I just posted the following comment below this video. I wonder if it will be deleted.
The bible describes a flat earth. The earth started its existence "without form, and void." Genesis 1:2. God then gave the earth form, and that form was flat. We know that because the waters God created had to have been flat, just as they are today. Indeed, "God moved upon the face of the waters." Genesis 1:2. As the face on a clock is flat, so also is the face of the water on the earth flat. It is a fact that the surface of all water at rest is flat and level.
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:1-2)
In common parlance, the height of the surface of a body of water is called the water "level," because it is understood that the surface of all water at rest is flat and level. The oceans cover 71% of the earth’s surface. It is impossible for the earth to be a sphere when 71% of its surface is covered by water, which necessarily must be flat and level. The very existence of the oceans proves that the earth must necessarily be flat.
We know that there was water covering the earth upon its creation because God states that "darkness was upon the face of the deep." God describes his movement over the face of the waters, and since the surface of all water at rest is flat and level, the earth must have been flat from the beginning.
In Genesis 1:2 God moved upon the face of the necessarily flat water. There is simply no other way to interpret that passage but to mean that the earth created by God began as flat water. Read carefully how God describes the water in Genesis 1:2 before moving upon the face of it. God stated that "the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep." (Genesis 1:2) Notice that there was darkness upon the face of the deep. Once again we have the face of the water (the surface of which can be nothing but flat) described as having a face (i.e., it was and is flat).
A face is the front side of an object or a person’s head. We often talk of the face of a coin, clock, or building. The word face is never used to describe a sphere. A sphere is a round ball and thus cannot have a front; it, therefore, cannot have a face. In conclusion, God did not move upon spherical waters, since a sphere does not have a face, water cannot form a "deep" on the side of a sphere, and water is always flat. God moved upon the face of flat waters.
The Math is Fun website is a mathematics website for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. It is based upon the New York State Education Curriculum. It is reviewed for accuracy by "Les Bill Gates, Graduate of Oxford University with an Honours degree in Mathematics, and a post-graduate Certificate in Education," and "David Sevilla, Doctorate in Mathematics." The Math is Fun website states that a face could be "any of the individual flat surfaces of a solid object." Thus, because a sphere has no flat surface, a sphere cannot have a face. This is confirmed by the Math is Fun website, which states, in pertinent part, that a sphere has "one surface (not a ‘face’ as it isn’t flat)."
