I watched this last weekend. I'll be honest, it was painful to watch. It's difficult to witness this level of self absorption and ignorance. The main guy, forgot his name as it has absolutely no relevance in my life, is clearly a complete idiot. His oddly attractive girlfriend perpetuates his madness. The other guy whom I'll refer to as the "Angry Flat Earth Guy" is hilarious. He's like Lord Helmet in Space Balls about the whole business.

I ended up watching the entire documentary not so much concerned about their bullshit ass theory but more so in a field study type scenario for human psychology. Those poor bastards simply need to feel connected to something even if it is finding a way to suck each others dicks around flat earth....."globe" I suppose.

I did find it funny that the experiments that they kept coming up with to prove themselves right were never conclusive and the one conversation at the convention with one guy stating something to the effect of "This needs to be kept quiet" had me rolling laughing.

We believe in science and think flat Earth theory is ridiculous but we did not vax our last daughter. The difference between the health of the first 3 at 15 months and our newest is so drastic itís crazy. Itís a hyped up money machine and most docs donít even know the hard statistics on vax and their effectiveness on humans. No. Debate here. Do the research yourself if you want but I donít want that crap in my kids bodies no way.

Exactly! I kept waiting for a smidge of some form of anything to scientifically prove.....well anything really. I lol'd hard at the comment that the main character made about how they were beating science.

I'll just leave this here.

More likely we live in a simulated world than a round planet

Dammit, now I remember his name. My subconscious had omitted it. I just remembered his shirts with "I am Mark Sargeant" on them. Would have been WAY funnier had he gone over to the Chive and got a Bill F'n Murray shirt. That guy seriously needs to take himself less serial. Serious lolz at the fact that "Angry Flat Earth Guy" and Mark Sargeants momma's basement dwelling ass hate each other over who invented "Flat Earth"

Just a thought; all of the planets of our solar system, are proven to be oval: except Earth. The difference; humans. Makes sense, doesn't it? The problem with my theory is Saturn, but it doesn't count.

I feel like I need to insert a video of a Joe "you ever smoke DMT" Rogan podcast in here.

Call me crazy but this is where I jump on the reality is nothing more than a shared hallucination train. After doing much reading on quantum mechanics and the science behind how our brains perceive information, I don't really trust or rely on much these days.

No, I believe the earth is round, and that we landed on both the moon and Mars.

Just once. I wouldn't say they landed on it as much as they did crashed into it.

I have not watched this and I am not on either side. But according to hardcore flat earthers that I have seen on IG, they despise this "documentary" and ridicule it just as much as you all do.

So you're kind of wishy washy on whether the earth is round'ish?
