Why do they believe it?

Flat Earthers – people who believe, contrary to all the evidence that currently exists, that the earth is flat. “But there are pictures” you might say. They’ll tell you they’re fakes, doctored photos, photoshopped images because… well, they are. The Blue Marble, for instance, is one of the most famous images of our earth and…

Stop fighting, there is no war.

I am a firm believer in seeing all sides of an issue. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been on the wrong side of self righteousness and misplaced indignation a time or two…. or ten. When I’m wrong, however, I own it and that’s fine. Embarrassment is a small price to pay to be right or…
