Is The Earth Round Or Flat?

What can you see in the picture above: is the Earth round or flat? Some even say that the Earth is spherical in shape! This post is partly inspired by the post of @CaptAlbertWhsiker regarding the “Flat-Earth Theory/Belief” of the basketball player Kyrie Irving. He maybe a great NBA player but I would not buy this cheap shot. As early as the 1500 the question on whether or not the Earth is round or flat has long been settled with the Magellan-El Cano Expedition (1519-1522) circumnavigating the Earth. The above satellite picture of the Earth further proved that the Earth is round and not flat. I wonder if Mr.Irving was absent from his classroom when his or her teacher was teaching about Earth Science? What if I tell Mr. Irving that the ball that he is using in basketball is flat and not round? Or maybe he is using a flat ball in basketball? Oh my goodness Mr. Irving your claim insult our intelligence and the intelligence of the whole scientific community. Your claim Mr. Irving is what I call a very long shot!

Everyone is entitled to their opinion I guess. Some say there is no global warming others say there is, some say there is no God, others believe in a God. Is the world round? I believe the scientists for now but it is possible that they may find the earth is square in 50 years, then I will believe them too. what do I know?

@Freelanzer Yes everyone is entitled to his or her stupidity my friend---that's the beauty of democracy. But the question whether or not the Earth is round or flat is an ESTABLISHED FACT and no one can argue against facts, unless one is out of his or her mind or have some intellectual dishonesty or intellectual arrogance my friend.
@mandala100 It is called thinking outside the box - Some people think people who accept as fact every thing they are told are mentally diminished in some way - of course I disagree since I believe everyone has a right to their opinion and I am not in the habit of calling people who think differently "stupid"
