 Pro For those of you who still thinks Earth is flat or if you're up for a REALLY good challenge, please feel free to accept. There will be 3 rounds: Round 1: Acceptance Round 2-3: Open argument formality not required but evidence are! You are allowed to post anything that you think will help support your argument. Good luck.Report this Argument Con Let's go fool.Report this Argument Pro "Let's go fool." I like that XD. I'm going to start off my argument with a picture of Earth taken from outer space by NASA. http://solarsystem.nasa.gov... One can observe from the picture of Earth above that the Earth is round. Many travelers and athletes have traveled across the world in a single direction and has successfully returned to the same exact spot. Some examples of these travelers: http://www.buzzfeed.com... and here's a view of Earth taken by the airplane ARES http://marsairplane.larc.nasa.gov... All these sources would suggest that the Earth is a sphere and round in nature.Report this Argument Con The earth is a sphere, not simply round, as you have proven in your argument for me.Report this Argument Pro A sphere is round. Therefore it can be concluded that if the Earth is a sphere, then it is round. So that would reinforce my statement of "The Earth is round."Report this Argument Con Well i can also argue that the earth is in fact not a sphere, but a sort or sphere oval thing, which is in fact NOT round and in fact a shape with a lot of sides. Also if you were lazy and just wanted to assume it was a sphere it is not because since earth rotates on its axis the centripetal force has pulled it a few kilometers out. http://www.scientificamerican.com...Report this Argument

Hm.. As one of the participants of this debate I'm probably not in a good position to say this but I think what republicofdhar meant to represent with his vote is that he agreed with Con's opinion however Con made the mistake of agreeing with Pro in round two that the Earth is a sphere so there by invaliding his claim that the Earth is isn't round.

What Con should've done was claim in round 2 that Earth isn't actually a sphere and provide evidence for that. In that case Pro will then have to defend against that claim.

I think the vote from republicofdhar was unfair. If you became convinced that one side is correct, then that means the person arguing that side made the better arguments.
