than god about anything? How about never, because science was invented by Satan in order to sway god's sheep away from the light.

You're so dumb and ignorant, Thewayitis.

The Earth is actually flat. Its all lies that Science has been spreading around. I mean, last week, my friend disappeared. Apparently, he fell off the edge of the plate-like Earth :) And then again, if the Earth was round, wouldn't our houses be tilted?

Haha, sorry for the stupidly sarcastic argument. But this really is a stupid debate. Of course, its round, dumbo. I don't even know why I presented an argument ;)

NASA is part of a global conspiracy to promote roundness of the earth, and to undermine the infallible bible to promote atheism.

Read my dispute for your argument at the top. The bible does not say that the Earth is flat. And why would NASA go through all that trouble? Couldn't they just say that god doesn't exist? It would be so much easier. For a conspiracy, I mean.

The Earth is IN FACT round, thought it doesn't feel that way. Earth FEELS flat because human vision is not good enough too see far enough to register the curvature Earth, that is, most of the time. This is the exception: When we see the "horizon" over the ocean (where Earth meets the sky) we are actually seeing the curvature. At the point where our eyes see the sky and water meet IS the farthest point before the curve of Earth's surface prevents us from seeing anything past that point.

The earth is most DEFINITLY flat. The moon proves it. Then only reason you see a cresant moon is because the earth's shadow (which is round and sperical) is reflected on the moon's surface by the sun.

If the earth was any kind of flat, there would never be a shadow, on the moon or other wise.

And doesn't a huge flat maplike rectangle of nothing floating in space look and sound illogical and stupid?

Do you know what Atlantic city looked like , they created a city looked like the original upper part of universe (i.e Leaving the hell )of whole original land , which was flat (i.e original land is very huge land and if we try to put earth on that land it's just 0.0000001% may be more less of 0.0000001% original land ,imagine dude. ) . And our earth is not round nor flat it's semi sphere attached to land, but through satellite's we had got some images , looking to that , my father said that may be we had shifted to upper planet( some how?) leaving the original land . And our planet looks round (may be or may not be). And what physics laws and electromagnetic and gravitational forces and alpha are not same in outer world & all physics laws fail into black hole why? . And the scientists are searching other planets like earth in this universe but they need to look down what's there , they may not reach there , but but secrets untold.

Well back in 1492 Christopher Columbus thought the earth was flat, but this was before any type of technology or science existed! Today we can clearly see that the earth is perfectly round like that of a basketball!!!!LOL!!!

The Earth is round because the photography from outer space shows the world to be round.

We have photos of the earth, and even before that - we could observe the curvature of the earth during eclipses. Even ancient people could figure that out ;)

Side: Round

This is really pretty simple. Flat Earth doesn't allow for lunar eclipses, the tidal-locked face of the moon, phases of the moon the same from all parts of the world, seeing the same constellations in the Southern sky from all points in the Southern hemisphere, the accuracy of a simple compass, or the counter-rotation of stars in opposing hemispheres (to name but a few common phenomena). As these things all exist, are confirmed, and both predicted and explained by the globe model, Earth is clearly a globe, and not flat.

Side: Round

I could take the easy rout and call it round (there is a lot of fairly convincing photographic, video, testimonial and circumstantial evidence), but according to a book written by people with almost no knowledge of astronomy, geology or gravitation, the Earth is flat. Any "scientist" who says otherwise will burn in hell. What next, continental drift?

Flat (obviating also the mountains and the basins left by asteroids).

If you never leave the earth on a skyrocket, then the earth will still be (infinitely) flat for you, because you'll always reach the same point walking on it... definitely as a kind of paradox, but very logical if you realize that who's over the surface of a sphere and doesn't know that, will see it as a plain undoubtedly.

I think that it's not a reason to dispute someone's argument. I'm sorry if I cannot write legibly as you say, but the English is not my mother tongue. It's easy to realize that you don't mind about the topic, because you just criticized the form of my argument, and didn't even try to ask for a better explanation. If you want me to have a better redaction, it's ok, but also I shall ask you to don't attack the person with your arguments next time, but to the content. Let's do this more interesting, right?

Bermuda triangle really? It's a myth. Quote from the wiki " In a 2013 study the World Wide Fund for Nature identified the world’s 10 most dangerous waters for shipping, but the Bermuda Triangle was not among them.[6] Contrary to popular belief, insurance companies do not charge higher premiums for shipping in this area.[3]" Either way it wouldn't fit in a flat earth model either.

The bible clearly suggests a flat circular earth with a dome, god lies at the apex of the dome, and the earth sits upon pillars, with the four cardinal directions at the ends of the earth giving out hail, storms, etc. There are windows in the sky that let in rain.

Therefore all this round-earth science and cosmology is a conspiracy to discredit the bible. All the photos and videos are forgeries created by the government-owned NASA.

I saw seven golden lampstands, 1:13 and in the midst of the lampstands was one like a son of man. 46 He was dressed in a robe extending down to his feet and he wore a wide golden belt 47 around his chest. 1:14 His 48 head and hair were as white as wool, even as white as snow, 49 and his eyes were like a fiery 50 flame. 1:15 His feet were like polished bronze 51 refined 52 in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar 53 of many waters. 1:16 He held 54 seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp double-edged sword extended out of his mouth. His 55 face shone like the sun shining at full strength. 1:17 When 56 I saw him I fell down at his feet as though I were dead, but 57 he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid! I am the first and the last, 1:18 and the one who lives! I 58 was dead, but look, now I am alive – forever and ever – and I hold the keys of death and of Hades! 59 1:19 Therefore write what you saw, what is, and what will be after these things. 60 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and the seven golden lampstands is this: 61 The seven stars are the angels 62 of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

This is from bible.org. You can check if you want proof, but it is from the bible. It says nothing about the earth, only the pillars that are the churches.

Earth is flat to give a better climatic condition because,in the bulgy equatorial tropical forest survive on regular evaporation and precipitation of water,and shortened towards pole to decrease tree cover towards pole,and give freezing climate in poles.

Who knows... We probably are being led to believe that it is round, while successful astronomers and stuff way ahead of their time believed it was flat. Possibly it is flat but has some portal or something that puts you at the beginning once you reach an end. Just something to think about right?
