    I think we should organise a cycle ride to the edge.

    The first task is to find the centre of the world , then we can work out where the edge is
    I'd take a guess that it must be somewhere in the Bible belt of the USA, which means as China is as far as you can get from the USA, the edge of the world must be close to Hong Kong ,

    Or has someone got a better idea ?

    I've just been sent a map !
    The world really is flat!
    I think we may have to re-plan the cycle ride idea, it looks like we have to go to the south pole

    We could knock a steel pin in the centre, attach a bit of line so we can go round in ever decreasing circles?? H&S + risk assessed

    Perhaps they could charter an aeroplane ( with a flatness pilot) to test their theory - though NASA would probably use smoke and mirrors to trick them into going round and round ....

    If you listen to some people on here they would tell you that the centre of everything is London.

    I know, don't laugh too loud.

    If the Earth was flat would it not be dark all the time or light all the time. Or does the Sun have a sun shade so it can only be seen in certain places at any one time?

    Yebbut.....the Sun goes around the world, so that explains night and day.

    Sir Patrick Moore originally joined the Flat Earth Society as he thought it was a bit of tomfoolery, which appealed to his sense of humour. Apparently he soon left when he realised they were serious!

    So explain how the Sun going round a flat Earth works in terms of day and night in different parts of the world.

    It's all to do with the gullibility factor.

    So it is like the X Factor but with no heavenly music?
