According to the spanish article in El Pais newspaper, Daniel Shenton is unrelated to Samuel Shenton other than the fact that both of them lived in England, both of them had the same last name, and both of them were presidents of Flat Earth societies.

According to El Pais writer Jordi Costa "Daniel Shenton (sin parentesco con el primer Shenton, Samuel) ..."

In spanish, the word "sin" has a negative application.  In this case, it means he is not his parent.

What does this have to do with anything?
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

Having the same last name, for all I had known they might have been related.

Daniel is only president of TFES because he invented it.

It's not as though he was appointed by a board or anything. He registered a domain, bought some space and dumped some SMF fora in there. The seeds of insanity grow themselves.

Momentum is on our side. We need to organize public debates soon, otherwise we will continue to be treated as a joke.

This is true. John Davis keeps on having meetings but forgets to invite anyone. :(

True.  John Davis's views are much more ideologically akin to Charles Johnson and Samuel Shenton which contrasts with Daniel's adoption of novel opinions such as an upwardly moving earth.  Correct me if I am wrong (with address and meeting times), but unlike James, John Davis and others, Daniel is not the leader of any local flat earth group in London or anywhere.  The Knoxville Flat Earth Society is a genuine ideological child of Charles Johnson's Flat Earth Research Society International of which Daniel was never a member.

He initiated a thread announcing the opening of the Knoxville Flat Earth Society with an open invitation to visit. 
Anyone here interested?  I'm in the beginning steps of making a new group in Knoxville.

I also sent him a private message about this, and he said that it was no problem to visit for one of the meetings although he is still evidently working on gathering a core group of members since his society is so new.

An "upwardly moving [flat] earth" as you so imprecisely put it is still flat, is it not?

I will announce our first few official meetings on here if anyone is truly interested in attending.  I've met with several potential members and talked with them trying to get some structure going on and hopefully in the next month or two we'll have a meeting.  I'll likely also mention it in my upcoming radio interview.

From what I gather there are only a few in the area though that also frequent the site and I have met none.

So, i am assuming this meeting won't be within ten miles of Detroit...

I am truly interested in attending.

You should also think about live-streaming to get to a wider audience. You could also put up vids on youtube of your meetings which would encourage interest and awareness of the flat earth theory.

I just saw this in the new post section and got all excited. It wasn't till I saw Frostee posting that I noticed the dates.
No but I'm guess your what? 90? Cause you just so darn mature </sarcasm>
