I do not believe the earth is flat or round, I'm an agnostic when it comes to this issue. This is merely a discussion on an interesting topic.

The reason I would argue that the earth may be flat in this debate is that the curvature of the earth should be noticeable from a relatively low altitude, while balloons have been sent to great heights without observing any curvature. Notice, these were balloons with cameras that have not included fish eye lens cameras. Fish eye cameras bend the earth and make it look spherical, these types of cameras are always used in NASA rockets and the ISS.
