Hello everybody. As you are aware, I drifted off for a while. Logging on to my page I was really gratified to see so many birthday wishes. My birthday is in June, so I guess that says a lot about the last time I was here for any significant time.
So here's the story. I was on YouTube and was watching a science video, and in the comment sections there was a brigade of these people who apparently believe the earth is flat. That was the beginning of a long spiral down a rabbit hole, which has admittedly been kind of fun, though frustrating. Fun, because I was curious to see why anybody would think there is evidence the earth is flat, and it has honed my science and thinking skills. Frustrating because the Flat earth community is a mix of conspiracy theorists and religious fundamentalists who seem to think preaching a flat earth is important to God. There is no convincing such people that what they believe can be any other way.
Anyhow. Thank you all for your warm consideration, and I hope you all enjoyed your holidays.
Hope to see you soon.
Edit: I made a video describing my feelings about flat earth.
