Wow, that is hilarious...I knew that a flat earth society still existed, but to actually see their website is hilarious :D. I wonder how they actually think they have scientific evidence to back up their claims...

Do those people have no idea of what gravity is? Most of their arguments seem to forget that gravity always pulls you towards the centre of the planet, wherever you are.

Wikipedia wrote:There is a Web site devoted to the Flat Earth Society, ostensibly owned by "Flat Earth Society, Inc.", although it is clearly a hoax. Its slogan is "Deprogramming the masses since 1547" and various tongue-in-cheek explanations of the flat-Earth position are featured. There is also a page devoted to "current events" with a list of unbelievable, undated items. The online membership form is equally quirky. No postal address for the alleged organization is revealed anywhere on the site. The homepage bears a copyright date of 1998.

Currently active, however, is The Flat Earth Society Forums—a Web site collecting Flat Earth and Flat Earth Society information in an attempt to reestablish the organization. It is primarily devoted to discussion boards but also features Flat Earth Society newsletters from the 1970s and 1980s.
I've seen the site before . . . it is funny.

Not only is the earth flat, but fixed as well. :lol:

Since the ball has no gravitational feild like the earth, the earth's gravity would just pull the grains of sand down towards it off the ball. This is ridiculous, what are they even fighting for? is there some big joke im missin here??

You illustrate the absurd by being absurd.

Notice how similar the arguments are to YEC?

...I don't follow. Are you saying you agree with the earth being flat? I was merley saying that since everything is being pulled towards the center of the planet, it wouldmake no difference if the ball was round or flat.

...im so lost...

I presume you are joking but just to make it clear because people don't seem to be getting it, unless they are joining in the joke -

The website is a spoof and is probably designed to make a point about people who (the website creators think) believe outlandish things despite the evidence to the contrary such as YECers etc.
