UK’s First Flat Earth Conference Ends

There are a select number of people who, despite all the best information available to them, believe that the Earth is actually flat. Usually, that theory doesn’t extend to 4 elephants on top of a turtle, but it’s something I’ve always struggled to come to terms with. Not that the Earth may be flat (I’m a pretty nailed on believer that it is mostly round), but the fact that some people may actually really believe this.

Part of me wonders whether the Flat Earth Society is more of a group of trolls who just like to infuriate people. If that is true, then well played because it works really well. The sad fact though is that I think some people really believe this to be true.

Well, believe it or not, the UK’s first convention, which was held in Birmingham, has just concluded.

Why do they think the Earth is flat?

I’m not entirely certain, but I think it’s mostly based on dodgy science. Despite the fact that NASA has categorically proven that the Earth is round they’re not convinced. They assert that NASA is simply lying about this. Why they would lie is beyond me. Whether the Earth is round or flat is more of a case of establishing fact rather than it having any impact on the price of bread.

The event apparently hosted many speakers who cited their theory on the shape of the Earth. While none of these apparently held any scientific qualifications, why should we let a trifling matter like that interfere with their good work?

Despite it only being around a 20-minute drive from where I live, I decided not to attend. I have enough crazy in my life without attending a conference.

What do you think? Do you think these people really believe this? Is the Earth flat? In addition, would you have attended the conference had you known it was on? – Let us know in the comments!

    To clarify, The First Flat Earth International Conference was held in November of 2017 in Raleigh, North Carolina:

    “hosted by Creation Cosmology Institute and Celebrate Truth. FEIC is composed of individuals and organizations uniting around the common purpose of research and education pertaining to the true scientific analysis of the created earth. FEIC features presenters from various backgrounds and belief systems who have each made an impact on the larger Flat Earth Community.” – [FaceBook Group About statement]

    The UK Conference included discussion of experiment, debates with scientists and posited alternative theories to the given and general accepted without question hypothesis that the earth, among other things, is exactly as we have been told throughout our recent history.

    Personally, I think it championed the idea of Discernment and thinking for one’s self.

    Finally – This gathering provided a venue and opportunity for many free thinkers to engaged in a level of open minded discussion that they may not have access to in their daily lives.

    This experience for so many was an uplifting and affirming one, in which they were comforted by a feeling of community and realization that maybe, just maybe, they weren’t alone.

    Perhaps if you consider attending future events, you may find it is not as crazy as you assume.

      While I respect your support for the Flat Earth Movement and completely acknowledge the very valid points you make, I’m afraid that they will never make a believer out of me.
