    Earth is round like a basket ball but with a slight bluge around the middle.

    Why and How ?   GRAVITY.   When a body reaches a certain Mass, gravity takes over and shapes it into a ball.

    Don't believe me?  Find yourself a Sail Boat and go for a trip all the way around.

    A Giant "Sphere". more or less, as GRAVITY from its mass pulls equally from all Directions-----Just as the air pressure in a bubble pushes OUT equally in all directions----Forming a sphere.-------The centrifical force from the rotation causes the planet to bulge a bit at the Equator---but only a handful of miles, which means practically nothing with an otherwise 8,000 mile Diameter.---So it it is not a perfect sphere, But your eyes couldn't see any variation.

    The center bulges because if the spin and gravity from sun and moon along that axis

    Here's what the Bible says:

    Isaiah 40:22- There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth. The earth is a Circle.

      I say it is true but MISINTERPRETED by Ill informed Theologians.    As a Scientist I can see many of the Allegorical tales conform to modern Science.

    none of those, it is an oblate spheroid, almost a perfect sphere, as anyone past the age of 6 knows.

    why? because a sphere is the shape of least energy, which gravitational force tends towards.  Because of its rotation, there is a slight bulge around the equator, hence oblate spheroid instead of sphere.

      Essentially just a "SPHERE"  The "bulge" thing is misleading as it is only two or three miles or so in a diameter of 8000 miles, we couldn't see it visually.
