Re: Flat Earth? Hell Yes!
What Americans do and do not believe is irrelevant. The matter of the world being flat is a scientifical matter, not a matter of faith.
The majority of Americans may believe in creationism, but the belief that the Earth is flat is not so common, as you see, it has been proven wrong. People sailing around the world, treks across the polar regions, satellite imagery, even simple maths which I used in my previous post have all been used to prove it wrong.
It is possible I am mistaken about the metaphorical meanings, but do not forget that in Jesus' time, it was indeed believed that the world was flat, due to insufficent technology to prove otherwise.
The Bible is a book of religion, not of science. Do not quote it in a scientific debate.
