What can I say... in this day and age!?
Facinating. Just facinating. Thanks for the link
EDIT: Facinating in a "this is outragous" way lol, just wanted to be clear
this article is a joke right? not to offend/shock i've seen the curvature (albeit slight, but none the less) of the earth. unless this is the matirx...
I love the fact that he says that there's 1000's of people who support it, but he can't prove it, but there really is, honest....
I knew what you meant My favorite is the guy who thinks the world just goes on forever... 'infinite'
There was something on QI (British TV show)...
'...It's not a lot better than the woman who accosted the philosopher and psychologist William James after he delivered a lecture on the solar system.
"Mr James", she said, "we don"t live on a ball rotating around the sun, we live on a crust of earth on the back of a giant turtle." "If your theory"s correct, madam," replied James politely, "what does this turtle stand on?" "A second far larger turtle, of course!" she snorted back. "But what does that stand on?" pressed the philosopher. "It"s no use, Mr James", snorted the old lady triumphantly, "it"s turtles all the way down!"'
I've been getting looks all morning because I keep picking hilarious threads to read
Those people should look at the sun and the moon and wonder what shape are those planets in?
So what if there are thousands of people with IQ slightly below GW Bush, so what? They are going for the villiage mor*n prize? Probably the same people that falls for the Nigerian scams. =p
If you mean "the world is flat" in the Tom Friedman sense of the phrase than I would agree with you. Otherwise those people claiming the flatness of the world have obviously never been in a boat or a plane.
1. Buy photoshop.
2. Lie to flat-earthers.
4. PROFIT!!! from fake space program.
QI can seriously mess with your head. In last weeks Friday night repeat National Treasure Stephen Fry™ told us that Pluto isn't a planet, Bangkok does not exist and that the earth has two moons!
Even more shocking than the earth being flat, Stephen Fry may have got his facts wrong
Wow, twice in one episode. In 1997, the asteroid 3753 Cruithne was found to have an unusual Earth-associated horseshoe orbit. However, astronomers do not consider it to be a second moon of Earth, and its orbit is not stable in the long term.
i'm seriously scared that people take this stuff seriously. i hope i'm wrong though.
How dare you question Stephen Fry! Burn the heretic!
If Stephen Fry can be wrong so can we... maybe it is flat after all... Or urinal shaped?
If Stephen Fry can be so wrong... that's it, I'm leaving now, to throw myself off the edge of the Earth!
In my youth I tried once, and only once, to have a discussion with one of these people. There is absolutely no reasoning with them, they are certifiable. They are nuts. If they want to believe that the Earth is actually an infinitely big layer of sod, **** 'em.
See the whole flat earth thing is destroyed by every other planet being round, that we have a night and day cycle that has a different time compared to GMT all over the world, and (thanks to the comments section) lunar eclipses.
I'd love to speak to a real flat earther and listen to how they get out of them questions.
And have they never been on a boat in the middle of the ocean, or ever used a high altitude plane?
It probably all here
Cause of day and night
Solar and lunar eclipses
Loss of time sailing westward
See, they have answers for everything!!
I, too, am a believer that the earth is flat.
I'm still waiting for the pun for this...
No pun needed. I believe the world is flat.
I mean, if the world was really round, science tells us that Australians would fall off the earth. They would have to walk around all day on monkey bars and their cars would have to be on rails.
Some people juggle geese.
It's depressingly unsurprising, for every genius there's a blathering moron as IQ is a normal distribution.
From one of them links-
I really, really want to meet one of these people.
The really dissapointing thing about all this, or at least that site, is these people show some level of education. Getting their point across with formulas and (stupid points aside) seem to have some intelligence but they've lost the plot entirely. Shame.
Also if we're flat how come water isn't spilling off into space? How is gravity accounted for and where does it originate if not from a centre that is balanced all over the world?
you can't be serious.
