    The Earth is so large it's not immediately obvious that it is round but even thousands of years ago it was widely known that it was round. People living beside large bodies of water might have an advantage since they can observe ships disappearing over the horizon.

    Professed disbelief in factual opens their door to all science-based evidence

    being denied on the basis of public bias or foreign malice as an act of war.

    People who claim to read one book for scripture value need denial of science.

    Which is a fact that others can reproduce. Faith without it is a bias opinion

    Ben' Franklin, a N. America founding father, invented the Lightening Rod.

    Churchmen attempted to halt sale of that invention, saying, "It steals the just

    wrath of God." Purchase would begin denial of prayer for safety from all

    natural events attributed by Church faithful to their God. Show me a church

    today without protection from weather-produced lightening bolts.

    Three reasons.

    1. what they read in the Bible. Although the Bible never actually says the Earth is Flat.

    2. Very low IQ's

    3. attention seekers.

    They are goofs who probably also reject science.

    most of them are trolls, stating something they know to be false, for whatever strange reasons trolls do what they do.

    The rest are very deluded, or stupid or just trying for the publicity.
