Creationists assert that every single word of the bible is correct, including a model of the earth shown to the right. It is clearly nonsense. Granted it was the prevailing view of ignorant people at the time the bible was written.
However, even back then, the Greeks had figured out the earth was a sphere, and they even had an accurate estimate of its diameter. From space travel, telescopes and satellites we know for sure the earth is quite different from this ancient view.
Creationists are as fully aware as you are how wrong the ancient flat earth picture is, but that does not stop them from asserting it is the absolute truth. This delusion, this denial of reality, should be treated as a mental illness.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
