I'm curious how whether or not the earth was round or flat would affect their lives in any way... even if they were "right", the whole "movement" just seems like someone with too much time on their hands trying to "win" an argument about whether or not Darth Vader could kill Captain Picard...

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

The only thing flat earthers have to fear is sphere itself..

I am starting to believe that flat earthers are just very good trolls who convinced certain scientific minded people to believe there are actually people who think the world is flat.

Its freaking Hilarious to see Flat Earthers reject "science" but will conduct their own "experiments" to prove the earth is flat.

What if the they are so highly developed that they see think and hear in four or more dimensions and therefore, to them, a sphere is flat. And they try to make the rest of us understand but we are so three dimensional that we can't understand.

Hmm... if that is so, then they should have an advantage in their arguments given that we, as three dimensional creatures, are forced by our very natures to observe time in a linear progression. We would be susceptible to logical progression. Clearly, human history argues against that so I am going with this: They are TNLP high.

Ha ha. Way out of my league anyway. I'm pretty much a two dimensional guy.

We all do things in 3 and a half dimensions ( time only goes in one direction). There was a video on youtube of a supposedly 8 dimensional object, but it was bogus.
