There is no proof that the Earth is round. It is just propaganda made up by the brainwashed sheeple of the Earth. The only evidence points to a trapezoidal planet. Open your eyes people!!!

A trapezoid is a 2-dimensional polygon with exactly one pair of opposite sides parallel to each other. Since the earth is 3-dimensional, it is impossible for it to be any kind of polygon. Debate over, vote Con.

Rotation is proof the earth has depth in dimensional space.

However.

The Earth rotates at about 1,037 miles an hour. Cut out a flat piece of cardboard into a Trapezoid and glue it to the center of round dowel stick on a forty-five degree angle. After it dry"s spin the dowel stick with one side on a flat surface and the other in your figures. This is not even close to 1,037 miles per hour. What shape do you see while the trapezoid disk cardboard shape is spinning?
It is highly improbable not impossible by laws of Physics.

To say that the Earth is 3 dimensional is the most ignorant statement I have ever heard. You have 0 evidence proving that the Earth is 3 dimensional.
