In all seriousness, there are so many easy ways to prove that Earth is spherical, even though imperfect (the equator circumference is a teeny bit longer than the meridian). That Tesla car in space is the latest proof that Earth is spherical.

And it fell flat (pun very much intended) when you try to explain some Geographical / Geological processes.

If the Earth is flat, like completely flat:

- Where does Geothermal Energy come from?
- How do you explain the depths of the sea?
- Sailors falling off (as aformentioned)?
- Weathers and Climates determined by Equators?
- GPS?

The most annoying part is that it's completely impossible to win an argument against flat earthers.it looks so simple:
1-Present scientific facts 2- show them how their arguments are unproven, baseless conspiracy theories.
But Nope! It's all pointless. they are above logic and beyond reasoning. And every second you spend trying to show them the error of their ways, you're loosing valuable time that you could have used to read a book or listen to some pink floyd or drink f'ing bleach

I once saw this in an anti-anti-vax (not threadjacking, don't worry), and I just want to share this quote (slightly modified by me):

Arguing with them is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how intelligent your moves or your arguments are, the pigeon will simply kick the pieces around like it owns the chessboard.

I suppose that the same thing applies for most CTs (conspiracy theorists).

I don’t, and can’t, take Flat Earthers seriously at all.
The fact their group is growing just shows degeneracy is growing.

I honestly wouldn’t mind their group being banned. They do nothing except harm humanity’s collective conscious.

What evidence do you have that the amount flat earthers have increased, maybe it's because recently people have been given them more exposure then ever before, making people think there is an ever increasing amount of flat earthers; maybe everyone should stop giving flat earthers attention and the problem will disappear.

1984 was right about a dystopian future, just off in how it would look like.

Edit: Brave New World is probably more fitting, as we now have too much information that people make up stupid things, instead of too little.
