The continents have edges by no stretch of the imagination.
And the context in which pillars is used could easily be symbolic.
So again the most any of you have amounts to an argument.
You have know proof the Bible is wrong about anything.
But no one can stop you from be wrong going forward and
continuing to make the same tired old claims that really only
amount to nothing any way. Keep trying.

Actually I'm using the Euclidean Geometry definition of a circle.
Circle
A circle is a simple shape in Euclidean geometry. It is the set of all points in a plane that are at a given distance from a given point, the centre; equivalently it is the curve traced out by a point that moves so that its distance from a given point is constant. The distance between any of the points and the centre is called the radius.
A circle is a simple closed curve which divides the plane into two regions: an interior and an exterior. In everyday use, the term "circle" may be used interchangeably to refer to either the boundary of the figure, or to the whole figure including its interior; in strict technical usage, the circle is the former and the latter is called a disk.
A circle may also be defined as a special ellipse in which the two foci are coincident and the eccentricity is 0, or the two-dimensional shape enclosing the most area per unit perimeter squared, using calculus of variations.
"Circle" has many definitions.
a closed plane curve consisting of all points at a given distance from a point within it called the center. Equation: x 2+ y 2= r 2.
2.
the portion of a plane bounded by such a curve.
3.
any circular or ringlike object, formation, or arrangement:
a circle of dancers.
4.
a ring, circlet, or crown.
5.
the ring of a circus.
6.
a section of seats in a theater:
dress circle.
7.
the area within which something acts, exerts influence, etc.; realm; sphere:
Notice "sphere" is one of them.

That part of the definition that includes sphere is for a cliche. Circle of influence is a saying. It added realm and sphere to the end of it because you can change the saying around a bit by swapping out those words.
A sphere is NOT a circle.
A sphere (from Greek σφαῖρα — sphaira, "globe, ball") is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space that is the surface of a completely round ball, (viz., analogous to a circular object in two dimensions).

Like I said, there are many definitions. I think I have proven that.

There is only one definition that matters. The Euclidean Geometry one. The bible didn't say "sphere"; it said "circle".

You claimed a sphere is not a circle and when you look at the Greek translation it can be considered a circle and even says "Globe".

Also, you said a dome wasn't a accurate description though the definition of "dome" says: "Domes includes mortuary, celestial, and governmental traditions that have likewise developed over time."
Hence the word "Celestial"
And the context in which pillars is used could easily be symbolic.
