It's a Mad Mad Mad … World

Phil Plait has a posting concerning a major TV personality who doesn’t know whether the Earth is flat.

Phil hit it hard, but I’ll reiterate one of his points. It is just not possible to exist in an industrialized country in the 21st century and not know that the Earth is a ball. People who espouse a belief in flath-earthism or, as this person did, claim ignorance of the matter, are not qualified to breathe.

    Oh My God. HOW does one not have any concept that the earth is round? Seriously…wasn’t there that whole thing with Columbus falling off the edge that we all learned in 4th grade? Or how about the fact that there are freaking PHOTOS of the earth showing it as a round ball. Blue Marble anyone? I am simply horrified.

    “The earth’s not a ball, it’s merely round. A flat disc”
