    Were you not convinced by the women at the end of the BBC video? Her research sounded scientific and robust.

    Fair play to most flat-earthers. At least they commit to a position and don't come out with the 'I'm just posing some questions' line so beloved of conspiracy theorists.

    If anyone is in doubt as to what shape the earth is, just watch a large ship sail off into the horizon.

    And the opposite, fishing boat apprearing into view.

    My old maths teacher used to define a straight line as "the arc of a circle whose radius is infinity".
    I totally disagree with him. A straight line is the shortest distance between two points (unless you're driving through Edinburgh of course).

    Both doctored. Unless you've seen it with your own eyes, it's not real.

    Easily explained (on behalf of the Flatliners so to speak ) .....
    The first boat is slowly sinking and the second one is throwing their catch overboard on the starboard side thus making it slowly get lighter and rise in the water.
    Next!

    (TBH, as soon as I hear an off-the-wall theory explained in an American accent, I tend to think "wacko")

    There was a thread on here a while back about this. I remember looking at their website and watching some videos at the time. I find these things fascinating. I often wonder if itís just a big joke, or do people really believe in this sort of thing. Scientology is another one thatís just as weird. It looks like it starts as a bit of fun, then grows into something weird.

    Think it was me who started that. When me and kell were up inn Aviemore in the summer I passed a lot of signs saying 'the earth is flat'. Few days after we were back I seen the same outside bathgate. Also seen one the other day on the cash machine at stenhouse cross tesco.

    I like a few have said looked inot it as curiosity and they truly are mental. I think some Rapper, B.O.B, is trying to fund a space ship to go into the sky and prove its flat by photos

    If you found it interesting/mental reading about this just look at the hollow earth theory as well. Just as mental.

    Just seen the president of the flat earth society on the BBC, he says they have members in many countries around the globe.

    What do they have to say about the accepted theories of the solar system and other planets?

    Is the moon just a flattened piece of tin foil? How are the different stages of lunar illumination explained? Why am I even wondering about what these fruitcakes think?

    Other planets have been observed to be round. The earth has not.


    Apparently.

    It's hilarious

    This should also apply to the shape of their heads.
    They can observe other peoples heads as round, but not their own.

    Rodders appears to be one of the Flat enthusiasts .....
    From EL Courier:
    "AN ATTEMPT to reverse a council decision which blocked flats from being built in Longniddry has failed.
    Seven flats were planned to replace a house at 37 Kingís Road but the proposals were rejected by East Lothian Councilís planning committee at the end of last year.
    The applicant Ė Mr R M Petrie Ė appealed the decision to the Scottish Governmentís Planning and Environmental Appeals Division ."

    Surely the Earth being round is merely all part of a wider Luciferian plot...

    I love a conspiracy theory, my favourite being Hitler escaping to South America, however Flat Earth is just mental.

    The wall of ice however is a belter of a theory.

    The nazis burying under the North Pole is also a favourite of mine. The hollow earth theory is worth a look at as well.
    I still canít work out if these people are being serious or not. I remember reading that the whole Scientology started as a bit of a joke that ended up growing arms and legs.

    You won't find many flat earthers amongst the sophisticated football intelligentsia of the Hibees' support. We like our spherical objects - particularly when they're rolling along the ground or bursting the Jambos' net!

    In any case though, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that the emergence of flat earth theory is in fact just a big fat psyops - put out there by the CIA or similar to discredit
    by association
    those who believe in and promote much more credible conspiracy theories. This makes sense as the sudden emergence of a plethora of video blogger types - many of whom have at least enough intellect to put together some pretty snazzy videos in which they postulate passionately about the bogus drivel-fest that is flat earth theory - just does not stand up to much scrutiny.

    It has been observed that the majority of the sources expounding this "theory" appeared out of nowhere within months of each other - all reading from essentially the same script. There are obviously a few genuine people out there who really are gullible and stupid enough to swallow it, but this notion's seemingly organic emergence just makes no sense at all. By and large, people that are gormless enough to buy into this sort of nonsense would struggle to wield a crayon never mind sophisticated graphics and video editing software - ergo it's another incidence of "fake news" IMO, put out there to confuse and deflect rather than to inform. And it's doing a fine job of it as well! The sheer ludicrous inanity of it has attracted many a cheap hack to fill their column inches with smug knowing analysis, while what look like genuine conspiracies - such as the Skripal and East Ghouta chemical shock stories - are given the sort of analysis that a two year old would be embarrassed by - and the world moves on.

    If I was going to wind up or troll people I would chose a different subject matter and not one that would make me come across as a delusional helmet.

    People lose their **** the moment you even suggest that the earth is flat. It's an easy troll but funny nonetheless
