# Flat Earth And Theorema Egregium

You don't need physics to show that the earth is round. This theor
em is literally what every math undergrad learns. It says that the
Gaussian curvature of a surface is intrinsic.

You can determine the Gaussian curvature of the earth without leav
ing the surface. And you know what? The value is not 0. In other w
ords, it can't be flat.
Despite of that, I think being a flat earther is a good thing thou
gh. Since ANYTHING GOES!
If we modify the theory, we could apply it to our flat SOLAR SYSTE
M and flat GALAXY. It might provide better explanations than the c
urrent theory. I just don't believe in flat EARTH.
