    With the message board name that you have, I am surprised that you needed to ask that question.

    I am not aware if I know any Flat Earthers but I wonder if many/most are simply trolling.
    I cannot comprehend how a sane, functioning human can be so ignorant.

    Yeah, I suspect many . . . most . . . almost all - just like to get a rise out of the rest of us. If I actually met one, I would totally agree with him (have to believe most are males), just to have that conversation, which would be much more fun than trying to argue with them. I might ask some probing questions, playing the innocent, to see what their answers were.
    But, as I mentioned before, the REAL ones are most assuredly suffering from a mental disorder that forbids them from believing the obvious.

    when I was a kid it was impossible to graduate HS without knowing what north, south east and west meant and understanding the location of every state in the union.

    Today I have met kids out of HS in their 20s, in NewEngland and they think New York City is north of them. We are regressing.

    I am continually appalled by the apparent ignorance of "man in the street" interviewees on geography, history and even current events and wonder if they were deliberately selected for TV appearance/entertainment

    DAYUM! Why didn't I think of that?! <:-D

    And if the Earth (or any other planet, planetoid or moon, for that matter) were flat, why doesn't the water from the oceans fall off the edge and into space?

    You think there's a dragon waiting for us if we dig really deep?

    I wonder if there really is a layer of diamond deep in the Earth.

    I was thinking along the lines of a stretched flat strip, or 2 connected flat strips, with a flat disc in between the strips.

    I believe/think the "rings" are actually comprised of jillions of small objects that for some reason have coalesced into concentric orbiting rings... not that explains anything

    Oh, I thought they explained that perfectly.. Disc Earth is encircled by the Antartica ice mountain range, like a big saucer..
    The disc must be some 70,000 feet thick to accommodate the deepest ocean trenches and highest mountains.
    They are a little vague as to the characteristics of the bottom of the saucer.. or what it rests on..and a few other details.
