Woudln't that make the earth just SLIGHTLY round? Not a sphere but not FLAT? It would be more of a long long long LONG oval?

Well, Unimportant and I discussed this.  We think its a possibility infact.  My first impression would be that the curvature would be off, but this is not doing any measurements or geometry.

I don't see why not.  I believe you mean to say "convex", by the way.

Err.. I mean what I said. :D But I did mean mountains not mounats in the topic name.

Oh, you mean flat but in the shape of an oval?

No, what a silly trick question. I mean.. round and in the shape of a very very wide oval  :P .

Oh.

I don't think RE supports that.  The Round Earth is a sphere because that's how it must be.  I believe it is due to gravity and other forces.

Slightly off topic, but what if the world were flat, but the moon was round?

FE does not claim that all celestial bodies are flat.

The moon's function is not unlike that of a spotlight.  Whether or not it must be round or flat is something I don't know.
