I wonder what they will say about the North Pole now having temps of 27 degrees and all the ice sheet loss there and Greenland?


Wait a minute, 27 degrees is below freezing, which means the glaciers can’t be melting and, in fact, must be getting bigger.

& before you dare say you meant Fahrenheit, I'll have you know that that system's fake! It was all invented by you know who: it even says it in the name, Far-on-the-right. You know who else is far on the right? Those bad people! Yeah, those guys. You know who I'm talking about.

Wait, are most flat earthers politically on the right or left? Not sure if this joke fits if it's the former.

Uh hold on lemme remake that joke in the event that you are correct.

That's right, those folk on that accursed heretical side are trying to make a mockery of our flat earth genius! Why, I'd bet their lovers' chests are flatter than our planet!

Well, if the Earth's suppose to be flat that why not the other planets?

See, that's how you debunk them. Just bring up the fact the other planets are globes so therefore the Earth is a globe and if you don't agree you are so f***ing dense I don't understand how you are beyond the level of vegetable.
This nation a funsion between capitalism and social democracy (the only type of socialism made to actually be incorporated into capitalist governments rather than trying to destroy it).

This nation is PMT/FT. Sometimes modern tech.

We sometimes use pokemorphs and digimon in our armed forces. Sometimes

We are technically centrist.

This nation is a reunited Yugoslavia (and also sometimes controls the UK as well).

We're talking about people who believe space is full of a fluid called Ether and that stars are holes in the roof of creation. I'm not sure logic works on them.

Why do these people exist? Should we just launch them into space to give them evidence...while the ship is hurtling towards the sun.

I mean there exist multiple psuedoscientific theories out there, doesn’t mean to believe one is to believe all.
Most of the time I have no idea what the hell I'm doing or talking about.

No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is

I don't know about America, but here in Canada there is a huge difference between what schools say they do and what they actually do.

I don't know about the rest of Canada, but in Alberta curriculum is set and approved by the province, and provincial achievement and diploma exams necessitate that teachers actually follow that curriculum; significant deviation would show in the publicly available results.

For instance, I was educated in the Catholic system and was never exposed to any creationist/FE conspiracy theory nonsense.

.......I don't know why they think the states that accepted common core don't actually use it. It's pretty obvious when you get a student that's moved from another state and is right up to speed....

Conspiracy theories?

Hopefully the entire mission would be recorded in a live stream but the Flat Earth people would say it was fake and those people didn't really burn up in the sun.

I dont think id go that far. Maybe take on the flat Earth people and send them to the ISS for a day. But i think there's no convincing these people. Some even think dinosaurs didn't exist. How could you concoct an entire species that existed for almost 200 million years?

Dinosaurs are obviously a fabrication by the New World Order to convince us to accept the shapeshifting Reptilians as our overlords. /s

Of Course. The Titanosaur at the Natural History Museum was made up by a bunch of scientists as is every other dinosaur. The bones were created in a factory and then a story made up about them. How someone can actually believe dinosaurs didn't exist is beyond insane.
