    So apparently the round-earthers don't think the earth is flat...

    as it turns out,

    the round earthers believe in a round earth. I am doing research for a possible documentary on round-earthers and am also studying round-earther culture as an anthropologist.

    I am wondering.... how many of you are round-earthers? And what proof do you have for round-earth theory?

    Have you suffered persecution for being a round-earther and do you think we should be doing more to protect round-earthers?

    I would also like to know more about your thoughts on the more radical fringe of round-earthers and your thoughts on radical round-earthers.

    @Undertaker

    I get the impression that round-earthers have a strong belief in science. Would you say that's correct?

    Is science a form of objective knowledge or a tool of social control?

    I think we need to take a balanced and moderate approach on the issue

    There are some hills I have seen. They most definitely have a round quality. But also I've seen some flat areas.

    In fact, a source has informed me that there are many "flats" across the UK. I'm not sure the round-earth fundamentalists can quite explain why there's so many flats in the Britain if the earth is round. A lot of witnesses have seen these flats and I don't think they can be dismissed as just another conspiracy theory.

    But there are places with more hills and mountains and I can see that these parts of the earth are more round.

    I consider and enjoy all kinds of conspiracy theories but "flat earth" .. is verrry ridiculous even to me. I wonder why don't flat earthers travel to the "edge", document and snap a few pics to try and prove it that way hah

    So you want someone to risk their life to prove a theory? Easy for you, sitting on your chair, to tell someone go to the edge and take pictures. Does your sense tell you the earth is rotating at 1000mph and orbitting at 70,000mph? Or do you go outside and everything is stable? If the earth is rotating and orbiting at such speed, I'd assume at least a few pilot mis-landing the aircraft, none so far from my understanding.

    How about show some evidences for round earth? Show me a ball with water surround it.

    Having been brought up as a round earth-tard I accepted it as gospel truth...just now I attempted to find pictorial proof to convince you, but instead was confronted with the truth. How we have been misled!

    I admire your courage.

    I hope that God gives you the strength to tell your family.

    It is terrible to see where round-earth fundamentalism is taking society.

    Where are the edges of the earth located?

    I am not saying we should risk lives. However... with technology, we may be able to send a robot.

    Do you ever feel marginalized for being a round-earther? Are there many round-earthers where you live? Or it is more a fringe theory?

    So apparently some anthropologists have discovered a group of round earthers

    Mocking is a worst form of coping.. Keep revealing your ugly insecure personalities...
