Seriously, people, I'm losing hope for humanity.

It seems that this entire debate will never end because, rather than actually make intelligent arguments, most people seem fixated on insulting the other side and calling them ignorant pigs.

And both sides are JUST as guilty. FE AND SE.

So just stop the trolling, and actually DISCUSS. Please.

And, before you ask, I'm a SE'er. Currently. That "currently" qualifier indicates that I'm open to discussion, and that if I'm given evidence that I find convincing enough, I will switch sides. However, that will likely take a LOT of work. I'm rather fond of my Occam's razor, thank you very much.

Well, first off, I'd like to know where I could get more information on this flat-earth theory. It seems pretty ludicrous to me, but I'd like to know more about it before I make a decision about whether it is plausible or not.

This is the best place to get that info.  Just be warned, there are a lot of trolls that post 'on the FE side'.

Oh, I'm quite sure that there are trolls posting on both sides.

Assholes are assholes, no matter where you go.

Okay... Did you QFT as in: "Quoted For Truth"

Or did you QFT as in: "Quit Fucking Trolling"?

Phew. For a moment there, I was worried that I was being percieved of as a troll. Not much that I dislike more than a hypocrite.
