After the surprising results of the Creation/Evolution, question, what?s the general consensus regarding Flat Earth?  Hopefully might get more responses on this.

I live in North Yorkshire. There's no flat earth here, it is in fact very lumpy and bumpy!
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

It's the same here in Wales!

Seriously, though, I've come across a few 'flat earthers' on Christian internet forums, but I've never met one in real life, in a church. (Maybe they're too embarrassed to admit it)

Ridiculing you? Always?
I didn't know you believed in the flat earth. I thought you were a serious scientist.

Hi @francis drake ,

I am many things, including many stupid things, but a flat earther isn?t one of them.  I think i?ve gotten off to a bad start on here, i?m probs over sensitive, maybe still a bit hurt by comments made by another member, I did used to have a sense of humour!

Apologies

I dont believe the earth is flat,but I do believe that the earth is not spinning, but everything else spins around it. It is much easier to explain how gravity works and how the moon and other planets effect the gravitational force. With this theory, it is not a gravitational pull but an atmospheric push which keeps us on the earth, and the moons passing interrupts this push,hence the high tides etc.
A few things detract from the popular spinning earth theory. One is that it goes against how centri fugal force actually operates, and it goes against how we can stand on the north and south poles and not fly into space.

Hi

Isa 40:21  Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
Isa 40:22  It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
   


It would seam from the above text the earth is round as a circle and we Know if we start walking in a strait line from east to west we will come back to where we started which would prove the earth is not only a circle but round like a ball.

Love and Peace
Dave
