There seems to be more and more flat earthers around the globe.

This video explains some of the science around the issue. Conclusion: from a human perspective, probably not flat, but from a muon perspective...possibly?

I think you mean spherical, not round. Flat and round are technically the same thing in this context.

Like with the paranormal and UFOlogy I find it fun to play along with.

But the fact that the Earth is round is obvious to most folks in all four corners of the Earth!

If the Earth was really flat then the laws of physics applied would probably kill us all.

If the Earth was flat, cats would've pushed everything off the edge by now.
