People will believe in anything: Holocaust denial, AIDS denial, global climate change denial, moon landing denial and other "theories" like the geocentric universe, young earth and anti-evolution creationism. You have people with their own theories on the JFK assassination and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. You may have the right to believe in whatever you want (whether it's God, UFOs, astrology and human race theory), it's best to have evidence to back up your beliefs as facts.

don't forget aliens denial. Same as with flat earthers, who will offer an "explanation" every time a new type of evidence suggests three dimensional structure, alien deniers will come up with "explanations" just the same, be it weather balloons or swamp gas. They are as ridiculous as flat earthers' explanations. However, internal integrity can be found in both cases, except some areal phenomena cannot be explained by swamp gas and rising Venus. While the flat earth theory is entirely self-consistent. What you cannot put down to illusion you put down to conspiracy.

The bottom line here? Human intelligence has an INFINITE capacity to explain and explain away and always find new "explanations". You can be personally be abducted and travel in space to a populated planet and be aware of the whole event, come back, and if you have videos of everything it will be put down to aliens being secret genetic experiments by the government, the spacecraft will be a black military project, the planet will be a simulation like in a holodeck. Bla bla bla. No aliens, no 3D earth.

Bottom of the bottom line then? You can believe anything you want. Everyone in the Disclosure Project and the Citizen Hearing is lying too. ;)

This should be entertaining. I hope they have some groundbreaking new "evidence", I need a good laugh.

so just because its a conference doesnt give it any credibility whatsoever... they say "next time they may get 1500 attendee's"... oh wow, that many? 1500?   More people than that fill football stadiums just to watch the game

out of the 7 billion world population...1500 attendee's is really a drop in the ocean, a tiny tiny tiny amount of deluded people...

leave them to it I say

You can say that about any conference.

Liberal Democrats and climate change conferences are only attended by a few thousand nutty fanatics. Most of humanity pays them no heed.

I always assumed the Flat Earth Society was just a bit of fun.  No-one took it seriously.   least of all those in it.  Then along came the internet and youtube .......

No doubt the Flat Earthers would say the same thing to those poking fun at their beliefs.

I agree,  Those who genuinely believe the Earth is flat are on a par with those who refute AGW ;)    Both may be right, but the evidence suggests otherwise.

Well that's just a matter of opinion.

But considering that most humans don't believe in climate change and that only 13% of Britons are concerned by it it seems that it's the global warming believers who are the fringe, weird minority. You're closer to the Flat Earthers than the countless millions of humans who don't believe in Global Warming.

Cats would love a flat earth. They'd all be at the ends knocking everything off the edge.

Most humans once believed that bloodletting with leeches helped make sick people better.

Ad populum is a logical fallacy.

Leech therapy is still available on the NHS in Britain.

Not really, there is no evidence for a flat earth and all the first person self-evident proof that the earth is a sphere (ish). No person with any real wit can pretend there can be a flat earth.

Wow, well some believe that the Holocaust never happened. And some believe the Moon Landing was fake. Now we've got this new lot that believes the world is flat!. Sometimes I believe that a portion of Humans are DEvolving!. I believe my theory the most btw. Lol

You may as well close this - and most other - threads down right now. 

Nothing for the remainder of 2017 - short of UFO's landing on the White House Rose Garden - is going to improve my life more than the above story. 

That is just FABULOUS !
