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

The rise of biometry in this 20th century,
like that of geometry in the 3rd century before Christ,
seems to mark out one of the great ages or critical periods
in the advance of the human understanding.    R.A. Fisher
