Actually, this isn't true at all.

It states in YeshaYahu (Isaiah) 40:22. "It is He who sits above the "circle" of the earth, and its inhabitants like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in." Of course, they wouldn't of used "circle" in the Hebrew translation, but the  "chug" meaning "circle" "round" and "compass" in the Strongs (2328)  Since "chug" also mean compass, that would define the four corners of the earth, North, South, East, and West. Not literal "four corners" like a square or rectangle.. Sure, some people also say that they could of thought the earth was a circle and flat, like a coin, but that too is false. Many times in the Scriptures it says  "The Sea and its deep" Also meaning "Its depth" So tell me, how can a flat coin like earth have depth? It can't.   Other Civilizations all knew the earth was round, like Egypt for example. If The Egyptian knew, why not the Hebrews?

What the Bible teaches us about Earth:


Isaiah 40:22

Teaches us that Earth is a flat disk, like a CD or a pancake.


Psalm 93:1 + 96:10

Teaches us that Earth can't be moved, that it's immovable.


Job 38:13

Teaches us that people can be thrown off the edges of the Earth.

I know you're wrong, you don't have to tell me twice :) Also,

Job 38:14

Teaches us that Earth is flat like a wax seal on a letter


Job 9:6

Teaches us that Earth stands on pillars


So... how long will you wilfully keep remaining an ignorant, bigot, uneducated idiot? I'm just wondering...

The bible was written by mankind, in a time where one man was a leader and humans needed to believe in something.

But I do totally agree! ^^

To be fair, it's true that historically, people have generally known that the earth was spherical since well before the bible was written [link]
But on the other hand, they also knew less about the nature of the world and universe than most modern 9-years-olds do today. It's actually pretty funny and maybe a little embarrassing to see how much they clearly couldn't even begin to understand. This is not something that anyone should be drawing any instruction from.

actually no “He described a circle upon the face of the waters, until the day and night come to an end.”
