Does the Bible teach a Flat Earth and Geocentrism?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavourite answer
I hate to say it as an atheist but no, the flat earth theories was prevalent in western culture not in the areas mentioned in the bible. In fact the Greeks and Romans knew the earth was round as did the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians according to the latest evidence.
these cultures were mathematically advanced unlike the post roman cultures of Europe they worked it out for themselves says a lot for advanced western culture doesn't it ?

Some people will say "The bible supports flat earth because it mentions 'four corners'", but they're just grabbing at straws and have nothing better to do.
Type in "four corners of the globe" into google. Do you think all of those people believe that the earth is flat?

Well sorta, if you want to be extremely literal about it. Someone or another (the Devil?) took Job to a high mountain where he could see the entire world.
Joshua made the sun stand still.
