Because a round earth model has been directly observed, and it can't be anything else.

Round is an infinitely more efficient design to accommodate the rotations, orbits and movements of the planets and galaxies.

Can't imagine a "flat-disk" planet-design doing (or trying to do) what the round, circular design does.
