@elatia.g Exactly!

Of course the Earth is round! If it were flat, ships would fall off when they reached the edge.

Yes lovetheworld4real, this is what I believe. But this is my debate, and I don't need you giving further evidence.

All of you say the earth is flat because you're looking at the smaller picture, if you look at a circles lines very close up they appear flat, but if you zoom out you see a perfect circle. Oh, and have any of you heard of gravity? Plus how would we be able to travel around the world without falling off the edge? Do you ever notice that the open ocean seems round? That's because it is. Does anyone know any science?&#128514;

Round doesn't imply a perfect circle but a round figure like a rock. We have proof that the earth is round in satellite pictures. A disk makes no logical sense.

One must simply ask, what is round? The Earth does resemble a spherical body, but remove all the water (from the centripetal force + gravitational pull at the center), and you find a very deformed rock. Mathematically the Earth is no where near round, as round implies an abstract curving perfection. But for an easy way to describe this planet, it is indeed round-ish. From space, the 2D presentation we find from our own perspective does make the planet seem circular in shape.

Thus I conclude, and I believe, that the Earth is round-ish

THE EARTH IS CLEARLY FLAT!!! If the earth was round then the ground would be a slope, but it's not. Round-earthers clearly do not see this. The evidence is right in front of them but they still refuse because they have been brainwashed into believing the liberal agenda of a round earth doctrine. It's shameful.

No, the Earth is clearly flat. Just look down the street. Do you see it curve? No, I didn't think so.
