Here you go people:

http://theflatearthsociety.org/cms/

If you go to their forums, they basically defend to the death that the Earth is flat. That  pictures from space are faked. 3D models of the Earth are computer generated. The Earth spinning is an optical illusion. They claim nobody has go into Space but only into high altitude. They claim the Earth is flat, but instead of using real science to explain this, they use fringe, pseudo and incorrect science to back it up.... Look at this picture. They claim that it shows flat Earth.

Even though a video shows the Earth curving, they say it's "bendy light" that makes it look like it's curving.

Some guy asked "how do people circumnavigate the Earth if it's flat?" the answer?

"They just sail in a circle around the north pole. They finish where they started, they go east or west the whole time and claim circumnavigation." They even provide a picture.

Some guy then asks "If the surface of the earth is flat, how did I manage to travel only east and wind up back where I started? Also, how do different daylight times / time zones arise? Thanks for your consideration."

The reply? "This confuses a lot of new people.  Let me try to explain it.  Let's say you are in an empty room that happens to have a large, powerful magnet in the middle of it.  The south pole of the magnet is buried deep under ground, but the north pole is at floor level.  Now you take a compass out of your pocket.  Anywhere you move to in that room, the compass will always show north as being towards the center of the room.

Now, let's say you turn until the compass says you are facing east and you begin to walk, being careful to make corrections as you walk so that the compass always says you are going east.  You would walk in a circle around the magnet and eventually end up in the same place that you started.  It's the same concept on a flat earth.

As for the time zone question, some here believe that the sun travels in a circle around the Earth near what is known as the equator and takes approximately 24 hours to make one revolution.  When the Sun is near the opposite side above the Earth from you, then it is dark where you are but brightly lit on the side where the Sun is located.  It is around noon directly under the Sun.

Hope this clears it up for you."

Seriously? Seriously? What I find most hillarious is that to most sane people, the world is round. There is one "theory" - The world is round... Or, an oblate spheroid.

However, one guy says "There's many versions of FET. Some do state such, yes. Others state that it's a disk, while others even state that they don't know exactly how far it reaches, but it is flat." - There are dozens of different theories for there being a Flat Earth... When Round Earthers have one. So, who is right if the Earth is flat?

I wish some people would just go and troll their website. I mean, seriously... Are these people dedicated trolls? I've known this site for at least 5 years.. It's a hell of a dedication if they are trolling. If they are serious.... They really need help. I really don't get it... somebody... help me :(

Enter the Flat Earth Society. With over 200 members the society is based squarely on the notion that not only is the Earth a flat disc but that every single piece of evidence to the contrary is actually part of a massive conspiracy orchestrated by NASA and the government.

Ignoring evidence and calling it a conspiracy! Where's your evidence there is a conspiracy? *crickets*

Don't forget that...

Members of the Night's Watch swear an oath of duty that is binding for life and prohibits marriage, family and land ownership. Desertion is a crime punishable by death.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

One would think if the earth is flat then you wouldn't see the curvature of the earth when standing on a mountain top or on a tall radio tower. But...there are those that think that the Apollo moon missions and the Halacaust are faked.

Pythagoras said the Earth was round in the 5th century B.C.E.. Hell, Eratothenes estimated the circumference of the earth to within 2% of the actual distance and all he used was a couple of sticks and some simple trigonometry!

A flat earth is one of the stupidest of ideas.

My grandmother believed that the earth was flat. No, I'm serious.

She was born in 1911, a Mennonite (which is an anabaptist... okay, think 'Amish') in Saskatchewan (it's in the middle of Canada... think large and 'really really flat').

She saw airplanes that flew, but she said that "flying wasn't natural" (i.e.: the work of the devil). She also never believed we went to the moon. She just smiled when I asked her about that.

My grandfather watched TV (only for a little while though, in the evenings after his work was done), but my grandmother and the 'television set', no.
