I was wondering how long it would take for the creationist flood myth guys to come out of the woodwork.
Between now and then, tons of deception prepared for millenia will appear to reign supreme.
Out of curiosity, how would biblical flooding occur? The entirety of all ringwoodite escapes from a gash in the Earth 400 miles deep, the Hydrogen and Oxygen then unbind from the mineral, then transform to liquid water, washes over the land, floods for a month or so, and then presumably soaks back into the Earth as to not leave a gaping pocket underground, and re-bonds with the ringwoodite, while, up on the surface, the gash which released it all to begin with manages to patch itself up?
In Hebrew the word translated as "circle" in Isaiah 40:22 it is chuwg, this means "circle" not "sphere." Strong's Concordance circle describe a circle.
In 40:22. The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament circle the earth is conceived as a disc.
In the Hebrew-Aramaic and English Lexicon of the Old Testament: "draw round, make a circle." If a sphere were meant, the Hebrew word "duwr" would have been used.

He's the one who sits above the disk of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers. He's the one who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to live in,biblehub.com...
The sad part is you dont see your bad logic.
Most people in medieval times were very religious...including scientists...none of them thought the earth was flat. If the bible taught the earth was flat it would have been a common belief.
If the first half of the links you give are texts taken out of context why would I keep reading them?
And the historian you mentioned proves that nobody ever really thought the earth was flat...you are so far behind on this. I promise you I'm not the one being embarrassed here. Your ignorance speaks volumes.
And again you are using metaphors to try and prove a point. If I say my arms the size of a cedar does it mean my arm is literally the size of a tree. The text is meant to make a point and every biblical scholar knows that.
