Earth: Only One Ancient Depiction Got it Right

Ancient cultures depicted the Earth variously as resting on the back of elephants, a boar’s nose, Atlas’ shoulders, etc.  Photos from outer space confirm only one ancient depiction:

“He suspends the Earth over nothing.” — Job 26:7

The Bible, of course.

From Flammarion’s “History of the Heavens”
