"In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the People.” ? Eugene V. Debs, Voices of a People’s History of the United States
Thank you for taking the time to go through this FAQ. It was created in light of the realization that for someone with a “round-Earth” (RE) background, the FE theory would appear at first glance to have some glaring holes. This thread is designed to answer some of the questions that many Round Earthers raise when they first arrive. Please read it all, especially the first section (this post), as it will help you to find your feet here at The Flat Earth Society, as well as making debate and discussion better and more njoyable for everyone.
So what if the earth really is the center of the universe? What if the Sun revolves around the earth? What if the UN flag shows the real picture of this planet we’re living on? If this is the mother of all psyOps, are its purposes the same as all the small ones? That is, fear and money?
Why aren’t our children taught our human history, that is to say that for thousands of years we thought the earth was flat, and it’s only recently that this thinking changed? Why isn’t it common knowledge that Copernicus’ model was adopted by the newly formed Church of England, and made the official position?
Why are the most monumental moments in our history, when great change occurred, glossed over in our schools as single lines in textbooks? I believe the reason is that fresh, unadulterated minds might come to different conclusions if allowed to form on their own. It’s hard to think in a mental
On the map of the UN, does anyone see where Antarctica went to? That’s another can of worms that needs flushing out.
Just look at the links below, to see what our minds are being bombarded with when it comes to space questions: all nonsense.

There is no such thing as an independent press in America, unless it is out in the country towns. You are all slaves. You know it, and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to express an honest opinion. If you express it you know beforehand that it will not appear in print. I am paid l50 dol. per week for keeping honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for doing similar things. If I should allow honest opinions to be printed in one issue of my paper, like Othello, my occupation would be gone. The business of a leading journalist is to distort the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread, or his salary. You know this, and I know it, and what foolery to be toasting an ” independent press.” We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks. They pull the string and we dance. Our time, our talent, our possibilities are the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.
