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...

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.
