RE: Flat Earth Society
I find it striking that theism and conspiracy theories are similar in may ways: exclusive knowledge, superiority due to being enlightened by said knowledge, the need to spread said knowledge and the belief that there is an adversary actively working against those with said knowledge.

The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

RE: Flat Earth Society
Also, gravity is just a theory.

'Stationary earth with gravity models exist, but I believe most of the folks who hold this theory also subscribe to the notion that the earth in an infinite plane, since the direction of "gravity" is always down and not toward the centre of the disc.'

So, how do these imbeciles reconcile electricity and electronics? I mean, it all works because of quantum theory which mentions these teeny, tiny atom thingies. If visual confirmation is the only reliable evidence, then flipping a wall switch and having a bulb illuminate must be truly miraculous when those wires don't even move.
Do they believe in germs, bacteria and viruses?
What about history? You can't see history.
They probably have issues with weather forecasting, since you can't see the different pressure zones. Hell, you can't see air! Do they think that air is a conspiracy???

I beleive gravitey exists. I beleive in two thoerys concerning why this: 1) The earth is infinite/expanding with the universe 2) The earth is finite but is the still the vary base of the universe and ultimate gravitationel dent and is being pulled by the expanding universe keeping it flat

Ether way in my gravitationel hipothesis gravitey causes the sun and moon to revolve (or circle) above the sun. The planets revolve around the sun (and the planets moons revolve around the planets. I also think the Earth causes some gravitationel distortion causing elipticel orbits). I beleive the Solar System to be the Milkey Ways center and the other galxaxys revolve the Milkey Way. Tracing it back to the begining this efectivley makes Earth the center of the universe

As earth is the base of the universe i beleive it to be the ultimate gravitationel dent of the universe as told by generel relativitey causing the sun to circle above it

These guys spell like Drich, and have the same kind if theroroeies.
