God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof. For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
(Job 28:23-25) KJV
If you want to believe that earth is flat no one’s going to stop you. However nothing in the Bible, either in the meaning of words or in the context of passages, requires you to believe that earth is flat and has an edge.
Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
(Proverbs 17:24) KJV
The proverb above has a familiar ring to it. How about this for comparison?
All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was… what he was doing.
– Master Yoda
This isn’t talking about the edge of a flat earth, it’s talking about someone who lets his or her mind wander off into… the Star Trek universe of SciPop.
Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
(Daniel 2:35) KJV
When we consider the similarities between the 3rd day and the Millennial Kingdom we should realize that, if flat earth is Biblical, then maps of the supposed flat earth should have Jerusalem at the center. They don’t.
While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
(Proverbs 8:26) KJV
We have closed the loop on the idea that the topography of the dry land on the 3rd day was a mountain that filled the whole earth. The summit: Eden. We are also beginning to deduce earth’s original hydrological cycle.
And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
(Genesis 2:10-14) KJV
The Logic of Eden
IF a river from Eden watered the whole surface of the earth,
AND water flows downhill,
THEN Eden was the highest point on the surface of the earth.
