I guess this is no longer debatable as the earth is widely evidenced to be round and no other shape can disprove the fact. If the earth is flat, people on NASA must have been faking the whole world with all their findings.
This is not debatable as the people taking this side would surely lose considering that the people taking the side that the earth is round can possibly get a lot of evidences to support their argument.
I have found a quotation by a scientist, (though I don't know who he is) Isaac Asimov that has something to do with the earth being debated whether flat or spherical. He said (though I odn't know what he exactly meant),
"When people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the world was spherical, they were wrong. But if you think that thinking that the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking that the Earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together."
Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992)
Russian-born U.S. writer.
So anyone who goes for the thinking that the earth is flat embraces the principle of the so-called Relativity of Wrong... Check my source.
