  1. I am a student of ancient history. There is abundant evidence that ancient peoples thought the earth was round.

    Researchers who still say that ancient people thought the earth was flat are either ignorant of history or purposely misleading their audience.

    1. Hi K,
      Fair enough. The audio mentioned the official timeline which I think we can all agree on.
      The story goes:
      ”The concept of a spherical Earth dates back to around the 6th century BC, when it was mentioned in ancient Greek philosophy, but remained a matter of philosophical speculation until the 3rd century BC, when Hellenistic astronomy established the spherical shape of the earth as a physical given. The paradigm was gradually adopted throughout the Old World during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages”

      So it’s old Science, with a big S. Very basic fundamental old Science,. The prevailing ‘intelligent” view, what would be put in the text books.

      I think you bring up another good point, to my mind. So-called Flat Earthers have been made synonymous with backward thinking.
      The general public seems to have developed the idea that people used to think we’d drop off the edge of the world. Hahaha we laugh derisively at the silly old fashioned thinkers. So where does this idea come from?

      Though spherical Earth has been accepted Science in schools for centuries,
      not everyone used to go to school, of course and the uneducated could think what they liked.
      Many would have thought the Earth was flat. Why not? It says it in the Bible.
      Of course the Educated knew better.
      This appears the root of the idea of Flat Earthers being ‘uneducated’ and ‘backward-thinking’..
      They literally were ( often ).
      The educated though, have ‘ known ‘ for years.
      The Ball is old Science, with a big ‘S’ .
      We can agree on that.

      We can also agree that Science ( with the big S ) is very much in question..

      On this basic question of science: ” What do we stand on? ”
      Can we really expect Old Science to have given us the whole truth?
