But the Earth is flat - everyone knows.

It rides upon the back of a gigantic tortoise;
Which in to turn stands upon the back of another gigantic tortoise.

It's tortoises all the way down.

claymaker, that was a joke. A flippant remark. A jest. The Greeks figured out the Earth was roundl Erasthostones esmateded the circumference of the Earth by observation and extapolation all while standing in his garden in Alexandria, Egypt. He was off by a small amount, but considering the data he was using was oot extremely accurate, what he did was very, very impressive.

Oh I know. I was just rambling. It generally doesn't bother me anymore if someone thinks the Earth is flat or whatever.
