Lets say hypothetically the earth were flat.

The FE camp says the sun rotates around the the surface of the disc.

The disc is stationary on it's axis but rising to fake gravity.......

Ok....cool but then why would the flat earth be a round disc?

Theres much less problematic ways of establishing the roundish shape of planets, which you should use when arguing, not some technicalities based on wrong assumptions. Even if there was a plausible explanation for every aspect of flat earth theory, it wouldnt make it any harder than fucking looking around to dismantle.

Well that's a silly question because it's predicated on an impossibility, if the elephants didn't walk around in a circle, eventually they'd become so weak they wouldn't be able to hold up the world.
Whatever shape the world was, it wouldn't remain for long once it collapsed into the void.

Besides, we can see how the disk spins by just looking at the night sky, the stars all circle the north star every 24 hour rotation.

Outdated, frankly laughable model of the world somewhat related.

Fair points.
I was more thinking a flat disc shape would result from a spinning object in space.

In my mind if a disc in space isnt spinning it' more likley to a random blob shape

I think flat earth stuff is pretty modern.

Just want to point out Flat Earthers DO NOT believe the disc is rising in any fashion. Gravity as far as Mass attracting Mass does not exist as there's not evidence for it. What you're doing is burning a strawman that was put out by "The Flat Earth Society" which is a disinformation group.

why a flat earth when you could have an earth topologically equivalent to a klien bottle? Because you're education only spans up to the time of euclid or you are boring.
