The whole “earth is round not flat” thing as a major scientific discovery is a very Western-centric thing
Arab and Asian empires had mathematically proven the earth was round way before white people
Arab mathematicians had calculated the circumference of the Earth hundreds of years before Columbus sailed. Even the ancient Greeks knew the world was round and provided their own estimates for size. The real reason nobody except Spain would give Columbus money to go to Asia was because the math had been done and everybody knew the journey from Europe to Asia by sailing west was ridiculously longer than Columbus was claiming. Columbus wasn’t just bad at geography, he also flunked math.
