Soil is flat, I win.
You didn't define earth in the first round, so I did it for you

Soil is not flat in any way, shape, or form. And plus, I specified that this would be debating the belief that the Earth isn't a sphere. And, I said in my rules, "No semantics." So no, you didn't win.

Exactly earth is soil, isn't it. I did no semantics. Soil is pretty much flat everywhere.

Do you know what semantics are? You are trying to attack me for me not defining "Earth". That is ridiculous considering i specified that this was for flat earthers. The Earth is a sphere, so how is the soil flat? Ugh, why did you accept this?

Yeah what are semantics I am not sure.
Flat earthers means people who believe in flat soil. Soil is always flat, the ground isn't a sphere now is it??

... Why did you accept this? Soil isn't flat. The Earth is a sphere, and soil goes all around it. Therefore, it isn't a sphere.

The earth is soil, it is flat, and the planet it is on is a sphere but soil is flat.

gg no re. A Spherical Earth is basically a truism. There's so much evidence in support of a spherical earth compared to... the Bible and shaky conspiracies about NASA! Pro's not going to win.
