Have you ever looked up words like "carpet" or "bed" in a dictionary?
You do realize these are not the same words in which they were originally written and are English? You do realize EVERY definition of EVERY word in EVERY language is used by DEFINITION. While you're busy looking up these words check on "definition" too. Look up the words in the definition of "definition". Look those up too until you understand my damn point.
The topic is about “flat earth”, where scriptures like the Bible and the Qur’an, give picture of flat earth, and not sphere-like planet (oblate spheroid).
Since I was replying to paarsurrey, who believed in the Qur’an, so I gave him verse (20:53) with different translations, which say the Earth was spread out like a “carpet” or “bed”, which is repeated a number of times.
The bed and carpet are merely similes, but it does draw of images of the Earth being “flat” not with roundness of a sphere.
Neither bed, nor carpet, are shaped like a sphere, cladking.
I was also pointing out that the word “round” could apply to any shape with curves that necessarily mean “sphere”, for instances cone, cylinder/disk, circle, oval, arc, rectangle with 4 rounded corners, or box with 8 rounded corners.
I don’t deny a sphere is round, but so is the disk or cylinder, which what some ancient cultures believed the shape of the Earth, like the Egyptians, Babylonians, Israelites, Greeks (before Aristotle), and apparently Arabs in Muhammad’s time.
Do you understand my points as to why I quoted from the Qur’an?
Paarsurrey believed in the Qur’an, so I used the Qur’an to demonstrate Muhammad believed in flat earth, like that of disk in shape, not a sphere.
So what’s your damn problem?
