In your post, Trying Harder..uh!, you state that, "the Bible does not fly to see how rounded the earth is. It sees it all flat. Bible fans see it all flat too".

You are probably basing this statement on Muhammad's view of the earth when he stated, Aya: 18:86. Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it set in a spring of murky water:

Now here is a scripture from the Bible; Isaiah 40:22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth. The book of Isaiah was written about 700 BC while Muhammad made his scientific observation some time after 600 AD, that's 1300 years difference. So, according to the Bible the earth is round while according to the Holy Qur'an the sun set in a spring of murky water thus indicating that the earth must have been flat with murky water on it. While your posts are rather entertaining, they offer little truth or facts, but perhaps that's why you write.
