    How is the circle of the earth in Isaiah referring to a flat earth?

      Actually Moorad should draw a straight line. From Genesis 1 6-8, Exodus
    20, 4 and Isaiah 40, 22 it is manifestly clear that any reasonable exegesis
    will take this to be a flat earth. Thus all who take the bible literally
    will believ e in a flat earth. If they dont they have no grounds for a 6 day

        What is your scale? 1/10^9, certainly. 1/10^3, can you produce that
    slight a curvature?

    drawing that line curved?
