1293 avaslash Someone like bill gates should offer a $1billon reward to any flat earther who can reach the edge of earth.
465 Theyve_Killed_Fritzz >He asserted that the “freemasons” fooled the modern world to believe that the Earth is round. The photos of the planet taken from space by NASA are “staged,” the argument went on, whereas the voyage to the moon by the Americans was nothing but a “conspiracy” to support the “round Earth myth.” Holy shit...
215 -iSapien- >Presenting the world as a sphere, and presenting it as one of the trillions of stars and planets in the universe, devalues humans, just like the theories of evolution does. Thanks to this systemic religion of science, life is deprived of its meaning. … This leads people to become the slaves of the capitalist system. So instead of objective reality, listen to my bullshit; it'll make you feel better.

106 Levo_Star I really don't understand the flat-Earthers trend. I can begin to at least see why someone may latch on to other idiotic beliefs because it's something so fantastic even though it's quite real like the constant disbelief in the Space race and the moon landings. "WOW PEOPLE IN SPACE?! AND ON THE MOON!!!" it's so fantastic that I can see people living such mundane lives unable to grasp that something fantastic is actually a real thing. But the Earth is a sphere (or rather spheroid), it's a mundane fact and you can observe this without assistance. You can literally just go right now to a window and observe this. The excuse of the most primitive societies is simply a lack of common knowledge but in this day and age not knowing your shapes is considered lacking even by pre-school standards. It is total blind idiocy.

71 darthbone Make no mistake. Conspiracy theorism isn't about truth or lies. It's about narcissism. It's about intellectual self-aggrandizement. Conspiracy theorists don't actually want everyone to believe them. They want a few people, here and there, to believe them. It validates them without making them the status quo, because then they wouldn't be able to maintain their delusion of being uniquely perceptive and wise. Conspiracy Theorism may as well be considered a mental illness in itself, because I've known and interacted with so many of them over the years, and regardless of which delusion they hold, they express it in the same aggressive, manipulative, frenetic way. They assault you with "facts", and then when you, being unprepared to defend your understanding of something that you take to be obvious, let alone defend it against inane, twisted facts and outright lies, are unable to adequately launch a defense to their obsessive and pre-planned onslaught of bullshit, they take that as a cue that they're right, and that they've defeated another sheep in a battle of wits, when all they're really done is the discourse equivalent to sucker punching you from behind. It's a pathology.
