The world may not be flat, but the very ground or 'earth' that everyone stands on is. The Romans may have thought that, even if a diet of grain was satisfactory, but many others thought that too. It was a way for them to preserve their harvest, make beer, and meals. I can't speak for Europeans, but the sun is indeed the center of our solar system. Maybe they didn't know the difference between the two? Being our solar systems, the galaxy, and the universe. Americans have been debating the rights of African ancestry or slaves since America was created. So they were in the equation since or long before the American constitution was created. Every man is created equal, etc. etc. On earth as it is in heaven. Which is how its stated in the bible. Although many people who claim to be religious don't follow that.
