Contracting Earth Theory, or geophysical global cooling if you want to get all science-y about it, was a theory before the idea of plate tectonics ever came about that said the Earth is actually getting smaller over time, and the shrinking Earth is what causes natural disasters as well as the natural wonders of nature, such as mountain ranges..

NASA Reference Publication that aircraft are tested "on a flat non rotating earth". Also flight paths from nation to nation can be verified on a Gleason Flat Earth Map. There is not one photo of a globe earth.
NASA admits the Blue Marble photos are composites. The bible quotes in this book are not taken out of context/5(). The shape of the Earth was an important question and this book takes us on an exciting and informative journey from the forming of the question in the minds of Descartes and Newton to the final conclusion of the mission and even the circumstances of the deaths of the participants in old age/5(24).
The Earth is almost completely round. The force of gravity would pull the Earth into a perfect sphere shape, but the fast rotation of Earth on its axis, an imaginary line running from the North Pole to the South Pole, reduces the effect of gravity on the equator.
The equator is an imaginary line that runs around the middle of the planet, at its widest point. This book describes in detail the various theories on the shape of the Earth from classical antiquity to the present day and examines how measurements of its form and dimensions have evolved throughout this period, offering profound insights into the broader evolution of human thought.
Moderate Christian apologists have done an astonishingly good job of sweeping under the rug the fact that the OT does indeed describe a flat, disc shaped Earth covered by a. creation and the shape of the earth, bolstering his answers with up to 20 scriptures each.
Rather than presenting an exhaustive compendium of flat-earth scriptures, I focus on those which seem to me the strongest. I also comment on some attempts to find the earth's sphericity in the Bible. ENOCH AND THE STILL FLAT EARTH. When it comes to the Book of Enoch, I know many want to dispute whether or not we should consider it canon, or even a valid source for deriving, confirming and/or elaborating on the canonized Biblical truths.
Many commentaries have been written giving the various perceived pros can cons of doing so. THE EARTH BOOK by Todd Parr includes lots of easy, smart ideas on how we can all work together to make the Earth feel good - from planting a tree and using b.
For those who have ears to hear, this is an excellent resource for scriptural support for a true, biblical cosmology. I read this just two days or so after having a lively discussion with a co-worker about the shape of the earth/5().
Introduction. As I have previously discussed, belief that the earth is flat has rapidly grown of late, largely through dissemination via countless Internet sites and the influence of social unately, many Christians have fallen prey to this, misled into believing that the Bible teaches the earth is flat and that, until five centuries ago, the church likewise taught that the earth is.
The taking shape like clay under a seal would apply to either a disk or a sphere and may be saying more about Earth’s rotation or its manufacture than its actual shape. The irony of choosing Job, Isaiah, and Revelationto sustain the claim that the Bible is a flat-earth book is that these biblical texts.
Earth radius as a datum. Geographers model Earth shape as an ellipsoid, which is a sphere slightly flattened at the poles. They use a datum to reference geographic coordinates on Earth.
A datum describes the shape of the Earth in mathematical terms. It defines the radius, inverse flattening, semi-major axis and semi-minor axis for an ellipsoid.
This is due to Earth spherical shape and rotation. So this verse is very interesting as the phrasing implies it can be both day and night within 1 period of time on Earth, and it is true. Conclusion: The Bible Never Says the Earth is Flat, and Makes Many References to it Being Spherical.
Biblical cosmology is the biblical writers' conception of the cosmos as an organised, structured entity, including its origin, order, meaning and destiny. The Bible was formed over many centuries, involving many authors, and reflects shifting patterns of religious belief; consequently, its cosmology is not always consistent.
Nor do the biblical texts necessarily represent the beliefs of all. “Earth” is mentioned as distinct from “Seas” and cannot refer to Earth as a planet; the same Hebrew word for “Earth” is used in Deuteronomy and the other passages listed above.
While the Bible does not teach that the earth is flat, neither does the Bible explicitly teach that the earth. The Book of Revelation, chapter 7, verse 1, makes the following unmistakable statement about the shape of the Earth: "After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind.
What does the bible say about the flat earth theory. Although the theory of Earth being flat is not directly spoken about, some verses describe the potential shape of our planet. One verse mentions the "four corners of the earth" and could be interpreted as a flat earth belief but this theory was proven wrong by the Church years ago.

Starting with a scientific question about the shape of the Earth the book narrates the incredible journey of french and spanish scientists to measure a degree of latitude at th/5(17). Earth rotates unevenly, spinning faster at the Equator than at the poles.
At the Equator, the Earth rotates at about 1, kilometers per hour (1, miles per hour), while at 45° north, for example, (the approximate latitude of Green Bay, Wisconsin) the Earth rotates at 1, kilometers per hour ( miles per hour).In the case of the earth's shape, scripture never explicitly states the shape of our planet, but it does confirm a round earth implicitly in various places.
For example, the Creation account in Genesis 1 describes all the land as existing "in one place" in Genesis while all waters are gathered likewise.
