"I don't want to be a flat Earther," David Weiss says, his voice weary as he reflects on his personal awakening. "Would you wake up in the morning and want everyone to think you're an idiot?" But Weiss is a flat Earther. Ever since he tried and failed to find proof of the Earth's curve four years ago, he's believed with an evident passion that our planet is both flat and stationary -- and it's turned his world upside down. "I absolutely freaked out," Weiss tells CNN in a phone interview. "It literally whips the rug out from underneath you." Now, Weiss finds it tedious to associate with the majority of people -- though he "unfortunately" still has some friends who believe in a round Earth. "I have no problem with anybody that wants to believe we live on a ball. That's their choice," he says. "It's just not something I resonate with."
Weiss' preferred community is those who share his life-altering belief. And that community is vast. This week, the businessman attended the third annual Flat Earth International Conference, held at an Embassy Suites hotel in suburban Dallas, Texas. Organizers told CNN that about 600 others went too.

I learned many years ago that the earth is flat on all sides. I know, kinda bizarro, but it was right there in my Superman comic book.
Just a big cube. I never did figure out how you sail a ship over the edge to get to another face of our bizarro world.
The Qur’an says that the earth is flat sitting on the back of a whale swimming in an ocean. It also said the Moon split in two.
Some of the “flat earthers’ are pranksters playing dumb on the internet. Like people who claimed not to know who Paul McCartney was.
“I seen it!”
I listed to a guy that sounded convincing that the earth was flat but his facts were flawed. He showed a picture of a mountain range over 100 miles away that he said should not be seen if the earth was round. What he did not know was mirage. People sometimes see ships in the dessert. Light is bent by the air. Surveyors and know mirage.
Go to the docks and watch ships go out to sea with binoculars. They sink into the horizon till only their masts show not shrink in size till they are too small to see.
Let me guess, he is a Democrat..
When the Eugenic Cleansing begins, they will have also, along with Democrats and Socialists, have seats on the Rocket to Magic Land where all their wishes come true.
There is a Twilight Zone called "To Serve Man". The directions to Magic Land are in the book.
Do you want ants?
Because flat earthers are how you get ants.
Great post... thanks for making me laugh.
The notion of a medieval European belief in a flat earth is a 19th century hoax by American author Washington Irving which has been kept alive by the Left.
Truth! And used to disparage Christians.
I’m telling you.
It is dark here right now.
6:30 at night.
Public education has successfully achieved it’s goal with these people, and the democrat party is reaping the benefits.
Um...if the earth is flat, and climate change is going to flood the earth, won’t the extra water simply spill over the side?
“Flat” is a social construct. So is “round.” One person’s “truth” is as good as another’s. Who am I to judge?
There are people who believe when you die you go to heaven.
+. True idiots.
Can’t fix stupid.
No wait....the Moon IS flat...a round flat disc....
You only ever see one side of it.
” Ever since he tried and failed to find proof of the Earth’s curve four years ago, ....”
Must have been using some of them climate change “scientists”.....
You’re both correct!
