    Default You want Conspiracy? The World is Flat!

    http://theflatearthsociety.org/cms/

    Let me learn ya...
    In 1*956, Samuel Shelton founded a society that subscribed to a theory about the shap*e of the Earth -- namely, that it's flat. Shelton based his theory upon what he called common sense and personal observation. He called the scientific evidence for a globe-shaped Earth "dogmatic," meaning scientists were making this claim without adequate evidence. Later, when people showed him pictures of the Earth taken by satellites, Shelton claimed the photos were fake. He and the members of his society continued to support the idea that the Earth is flat and that those who disagree are part of a conspiracy to keep the truth about the Earth hidden.

    You want conspiracy? A mysterious fire in 2011 destroyed much of the groups records. Coincidence?

    How many of you have actually been in space? Can you honestly tell me every single picture of the earth is not fake? Not part of a conspiracy from the Illuminati?

    Here is some science, that disproves the notion of a non-flat earth.

    So we're gonna take one ridiculous conspiracy theory to make every conspiracy theory ridiculous?

    Is that what we're doing here?

    Problem with that is only an extremely small percentage of people actually support the belief that the world is flat...

    If CNN conducted a "quick" poll... you think 70% of it's voters would agree that the world is flat?











    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion...iracy_theories
    Opinion polls about 9/11 conspiracy theories








    And how great is this?

    New York Times / CBS News have conducted a number of polls on the Iraq War that have included the question:

    "Was Saddam personally involved in 9/11?"

    April 2003 responses: 53% said Yes, 38% said No.
    October 2005 responses: 33% said Yes, 55% said No.
    September 2006 responses: 31% said Yes, 57% said No.
    September 2007 responses: 33% said Yes, 58% said No.
    Seriously? In 2007 33% still said yes.

    What do you think of Area 51? In all seriousness....not meaning to mock. When i was younger that was a huge deal, and it seemed like the documents that became unearthed under freedom of information (because they were old) felt like they referenced something. You know, the old UFO files.

    Totally seriousness, not making fun and apoligizing in advance if you think that kind of speculation is stupid.

    I don't think the point is to equate the conspiracy theories, but to demonstrate that even in the light of real obvious evidence contrary to the theory people are willing to believe anything.

    Take a second to reflect. It is incredibly obvious to anyone that isn't a flat earther to see that it is an incredibly flawed concept. However people that prescribe to the theory believe they have a world view that is completely consistent with reality. So even with evidence to the contrary they are quite capable of ignoring or rearranging evidences to fit with their beliefs but they don't consciously know they are doing it. No matter how loose or wrong their "facts" are, they are unable to see it. now ask yourself a question, is it possible, that even a fraction of your beliefs are based on faulty evidence or logic? are you subconsciously dismissing something to maintain your beliefs?

    The answer is yes, because we all do it. But people need to recognize they are doing this. That is the important bit. So many conspiracy theorists are just as sheep like as the people they refer to as sheep - or even more so if they erroneously call someone a sheep simply because they are in the out-group and not because they blindly follow some else's idea (as long as it is counter to the mainstream).

    You guys have it all wrong.

    The Earth is hollow.

    And Hitler together with much of the Nazi empire escaped to the inside of the Earth and they continue building an Aryan utopia there, ready to take over the world when we mess up.
