Yes, actually there are absolutes, like right now the Earth is absolutely the concept defined of and as spherical and it always will be that way until it is destroyed or collides with another object etc.

I thought the Earth was more like an ellipsoid than a 'true' sphere?

S-layers Main article: S-layer An S-layer is a cell surface protein layer found in many different bacteria and in some archaea where it serves as the cell wall. All S-layers are made up of a two-dimensional array of proteins and have a crystalline appearance, the symmetry of which differs between species. The exact function of S-layers is unknown, but it has been suggested that they act as a partial permeability barrier for large substrates. For example, an S-layer could conceivably keep extracellular proteins near the cell membrane by preventing their diffusion away from the cell. In some pathogenic species, an S-layer may help to facilitate survival within the host by conferring protection against host defence mechanisms.
