I'm stunned to find this out! But I only have one question - how come the water doesn't just spill out? y:-?

That's an amazing picture!

It's about time that the "truth" came out.

Anyone know what the stats are on people falling off the edge? :mrgreen:
Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

In Job 38:14, it says :

"The earth takes shape like clay under a seal;
its features stand out like those of a garment. (NIV)"

Now, as far as I know, when you press clay with a seal, it has a flat base and features that stand out; the Earth doesn't look like this. :|

I read somewhere that it was referring to the axis of the Earth, but I can't remember why.

So what is this passage really saying? Was there some other was to make seals back then? And I understand that this book is poetic, but the Lord is the one saying this in the passage.
Doesn't that refer to the circumference?
I forget where, but in another passage the Earth is hinted at being round, it talks about a circle of darkness on the water to divide the day and night.
