Where did all of these flat earth nutjobs come from?

I have seen a lot of ignorance in my life, but WTF? I have a lot of facebook friends but it seems the handful that post the most are the flat earthers. It's seems that these future mensa members also believe the moon landing was fake and 9/11 was faked/carried out by our government. I am as anti-conspiracy theories as a person can get, largely due to the fact that I can't get 8 people to keep a secret that isn't national security much less thousands, so what sayeth ye ebassers is the earth flat in your opinion?

Having traveled extensively around the county I was born in, I can conclude with absolute certainty that the earth is, indeed, flat as fuck. Why would god make a sphere, is he some kind of ass to you people? You think he's a dick like that?

I think people worship wealth and fame. When someone who is wealthy and famous says the Earth is flat then those people follow. They're also probably climate change deniers that believe the Earth is only 10,000 years old.

I have no fucking idea where they are coming from.


However, I was watching a Kubrick documentary and someone posited that while the moon landing actually happened, there's a strong possibility they faked the footage just to be safe. I wouldn't put that past the government.

I suspect they have existed all along but are revealing themselves now because Trump makes people who believe dumb things feel empowered.

I can't answer the poll because the earth is slightly elliptical and not round.

Flat Earthers are absolutely crazy. In spite of all the evidence to the contrary, including objects placed in orbit that can be easily seen by telescope.

I'm willing to bet that a lot of flat-earthers have never traveled more than a few hundred miles from their place of birth.

This.


I mentioned something about this in the political thread quite a while back. I can't for the life of me understand the flat-earth crowd. It seems most of them are also self-proclaimed devout Christians, but I don't see any correlation between the bible and the earth being flat.

Also, I don't see any reason for there to be a conspiracy that it is spherical. Why would a hoax like that be perpetrated? Who would it benefit and how?

These people are just insane or gulliable.

I feel like, if I was looking to identify people who are easily led, therefore easy to exploit and steal from, trying to convince people that the earth is flat would be a very good method to do that. Same with the "dinosaur fossils aren't real" thing.

Yeah, okay. I can kinda see that. Sort of like a litmus test for stupidity so you can pick out who to rip off next.

That would make sense.

Or to cultivate a group of dum dums who will purchase whatever you have for sale, on an on-going basis.

We see this all over the place; Scientology, Herbalife, etc.
