I think the people that first started it were just fucking around but there is no shortage of stupid people so it wasn't long before actual believers started to surface.Let's say that their opinion is true and that the world is flat...why? Why would the powerful elite want to lie about the shape of the earth? What different does it make to them and how does it keep their grip on the world tighter? It's a ludicrous theory anyway, but I can't understand why they think that there's power and control to be gained in lying about something that's inconsequential.
Very odd people.
They use the lie to drive up oil prices by claiming the tankers require extra time and fuel to travel over a rounded surface.Why would the powerful elite want to lie about the shape of the earth? What different does it make to them and how does it keep their grip on the world tighter?
Hell, even the smoothest manmade round object, not matter how much care is taken in it's production is still not perfectly round and has a rough surface if magnified enough times.Hmmmm... the facade begins to crack under scrutiny.
Aside from those that blow themselves up in the name of god that you defend?No one really believes this shit.
I mean, if you put a gun to their head and on a lie detector or whatever they'd admit they don't really believe it.
Exactly the same as religious people. No one really believes that shit.
