    As 2020 draws closer there is one question on the tip of everyone's tongue...

    Should Religiousforums.com have a "Flat Earth DIR"?

    Ok, maybe not everybody's tongue, but I figured this might actually be an interesting subject to debate. We are now living in time where truth, evidence and scientific knowledge are regularly being questioned if not flat out denied. We have a vast range of beliefs on the forum and some members do contradict scientific consensus on a range of issues. So I am curious in wondering if there are any flat-earthers on the forum?

    Please accept my apologies as I indulge the worst aspect of that vast underground conspiracy of post-modern leftists and cultural marxists to bring down the west with nonesense and feel sympathy for the "oppressed" and "marginalised" flat earthers under the foot of "Big Science" at NASA. I'm sure there will be a Jordan Peterson video rebutting this shortly... :D

    Are there enough people? Sounds like it could be one of those quiet areas.

    It would be like having an Amish dir. ;0)

    How could I use a flat-earth-DIR if I didn't believe in a flat earth?

    That makes no sense as DIRs aren't the place to debate in the first place.

    Well, you could ask polite questions. Nothing else.

    Correct.

    I meant debate in this thread rather than in such a DIR itself.

    That's what I'm trying to find out. And here's a link to the Amish DIR. I thought everyone knew about that. :D

    Why should RF give such a blatantly false idea of crap pseudo science a board to discuss an individual religion? Why should they get to use RF to shield their non-sense from criticism?

    We used to have some Amish members years ago (please no jokes, they have schismed and divided and some are more open to using modern technology and conveniences).

    I think we need a Fat Earth DIR. The Earth is too fat.
