I love a good cranky theory, and anyone who has been on the internet for more than a few weeks will know that it’s FULL of the feckers.
Creationists, I love a good cranky, and anyone who has been on the internet for more than a few weeks will know that it’s FULL of the feckers.
Creationists, Scientoligists, Young Earth Creationists, 9/11, Apollo moon landings, math cranks, science cranks, black helicopters, etc etc. The list is pointless.
But the ones that I find the most
deluded intriguing are flat-earthers and geocentrics.
It almost beggars belief that intelligent people can state as fact that the earth is flat AND with a straight face.
Well, there’s fuss being made about a Microsoft that is trying to reverse the huge amount of
propaganda misinformation about Vista being shite and not fit for use. Microsoft spending $300 million on advertising, comparing people’s half-arsed opinions of Vista to flat-earthers. Excellent, I agree completely. But they’ve royally pissed the freaks off!
People are definitely prejudiced against flat-earthers
Well funnily enough, yes we are. Because you’re WRONG!
We humans seem to be pleased with just accepting what we are told
Hell yes, let’s not trivial things like facts get in the way.
Many use the term ‘flat-earther’ as a term of abuse
I use retard if it makes you feel any better. I mean come on.
It’s a huge stretch of the imagination to believe that there’s a huge conspiracy about the shape of the earth, considering the evidence.
Occam’s Razor makes short work of their arguments.
Either they’re right and every single photo is a fake to hide the fact that the earth is a 24,000 mile wide cake shape, 9,000 miles deep. NASA, governments, scientists are all in on this and fooling us.
Or, and this radical thought, the world is a fucking globe!
Aristotle knew the world was a sphere over 2,000 years ago, and there’s evidence that the Egyptians knew the same thousands of years before that.
Why is this lost on some people? What is there that makes them believe this.
Well I have some questions I’d like answered by these pricks.
- The passage of the sun across the sky. Explain how is possible for it to be night in one place and day in another on a flat earth?
- Explain the mechanism of how there is ice at the centre (Arctic) and ice at the edges (Antarctic), and yet temperate in-between?
- Wouldn’t the magnetic field and gravity be affected if the world was flat?
- Explain Tectonic plates. How do these work?
- If I go to Snowdon in Wales, should I be able to see New York? How does the horizon work in your world?
That’s enough to get going with for now, come back when you have the answers.
