    The earth is flat!
    More proof!
    The second link has a link for WHY they think this, but when you click their link for "Fighting the Evidence" (disproving it's round), it's under construction [​IMG]
    How ignorant/stupid/dumb can people be? I'd love to sit in on one of their meetings.

    I really, really, REALLY hope that the authors of that website, which i have seen before, are just making a big joke. The arguments they give are just, well wrong. Very wrong. I think a five year old would be able to see the huge holes of logic that they are creating. Personally, anybody who truly believes this rubbish in this day and age should not be allowed to breed.

    Maybe we should strap him to a Delta rocket so he can see for himself.

    I can't believe you guys are totally rejecting this idea just because it "sounds" silly to you. Where is it written that so-called "science" has all the answers? What ever happened to the notion of keeping an open mind?
    Leave it to the self-proclaimed skeptics on this forum to totally close their minds to new ideas before doing any investigation into the observations made by others.

    I remember back in 1969 when a Flat Earth Society spokesman was asked to explain the experiences of the Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 crews who landed on the Moon that year. "Didn't they orbit a spherical Earth?" the spokesman was asked.

    He responded that it was actually an optical illusion encountered by astronauts. It only looked as if astronauts were actually revolving around a sphere.

    Of course, the "explanation" tosses out the fundamentals of orbital mechanics (and math in general, for that matter).

    In a way, it's kind of interesting to have kooky crackpots around. It kind of boosts one's own self-esteem.

    I thought that people that subscribed to this "theory" did not necessarily believe in it per se, but used it to symbolically represent their desire for a simpler lifestyle and belief system. Guess I was wrong.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to start a fight or anything, but as a self-proclaimed skeptic of this forum, I must say that I take great offense to my statement above!
