Thank you for your articles published in World Events and the Bible and also creating this community forum for further discussion.
With respect, if you "…don’t have much more to add.’ perhaps further objective research is necessary to reveal truth in the light of Scripture?
Could the god of this world be responsible for propagating deceptive humanistic ideologies which unwittingly prevent anyone thinking otherwise?
Apparently the earliest known globe model of the earth was produced by Stoic philosopher Crates of Mallus about c. 150 BC.
This reminds me of these words written in Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
I believe the Bible as the Word of the Lord, and seek to test everything in the light of Scripture. In questioning the so called 'globe theory’ I find it fascinating that you raise an intriguing question - '…the shape of the earth is not relevant to this discussion’.
Perhaps it is a fundamental truth, thus not to answer it affirmatively casts doubt on the whole of Scripture. Can the Word be trusted?
Job 38 is well worth reading: “Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.”
May the Spirit of truth be our guide, always.
Here are a couple of questions I posed to @brandonward1 via twitter on the 6/9/22 & 7/9/22, which remain unanswered.
Where do you source the CGI (computer-generated imagery) of a globe?
Are the images used on World Events and the Bible website real or Photoshopped?
