    The one thing that gets me the most about the flat earth thing isn't even the whole its obviously stupid angle

    Its why the **** would anyone mount what would have to be the largest conspiracy theory of all time?
    I mean lets take a second and pretend that the earth was indeed flat.

    WHAT THE **** IS GAINED by saying its round?

    Its not so much what they say as the fact that they are out there.
    Because of the internet they are growing.
    Because of some defect in the human brain that rewards us when we see patterns even if they are not actually there.
    The fact that people get a bit of dopamine released into their brain every time they subscribe to a new conspiracy theory is general is a cause for concern.
    This is the problem with the internet, you take someone and they see videos that cause little areas of their brain to light up and now they believe this sort of bullshit.

    I say prove it is round. As to what is proved, that one is simple you're denying God by saying the earth is round. It's time for this round earth bullshit to end.

    Well included in my original post

    http://www.popsci.com/10-ways-you-ca...earth-is-round

    So by their logic this massive conspiracy is just to deny god?
    Why would countless people want to do that?
    Especially all of those Christian scientist?
    I just can't follow, but I guess logic isn't a part of the equation is it?

    There is a lot of people who believe in crazy ****: creationistm, holocaust didn't happen, ancient aliens, chemtrails, vaccines cause autism, Elvis is not dead, moon landings were fake....

    Some are dangerous and should be stopped, others pose no danger so who cares what they believe.

    For instance, I think this: Why are so many Olympians covered in large red circles? is worse than believing the Earth is flat.

    In my little corner of flat earth, last week a woman died when her shoe got caught in the train tracks. Her hubby got across, but she got mauled to death by hundreds of tons of steel going 60-ish MPH. There was a firestorm on social media, "when are we going to put up fences around the train tracks?" My immediate reaction was similar to my sentiment about flat-earthers; let evolution sort it out, it seems to be doing a pretty good job.

    Unfortunately, for the 17-year-old surviving daughter, the woman's husband died of a coronary, the next morning.
