I love a good conspiracy, I do. Even the insane ones often have a little bit of truth in them. But there are two major problems with the flat earth theory:

1. Everything else in the universe is (roughly) spherical. Planets, stars, even space rocks are jagged spheres. You can use a decent-quality telescope, or even a pair of very powerful binoculars, in your back garden, look at the planets in our solar system at night in a clear sky, and see that they are spherical. You can look at the moon with your naked eyes and see it is spherical. Everything is spherical. Why would earth be different?

2. What the hell would be the point of trying to convince people the earth is spherical if it is actually flat? Who gains anything from that? Who profits? What the hell would be the point?

I always thought that the 'Flat Earth Society' was a bit of a joke...as in the people who are members are in on the joke. Just a mental exercise to try and prove something that they don't believe themselves. And for sport, maybe see if they can get a few people who are NOT in on the joke to buy into it.


And the same principle can be applied to some other conspiracies, like 9/11. I think 'Loose Change' was like that. I think the guys who made that movie were laughing all the way to the bank.

Until recently, it never occurred to me that people really did believe stories like this. I discovered at about the same time, that Iíve been giving our species too much credit.... people can be fkn stupid.

You might be right, but it's difficult for me to fathom.


For instance, I still believe Inevitable is trolling; that he can't really be serious.


I'm probably just naive...

Nobody could do a long con for this long without fucking up somewhere.
Considering the standard of flag waving imbeciles it could be quite genuine in its beliefs as per the libpuke agenda.
