Funny story, will share, I was literally in tears from laughing.

Was taking my mother to a psychiatrist for her delusional disorder, she belives in all sorts of strange things, like katsung a bit but nowhere near that bad.

Waiting in the hospital, on my phone on the FES website, mention to my mother about the forums and that I post here a fair bit.

Bear in mind I nearly had to drag her to hospital because she thought the doctors and the whole hospital where in league with her neighbours to "get her."

My mum after hearing about the FES in the middle of a psych ward.

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY THINK THE EARTH IS FLAT!? WHAT'S WRONG WITH THEM ARE THEY SERIOUS!?"

Guess you kinda had to be there.

That was very rude and insulting of her. I think you should send her repeated emails telling her how evil here comments are and how your job is to save lives. After all she said they were SICK.  Sound familiar?

I suggest several sites for this reason. Hoping we find one that is not actively moderated.

I'll wait for your list of sites you think will have these old salts that think the world is flat .



That would be  . . .  Bloodydecks.com

A forum of diehard, hardcore offshore sport fishermen.

50% San Diego based, 50% world wide.
Members from as far away as Dubai.

The forum is way over 100,000 members and there are few rules.
It is actively moderated for abusive threats and not much else.
They allow users to weed out the weirdos by sheer ridicule.

Put your thread in 'everything else' and let the fun ensue.

Let's see what happens:



Link to thread.

http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/the-earth-is-flat.645011/

Hopefully we will be able to see who voted and how long they had been members on that site.

That way no one can claim the results were skewed by people making one or multiple accounts to vote.

I don't think they will delete the thread, it's not a raid we're not breaking any rules.

Should be interesting.

Guys, nevar get ads, this site is such a pleasure to browse compared to other forums with ads.

Anytime you wanna meet up for a beer fliggs, just let me know.

I was actually making a joke about the reaction most people have when they hear about the FES, it's usually indignant anger, sound familiar?

Here you are again, being rude, insulting and calling people names. Further proof you're only trolling here.

Trolling???? You dont even know What that is! It did backfire! They thought a sailing forum would agree that earth is a globe, and the poll says otherwise!!! Check the site! As to not speaking about things in reality. I stand by my statement. Either youre afraid to speak about flat earth to other people in reality, or you cannot because you are a robot.

I find your thought process, bizarre. Have you asked your elders about flat earth? You may be surprised that a good many older fellows believe the earth is flat...

Yes I have talked to my elders about a flat earth. They all laughed at me.  :(

Maybe they were just laughing at you, not at the idea of a flat earth. Try hanging around the docks at a marina, there are plenty of old salts who know the earth is flat.
What was your conversation like with the old salts?

There doesn't seem to be a round earth consensus among the sailing community. If I joined and voted, it would be tied with a few maybes...
Are the voters visible? It's possible a few voters might be swayed by a sort of "Shy Tory effect" or "Bradley effect" might be in play.

Well I got to say a stand corrected.  I just have not ran into anyone claiming a FE around marinas. I did not make an account for that site and can not read the post, but by the comments here it seems at least one person was not convinced the Earth is round.

I have bellied up to the bar with merchant marines, commercial fishermen, various ex-members or current members of different countries navies.

Of course except for one time rather recently I never discussed the shape of the Earth.  The closest is normally navigation,  like landmarks, distances I should see them and bearings when talking about fishing spots or good anchorages.

It has got me curious.  I rather suspect sports fishermen and recreational boaters would be most likely believe the Earth is flat.  Maybe sailors not responsible for navigation or doing things like estimating range might be more likely to believe in a FE.

When I get some time I will pick several sites with what would likely have different demographics covering ex-navy, commercial fishermen, people who blue water cruise and recreational.

Well here is what eddiefishtaco Well-Known "Member" has to say on the question of whether the earth is flat:

Nope. It's not flat Earth It is a bowl. Can you put water on a flat disc? Nope. It would spill, that's why Menudo is served in bowls. And that's why we have a super bowl. It's the maximum cult. Go Raiders

I like the link between fat shaming and flat shaming. It suggests that both are based on unhealthy habits.

So results so far.

Is the earth flat.

Yes       = 5

No        = 8

Maybe = 4

So the only thing we can be sure of, is on earth shape, people aren't really sure.

Minus a few trolls I think, but it's actually a pretty even spread.

Similar situation. I work with a lot of Mormons. The subject of scientology comes up. One of the Mormons says "scientology? That bizzare cult? Why would anyone believe in anything so impossibly stupid?"

"There doesn't seem to be . . . . ", such great evidence and where do they sail?
Around San Francisco Bay or Chesapeake Bay? Maybe the adventurous go all the way to Catalina Is.

But try that out among the global yacht racing community, especially any that have circumnavigated the Globe!

PS I thought you believed in a "a round earth", or have you changed to a square one with "four corners"?
