Were you aware that there is a Flat Earth Movement that is making a resurgence? Is the earth flat or round?
I knew they were still around, but didn't realize there was an actual resurgence.
Someone ought to grab their leader, whoever that is, & take them on a round-the world flight. Then take them up to the ISS and have them watch the earth for a couple days. I'm not sure even that would convince them, though.
They'd say they were in some sort of cgi virtual reality acid trip!
Looks pretty round from space, but 3% would deny we were in space also
Looks pretty flat from here...
I looked out the back door, across a field, it's flat. 🤓
If you wanna get real technical it's a geoid, or oblate spheroid. But generally "round."
Oblate spheroid! That was my favorite term from earth science!
Haha it's always nice when something sticks. I think my favorite earth science term is "original horizontality". Nerd stuff.
People have believed stupider things based on ad hoc evidence. Round Earth is after all, "just a theory".
"global conspiracy being only held up by deception and subterfuge"

Stay off the Tea Party blogs.
For clarity, I was listening to Coast 2 Coast this morning while I was eating ready and the guest not only believed the earth was flat but that the moon landing was staged and directed by Stanley Kubrick. Out there but worth a poll.
Correction. He didn't believe the earth was flat but that the moon landing was staged. His biggest adversaries are the flat earth ers.
How did I miss it?
I don't know why I wasn't following you. I didn't unfollow you. Weird. Checking it out.
Have they never seen any photos from space?
Those pics are clearly doctored
What's with the down rating on this? Harsh.
It's me Femme. I've become the nemesis of some conservatives lately. Oh well. Lol
Yet in my poll about down voting, people claimed they only do it on biased polls. Uh huh, sure.
Or for people they don't like. :/
I can tell when it happens based on whom I've had interaction with. That's ok though because I've been on an up voting spree,
Can someone explain to me what the down rating is?
If you are on the app, to the right of the question are arrows with a number on top. You can up vote (good) or down vote (bad) depending on whatever criteria you. Choose.
It's flat. When I put a ball on the ground, it doesn't roll downhill.....so....evidence.
actually its oblong.
