Not at all. The deviation from sphericity due to roughness is about 0.1%, and that due to eccentricity about 0.3%. So quit whinging about Bede's estimation of the sphericity of the earth, which is still a good approximation for most purposes today, and was certainly excellent when no one knew about the equatorial bulge.
