I met someone who believes the "flat Earth theory".

Last edited Tue Nov 14, 2017, 07:52 PM - Edit history (1)

I came home and Googled it and it does exist. People are actually believing this crap all over social media now. They say that the planet is flat, the sun goes around the earth and there is a wall of ice around the whole planet.
I read your replies and this link is almost word for word what this person told me...believe me I ASKED A LOT OF QUESTIONS!

1. If the earth was flat, cats would have shoved everything off it by now.

2. Everyone knows this.

Anything to the contrary is fake news.

5. I wonder if it would do any good to ask that person

for proof of the wall of ice. Like a photograph. Or how do they think airplanes go from one place to another?

9. They have an answer for all of it.

I posted the link above in an edit. Apparently NASA, the Govt and scientists are all in cahoots of course

7. Of course! And it's all carried on the back of four elephants standing on a turtle . . .

. . . who is swimming through space. I read it in a book, so it must be true.

10. Yes, it is all fake and it involves NASA,

airline pilots, photographers, etc. He REALLY believed it and it is a real internet conspiracy theory. I was going to ask if he believed about the fluoridation conspiracy too but thought better of it since he started to go into 9/11 and how there was no plane that actually flew into the Pentagon. Other than this he seemed quite sane.

12. Even better than "flat earth" is the idea that we are living on the inside of a sphere...

We can't fall off the edge because there is no edge. Day and night are caused by the moon circling around the sun, which sits in the middle of the sphere. The rest of solar system and the universe is either orbiting the sun or just an illusion.

Now, try to argue with THAT nutter!

14. Bound to happen.

People have to adapt. Trump was not elected by the sort of people who live on a round Earth. And if they are here, they are everywhere.

15. Same here, about six months back.

I was FLOORED. Dude was completely serious, right down to believing that the night sky we see is really a huge crystalline dome. It was whackadoodle.
