At least, according to these people:

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).

I love that site!

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

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!

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.

In this grand illusion of entitlement to life / Our 'need' is a mask for our greed and it's not right /
We are executioners who parade ourselves as kings / As selfish and deluded as the blood-bathed Bathory. ~Kingdom, 'Bathory' xVx

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.

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

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

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...
