Flat Earthers. Where to begin with them eh? They’re obviously some of the dumbest people on the planet, but how can you communicate this to them as they’re so stubborn and idiotic that they just won’t listen to anything anyone else has to say, especially if it’s backed up with actual science.

Some guys over at Reddit have had the ultimate breakthrough idea of how to finally get them to shut up once and for all though: create a reality TV show based around them finding the edge of the world. This would obviously keep them going forever and so out of everyone else’s face with their dumb opinions OR could possibly lead to them finding it and hopefully falling off the edge. OK that isn’t going to happen but you know what I mean.
Here are a couple of choice quotes from the thread:
brssnj45: I recently met a flat earther. They think you can’t reach the edge of the world as it’s no-zoned by a giant ice wall So the idea is that there’s a gap in the ring you can pass through, but it’s being guarded by the military at the South pole, and absolutely no one is allowed past that point.
Thus what we think is our planet is more like Attack on Titan, and this giant ring is a wall we don’t know about and can’t go past.
Knut_Sunbeams: I got banned from their sub for laughing at them. Their mentality seems to be that even if they were taken to space and shown the Earth as the sphere it is they still wouldn’t believe it so they ‘challenge’ the ideas of so called intellectuals.
Personally if you’re going to deny science in such a stupid f*cking way and spout conspiracy theories about NASA you should be banned from using anything made possible by science. Have these morons living in huts with zero access to technology.
Both of those ideas sound like interesting variations on a them: ‘Flat Earthers Attack Impassable Military Checkpoint’ would be a bit like Takeshi’s Castle and ‘Flat Earthers Have Zero Access To Technology’ would be a bit like Lost or Survivor, only with stupider people. Somebody make these because I’m sure they would be absolute ratings killers?
