  2. if the Earth was flat , then other celestial bodies would be also
    ... the "formation" process is universal

    so if they are all flat , why do they all appear round

    are we so special that they all always face us?

  4. First of all, The earth isn't flat. Scientific studies show that the earth is in fact round. But if we were saying "Oh if the earth is flat, The sun would not be able to exert gravity on Earth unless it was a flat surface." would be your best bet.
