The Landover Baptist site is a parody site. They aren't serious, don't worry! (And I'm going to move your thread, since I don't think there will be much debating).

Oh thank god...

I love that site!

Also, what does it say about reality when parody and truth become almost indistinguishable?

Semicharmed 04-04-2011 08:17 PM

Yes, Landover Baptist is a parody site. And it's awesome.

However...

The REAL group of people who think Earth is flat are part of the Flat Earth Society.

I'm pretty sure they're serious. (I'd love to be wrong about that, because being right is utterly terrifying.)

According to wikipedia, the Flat Earth Society is very real. Eek!

A variant of the lunacy, complete with a Christian twist: http://www.fixedearth.com/

Of course it's flat, or else we'd all just roll off into space. DUH, BASIC SCIENCE ARE YOU PEOPLE STUPID?

Compare the credits of Chris Morris' Brass Eye satire with Sky News current credits. Same credits with a different colour tone.

i think the earth is flat society probably has a lot of overlap with the society of people who want holes drilled in their heads, the trepanners. http://www.trepan.com/ . unfortunately, this movement appears to be losing steam.

Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing.

Oh, OK, there is still hope in the world. XD

But... but if we don't have holes drilled in our heads... how will we enter the Matrix?

Semicharmed 04-13-2011 06:08 PM

We're already IN the Matrix. Duh.

It's not very flat here, here, here, or here. That's just me, though.

The earth IS flat... so sad that the rest of you have been brainwashed.

Yeah. Further proof that if you advertise something enough, no matter how ridiculous, people will buy into it

Very true. I know of a charlatan whose advertising has made people to believe that ingesting bleach can cure HIV/AIDS, Hep B and most cancers...
