Why is the world round
It is not ROUND, it is an OBLATE SPHEROID get it right!
Because all round things spin........

Because any object of a certain size in space has excessive gravity, which causes it to pull within itself into a round shape. The same would happen with any object that was the Earth's size that had a steady orbit.
Gravity causes material to "fall" towards the center, creating an oval shape.
But it's not. I just saw a thing on discovery channel and it explains why it wasn't round.
