The Flat Earth Society
So, I recently discovered there is a group of people known as the The Flat Earth Society, who believe, who would have guessed it, that the Earth's shape is a plane and/or disk. They also believe that walls of Ice, Antarctica being one, are what keep us from falling off this flat surface. They have many "reliable" sources that they use in order to back themselves up. Some of these Sources include: The Bible, The Enûma Eliš, Indonesia and Oceanic Mythology, Hinduism, Buddhism, and many others.
Also, the believers of this theory, have gone on many occasions "debunking" evidence that the world is round, including footage and photographic evidence, one of which I believe was a man piloting an airplane around the Earth. And in case that wasn't enough "Debunking" for you, here:
Now, some of you may be saying, although I doubt it, "Nid, how could you be so mean to these people? They have beliefs just like you do. Why can you have your's but they can't?"
First, I would like to say they have every Right to believe in what they want, or do not want, to believe, just as I do and even you do. But, that does not mean I have to respect those beliefs, and of course I'm not going to say they can't say the same thing about mine, because I could care less if they think what I believe in is stupid.
Secondly, I am not telling this directly to their face just to call them stupid, and neither will I, mainly because I don't think I would be able to calmly do so.
Finally, I mainly created this thread in order to inform all of those who willingly click, and read through all of this that do not already know about it because, well, I just enjoy sharing things with other people, and to help expand their knowledge on subjects, even if some subjects may not be the most intelligent. You never know, one of you reading this could be a Future Comedy Writer, Comedian, or even use this as a conversation starter with your future Wife/Husband/Whatever The Kids are into these days.
I hope you enjoyed, and feel free to leave a response below and maybe even answer that supposedly funny Poll.
