I've never tested it. It's just someone's opinion that the Earth is round though.
But you can turn it all around on scientists with what you just said. I argued with my science teachers numerous times in high school over religion. They taught how organisms evolved and all that shit. Then said religion was just your belief there is no scientific evidence. So I started what you said above about the world being round. And then refused to study anything I could not be taught hands on. You can bet I got transfered out of that class but still got full credit.
