Like the pyramids of Giza and Stonehenge  Before addressing this point, I'd like to address the post about Kansas being flat. Land on Earth is not all at the same height. That's why it's not a perfect sphere. Look at a basketball, the height of the ball is equal at any two points. But, with Earth, certain land formations are taller than others. So imagine a basketball, but where certain parts are higher than others. That's why Kansas is flat, and that's why Everest is miles higher than the ground you're standing on.  Now, as far as ancient peoples, they did make the pyramids and Stonehenge. But, that doesn't make them experts in astronomy. The Egyptians believed that the Universe was rectangular, not flat. They also thought that Egypt was at the center of all existence. So, should we believe them?
