What it says on the tin.

The bible does not teach a flat earth. Those who think it does are misinterpreting some passages.

Aubrey, Thief of Justice,

You can't have 4 corners on a sphere... or ends...

Think about that for a minute.

Adrian, Herald of the Rich,

In the biblical language 4 corners means 4 directions. One passage has people living on the 4 corners. If it means literally the corners of a square, how does that work?

Aubrey, Thief of Justice,

A flat square has exactly 4 corners. If you live on a corner, you have to be really careful.

Well the bible talks about the NATIONS being from the four corners of the earth. So therefore contextually the four directions fits a lot better than LITERAL corners on a square. The bible says God hangs the CIRCLE of the earth on NOTHING. EVEN IF you thought it was flat, then it would be a circle, NOT a square. Some claim it is a circle inscribed inside of a square, ok, then the entire planet would be a SQUARE, then why doesn't Isaiah say that God hangs the SQUARE of the earth on nothing.

Those who do don't read the Bible... or read anything at all.
