The Earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
Now the Earth is round
Before we thought the earth was flat and if you went to far you’d fall off. People who thought the earth to be round were ridiculed. Now we know the earth is round.
This ridicule is alluded to in the next line about everybody…laughing at the ones who knew the shape.
