Ferdinand Magellan

This quote a été ajouté par cut_silk19
The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church.

Touchy, aren't we?

If it were just a typing test, then there would not be so many inane quotes. There is a comment section for a reason.

Shut it teil0 - it's a typing test not a site on quote accuracy.

This quote is purely fictional, and a very bad fiction at that.

None but the uneducated in the middle ages believed the earth was flat. The entire flat earth narrative is a 20th century myth. The scientists in Columbus' day opposed his expedition because they believed the earth was too big around to sail all the way to India. Columbus argued it was much smaller. It turns out Columbus was wrong.

Furthermore, Magellan's first expedition was in 1512, 20 years after Columbus first sailed.
