As we know the bible says "4 corners of the world".

What amazes me more than the "Flat Earthers" is that people actually pay them any attention at all. Some people actually get defensive as if their current knowledge of the Earth being round is being challenged.
Well it is, what proof have you got?
This is most interesting.
I am thinking to start a croud fund campaigne to raise enough money to buy a large jet, employ a group of researchers and have the jet fly to and over the ice wall that is the edge and then desend to take a photo of the underside of our wonderful flat Earth so as to show the world how NASA have been fooling us with their promotion of this crazy idea that the Earth is an imperfect globe.
I think a target of fifty million dollars is needed to get the job done.
However the current flat Earth model is flawed as it suggests the Earth is not only flat but round and of course that view is not in keeping with the bible view of there being four corners.
And, as we all know, the Bible was originally written in English.
Oh, wait, it wasn't?
Exactly, it must be oblong or square, i doubt square.
Oh have we got a *** here, do you think the translators made up 4 corners of the world because they didn't understand balloon?
No, I think you're using a constricted definition subordinate to your politics.
Still, though: What translators?
You have invoked them, so what translators are you on about?
Could be anyone.
Then what's with the stupid question?
Seriously: When you don't have a clue what you're on about, think again before attempting to prove the point.
One wonders why they did not conclude the Earth was the shape of an inflated goats stomach.
Proof of what?
Oblong and square are English translations from camp fire talk that actually meant a non perfect sphere.
Yep, goat-herders sitting around a camel-dung campfire agreed that the Earth was flat. We have made absolutely no progress beyond that.
That's a fairly common excuse used by Bible inerrantists. The translators misunderstood "six days", etc.
What question? The only question I asked was did the translators(tanach/bible) replace the 4 corners of the earth with balloon?
That the earth isn't flat?
There is nothing misunderstood. The English translations of the bible can be compared to the tanakh(english version, unless you can understand Hebrew)! The tanakh that Jews who cannot read Hebrew use.
The bible gets the 4 corners of the earth/6 days right, we would know otherwise.
The bible has to be believed literally by every Christian and Jew, otherwise their foundation for their faith will crumble.
Not really. Great is the power of ignore. This is what allows religious people to rail against technology by posting on Facebook.
You mean you can take it none literally? I've heard about those folks...
