The current organization started in England...

That makes it even MORE interesting that it's mostly Americans. The plot thickens!
Hmm so perhaps something about the United States is stimulating and encouraging Flat-Earth-itis. Any suggestions people? I'm thinking that, despite the USA overall being a wealthy and considerably educated nation, Americans have developed a reputation for being somewhat ignorant about the rest of the world. An example would be vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin allegedly believing Africa to be a country.
Thoughts?

Seriously, read Thork's contribution to this thread, you are making yourself look like an ass.  You expect us to read your drivel, you could at least return the favor.

Also, a great many prominent FEers are, in fact, British.  You really should lurk moar.

The Society has its origins in the United Kingdom, as you would know if you had done any research. It stayed there until the late 1960s, at which point its locus shifted to the United States. Voliva lived in Australia for a number of years. And though our current President is from America, he lives in London. I am the Vice President, and I live in Ireland (and was born in the UK).


In short, your thesis is nonsense. Please read more and post less.

Yeah, and I'm asking WHY IS THAT SO. You are the one who should read more. Like for example reading the opening post of the thread in which you are posting.
Stop wearing out your keyboard if you can't provide useful information or discussion about WHY the FES is more popular in the USA.

Interesting. Voliva lived in Australia. The society began in Britain. And yet you are still widely considered to be fringe lunatics by the few people who have even heard of the society.
The conclusion is that the FES has indeed has ample opportunity to prove itself valid to all the 'corners' (please excuse that poor joke) of the world. And it has failed. Exactly why it failed is a question you must ask yourselves. I would guess it has something to do with the FES being completely wrong about everything it stands for.

Lord Oddfish where are you from to bash America so much? Are you from Afghanistan by any chance? You also provide zero evidence to combat the FE theory. You keep saying its wrong, its stupid, its ridiculous, can you justify your outlandish claims please! Have you personally been to outer space and saw the earth as a ball?

Incorrect. I have previously proposed a simple experiment to prove that the sun is much much further away than 3000 miles up. I suggest you read the thread, conduct the experiment, and then report back to me for the aforementioned spanking and "I told you so".

I haven't been to space because there is no outer space. The earth is infinite horizontally and vertically.  Like Levee once said there are no other planets besides infinite earth. And by the way Oddfish the earth is not flat, infinite objects have no shape.

Bible says in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The heavens is the infinite atmosphere where Sun, Moon and the stars are located, but by no means they are distant galaxies or separate independent planets and suns, our universe is infect the Earth.

If you truly believe that I fear for the future of modern science and humanity is general. Do us all a favor and do not spread your lies, humans are gullible and we would not want any more of that going around. I do not need to post anything in the realm of evidence because that would be considered an attempt to disprove what you believe, what you believe is so outrageous it need not be disproved, because it does not even exist in the first place.

NE I believe you have misquoted God. In the beggining God created the heaven and the earth. KJV.  New age bibles and the NIV say heavens, which is wrong. It is a slight difference , but you know that the devil will twist slightly what God says to confuse people,even if just a little bit at a time.

I agree, sorry Pongo, I did not mean to be a contributor to the derailment of this topic.

On topic, I have to say that an accusation about FE being only in America and it being a disease is pretty false. Ideas can not be considered an illness, they can be wrong and poorly thought out, but not an illness. Using America as a example seems to be a new trend in anything that is going wrong in the world.

Hey Hoppy, Does that mean most modern bibles are incorrect? please do not take this as me arguing with you , I am really just asking a question I do not know anything about this subject, but I am curious about the subject. Is modern religion interpreting the bible incorrectly? Do most modern Christians that use the King James bible not worship the correct way? Once again I really am not trying to start an argument I just would like to hear what the background of this claim is. I do not follow religion  so I do not know enough about this subject to even try to claim anything.  So take my questions with a grain of salt if you want to, I would just like to know some facts.

I was in catholic school for 4 years, I am Polish hence why I am catholic, to a degree I kind of stopped with religion after pope John Paul II claimed limbo is false sense I do not believe any human can claim God is wrong in anything So if humans deem God is wrong God must not exist and is just a made up means to control the masses.

LOL. Ok so I can just say "America doesn't exist" because I've never been there? Wow, come on.
The bible also says it's ok to sell your daughter into slavery. And people who work on saturday should have their heads cut off.

Yeah the 'intellectual maleria' thing was a (thinly, I thought) veiled insult/joke that I threw in there. Flat-earth-itis? Come on as if I'm being serious about it being a disease  :D
I was just trying to get the conversation fired up. I don't have anything against Americans in general but I will say they have a reputation for being under-educated about the rest of the world, and I think that really does contribute to people believing flat earth mumbo jumbo.

I've actually noticed that of the people who come here to troll/make fun of/debate against the flat earthers there is a dispropotionately large number of us Aussies.

Coincidence? I'm sure it isn't that people from other countries have more respect for the concept of a flat earth. Why are there so many Aussies here then?

Well this is a new development. Last time I was here the generally accepted map of the Flat Earth included Australia.

Now I have to prove I exist?
