Why do people say the Earth is round when it is obviously flat?

    Of course it's flat! And the moon and all the other planets are also flat. It's just a mind blowing coincident that the moon and all of the other planets have their flat side facing us all the time.

    DID it ever occur to you that if it was BIG ENOUGH OF A SPHERE it would look FLAT if you could see only a little bit of it at once?----It IS that BIG.

    We just need to get it spinning faster and faster, and pretty soon it will be like what the pizza maker throws.

    Lets all start running West-ward as fast as we can.

    One, two ,three...go!

    Only idiots claim the Earth is flat. Therefore, I draw a valid conclusion from your question.

    The Earth is NOT Flat:

    Proof:

    Find yourself a Sail Boat and stock it up and sail around the world.Too expensive, then try this. Go down to the Sea shore where there is a busyshipping port. Watch the Ships as they come and go. You will noticesomething when they get a few miles out to sea. You can't see the Hull(bottoms) any more but you can still see the superstructure and Masts. thena bit longer and all you can see is the Masts.If the Earth was Flat that would not happen.Try something else: Find the Star Polaris (the North Star). Measure theAngle between the North Star and the Horizon. Now get in your car and driveeither North or South 100 miles or more. Now Measure the Angle. It will bedifferent. On a Flat Earth it would be the same.Still not convinced. Time Zones - there are 24 Main Time Zones.Lets say you live in New York City and you have a close friend that youabsolutely trust that lives in Honolulu Hawaii.

    The ground near my house is a hill, so the Earth must be a hill.

    The ground near a swamp is wet, so the Earth must be wet.

    The ground in a city is concrete, so the Earth must be concrete.

    Is it? So you've never seen a hill? You've never seen a river flow? While those things don't prove it's round, not like other things do, they definitely prove it is not flat.
