This website exposes the flat earth deception and proves that the earth is globe shaped.

Nathan says that 2 Samuel 11:11 in Matthew’s Bible says flat earth.
Matthew’s Bible reads, “And Vrias sayd vnto Dauid: the arck and Israel & Iuda dwell in pauilions: & my Lord Ioab and the seruauntes of my Lorde lye in tentes vpon the flat earthe: and shulde I then go into myne house, to eate and to dryncke & to lye wyth my wyfe? By thy lyfe and as sure as thy soule lyueth, I wyll not do that thyng.”
The King James reads, “And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.”
Is the context of the verses about defining the shape of the earth? No! It’s simply proclaiming that they encamped in tents in open fields. The fact that it had to clarify that the area was flat, tells you that all of the land is not flat.
Nathan is clearly taking 2 Samuel 11:11 out of its proper context.
Nathan is perverting Messiah’s words, taking passages out of context.
Read this study to see that the 240 Bible verses that he cites to say that the Bible says Flat Earth, are taken out of context, some of them to a ridiculous level.
Nathan says that the horizon always rises to eye level.
This is a flat earth fallacy! Here’s a video from a professional airline pilot who shows the sunset at 45,000 ft confirms that the Horizon drops.
You can see that the downward angle is 3.7 degrees. If the Theodolite app was pointing up, so that it’s at 0 degrees tilt, then the cross hairs would be pointing to the sky above the horizon, at the red horizontal line. So the horizon does not rise up to meet our eye!
Nathan says that water always seeks to find level.
This is another favorite saying of flat earthers, which is untrue.
Water seeks to move to lower elevations, not to be level. This is why rivers flow north, east, west and south; as the water move down in elevation.
The lowest level is a lake, or the sea, or the ocean; but again, water is seeking to move to a lower elevation, not to ‘be level’.
This video shows one ship that is moored near the horizon line, and the distant ship behind it which is well below the horizon; proving the curvature of the earth.
Water clearly curves, as ships disappear bottom first, which means that it’s being hidden by the curvature of the earth.
Nathan points to the law of perspective, pointing to things growing smaller as they move away.
But the sun and moon don’t do that. They stay the same size all the way across the sky, and then drop down below the horizon. If the earth were flat they would appear to decrease in size, until they disappear as a small ball, above the horizon.
On the flat earth, objects that are moving away would simply grow smaller and disappear at the vanishing point, but they would always stay above the horizon.
But every day we see the Sun rise up from under the horizon, and set down below the horizon.
