Flat Earth Movement Growing

So it seems the notion of a flat Earth has seen a comeback and is a growing movement in the United States and other countries.
http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-col ... story.html

It boggles the mind how one can be so ignorant and uniformed to believe the Earth is flat. It was known even during the time of Ancient Greece Ptolemy, Aristotle and Pythagoras used calculations of the earth's shadow during lunar eclipses to conclude the Earth was round. Another Greek mathematician Eratosthenes realized the earth was round because during the solstice in Alexandria, Eqypt there was a shadow cast by a stick in the ground but in the city of Syene (now Aswan) which was further south there was no shadow as the sun was at a different angle. Therefore he concluded the Earth was round. This would not be the case if the Earth was flat.

But some of these people go even further they not only believe the Earth is flat, they don't think satellites or the International Space Station exists, the Apollo landings never happened, Earth doesn't rotate, the Earth is the center of the universe, and gravity isn't real.

The fact that this movement is growing and people have such ignorance of science and facts is frightening. I would suggest these people visit a museum but they'd probably say its all fake anyway designed to continue deceiving people.

What's your thoughts NSG? Why has this movement been growing and how could someone honestly believe the Earth is flat when its been known for over 2,000 years that its not?

People with nothing better to do will believe anything to be different and in the opposition. Just ignore them and they'll stop their silly bullshit.

But what about the few who actually believe in what they are saying?

How can we tell?

Just because there are a few who actually believe in time cube does not mean that we should get them to change their minds, especially if most of those who claim to follow time cube have nothing better to do?

I am sure most of the "growth" comes from Poes and people who are bored as shit.

And just like that, Flat Earth Society has members all over the GLOBE.

I still refuse to believe it. I mean, ok, let's say it is flat. What if... someone falls off? No matter how hard the government covers it, there will always be that stupid one with a sailboat who travelled a tad too far and promptly fell off.

To be fair, I used to thought that Earth is flat AND have layers. How? My dad once went to Japan for a business trip, so I thought that Japan is up there (like, I never see a plane land before). I thought all the other countries are above Myanmar in some invisible layer (or high up in the atmosphere). That was when I was 6 years old...

They will probably tell you Antartica is a wall of ice that keeps you from falling off and that people have been duped into believing the ice wall doesn't exist.

OK, how would the government hide THAT exactly?

I have no idea. They would claim doctored photos and mass brainwashing over centuries. The world famous Blue Marble photo was taken in 1972 long before CGI and Photoshop.

Its like claiming the moon landings didn't happen. Its estimated over almost 400,000 people worked on the Apollo missions. if it was truly faked someone would have said something by now.

And not jabbing on the government, but you will realise that most of them are not exactly the top secret CIA or KGB agents that we all know from the movies. They do have their moments of clumsiness. Case in point: http://www.cracked.com/article_20394_th ... crets.html

So if a government is hiding something, it will probably take a decade or less for someone to leak it out of dumb unluck.

When a small group of people start off coming up with clever jokes, they'll eventually attract a bunch of sincere idiots who think they're being serious.

So just to be clear here, you're not talking about me right? I mean, i'm an idiot (duh), but not paranoid/retard enough to believe the Earth is flat.

I'm pretty sure that that was meant generally, not directed at anyone specifically.
