    I think it's the flat-earthers who are defiant.

    Others believe that the Universe is 4000 years old. Some people just can't be helped.

    They're no more deluded than everyone else.

    We're all living in a computer simulation. There is no earth, flat or round.

    Radio 5 covered this earlier with an interview with the president of the Flat Earth Society, which I was amazed to find out really exists. Apparently the space missions were all a hoax and the Russians and US have colluded since about 1960 to keep the secret that the earth really is flat. Also, NASA have people guarding the 'edge of the world' to make sure no one ever finds out about it's flatness. Well you live and learn :wacko:!

    I actually heard this the other day from a customer, or similar anyway. He told me ("and let me give you a bit of education young man" he said), the Earth is 44300 years old. We know this because God created the Earth in six days and he rested on the seventh. A day to God is 7000 years - we know that, it says so in the Bible, the Koran, everywhere - so it took him 42000 of our years and he's still resting. It's all there "

    I was just utterly flabbergasted and a bit flummoxed.

    If the earth really was spherical it would be really easy for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere to cycle due south as we'd be all going downhill and really difficult to cycle due North as we'd be going uphill but as that doesn't appear to be the case I conclude the earth must be a sort of concave shape with my house at the lowest part as all roads from here seem to go uphill:wacko:

    I can now rest easy knowing that the planet is being guarded and that i am not going to fall off the edge because it's being guarded.

    I know I posted this the other day, but it seems to fit here too.
