PS. Click on the map a couple of times to read the text around it. Seriously.

2. Yup. There was some sort of curvature going on and he was definitely looking for profit too.

Twenty-five cents could get you the map, a book, and you could learn to predict eclipses.

3. That wasn't "science" even then.

The idea of a flat Earth hasn't been science for a couple thousand years.

4. If you put "professor" in front of your name and

5. I wouldn't be surprised if there are places in this country where you can still do that.

 

Adding the word "Professor" still impresses a lot of people.

6. Yes. "Doctor" as well.

As in, Rev. Dr. Jerry Farthole.

At some point the christers must have put pressure on th' system to allow them to have "doctorates" in the unseeable, unknowable Religion Industry.

Most* are scamming turds.

*(Dr. Martin Luther King being the only exception I can think of, so don't bother, trolls.)
