Is it scientifically plausible for the Earth to not be spherical, or is a round earth much more likely?

People who think the earth is flat, please give me your proof. Save the trolls

It isn’t spherical. It’s a spheroid. Closer to a pear than a marble in shape. Not quite THAT extreme though.

I'd say closer to a marble, but yes.
Oblate spheroid.
Couldn't remember the name.

It is not even plausible for earth to be anything other than a more-or-less spherical shape.

We know this because of:
Math
Astronomy
Geographic Navigation
And HAVING SEEN THE EARTH FROM ORBIT.

But it isn't.

Geographic Navigation is not fake news.

If you have someone circumnavigate the globe at the equator, and someone else do so at 66° latitude, north or south, the second person will have traveled less in terms of distance.

That's because:
It's not flat.

That's exactly what National Geographic wants you to think!

Glad you finally understand. Now just don't get too close to the "horizon" you don't want to fall off.

I’ll go with......it’s flat and kind of concave lol. Just to give a flat earther something to think about lol.

Earth = Round

People were figuring this out 6,000 years ago. Honestly, people need to keep up. Lol

Technically it's not flat but oval like kinda

It would be possible if we had never been into space and proved it was not flat. Also, if we didn't have air travel nor sea travel that can literally go around the planet. So no, it's not possible today.

Flat earthers don’t believe we’ve been to space

So they don't believe we have been to the moon either? Even though they left a piece of reflective material and can shoot a powerful laser there and see it reflect back?

Yep. All fake. Space is fake too. I don’t remember exactly what it is that we’re seeing, but yup. All fake. NASA is evil. Gabby giffords didn’t get shot. George hw Bush is a war criminal. These are from the “biblical” flat earthers, not the flat earth society. I don’t know if they think there’s space or not

Don’t forget the part where the entire Cold War was faked because USA and USSR (plus pretty much every other govt and countless private companies) conspired to fake everything from photos taken in space to GPS.

How would it make sense that every other planet, which you can see through an inexpensive telescope, is round except us. Or are they all flat and perfectly angled at us to seem a sphere?

It’s obviously an optical illusion built into the lens.
