...or so say a truly terrifying number of people in 2017.
At the Tuesday night meet-ups, dubbed “Flat Earth or Other Forbidden Topics,” believers invite fellow adherents to open discussions in which the like-minded confirm one another’s hunches and laugh at the folly of those still stuck in the Enlightenment.
“There’s so much evidence once you set aside your preprogrammed learning and begin to look at things objectively with a critical eye,” says Bob Knodel, a Denver resident and featured guest at a recent Tuesday meeting. “You learn soon that what we’re taught is mainly propaganda.”
They were stumped at how you explain the eclipse. But screw the eclipse. How do they explain that you can fly east from Los Angeles to New York , east from New York to London, east from London to Hong Kong, and the east from Hong Kong to Los Angeles?
Do they think you can tumble off the edge, and if so, where do you fall? I can only think they don't travel at all, ever.
I may have to research them a bit to see how they answer those questions.

“The heliocentric model says that we’re spinning at 1,038 mph. They say you won’t notice it because it’s a continual motion. But you should be able to feel it. You shouldn’t be able to function allegedly spinning that fast.”
That's some top-notch physics right there. I dunno why Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Heisenberg, Schrodinger, Feynman, and Hawking all overlooked that. Surely I'll never look at science the same way from now on.
A former bunk mate of a U.S. soldier accused of pledging loyalty to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group says they debated conspiracy theories.
Dustin Lyles says Army Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang believed the moon landing was faked, questioned the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and thought the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job coordinated by the U.S. government.
What portion of people who believed that recent conspiracy theory about NASA running a child slave colony on Mars also believe--at the same time--that there was no way NASA could've made it to the moon?
