If everything in the universe was created by the laws of physics, then everything that has happened and everything that will happen is set in stone.We still cannot rule out the possibility of there being a God in some form because it all had to start somehow.
And don't even try "the four corners of the earth." The word translated “corners,” as in the phrase just mentioned, is the Hebrew word, KANAPH. Kanaph is translated in a variety of ways. However, it generally means extremity, not corners.
Now I will show you how the Bible long before anyone knew pointed out earths true position in the universe...
Job 26:7 "He it is Who spreads out the northern skies over emptiness and hangs the earth upon or over nothing."
How could Job, more than 3000 years ago, possibly have known that God “hangs the earth upon nothing."
I know! It was a good guess.
PS if their is life out there it would have no effect on the Bible one way or the other as it makes no mention of it at all.

Already covered the corners thing.
No place does any of the 66 (more if you are Catholic!) books of the Bible, does it say or even imply the earth is flat.
And now for the unbelievers!

The existence of the universe is not proof of the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or any other imaginary god you'd like to name, not even the no-name god Abraham invented.
And the authors plagiarizing the story of Gilgamesh and calling it "Noah" were making up a myth when they said the whole world was covered in water, since that has never happened, ever.
1) The bible says the whole earth was covered, which meant Everest drowned.
2) Almost every society experiences big floods. That doesn't mean Everest drowned or that they occurred comtemporaneously with other mythical flood.
Oops, I wasn't supposed to point out that flaw in your logic, was I?
Since the Bible can't be taken literally, it can't be taken on faith, and since Mary's Hymen must be taken on faith, the divinity of Jesus is unverifiable and not a credible theory of how the girl got knocked up, since there are so many easier ways to get a broad pregnant. So, Christianity has no foundation if the Bible is false in any way.
The Bible contains proven falsehoods.
Joshua ben Nun did not observe the sun halted in it's motion ever, not once in his entire life, and certainly not for a full "day".
The one person out of the eight that says he didn't see Noah's flood is the correct one.
