Is the Earth Flat or Round?

//Is the Earth Flat or Round?

QUESTION: Just wanted to ask your opinion on the flat earth movement circulating the internet. If the Bible supports such a claim that we live in a “terrarium” made by Jehovah’s hand through his son. Reason I’m considering it is because if the earth was flat and the sun and moon and stars revolve around the earth. Then there would be no question of a creator, which would be exactly what the elite would want to hide from the masses to promote there ” evolution ” doctrine and to further push Jehovah out of peoples lives. Hope to hear a response from you.

The “elite” certainly do have an agenda. Their demonic agenda is to make us stupid, because dumb brutes are much easier to herd than educated people. Their agenda is a war against the human mind and spirit.

There are many weapons in their arsenal —probably none more mind-numbing than the insipid and degrading programming that oozes out of the television. And now with everyone wired into the Internet, YouTube has become an inexpensive and inexhaustible outlet for some of the stupidest people on the planet to express their “ideas.” Some of the most pernicious being the flat-earthers, who would have us believe that modern science is an elaborate hoax —that the entire NASA project that culminated with the Apollo moon landing was nothing more than a Hollywood stunt.

blackdeath_mainThe ruling powers of Europe have had an anti-science policy in place since the Renaissance made science and art and classical music available to the minds of the common man. The Renaissance was necessary because Europe, which had become the keeper of the Holy Scriptures and the Christian tradition, such as it was, was mired in clergy-imposed backwardness, superstition and illiteracy. That civilization inevitably brought upon itself a literal sickness born from the cultural decay of the appropriately named Dark Ages and was nearly wiped out by wave after wave of the bubonic plague —the so-called Black Death, which ravaged Europe and the Middles East in the 14th century. Some places in Europe lost half of their population.

But the Black Death was a contributing factor in the renewal —the cultural Renaissance. And Christopher Columbus was a Renaissance man. His voyage was not the merely that of an individual, but was a deliberate act of exploration and discovery based upon the scientific facts that were available then. It was a project not unlike the Apollo moon landing.

Prior to Columbus Italian merchants traded with the Chinese and Indians. They could travel overland via the Silk Road, or they could sail around the entire continent of Africa and up the eastern coastline of the Indian Ocean —never losing sight of land for fear of sailing off the edge of the earth.

But Columbus knew the earth was not flat. He was determined to prove it by sailing west in order to go east. While he did not circumnavigate the globe —that was left to his explorer successor, Ferdinand Magellan —neither did the Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria go over the edge of the world, as superstitious sailors feared.

That one can go east by going west is confirmed on a daily basis by a very commonplace activity —air travel. For example, every year millions of people board aircraft and fly around the world. It is common knowledge that a traveler, say in London, can fly east over the continents of Europe and Asia and arrive in Tokyo. However, a traveler in the United States can arrive at that same destination in Japan by flying west across the vast Pacific Ocean. Perhaps the flat-earthers believe that millions of travelers and airline pilots and attendants are all part of a vast conspiracy to make you believe the earth is round.

But use your mind and think, if the earth were flat there would be no seasons. It is because the earth is a sphere tilted 23 degrees on its axis that the angle of the sun changes slightly from day-to-day on a 365 day cycle around the sun – otherwise known as a year. 

If the earth were flat and did not rotate there would be no such thing as hurricanes and cyclones, since it is the rotation of the earth that causes the air mass to spin. The fact that hurricanes and cyclones spin in opposite directions (as does water going down the drain) in the northern and southern hemispheres also proves that the earth is round and spins like a child’s toy top. Here, check out this YouTube video. (Thankfully all YouTubers are not morons.)

6128cjpaper14x1If the earth were flat a compass would not work. In fact, there would be no such thing as north. But compasses do work. Check it out for yourself, buy a box of Cracker Jacks and even a child’s compass will unfailingly point north. Why? Because the Earth’s iron core generates a magnetic field and all magnets have two opposite poles. The north pole is always north no matter where you are.

You can also do a bit of personal investigation. Since we all have Internet and can communicate with people on the other side of the world, why not make an effort to find someone who lives in the opposite hemispheres as yourself. If you live in America, for instance, why not find someone in Australia to help you perform an experiment. Perhaps set up a predetermined time to chat with them online. If it is morning in America ask your messaging partner what time it is where they are. No doubt they will confirm that it is evening. Obviously, a flat earth could not experience light and dark simultaneously.

If you don’t trust them and fear they may be trying to trick you into believing the earth is round you probably cannot be helped.

    How do we take into account the Hebrew map/concept of the universe?

    It seems to contradict the known scientific view.

    • ewatchman

      I doubt think ancient cartographers were inspired.

      • Joel

        . . . Brother King, respectfully, in my humble opinion, you are above this non-sensical dribble. I beg of you, don’t even indulge such stupidity! You have a more serious work and LIFE SAVING responsibility than to get mired in such trivial benign back-and-forth name calling.

        Remember 1 Timothy 1:3, 4.

        • ewatchman

          Yeah, you’re right Joel. I should just lock this post down

    • Man from the lions pit

      Good point just to add it.What Jesus and his apostoles belived ? The only recognized”scientific” model of that time was geocentric.So if this was incorrect truth about magnificent jewel of Gods creation why he didnt correct or disclose the truth about shape of our planet?Or it doesnt matter or they were morons as well?

      • ewatchman

        It is understandable that the ancients may have imagined that the earth was the center of the physical universe. But now there is no excuse for such ignorance. Compared to the vastness of the cosmos the earth is smaller than a speck of dust. And not only is it not the center of the universe, it is not even the center of the Milky Way galaxy or even the solar system.

        • Man from the lions pit

          With whole respect br.Robert the size, form and constalation of our galaxy or whole universe has no dirrect bearing on shape of the earth.These models are able to accomndate both. The ingnorance is present if there is not willingnes to hear other opion.

            I wouldn’t waste a minute of my time listening to some flat earth drivel. Frankly, I am shocked that anyone would believe such nonsense. But it just all goes back to the fact that the world is ruled by the Father of the lie. And i suppose the demons get some sort of perverse amusement by seeing just how much nonsense they can get people to believe. It appears to be limitless.

            • Man from the lions pit

              Im shock of ur replay that prejudge me just by being open minded about this topic.And if am object of demons games I hope u are excluded of it.agape

            • ewatchman

              So, you think it is impossible to go to the other side of the world by going either west or east?

            • Man from the lions pit

              Its posible in both models. Robert and there is plosible explanation to every question related to this topic and model.On top of that currently there is more than 200 Phd scientist who are questioning globe model are openly discussing flat geocentric option.Mainstream ignores this fact same like” All scientist believe in evolution.”Its simly not true.I myslef was not willing to investigate this before but something changed few months ago and I was willing to hear their arguments.There is a lots junks out there on this topic as on anything else.But there is lots of strong arguments which chalenge our learned concepts and perceptive powers.Anyhow everybody can do their own research on that.

            • ewatchman

              The globe is not a model or a theory. It is a fact. Like I pointed out, millions of people fly around the globe every year. You are just being silly if you think people can fly around a pancake earth. You have to be willing to suspend all reason to accept that two completely opposed views are both true. That’s why I say, persons who believe such things probably can’t be helped.

            • Joel

              . . . please kindly read my post below. . .

  • Anderiega

    Robert, you are very kind and patient for entertaining questions like this. I found this YouTube video to be hilarious. http://youtu.be/KvAk9718Jo8

  • Anderiega

    http://youtu.be/KvAk9718Jo8. Robert, you are very kind and patient to even entertain this absurdity. What is happening to people??? Lol. But if we have to go back to basics, at least we can all have a laugh. Only recently have I heard this that is a “serious thing” that people are actually debating. God help the human race!!!

    • T L C

      LOL! This guy is too much. This can’t be true…Wow

  • Man from the lions pit

    Dear bro.Robert.thank you very much for touching this topic.I was for sure one of those you were asking this question via voice mail also email.Finally my waiting was rewarded.What I have to say is I’m disappointed not with that that you don’t believe that the earth is flat but with putting down who believe in this geocentric model or at least are willing to be open minded about it.I consider myself as “flat earth researcher”and spend a lots of time in last few month to here arguments for and against.I don’t know how much time you give to research this topic but to call people like me as “morons” or people who can’t be helps is at least not polite.Anyhow I will not go to further discussion on this .Anybody who has time can do their home work on their own as you mention as well. agape

      Flat earthers glorify stupidity. Maybe that’s what you are into. If so, that’s fine with me. Just don’t expect me to indulge you.

      • Joel

        Brother King, lol!!! You are no doubt right! Lol!!! But still, even ignorant morons have a right to their moronic opinions! Lol! Just look at the non-sensical doctrines espoused by Christendom! Right?!!!

    • Burt Reynolds

      Hello man from the lions pit. You are of course correct. Few of us know the truth about the shape of the earth and Robert does talk a lot of tosh at times. When I was young my father was employed in the aero industry at the edge of the world and we regularly used to throw stones over the edge to see what would happen to them. You may also be familiar with some religions that believe in the rapture? Well, this is where the idea comes from because if you walk off the edge of the earth, you float away as though you are going upwards. It’s also where the term, ‘flat spin’ comes from as it was the updraft from the edge of the world that caused early pilots to go into a ‘flat spin’ before they learnt how to control it. You must have seen this effect for yourself. During the war, my parents emigrated to the other side of the world where is was safe and very quiet, and though it was a long walk, the earth is not that thick, but it’s worth it because the underneath is very pleasant. You get to see the bottom of Everest, one or two deep coal mines and of course, the underside of some of the deeper seas. My wife and I regularly go back there for holidays and we have many friends in the Underling Community there. Paul mentioned them in his letter to the Antipodeans. Chapter 2. V4. My great grandfather was on the other side of the world just where the Titanic sunk and its hull has been sticking out of the Atlantic there since it sank. It’s quite a tourist attraction. You aught to visit it if you haven’t already. It’s referred to as the ‘thin end of the wedge.’

      • ewatchman

        lol. That’s hilarious

  • NWOBS9014

    Flat earther’s are flat heads…

    • Joel

      Good one!!! Lol!

      • NWOBS9014

        Thank you Joel…

    • Man from the lions pit

      Ok thanks for letting me know what is the shape of my head or maybe my mirrow is flat.

      • NWOBS9014

        Hey, No problem glad to help you round it off to a clear understanding…

  • Man from the lions pit

    Seem like I’m only one with flat head here which doesnt bother me but Im surprise that many of u are able to ridicule this ideam.May it be so.Truth is out there for sure for all of us.
