If by minority, you mean within a defined set being less than 50%, then yes.

lol..  Do you have any evidence of this?

Even if everyone on the globe thought the earth was flat, they would all still be wrong.  We don't live in a time where this is a hard question to answer anymore.  Get over your fears and start accepting reality.

I didn't say their POV of view is correct and it doesn't have to be.  If you compare flat earther to round earthers, they are the statistical minority.  Being a minority doesn't give some magical credence to their claims or special benefits.

The original question asked if round earthers are the minority.

Out of respect I call them Globularists instead of round earthers.
The term round earther is quite derogatory. Much like how we do not call people retards but rather special needs.
I saw a slight haze in the hotel bathroom this morning after I took a shower, have I discovered a new planet?

You will not find many, if any "round earthers" who are offended by somebody who thinks the earth is flat calling them anything at all...let alone "round earthers".

It is the stupidity of the flat earth theory that is offensive.

Most people have never thought about the question.

Ask an acquaintance if they believe the earth to be round or flat. Typically, they'll inform you that it's a fact, not a matter of belief.

Then, you say, "Oh right. I didn't know! When did they prove that then...?"

Endure some vague comments about space adventures, sailing around the world, people not trusting what they are told... etc.

Realise how little most people have thought about anything they/everyone know.

It's fun. I do it frequently.

Edit: People like this are the majority by a far margin.

That is because it is a stupid question.

Did you realize you were spending all of that time responding with complete and utter bullshit?
