Please Explain your answer in a non traditional reason why you believe what you believe. I guess this question can fall into so many categories but I’ll just leave it at research.

Good morning,

So much written on the topic as a news report said of those that are in a small percentage wondering if the earth is flat or not. As not a scientist, thought I would provide peer reviewed sources that explain reasoning:

1. Popular Science Magazine offers 10 easy ways to show earth is round

https://www.popsci.com/10-ways-you-can-prove-earth-is-round#page-6

2. While not perfectly round, more of a sphere

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/earth-is-not-round/

I hope that this information was found useful as please inform me of any additional questions/concerns you have. Also if you could take a second to rate my assistance so that I know my help was found useful today.

Take care,

Librarian Michael

But personally though .. what do you think ?

I believe that from everything I have read from scientific research and pictures from space provided by NASA that our earth is round. Just too much scientific evidence to not be true. As a librarian, I always refer patrons coming to the reference desk information from experts in their field. Those that study space and our planet confirm that the planet is round and not flat.

I hope that this information was found useful as please inform me of any additional questions/concerns you have. Also if you could take a second to rate my assistance so that I know my help was found useful today.

Take care,
