    so, this is trending lately... a whole stack of videos and new researchers seem to be popping up on my youtube recommendations. and a lot of my existing subscriptions have been talking about it in some way.



    i've become pretty enamoured with yoga instructor, flat-earther and all-round interesting guy eric dubay. his channel has stacks of stuff but, this is probably the best starting point:

    http://ifers.boards.net/thread/531/flat-earth

    basically that page has a coherent answer to almost every question you'd have regarding the flat earth model.

    what do you guys think?

    So you're saying photos of the Earth from space are photo-shopped?

    This is such a ridiculous "conspiracy" given that it is 2015. Really.

    There's some ridiculous 'theories' on this board, I think this one wins though.

    Yeah I've noticed a large increase in flat earth advocacy across alternative media. Personally I think it's a load of horseshit pushed by shills to make "conspiracy theorists" as a collective look a little more crazy to the average person

    We're actually passengers on an intergalactic tortoise's back as he travels through time and space! Sounds about as plausible

    Taken from their forum ...

    This I have found to be so true. Even in myself. It has taken years of slowly breaking free. We have to be so careful as to how we go about waking up those around us. Especially those we dearly love. It is so easy to be careless and push people away that are not ready. We have a great responsibility. I'm working on getting through to my wife and 3 children. Sometimes I feel as if I have abused them by allowing the brainwashing even though I had no idea myself. Now that I know, I feel it is my duty never to give up until they can see the truth for themselves. So greatful to have found this forum. I need all of the encouragement I can get and want to be an encouragement to others as well. Peace and love to all of you in Christ.

    Didn't you read the faq's in his link? There's a massive wall of ice surrounding the Earth. And if you get too close to it you get turned back by the guys guarding it. You know it makes sense. :p

    I remember seeing it a long time ago and thought the same. The thing is it has recent active posts so hard to tell.
