But why isn't the world flat?

I get that it’s not, but it sorta seems like maybe it is. So… why isn’t it?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Have you ever seen something approach from a long way away? Did you notice that you don’t see the whole thing at once, you see the top first? If the earth were flat this would not be the case. Also a flat earth could not have the very useful magnetic poles that function the way they do on our earth, the night and cycle would work completely differently, and gravity would be tricky.

The earth has never seemed flat to me. Just look up in the sky, it is clearly a dome over a round object.

No, no, I’m not asking why we know it’s not flat. I’m asking why it isn’t flat.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

If the world was flat, there would be no reason for anyone to cover that up. Just like if the moon landing was faked, NASA would probably have faked another great feat. They wouldn’t have just done one and stopped, they would have faked a Mars landing or something by now.

I know it’s not flat. I know the reasons. What I still don’t know is WHY.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Because gravity’s attractive force pulls everything together. New particles approach from all possible directions randomly. the average shape of this is a sphere. Also, a sphere has the smallest surface for a given volume and surfaces are instable, so reducing the surface leads to a more stable state (for this reason soap bubbles are round, too).

Cylindrical? Don’t be a three dimensional truther.

Of course the world is flat. This whole ‘round earth’ business is just what the liberal media want you to believe.

You meant to say “lamestream.”

“Liberal” is a false flag.

Maybe we should just all agree that it could have been flat. Perhaps it even used to be.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
