One hundred proofs the Earth is not a Globe.

The Flat Earth Society is an organization that seeks to further the belief that the Earth is flat rather than a sphere. The modern organization was founded by Englishman Samuel Shenton in 1956.

Some actual headlines from Flat Earth News during the '70s and early '80s:
  • "Sun Is a Light 32 Miles Across"
  • "Galileo Was a Liar"
  • "Nikita Krushchev Father of NASA"
  • "The Earth Is Not a Ball; Gravity Does Not Exist"
  • "The Earth Has No Motion"
  • "Science Insults Your Intelligence"
  • "World IS Flat, and That's That"
  • "Australia Not Down Under"
  • "Whole World Deceived Except the Very Elect"

The most recent world model propagated by the Flat Earth Society holds that humans live on a disc, with the North Pole at its center and a 45 mt high wall of ice at the outer edge. The resulting map resembles the symbol of the United Nations, used as evidence for their position.

  1. Der Jahresbericht zur politischen Kriminalität ist erschreckend. Die zunehmende Gewalt gegen Andersdenkende ist auch ein Angriff auf den öffentlichen Raum und unterschiedliche Lebensstile. Die Ablehnung aller rechtsradikalen Gewalt ist einhellig! Bei linksradikaler Gewalt ist das noch anders!!

  2. There is just one thing I can promise you about the outer-space program - your tax-dollar will go further.
