I think that the Earth is spherical (or at least closely spherical). I include the brackets as it isn't perfectly spherical, but is virtually spherical. I am mostly interested in the flat earth believers, but if you think it is shaped like a pear or steak or whatever then I will debate you as well. Accept the debate if you think the Earth isn't spherical.

The Earth is shaped like a BANANA. And there is nothing you can do about it, sire. I wish thou good luck. Dost thou even lift?

Well I... I don't know what to say. All the evidence, logic and reasoning you have given me it's just too much. Of course! How could the earth not be shaped like a banana?

Con

I see you agree with me now. But I have to give proof , don't I?

My proof is through the best reasoning you will ever see -

    1. What do you do to Earth? We grow things on it.

    1. What grows on Earth? Grass and trees.

    1. What colour do grass and trees turn in autumn? Yellow, they turn yellow.

    1. So, what else grows on Earth, starts out green and then turns yellow? A BANANA, SIRE!


This clearly proves the Earth is banana shaped. That's why the minions live here!
Side note : Do you know why it can't be flat? Because paper is flat and we make books out of paper. BUT WE DON'T MAKE BOOKS OUT OF EARTH. So clearly flat earth believers have not done enough reasoning and I respect that you are not one of them.

Awaiting your last argument. (COME ON, THROW ONE NICE LAST ARGUMENT AT ME!)

I identify as trans-banana and the terminology you have used is offensive.

See, I didn't expect anyone to vote here, but the voter gave my opponent three points because of more convincing arguments. He didn't even argue. -_-

If nobody accepts edit the debate to challenge Edlvsjd

Edlvsjd is the most vocal flat Earther on this website. Check out my debate to predict the flat Earthers approach, trust me Flat Earth people are entrenched and you will need all the help you can get. This video should aid you as well.

Reasons for voting decision: Con presented an actual argument, while Pro did not. Simple win to Con. Also, Pro was a bit sarcastic in Round 2 to Con, so I'll give Con conduct as well.
