Creationists and Flat-Earthers

If you are a Creationist because Bible, you should also be a Flat-Earther, according to the citations in this article.

Creationists endure rough few weeks: Why the flat-earth crowd is in trouble

It’s remarkable enough that most of today’s creationists, wedded to biblical literalism and inerrancy, rarely mention such passages, particularly given the history of Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo. But then there are these, as well:

Daniel 4:10-11: [Nebuchadnezzar] “saw a tree of great height at the centre of the earth … reaching with its top to the sky and visible to the earth’s farthest bounds.”

Matthew 4:8: “Once again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world [cosmos] in their glory.”

Revelation 1:7: “Behold, he is coming with the clouds! Every eye shall see him …”

A single point cannot see to or be seen from everywhere on a globe at once. For these words to be literally true, the earth must be flat, end of story.

Of course, even the most devout, who claim to believe the Bible literally, can’t actually do so, because of the many, many contractions therein. (E.g. Biblical Contradictions.) The devout pick and choose which passages to believe in. And the passages they choose tell more about themselves, than about any appeasement toward God.
