The earth is not a pizza.
The earth is not round.
The earth is spherical.
Round earthers are as much poltroons as flat earthers :-P

Technically, it's a type of spheroid. It's like a squashed, bumpy ball. But only a handful of people really care.

There's a March for Science next week in my town. I want to stand on the sidelines with this on just to get a rise out of them.

Gotta march for something, I suppose.

Earth's terrain is definitely not flat, with mountain peaks 4 to 5 miles high, and ocean trenches, such as the Mariana Trench off the coast of Japan nearly 5 miles deep.

What kind of forces could have produced such upheaval?

Read it and learned that flat earthing, antisemitism, chemtrails and soon to be bankrupt strip mall shops come together as a package deal. Oh, and Jews are controlling the weather (take that you so-called climate scientists!).

I seem to have read that Flat Earthing is gaining inroads in Colorado. Have you seen anything like that?
