Meet The People Who Think The Earth Is Flat... They're Serious, Too

Submitted by: fancylad 2 weeks ago in Lifestyle Weird


The theory that the world is flat gained so much popularity online that this year 500 people gathered for the first ever International Flat Earth Conference. Sold out since May, the conference brought together hundreds of people who had before only really interacted online. It was an opportunity for believers to network, share research, meet thought leaders, find a flat-earth compatible mate, show off various NASA parody t-shirts, and talk shit about Neil deGrasse Tyson.

There is a great podcast called "Oh No It's Ross and Carrie!" where they hang out with the fringes so we don't have to.  They do a non mean report on these people.  Their last one was with Mark Sergent, the ambassador for flat earthers.  Nice guy, but the levels of complex conspiracies that he believes in boggles the mind.

I didn't watch it all. Is there footage of the conference attendees comparing notes and/or disagreeing with each other? I mean, at some point, aren't two of these folks going to get together and one of them convince the other of some error in calculation?

cheeseb comparing notes would indicate they are capable of reading and writing - and disagreeing would be a display of critical thought processes.  These are all examples of more advanced life forms.

When these types get together i don’t think they will try and convince each other of anything: I’m afraid they will reproduce and we will have more of them.

I find it ironic that people mock them when the mockers themselves can't prove anything themselves.

monkwarrior It also entails getting rid of all personal possessions - like computers. But modern "monks" like yourself ignore this part and spend massive amounts of senseless hours on the internet, making obvious troll statements like the one that started this thread, that everyone ignored because it was so trolly. Wouldn't this energy be better spent devoting yourself more to God? I can imagine the conversation you're going to have when you die and you have to explain your blatant hypocrisy.

Back when our profiles showed our location, monkwarrior's was listed as "Canada". 

The Rules of St.Benedict don't allow for personal property, so he wouldn't be from any Benedictine or Trappist monasteries in Canada, or anywhere else.

The Rules of St.Augustine call for vows of poverty, and a detachment from worldly affairs (such as his conspiracy theories).

Orthodox monks also take a vow of poverty, and becoming a monk is a slow process with them, as the vows are supposed to be a lifelong commitment.

There's no indication he's an actual (Christian) monk.

markust123 as noted previously, that would be your envisioning of 'modern "monks"', so you can't expect many people to fit the box of your definition, especially when there are many varieties and forms, as you should already know.

Is this a patented American Stupidity, or are there Euro-Idiots or Afro-Morons who believe the Earth is flat?

Gerry1of1 in Europe there are some, I'm not proud to say. Strange though that the most science-educated nations like Japan, Singapore etc don't report flat-earthers? I really wonder if a good educative system might help them understand what ancient Greeks already knew ?

We can send these people to space, and they still wouldn't believe the earth is round while looking at the earth in orbit.

When your scientific education is based on the nonsensical ramblings Youtube/Twitch streamers, it's not shocking that you end up believing the earth is flat.

Some of them are just looking to make a dime (a sucker born every minute), some are trolls and the rest are incredibly deluded people that do not have a basic understanding of science.

"do you feel yourself spinning, wobbling, gyrating?"

No dipshit. It is called inertia, my 3rd grader is learning about it now. Maybe she can teach you. Do you feel movement when you are on a plane going 600 mph? No? That's because we don't sense motion, we sense changes in motion.

Next to bumper sticker that says "bible.com". Ya that pretty much sums it up.

That's the point. Insane people think they are mentally sound.
Every normal person question his mental state and abilities. Only the loonies think they are "stable and sound".

"I do not believe the Earth is round despite thousands of photographs, thousands of hours of video, the eye witness testimony of hundreds of people who have seen it first hand, 2,500 years of accepted science, and the word of every scientist on the planet"

muert It is a proven fact, and endlessly discussed, that:
  1. Monkwarrior firmly believes in something that cannot be proven, repeatedly states that proof is not required and no amount of logic can sway him.
  2. Monkwarrior refuses to believe something that has been proven beyond any shadow of a reasonable doubt, repeatedly claims there is not enough proof to meet his satisfaction, and no amount of logic can sway him.
  3. Monkwarrior is incapable of seeing the hypocrisy in these two, opposing beliefs.
