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').

I'm surprised she couldn't see the curve of the earth being out in the Prairies over 100 years ago....

I wonder if some of those people look up at the moon, see that it doesn't rotate about it's axis, and let that help confirm their bizzare theory without knowing, or wanting to know, how astronomy works.
Umm...the moon does rotate on its axis....

Seriously... It must be a joke/troll site. I just don't believe people can be in that mind.If the world is flat... Can you walk off it? Also, why does NASA waste billions on launching a spacecraft vertically when they can place it on the edge of the Earth and launch it horozontially. I don't get it.... Perhaps it's a cool thing to do, to be "different".

If observed long enough it's clear the moon is round.

Alas, yes they can. Look at all the other lunatic theories that find takers (illuminati, 9/11 truthers, reptilian aliens, David Icky, etc etc), and you will that there are plenty of people willing to gobble up the craziest ideas, no matter how absurd. There simply is a willingness by a segment of the population shut off their brains and "believe".

Well, might be the same ones who believe women can't get pregnant as a result of 'true rape', and pregnancies resulting from rape are a gift from god.

On the one hand he says they use scientific theory and apply it to their belief that the world is flat, and then on the other hand he simply says that he thinks if someone gets to the edge of the world then they fall off...

...yeah...
