Flat Earth Society
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The Flat Earth Society is an organization first based in England and later in Lancaster, California that advocates the belief that the Earth is not a sphere but is flat (see flat Earth). No modern religious groups or scientists have published support for this belief. This exposed the society to much outside ridicule and made it a popular metaphor for dogmatic thinking and unreasoning adherence to tradition, with the term "Flat-Earther" coming to refer to a person who rejects changes in the scientific consensus, and by extension one who lives in the past.

The Flat Earth Society today
Although there is no currently active website for the society, someone (apparently a relative of Samuel Shenton) maintains The Flat Earth Society Forums. This website, which offers a discussion forum and an on-line archive of Flat Earth Society newsletters from the 1970s and 1980s, may or may not represent a serious attempt to rejuvenate the original Flat Earth Society.
