    The Earth is more smooth and spherical than a billiard ball of the same size. The reason we can detect mountains is that we are so tiny in relation to the overall size of the Earth. As an aside, the tallest point on Mt. Everest is some junk leftover by mountaineers.

    Mountains are not proof that the Earth is flat or spherical.

    Mountains could be raised by tectonics or volcanos above a flat Earth as well.

    Continental drift and plate tectonics are why mountains exist. Earth is,NOT flat. Earth is very slightly oblate spheroid.

    The Earth is not flat. There are mountains because of tectonic plate movement.

    The earth is a sphere.

    Then the Lord spoke out of the storm. He said:

    “Who is this that obscures my plans

    with words without knowledge?

    Brace yourself like a man;

    I will question you,

    and you shall answer me.

    “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?

    Tell me, if you understand.

    Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!

    Who stretched a measuring line across it?

    On what were its footings set,

    or who laid its cornerstone—

    while the morning stars sang together

    and all the angels a shouted for joy?

    “Who shut up the sea behind doors

    when it burst forth from the womb,

    when I made the clouds its garment

    and wrapped it in thick darkness,

    when I fixed limits for it

    and set its doors and bars in place,

    when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;

    here is where your proud waves halt’?

    "Have you ever given orders to the morning,

    or shown the dawn its place,

    that it might take the earth by the edges

    and shake the wicked out of it?

    The earth takes shape like clay under a seal;

    its features stand out like those of a garment.

    The wicked are denied their light,

    and their upraised arm is broken.

    “Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea

    or walked in the recesses of the deep?

    Have the gates of death been shown to you?

    Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?

    Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?

    Tell me, if you know all this.

    “What is the way to the abode of light?

    And where does darkness reside?

    Can you take them to their places?

    Do you know the paths to their dwellings?

    Surely you know, for you were already born!

    You have lived so many years!"

    The Life Force that created the galaxies also made the land, and He is the one who formed the mountains. Therefore fear Him, for this is the very beginning of knowledge.
