    basically it says 'spread out' in the Quran and early commentators would not have known the spherical shape of the world thus they would include the word 'flat' and indeed when the earth is of such great expanse it does seem flat to the eye, however the deeper meaning is 'spread out in a geoid shape'
    So the quran just says the earth is spread out. Thank u!

      So Allah said: وَإِلَى الْأَرْضِ كَيْفَ سُطِحَتْ ﴿٢٠﴾

      meaning (Do they not look) "at the Earth how it is suTiHat"

      the Root word is: سَطَحَ saTaHa



      It means to spread out in this context.

        So sutihAt literally means spread out right?

          Right. For example if I were to take chocolate with a spoon and spread it out on an apple. Then I tell you to look at the chocolate how it is spread out. Just because the chocolate is spread out it does not mean that the apple is flat and doesn't have another shape.

            The false conclusion is example of deductive fallacy due to invalid reasoning.

            The invalid reasoning is of the form:

            Earth is spread out.
            Flat objects are spread out.
            Therefore, Earth is flat.

            Elementary logical fallacy (case #1):
