The Earth is round;

The International space station in low orbit as viewed from the space shuttle Atlantis.

And here;

Atlantis Docked to the International Space Station with Robotic Arm Deployed

This view of the space shuttle Atlantis while still docked with the International Space Station was taken by a crew member aboard the station on the final day of joint activities between the crew members for the STS-135 and Expedition 28 missions. The robotic arm on the shuttle appears to be saluting "good-bye" to the station. Earth's airglow is seen as a thin blue line above Earth's horizon. The Raffaello multi-purpose logistics module, full of items to be returned to Earth, is seen in the aft cargo bay, July 19. 2011. Flight Day 12.

Have I become your enemy, because I tell you the truth.

I'll be a fool for truth's sake. Truth is fallen in the street. I wont pass it by. I'll pick it up and embrace it regardless of the costs.

I don't know about you, but I've only ever viewed it from a distance.

That said, I suspect that because, according to the Bible, it is a light, the properties we perceive when viewing it are more like that of a rainbow than a physical object (as already discussed in a video earlier in the thread).


    THE KEYS OF HELL AND OF DEATH
      And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, "Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of Hell and of Death."

Graybeard Mountain, is 34 miles behind Fryingpan Mountain. This view would be impossible if the earth were a sphere of the size that is claimed. Graybeard Mountain would be 770 feet below the horizon and out of sight behind Fryingpan Mountain if the earth were a globe.

Pinnacle and Bald Knob would be even more impossible to view in this line of sight.

Haz how anyone in this day and age actually believes that flat earth idiocy and tripe is mind bending. It does reproach to the cause of Christ and gives the enemies of the LORD great occasion to blaspheme.

Here is a simple test anyone can do. Take a high power flashlight and look at it from a distance. Does it look round? Nah, didn't think so - just a bright light and shaped depending on the lens diffusing it and the intensity of the light. Now try to describe the physical shape of the flashlight? Nah, thought so, can't do it.

Now point the flashlight upwards where all you can see is the light and see if the source appears round to you from a distance. Nah, thought so. Now take a bright light and shine toward the flashlight and see if it appears as a circle. Nah, thought so again. Now take a fish eye lens and look at the flashlight that is pointing upward with the light shining upward and see if it appears as a round circle. Nah again. Now take a ball and shine a light from a distance at the ball. How does it appear? Now look at it through a fish eye lens. Now take a flat circle and shine a light on it. Yep, thought so. Trying to fit a square peg in a round hole can be quite the challenge.

Oh well, what will we banter about next :D Sometimes keeping it simple is the easiest way instead of explaining things in a thousand different ways.

Hey dude...I do not propose the earth is flat, nor any other planet for that matter. The whole entire point of that post is showing that if the earth were flat, we would be able to tell. It would not take rocket science - just some few simple test.
