No, Earth isn't flat. 

       

                  There are so many religious assumptions where Earth is described as flat and before the revolution of science and space most of the people trusted on that.

Actually the Earth is an Oblate Sphere or almost round. 

This is a huge globe in comparison of human size and geometry says two nearest point of a globe's surface make a straight line, those made an illusion that Earth is flat.

People who believe in a flat Earth essentially reject all the development of science that has been achieved for centuries.

They consider Neil Armstrong's landing on the Moon hoax! They think satellites actually never existed! They believe that the Sun is only 4,000 kilometers away!

The reason?

VICE.com's writing in 2014 revealed, those who believe that the Earth flat believes that the sun is always in Tropic Cancer and Capricorn, which means the distance is less than 5,000 kilometers from Earth.

They also believe that the Earth is so special that although many celestial bodies are round, the Earth is flat like a disc.

Flat Earth evidence according to people who believe it can be known when flying by plane.

Passengers are always told that airplanes are at a fixed height after being stable in the air. According to flat Earth believers, if the Earth is round, the flying height should never remain.

Professor of astrophysics and Head of the National Institute of Aviation and Space (LAPAN) Thomas Djamaluddin said that the Earth's view was flatter. "That's pseudoscience," he said. "Lay people believe it because it is as if the view is scientific even though in fact there is no basis at all," he added when contacted by Kompas.com, Monday (07/11/2016). This is some evidence that the Earth is round, not flat. People who believe in flat Earth believe that the South Pole is a wall that cannot be penetrated. "In fact, there have been flights that crossed the South Pole, from South Africa to New Zealand. If the South Pole wall is impenetrable, there cannot be a flight," he explained. Flight past the South Pole is now not in demand because of technical reasons related to cold temperatures. The view that satellites are mere lies is also less grounded. In fact, human communication is currently satellite based. Similarly, the belief that the Sun is 4,000 kilometers from Earth. "The temperature of the Sun reaches 6,000 degrees Celsius. If the distance of the Sun is that close, then we will be tormented and burned by radiation and heat," said Thomas. The altitude of flying aircraft that remains can be explained. The altitude of flight of a plane is measured relative to the surface of the Earth. The large size of the Earth makes the curvature of the Earth not so felt. "If we become pilots, we will be able to prove it," said Thomas. "If the Earth is flat, then from above we can look at any area including the south pole. In fact, our views remain limited."

Twilight Proves it Proof that round Earth can be done in a simple way. Many people hunt for dusk scenery during holidays. The view of dusk can be evidence that the Earth is round. When looking at dusk, humans will see an imaginary line that limits view. The sun will sink in the line called the horizon. If the Earth is flat, the lines that seem to bring together the sky and the surface of the Earth will not exist. If there is a ship sailing in the ocean, people will not see the ship disappear slowly and by part when moving away if the Earth is flat. "If the ship approaches, we will watch the smoke first, then the whole ship, but all of them will go straight," said Thomas. Still want to believe the Earth is flat

Technically the Earth is an oblate spheroid but people saying the Earth is "round" is an accurate approximation. Since the Earth spins the poles become flattened and Earth bulges at the equator.

No planet can ever be flat. Gravity's tendency pulls everything toward a common center of the gravity's source. Even if the Earth started out flat, which it didn't, over time gravity would cause Earth to become more like a sphere.
