Pro

I accept.

I'll be arguing that there is such sufficient evidence for the claim that Earth has a spherical shape that there remains no reasonable scientific basis for believing otherwise. It's been a while since I've debated Edl on this topic and I look forward to seeing how both of our arguments have changed.

I'd request that any video evidence accompanying an argument be kept at or under 15 minutes per round, for the sake of the debaters' and the voters' time.

Sorry, went to a cousin's graduation a bit away. I'm down to debate this topic. I'll argue that the earth is a spinning ball, you attempt to refute these claims.

basically you'll be convicing me with something irrefutable that the erath is a spinning bal. Everything I observe tells me the opposite

against the spherical earth, I'm still on the fence, even considering concave

I'm not sure if I'm in if we're debating a different resolution. If you're not arguing flat earth theory, then what are you arguing?
