# What would it be like if earth became flat? [closed]

Suppose suddenly earth become flat one day how would it affect us as we are used to the round earth.

Not a flat-earther just a doubt

• This question is rather broad, but the summary of answers will be: Every living thing dies horribly as the Earth collapses into a sphere again and completely melts in the process. Aug 3, 2016 at 15:32
• I think some constraints are going to be needed on this question to know what exactly you're asking. For example, a cornerstone of the flat Earth theory is that the Sun moves in a circle above Earth as opposed to the Earth orbiting the Sun. Is this part of your question? That alone would have all sorts of effects on everything and couldn't possibly happen with our current understanding of physics. On the topic of not lining up with physics, I don't think the science-based tag is really suitable for this question. Aug 3, 2016 at 15:34
• I agree with Cyrus, as this question is too broad, and could use some narrowing down. Or maybe split it into different questions regarding smaller topics. Aug 3, 2016 at 15:43
