No, The Earth is certainly not flat. This has been affirmed, Yet a small percentage of people still believe in the flat Earth.

If the Earth were flat, Gravity would force the planet into a ball, Proving that the Earth cannot be flat. However, Flat earthers claim that gravity itself does not exist!

That is not the case, But even if it were, There would still be proof of the round Earth. For example, When people climb higher, They see further. On a flat planet, This would be impossible as going higher would only put you further away from the ground. This proves the curvature of the Earth.

Another notable example is the moon. Eclipses, And even the stages of the moon would be impossible with the flat Earth model. The moon would always be half lit, And as the sun, Moon and Earth could never be in a straight line, Eclipses would be impossible.

To conclude, The flat Earth theory is the height of human stupidity and ignorance. There is no possible way that the Earth could be flat.

Of course the earth is flat if it wasn't flat then why are pencils strait and not curved its so obvious guys if the earth wasn't flat then why are maps flat? And yes i understand globes exist too but its just a fancy ball with a map wrapped around it. Also if the earth wasn't flat how would god be above us all at the same time. If it wasn't flat how come we dont see the earth curve upward. Lastly if the earth was not flat then why is water dry.
