If there is I have never heard of it before. What exactly is your fear? That the earth is really flat or that you will fall off a round earth? Impossible thing to happen. Gravity will always keep you in place. Maybe you can explain more about your fear.

Or is it this huge rock (earth) that is suspended in space and keeps rolling around? We wonder if it will quit rolling around?

This is the problem with too much and too little knowledge. I figure we'll be long gone before the sun gives out. Don't worry. Enjoy yourself.

sorry its been a little while since I posted this. my problem is when you go outside you see the sky curving almost down in all directions. however people have said that atmospheric refraction causes this problem. when I see that sometimes then I seen the roundness of earth and then see the sample size of the earth picture and then picture looking out and stuff going down. its like I am thinking of the whole picture instead the small sample size where we are at or probably most of are all the time.

it is such a huge and vast area. being on something that is round and not falling off. but the reason why stuff falls off round things onto the ground is because of the earths gravity. the whole thing about falling off something round....like an action figure on a basketball in a way should all but reassure that gravity yanks everything down. sometimes get the though of we are sideways going down and not out.
