“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.”
There’s your answer. It’s an excuse to make money and party.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
I don’t want to click on CNN, so what’s the darker core?
It’s that whole “consensus” thing doncha know!
These are the same idiots who believe there’s more than two sexes!
Liberalism is truly a mental disorder!
I think I would rather be a Clamper.
Flat earther’s can’t explain half the things we see in the sky. They can’t explain why half the world is trying to fool the other half. They’re out for attention in my opinion, any way they can get it.
What worries me the most, is that right now, the greatest proof they have that the Earth is not round is that this article poking fun at them and debunking their claims, is from CNN.
Now that is truly frightening, given the level of fake news published and aired by CNN. One can almost take it on face value that if CNN is posting it as factual, you better check it for truth every which way from Sunday. If CNN were to publish it as factual that gravity pulled one down toward the Earth, youd better be looking to buy an anchor and a chain to secure yourself to the ground, lest you float off into space in the next few minutes. Due to the lack of veritas, or should I say “gravity,” one can place in their reports, its not certain that they any longer have an authoritative voice to criticize these flat-earthers and what they believe, especially given the incredible (in its true definition) fantasies CNN has, for the last four years, tried to foist off on their ever-shrinking audience.
To quote Mallory Archer, “It’s idiots all the way down.”
The fact that anyone could believe in the flat earth crap is a sure example of how low IQ’s are dropping.
You have ignore just about everything in order to believe the earth is flat. They must think that moon is flat too. Even though they can see with their own eyes that it is not.
Idiot. (Stationary? Everyone knows the flat Earth spins on its edge; that causes day and night. /s)
“Spreading around the globe.”
Say that a few times to let it sink in.
Stupid people on a stupid network
I've always had a feeling that the most vocal proponents of this idiocy don't believe it, just are pulling an elaborate prank on us 'normies'.
Or maybe just big Terry Pratchett fans:
We ALL know that if the Earth were flat, cats would have pushed everything over the edge.
Just another floor of the psychiatric ward that is our society.
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.
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.
