The Earth was definitely not flat in the Middle Ages

One of my most recent posts concerned the myth that people in the Middle Ages believed the world to be flat. Tim O’Neill, friend of the Renaissance Mathematicus, guest poster and frequent commentator, also added interesting comments to that post. Now he has gone one better and written an extensive blog post of his own on the subject on his History for Atheists website, The New Atheists Bad History Guide 1: The Medieval Flat Earth. Much more wide ranging and informative than my own brief rant it is definitely worth reading, so get on over there and do just that.
