    Go to your Strong's and keep two things in mind because I know you like to study words and their varied usage to get to the heart of a passage..

    1. When the scriptures were written the Hebrew language had no scientific terminology that compared to the advanced science of today.
    2. There are two Hebrew words and neither are conclusively 'sphere'..in fact from the quick search I did they are both used interchangeably.
    3. This I went to last night to disprove this and could not...Joshua spoke to the sun and the moon and commanded them to stand still...
    From the earliest passage on the sun there are MANY that depict the sun 'rising' 'setting' 'moving'.

    So in order to find a legitimate and conclusive argument I came out here..because I have not found one yet..and in order, IMHO, to do that I have to take a neutral position of possibility...that is the only way to be objective and I believe objectivity is the only way to clearly prove or disprove anything..
    Did Bible writers believe the Earth was flat?

    Thoughts?

    Jos 10:12-13

    Then spake H1696 Joshua H3091 to the LORD H3068 in the day H3117 when the LORD H3068 delivered up H5414 the Amorites H567 before H6440 the children H1121 of Israel, H3478 and he said H559 in the sight H5869 of Israel, H3478 Sun, H8121 stand thou still H1826 upon Gibeon; H1391 and thou, Moon, H3394 in the valley H6010 of Ajalon. H357

    And the sun H8121 stood still, H1826 and the moon H3394 stayed, H5975 until the people H1471 had avenged H5358 themselves upon their enemies. H341 Is not this H1931 written H3789 in the book H5612 of Jasher? H3477 So the sun H8121 stood still H5975 in the midst H2677 of heaven, H8064 and hasted H213 not to go down H935 about a whole H8549 day. H3117


    Hab 3:11

    The sun H8121 and moon H3394 stood still H5975 in their habitation: H2073 at the light H216 of thine arrows H2671 they went, H1980 and at the shining H5051 of thy glittering H1300 spear. H2595

    We can certainly interpret these from SCIENCE and conclude that what these actually MEAN is that the EARTH stood sill causing the sun and the moon to 'appear' to be still..but that's really NOT what it says...

    One very hands on clue for the Earth's surface being curved was when ships would show up on the horizon but only the mast was seen. They got a lot of that once they had telescopes.

    Isn't that part of the 'young earth' believers theology?

    Not necessarily, some people believe that dinosaurs coexisted with human beings until the flood.

    They are out there, but it wouldn't matter to the people you're talking to...they would say it is photo-shopped.
