Interesting video. I think it is distrust in Nasa, our governments, media, etc. that has fueled some of these flat earth movements.  Combine that with when we learn that much of the history we've learned in school was either incomplete or inaccurate.  Also, I think to some people, this just feels right.  It might be easier to believe we are on a flat earth versus a spinning ball.  I think too that some people just like the idea of it, and that it's fun to think about.  You see that these are the people who believe in a dome over the entire earth, too.  It's a nice thought and not as scary as t...

Last night's Lunar eclipse provided evidence for anyone to see, with their own eyes, that the Earth is spherical, not flat. The curved shadow of the Earth could be seen extending across the Moon. The same curved shadow could be seen from widely separated parts of the Earth, at the same time.

Some people are highly suggestible The Flat Earth Society was originally a spoof.  A joke.   Then the internet came along ......    Some highly suggestible people saw it, took it for real (it's on the internet, it must be true ....), and, with an innate distrust of "authority" then automatically refuted any suggestion they were wrong. Chemtrails is another example of the same thing. And once such people are convinced of something, any attempt to dissuade them of their beliefs only acts to reinforce them.   Oh, and some people are just very simple or very stupid, as well.
