The World is Flat


Life President
Apr 7, 2005
Watched The Martian today and loved it, read the book which was a bit meh but the film far more entertaining. That led me to have a look at NASA's facebook page and all fascinating stuff about what they are doing to get to Mars.

What I also found was bewildering though. There are a lot of people on their comments claiming NASA is lying and that not only did we not go to the moon (a conspiracy theory that at least has some grounding in reality) but that that the world is actually flat.

This doesnt seem to be one or two but quite a few, it might even be some group targetting NASA by the amount of comments.

At first I thought it was just daft trolling but when you read the arguments these people genuinely believe the planet is flat. When you check their facebook profiles they often are quite religious, which goes someway to explain it as science often contradicts their beliefs, but Id have thought most would have moved with the times somewhat.

I never understand people who are so willing to believe any old conspiracy theory and Ive found if someone believes one they are generally likely to believe all of them, but surely any person with the intelligence to put their shoes on their feet and type on a keyboard can see how insane a theory of the earth being flat and NASA doing everything they can to hide the fact is ?
