Has anyone seen this documentary?

My head almost exploded from the pain these dummies caused me.

Flat earth people?
Howard Stern sent a producer to one of their conventions and the report was hilarious and scary all at the same time. Heard it last week or the week before.
These are religious zealots. Some very smart people actually believe it and have scripture to back it up.
I had no idea this was religion driven. Christian religion driven.

No mention of religion in the documentary.

If you don’t think the earth is flat, you have never been to Saskatchewan.

I know of a woman who circumnavigated Antartica single handedly on her sailboat. And she lost her mast at one point and managed to borrow enough diesel fuel from a Korean fishing boat to finish her trip by motoring to New Zealand. So much for a flat earth.

Some base their flat earth beliefs on religion and some don't. Flat earthers only seem to be able to agree on one thing: that earth is not a sphere. Other than that there are myriad conflicting and contradictory theories within the community.

I never really thought or knew there was a flat earth movement. It just happened to be a part of Sterns show several days ago,

The producer (one of Sterns guys) did mini interviews with any people they could find at the convention.
This group or just the ones they interviewed had a religious reason for their thinking. Using bible quotes as ammo.
Like I said. I had no idea these people even existed in groups. Individual dummy's but not organized groups.

They'll claim the windows distort the image.

Noteworthy: Flat Earthers agree that the sun, moon, and all the other planets are spherical, only the Earth is flat.

I thought the whole thing was a big joke maybe making fun of climate change crazies.
