What is the shape of the Earth?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Back in high school we were all taught the Earth has a spherical shape. It rotates around its axis and around the Sun just like all other planets of the Solar system do. That was an absolute scientific fact with no doubt.

But did you notice a few years back we started to see lots of hype in Internet and especially Youtube around so called ‘Flat Earth Theory’? The followers of the theory claim the Earth map looks like the one on the official UN logo surrounded by ice wall of Antarctic and North Pole located in the middle.

They present a bunch of arguments to prove their theory. Like visibly perfect flat horizon, or why we don’t feel speedy earth rotation, or water surfaces cannot curve by laws of physics etc. Some celebrities and scientists support their ideas too :) 

And they reject pictures and videos of the Earth taken from Space as having fisheye effect on and ‘photoshoped’. They claim conspiracy of NASA and governments who hide the truth from people.

What do you think of this theory? Why the ancient flat earth beliefs revive in the 21’st century? What arguments would you tell ‘flat-earthers’ to prove they are wrong?

Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions :)

On the one hand, if one personally has not been in space and did not see that the earth is round , could doubt that , but there are telescope with which you can see a round shape of other planets , hence earth is the logic to be circular . If the earth is flat , they  have too many people to enter into the conspiracy , it is unlikely that such a secret could long exist .

bible verse say Isaiah 40:22,     He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,

and spreads them out like a tent to live in.   :)

I do not think that in our time you can hide such secret conspiracies. I already believe in aliens.
