Do you think finding out the Earth is round is a great accomplishment?
I'm not trying to troll. I'm asking a question looking for answers. I asked it here because there is obviously more people here. It's in the wrong section on purpose.

Of course it is. Eratosthenes discovered that AND the circumference of the Earth using nothing but a stick.
Ancient Greeks FTW
Yeah, especially how the Greeks figured it out at least 2500 years ago, thats amazing. They were pretty accurate with the size as well.
Um...of course lol. Why wouldn't it have been a great accomplishment?
Even as a troll question, failure to troll in the proper area is something every troll should hate.
with the death of the Great Predators, we had the leisure to pursue our dreams and studies.
Of course it is.
This is not a religious topic my good man. People knew the Earth was a sphere long before any religious group did and some of them were executed for it.
It's a pretty significant one. I'm not sure how "great" it is - but it led to the idea that one could travel toward the West in order to reach the East, and because of *that* the Americas were discovered.
No. I did it at the age of 3 with an earth globe
Not until the world is at peace and spirituality without fail, the whole human world.
