Okay i'll bite, what would be the motive behind telling people the Earth is round then? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19696571
Heres a philosophy I thought of over the weekend. Everything seems to be set up to make us feel insignificant.
Yes, God once existed but he parted the seas thousands of years ago and he hasnt been seen since
Earth is just one of billions of planets in a ever expanding universe
You just have one life, where were you before in the thousands of years in human history? Dont know, science has no clues on what happens when you die, they dont even try and find out. Billions of people have lived and died before you.
Youre one of billions of people on earth today.
Theres always people who are smarter than you and way richer. Most likely youll be one of billions who work until old age.
What happens after that? Who knows....
We made it to the moon, (maybe) but its still a long ways off to another fresh planet, Hundreds of light years away...and youll probaly be dead by then.
