"The myth of the Flat Earth is the modern misconception that the prevailing cosmological view during the Middle Ages saw the Earth as flat, instead of spherical."
"The idea that educated men at the time of Columbus believed that the earth was flat, and that this belief was one of the obstacles to be overcome by Columbus before he could get his project sanctioned, remains one of the hardiest errors in teaching."
"During the early Middle Ages, virtually all scholars maintained the spherical viewpoint first expressed by the Ancient Greeks. By the 14th century, belief in a flat earth among the educated was nearly nonexistent."
You were saying numbnuts? It must suck to be bi-polar. Today you must be the lying scumbag Dogen. I like the other Dogen much better.
Bait and switch. The issue is what the authors of the bible believed, no what people knew at the time of Columbus. We already know that educated people at the time of Columbus knew the world was round.
You are just attempting to weasel out of the FACT that bible writer called the earth a "disk" or "circle" because that is what they believed.
I consider your running 2000 years into the future as your resignation of the above point.
Thank you very much.
