Wylted
Romanii

Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...
