I think that Jesus was correct when he said that the world is flat. I know that CHRISTopher columbus was just a lie that was made up by Jesus to cover up his obviously correct theory. He was made up be Jesus. THEY BOTH HAVE CHRIST IN THEIR NAME!!!!! ITS A CONSPIRACY I SWEAR! Plus one time I almost fell of the earth.

Christopher Columbus, known as the first person to find the earth was round was not originally the first with this theory. In fact most philosophers believe that Christopher Columbus made this discovery by accident,His mission was to voyage to the indies and bring back spices and riches to his Queen.Many men were scared to go with him because they thought that the earth was indeed flat. The closer that their ship traveled to the equator, the more they feared certain death,folktales in the year 1942( the year of Columbus's first voyage to america) spoke of monsters and beast that could swallow ships whole a myth also associated with the Bermuda triangle but instead of falling off the face of the earth their ship continued to explore the pacific ocean. Admiral Columbus wrote about this journey is his journal known as the Dario of Admiral Columbus translated from his native tongue (Spanish ) to English.

Technically a definition of flat means relatively smooth, so all that needs to be proven is that Earth is relatively smooth.

I know that @lexi's sources are off, and her grammar is not the best, but I will vote for her. As she said, this is stupid.

Of course there is a group of historians who think this may have been a folktale.

Lately, however, evidence has come to light promoting this story. As recently as 1361 (last year), archaeologists have discovered remnants of the famed 'Berlin See-Saw' in its supposed site in Laos. Last month Dr. Henry Jones Jr. discovered a human-shaped hole in the ground in Plymouth with a sign next to it that read as follows, 'MLK Jr. wuz heer'.

The sign was carbon-dated to the year 2012, all but confirming the MLK American discovery narrative.

@21MolonLabe:

Sorry, but you're mistaken. Lincoln may have discovered it in 1776, but 31 years earlier, in 2012, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was standing on a see-saw when the Berlin Wall fell on the other side, launching him over to the Americas.

What most people don't know is that Christopher Columbus was not the first person to discover America. Abraham Lincoln discovered it in 1776,

And the journal is actually called the Diaro of Christopher Columbus.
