3. Perspective.
The earth can be perceived as flat or rounded.

Even the bible confirms both perspectives.
It speaks of the four corners of the earth (Eze 7:2, Rev 7:1), and it also speaks of GOD sitting above the circle of the earth (Is 40:22).

There is no curvature in the horizon of this pic. Flat earth does not mean there are no mountains, it means the earth is not a globe or ball.

The picture shows a flat horizon with no curvature from left to right of a far greater distance than the that of the ship in the distance ahead of you. If you had a telescope you would be able to see the whole ship which is proof there is no curvature. If the earth were curved a distance we could see we would easily see it from left to right as well.

Can be, like a plate (round but flat).
Right?

Even modern literature uses the phrase. We don't think that someone actually believes the earth has corners. *it usually is pretty easy to tell someone is using poetic language to describe real events.*

why would you expect to see curvature right to left?

well, no - that shot was taken through a telescope

You would travel in a circle on a flat plain just as you would if the earth were a globe.

The telescope obviously was not strong enough to reach the ship at that distance.

15. He's using the same kind of arguments that evolutionists use. He's ignoring or bending observable evidence in his favor.

Darwinism is the 'flat earth' of the modern era.

it was strong enough to reach the top half of the ship

maybe the bottom half was farther away

Sure, but even the Is passage can be said to be poetic language.

And even both, modern language and scripture, describes things differently depending on which perspective they are trying to convey.

So when we ask the question: Does the bible describe the earth as rounded or cornered?, we can say "both" depending on the perspective of the point being made at the time, even though "rounded and cornered" are contradictory.

Another case in point from scripture that shows a contradictory statement can bee seen in two different scriptures:
The parables of Matt 13 tells us in one place that one sows all the seeds, and then tells us in another place that the devil sowed also.
So when we ask the question: Does GOD sow all the seeds?, we can answer yes or no depending on which perspective the two different statements were being made for.
