    The Earth is flat!

    Isaiah 40:22 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stetches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;

    Unlike you people, I've been fortunate enough not to be brainwashed by the government. Our world is flat and you know it! Science is a lie created by Satan to divert people away from God.

    All of these nonsense like the theory of relativity, evolution, etc. are just rubbish cooked up by propagandists to make the average person believe in lies.

    Quick, grasshopper, before the obvious happens, what's the punch line?

    Welcome Lam ... I think.

    Are you being serious or is your post tongue-in-cheek? You might want to read the FAQ's if you are being serious.

    Looking down on a sphere would still appear as a circle.

    Well, duh-uh, of course the earth appears as a circle to "he" sitting above it.
    "...Now the preacher looked so baffled
    When I asked him why he dressed
    With twenty pounds of headlines
    Stapled to his chest.
    But he cursed me when I proved it to him..."

    Well, the truth can be stranger than fiction. Apparently, there are folks who believe the Earth is indeed flat. The Flat Earth Society. Perhaps Mr. Lam is a "card carrying member" of this organization?

    He's probably not only a card-carrying member, but also head of the local area network!

    Oh, sorry, I was reading the spelling in frogesque's post.

    If you think about it, if there was a great flood, wouldn't it squish the earth flat from all that mass?

    Hmmm, this has potential.

    Maybe I should start writing a book on this theory?

    How could you have a great flood on a flat Earth? It would all run off the edges.

    That's the beauty of it. If all the water flattened the earth, then the water would run off after.


    You do realize I'm kidding? Are happy faces required??

    Isn't falling off the edge what they worried about in Columbus' day? I always wondered what was underneath. :wink:

    No, even Columbus's detractors knew it was a sphere.

    Wasn't it Lisa from the Simpsons who extolled 'Yertle the Turtle' as "probably the best book ever written on the subject of turtle stacking"?

    There's great irony here. I only wish I could tell from where it comes...


    And everyone knows that the other side of the Earth is home to the Antipods, who walk on their hands, and have their faces in their bellies.

    Douse this make me a Antipode :-? 8-[ :P
    Someone should invest in a massive blimp and put all the FEB's (flat earth believers on it), now here's the great idea instead of crashing it into the ocean make it fly at a low altitude all the way around so they can see first hand.

    and;
    The original Hebrew word for circle is "khug". It meant "roundness" or "sphericity".

    wait a minute! the world may be flat, but it is resting on the back of 4 elephants (Berilia, Tubul, Great T'Phon and Jerakeen) standing on the back of the Great A'tuin, the star turtle, eternally swimming through space.


    right? 8-[
