Can someone tell me, please? I've heard conflicting evidence over this issue. Thank you.

Ignore what you have been told by ignorant people. The earth is a tetrahedron shape.

Any credible scientist will tell you the earth is "rounded". Or more exact, an oblate spheroid.

How you perceive things may not be how things really are. Everything that you see passes through the filter of your brain. How do you even know if anything even exists and it isn't something that your brain has made up. And anyways, there is no proof that nothing exists beyond what our eyes can see or our hands can feel despite of it being deeply ingrained into us.

While I am not a flat earther, it's very annoying when normies blatantly bash flat earthers. You can show me an example of phenomenon in physics which can be explained using the notion of earth being round but that by no means mean that there is no other possible shape in existence for which the phenomenon can occur. I could argue that physics in itself is not rigorous and it's foundations itself are laid on assumptions. Reasonable assumptions like energy in a closed system is conserved but assumptions nevertheless. Come to think of it, how would you even make it rigorous? What would be axioms?

A flattened sphere or oblate spheroid is what fits the description of our ideas of physics and it is how we perceive it (assuming every human on earth sees a sphere exactly how I see a sphere). Hence an oblate spheroid it is. It's like asking "do I exist?". I think I exist and so I do (because I think I do).

I see where you're coming from tbh, and I really feel the subject is open to interpretation as, beyond photos, there is no definitive proof

Camera should be able to capture every form of information that is out there and then we should be able to perceive it.

why is this even a question? it so obviously is round - nasa wouldn't lie to us. would they? i mean there's photographic evidence, and don't let anyone tell u otherwise :lol: :confused: :eek:

It could be an edited image/an image generated by successive governments to keep people in line and not question the very earth we live on.

honestly can't believe there are still flat-earthists out there. i thought it was a thing of the past - we should be progressing not regressing honestly - we believe there were dinosaurs billions of years ago which we didn't see ourselves, yet people have been TO SPACE and have seen that the earth IS ROUND and yet we still doubt. unbelievable :lol: :confused:
