Is The Flat Earth Society Real?
I See conflicting answers across the internet, it seems almost too insane to be true, but hey, people have believed stranger shit.

Poe's Law.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

From what I've gathered, yes. I too found it difficult to believe, but it seems to be legit.
Like you said; people have believed crazier things. Undecided

RE: Is The Flat Earth Society Real?
Do people who believe in a flat earth still exist? Yes.

Is this particular group actually representative of them, a rumor, or a parody? I don't know.

The human brain hasn't changed much in the past 100,000 years, therefore it is a matter of education and or brain washing to get a person to ignore all modern information about the world, in favor of what they see with their own eyes and what they want to believe.

If you take a human infant from 100,000 yrs ago and raise him or her in this society today, he or she could be a surgeon.
The same can be said of a human infant from today, and if you remove education and replace it with what was known about the world 100,000 yrs ago, you can get someone who will truly believe that the world is flat.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Quick factual correction, this may not be the case. There is some evidence that the advent of agriculture, ca. 10,000 - 12,000 years ago, led to subtle, but significant changes in brain function, some of which may be distinguishable today between those people descended from recent agriculturalists, vs. recent nomads, vs. recent hunter-gatherers. The evidence is not solid, however... Just be aware that humans are still evolving, even today.

Well, the good news is that a long history of science, culminating with cameras on satellites, has proven a (pretty much) spherical Earth to be fact, and dealt so much damage to the opposing viewpoint as to smash it flat as a pancake.

.... the bad news is that this is exactly what the opposing viewpoint was already.
