The bible doesn't say the Earth floats in space

The Daily Creationism:

At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant the Bible spoke of the earth's free fload in space: "He... hangs the earth upon nothing" (Job 26:7). Science didn't discover that the earth hangs upon nothing until 1650.

Nice try, but very dishonest of you. Some fragments that survived the burning of the Great Library showed scientists knew the Earth was spherical, a chap called Eratosthenes worked that out and its size in the 3rd century BC (the bible speaks of it as if it is flat), hypothesised that the planets were other worlds and that they all travelled around the Sun in space and that other stars were suns far far away.

Oh wait, I get it now, you christians burn the Great Library down and destroyed over a million works, the collective knowledge of all of civilisation up until that point. Including a three volume History of the World, works on steam power, works on how everything is made up of tiny atoms and so on. Your contempt for knowledge is well known. Burn everything else and claim the bible is factual.

Let's quote that passage of the bible in full:

He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

Stretched out the north over the empty place? Sorry buddy but the Earth isn't hollow, oh wait I forgot... The Earth is supposed to be flat isn't it?

Daily Creationist is wacko. They fail to see that the Cannon was created in 300 AD. It is a compilation of works by many different authors. Originally meant to be more of moral stories than actual doctrine.

Ahh the child of Science has spoken.

I wish to have been around before the great library was destroyed. Who knows where we'd be if it was still here!

Here's more proof towards the fact. Satan brings Jesus high up on a mountain and shows him all the kingdoms. This suggests that earth is flat because on a flat earth the higher you go the more you see such as a watch tower. but if it's a round you'll just see the horizons and the Bible makes clear In most aspects of describing but when it comes to claims there's no clarity. Which I personally think it odd
