Flat Earth NOT. :red_cross: :!!:
Name one society who used to believe the earth was flat
showed the world as a flat disk floating in the ocean
Name a society that started talking about the possibility of the earth being round
Classical Greeks in 4th century BC
Eratosthenes (276 BC–194 BC) calculated the circumference of the Earth quite well
Aristotle proved the Earth was round in around 330 BC
Head Facts :silhouette:
Why did some members of society have to think about the size of the earth more than others?
Some were explores and needed to know how to get around and sometimes invade other countries
They wanted to to know calculate things to make tools like maps and clocks, while others just used something else
The greeks :silhouettes:
Astronomers - To know more about the earth
Sailors - needed maps that were correct sizes so they didn't get lost
Religion people - they worship some astronomical things
Heart Facts :<3:
What factors affect how easily you believe someone's opinion? (the checkbox ones are the one that Graeme doesn't believe and the non-checkboxed ones are the 'I DON'T BELIEVE' ones)
the amount of trust you have in the person
your beliefs in that topic or that thing
what you have learned
your way of thinking about things
your knowledge about the thing
Depends on what the fact is
It is proved that the earth is not flat and it is round. So I have a proof with me that earth is NOT flat
according to my knowledge, I know how to do addition and I know that 1+1 will be 2 from that.
your opinion using your knowledge and your way of thinking about things
Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10. 10 means you're skeptical (you don't believe anything you hear unless you see direct proof) and 1 means you'll believe just about anything without asking for proof.
about a 6. I can switch between the two based on my current emotion or what the person says.
Early Mesopotamian maps showed the world as a flat disk floating in the ocean. NOT!!!
the earth is ROUND!!!!! ROUND!!!!!!
so thats my argument
which is wrong very very wrong
The earth is flat - not true NOT TRUE!!!!! :red_cross: :red_cross: :red_cross: :red_cross: :red_cross:
