    I mean, I could talk about this. But I'll let someone else.

    If I've learned anything, it's to respond to these questions like this - for those familiar with the scene:

    Ironically many flat Earthers think that is a valid argument. They cannot seem to understand the simple concept of "down".

    This is one of those occasions where my irony detection ability breaks down. On the one hand, nobody could possibly be that stupid. On the other hand, some people absolutely are that stupid.

    And flat earther's think gravity isn't a pull or force rather a push from above.

    This level of stupidity ranks right up there with the theory of life creating itself from lightening striking some wet sand!

    I can almost see how this could be a serious topic in this forum and as it relates to other things, but I'll just watch for a while I think. My wife wants me to come an massage her feet.:)

    Well, gravity is indeed "just a theory".
    It's been revised over centuries.
    Who's to say that the latest theory
    is the ultimately true one? No one.

    Paraphrasing George Box...
    All theories are wrong, but some are useful.

    I get why folk want to laugh at flat earthers. Im not a flat earther but I think we shouldnt laugh at them. That'll only make them cling harder to their belief the earth is flat and continue to deny science. It'd be better to educate. I will say gravity is what causes the stream to flow to its lowest point.

    And what purpose does it serve in this case that would help a flat earther let go of their belief the earth is flat?

    But plenty of people enjoy trolling. Some enjoy taking on absurd points of view, just to be contrarian. I once read an article on the subject, illustrated in fact by considering the phenomenon of flat earthers.

    First of checked if this is thread was in the joke section before posting a funny reply. No, not jokes, someone is serious so how about they jump out of a 3rd floor window and tell me gravity is not strong enough.
