Well Susan miss interrupted the Bible.

Isaiah 40:22:
He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

If it was God saying it, it would say "I" sit enthroned above....
Not "He" sets sit enthroned above....

So how is calling it a lunar disc in today's world different from calling the Earth a circle in Biblical days?
did you notice the seemingly part of your definition? hmmm...
a circle is not a sphere in any definition...

Well your words on evolution are supposedly inspired words of science evidence and you mess and screw that up all the time. Why is that? Because man is not perfect!!!!

Now look up what a disk means in geometry, sorry you lose.

A disk in geometry is everything inside a circumference, when you cant see the circumference because it's shaded it's disk is larger than what is visible. BTW ball is interchangeable with disc,disk or ball in geometry. It's just old school to say disk.

Uhm you can't comprehend much can you "seemingly" meaning it seems like a disc or flat circle. Like to them back it the biblical days they had know way of knowing any different so they seemingly called it a circle.

And a disc is not a sphere either. No matter how many times you want to look stupid by arguing, a disc will never be a sphere.

I done with you for you are just a waste of time and are childish wanting to be seemingly right when you are completely wrong.

Uhm "disc" as they use and disk" what you said are two different words. Nice try though.

seems you didn't even understand the definition you threw out..

Disc definition - any thin, flat, circular plate or object . 2. any surface that is flat and round, or seemingly.

so a disc can be the seemingly flat appearance of a sphere. a circle can never be a sphere.

sorry fool, but you proved your self wrong on this one...

In geometry, a disk (also spelled disc) is the region in a plane bounded by a circle.

Well they aren't my definitions, they're ours. All of ours , I mean I don't have my own set. I may have a few pet definitions maybe (like Jeff Foxworthy), but stick to the accepted ones when communicating seriously.

Let's look at your link definition:

In geometry, a disk (also spelled disc) is the region in a plane bounded by a circle.

plane(geometry) definition - a plane is a flat, two-dimensional surface.

A circle is two dimensional being it has the dimensions of height and width but not depth, therefore is two dimensional.

None of the above define a 3 dimensional sphere, which has height and width and depth. Not even from your definition link of disk.

So let's look at that again. A disc or disk is two dimensional like a circle. Nice try though. May I suggest you take a geometry class and maybe learn something new?

the very definition YOU gave said "or seemingly flat"

Lets apply the same term to the sun.

It just happens that the Moon and the Sun appear the same size in the sky as viewed from the Earth. And since the Moon orbits the Earth in approximately the same plane as the Earth's orbit around the Sun sometimes the Moon comes directly between the Earth and the Sun.

*This is called a solar eclipse; if the alignment is slightly imperfect then the Moon covers only part of the Sun's disk and the event is called a partial eclipse.

*When it lines up perfectly the entire solar disk is blocked and it is called a total eclipse of the Sun.

Partial eclipses are visible over a wide area of the Earth but the region from which a total eclipse is visible, called the path of totality, is very narrow, just a few kilometers (though it is usually thousands of kilometers long). Eclipses of the Sun happen once or twice a year. If you stay home, you're likely to see a partial eclipse several times per decade. But since the path of totality is so small it is very unlikely that it will cross you home. So people often travel half way around the world just to see a total solar eclipse. To stand in the shadow of the Moon is an awesome experience. For a few precious minutes it gets dark in the middle of the day. The stars come out. The animals and birds think it's time to sleep. And you can see the solar corona. It is well worth a major journey.

*They are referring to the unseen part of the sun during the eclipse. Same as the unseen parts of the moon.
