No, it does not mean "they are not sure". LMFAO! It means it has been used with that meaning. Please note that "sphere" is not a use that it has been interpreted as using.
<quoted text>
How many times do you have to be told that there were words that meant that could be used to describe a sphere? They did have a word for "ball". That was the word that MikeF referred to. The word used in Isaiah was not used for sphere. How deep into denial are you today?
And no, I did not use "Bible hater sites". I actually used Bible sites for some of my claims I used an atheists site, not a Bible haters site, to go into more detail.
Is a football a sphere? Is a rugby ball a sphere? Nope but they are balls huh? So ball does not mean sphere.

Mike F is more grown up and more of an adult than you are. It is that simple. You believe you are never wrong even when shown you are wrong you have an excuse or new rule. You are a self-fed ego that never gets his appetite filled. You see everyone, and I mean everyone even people you know, you see them as wrong unless they agree with you and if they show you different than what you believe/say you always have a backup excuse of you should know what I meant, you mis-took what I said or some other BS or a new rule.
That lil Sub are the facts.
Please, when you act like an adult then you can claim that someone is more of an adult than I am. Until then all I can hear is the simple prattling of a child.

And you do not pay too much attention to my posts. I have admitted that I am wrong many times over. Unfortunately you are such a fool that there has not been a case where I was wrong and you were right that comes to mind.

And don't try to blame me for your poor reading comprehension. My posts are always clear enough for anyone with at least half of a brain.

replaytime if anyone his a child here it is you. You can be shown to be wrong countless times and yet you never admit it. At best you will say something completely idiotic on the order of "I trust MikeF because he is not mean to me".

One more time, if you want a polite discussion it is all up to you.

See, when you are wrong you dig a deeper hole and try to hide in it.

Please quit being a moron, you are not this stupid.

Did they have American footballs or Rugby balls in ancient Israel? If not your question is completely idiotic.

Then it should be simple for you. Show the word that meant sphere. I gave you ball/circle(the one I got from Mike. You gave one for circle. But where is your word for sphere or words that could be used to describe a sphere around those times. A ball, a circle could not describe a sphere for they did not even have a effin clue what a sphere was back then. That is a fact that you cannot seem to grasp.
OH MY GAWD!! Yes they did. You were given examples.

Why are you stuck on stupid. Go back an reread the posts.

I guess I need to remind you what the discussion was about.

The Bible in several places describes a Flat Earth, either by word or by action. The specific verse being discusses uses a word that does not mean "sphere". Why do you want the word for ball? You have already been given it. The word used in the verse under discussion is not used for a spherical object, even according to Biblical sources.

It is close enough on this subject since they got the answer right. They did not list the particular sources that they used to get their answer. So what? Are you disputing it? I gave Biblical resources that showed they were correct. They also listed some other parts of the Bible that clearly shows the people of that time thought that the Earth was flat. The Bible was written as if the Earth was flat.

One more time, why are you trying to defend the Bible like a fundamentalist?

Let’s have people input on this one. I know ther will be some make stupid comments but I also know some will be honest. I actually don't expect much but one never knows.

1. How many of you believe they knew what a sphere was 2300yrs ago?

2. How many ways did they have, if any to tell that the earth was even round 2300yrs ago?

3. How many of you think back when the bible was written that they knew earth was even round?

4. How many of you think that if you look out at the horizon over land or water that the earth looks like it ends?

5. If you knew the word circle and you could spin around in a circle and see earth’s horizon out everywhere you looked in that circular spin, would they think 2300yrs ago earth was a circle as well?

I asked why you were defending the Bible like a fundamentalist. It is really no big deal that the people who wrote the Bible thought that the Earth was flat. Except too fundamentalists. Have you been lying to us all of this time about your beliefs?

No, it is not a "yes no question".

Have you stopped letting your from wife abusing you anally? Answer yes or no.

They did not have footballs or rugby balls at that time. At that time balls were spherical.

I would not have to explain this to a person who had more than a room temperature IQ.

So you admit you can't back up what you say and you quit. You lose! Good to know. According to you if someone doesn't back what they say, they lose. I am just playing by your rules

What a maroon. You are now claiming in effect that the people of that time could not identify a ball by its shape since they had no word for "sphere".

So all you can do is to ask a series of questions that in no way supports your idiocy. Good job moron.

No, the people of that time were not as big of a fool as you are.

It does take a bit of an education to realize that the Earth is not flat. The people of that time were not as idiotic as you are. They knew the difference between a circle and sphere, even if they did not have a specific word for "sphere".

You are defending the mistakes of the Bible. Probably just because you don't like me. Or perhaps because you are an a-hole.

Only an idiot or a "Sub" would use them thinking a flat earth as a bad thing. They did not know better. Sphere did not exist! Ball was a toy! Circle was a shape! Get it yet?

Do you think the Egyptians should have referred to the pyramids as a trigonal?

No moron a ball was a toy. Do you think they had the knowledge to hold that ball up and say this is the shape of our earth?

Don't give some BS answer. It is Yes or No
