This Flat Earth Deception post features another nonsensical flat earth meme about Daniel 4:10 proclaimed giant trees.
Flat earthers proclaim that structures like Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, are actually ancient trees on the flat earth.
They base this on verses like Daniel 4:10 “Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great.”
This is just another example of them taking a verse completely out of context to try to prove their agenda. This passage is not talking about the design of the earth or the place that is the center.
The ‘tree in the midst of the earth‘ that Daniel was describing was king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, who reigned over the kingdoms of the earth.
Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible
I saw – a tree – This vision Nebuchadnezzar says made him afraid. What a mercy it is that God has hidden futurity from us! Were he to show every man the lot that is before him, the misery of the human race would be complete.
Great men and princes are often represented, in the language of the prophets, under the similitude of trees; see Ezekiel 17:5, Ezekiel 17:6; 31:3, etc.; Jeremiah 22:15; Psalm 1:3; 37:35.
Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible:
A tree: those that write of the language of the East tell us that a tree denote some excellent man. Thus the prophet Ezekiel, Ezekiel 31 throughout, describes the king of Assyria, and Pharaoh king of Egypt, in their flourish, height, and great fall, comparing them to huge cedars.
