Dear Mikalai

» ... In Belarus, we often see this, and it usually ends that we have to prove that the globe is round not flat.

Read the books of Terry Prattchets "Discworld" series and you will discover that the world is a flat disc resting on four elephants which are standing on a very big tortoise :cool:.
I recommend especially the titles
- The Science of Discworld (1999)
- The Science of Discworld II: The Globe (2002)
- The Science of Discworld III: Darwin's Watch (2005)
- The Science of Discworld IV: Judgement Day (2013)
They are full of wisdom and may furnish you to be reluctant in fighting for some ones alleged "truth" in science, may it be the own "truth" or the truth of others.

Regards,

Detlew

We should not speak so that it is possible
for the audience to understand us,
but so that it is impossible
for them to misunderstand us.    Quintilian
