I'm sorry but if you believe the Earth is round, you're ridiculously idiotic and you've been scammed. Can you not see fundamental issues with this? For example, you'd fall off the Earth if you were in the southern hemisphere. I don't believe the Earth is flat either - that's equally stupid. However, I know it isn't spherical and it isn't flat. However, if you combine the two, you get a flat plane inside a sphere (much like our Earth). So therefore the Earth is BOTH spherical and flat.

We have been in space and have seen that the earth is round. Also you can go and look at the moon and see that it is round too.

That could easily be faked to help justify the existence of massive corporations

Space does not have a up or down. You won't fall off the earth because gravity always pulls stuff to the middle of the earth.

How can an existing entity be both a third dimensional object and a two dimensional object? This argument is ridiculous and the Instigator obviously rejects common facts.

When if you think the earth is not round or flat then, what do you think it is?

The dumbest argument on this site.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro never meets his burden of proof, making bare assertions at best. So, arguments go to Con. Conduct to Con for Pro's round forfeit.
