More young people may be buying into the “flat Earth” conspiracy theory, and one can’t help but wonder whether celebrity flat-Eather truthers are to blame.
A new study by YouGov published Monday reveals that only 66 percent of American 18 to 24-year-olds, a major chunk of the country’s millennials, firmly believe the Earth is round. The survey also shows that the younger respondents tended to be, the more likely they were to have doubts about the long-established fact of a globe-shaped Earth. For example, 76 percent of 25- to 24-year-olds surveyed reported they believe the Earth is round, while 82 percent of those in the 35-44 age range answered: “I have always believed the world is round.”
I have done my own surveys and estimate that about 11-14 million of the U.S. populace between the ages of 12-65 now believe that the earth is flat. (See my videos at the Flat Earth Survival Guide Channel on You Tube). I redo this survey quarterly and it seems to be growing at about 2% per quarter. I don’t think they can suppress this much longer. No wonder things are so messed up when people have been lied to in such an egregious manner.
RE: “I have done my own surveys and estimate that about 11-14 million of the U.S. populace between the ages of 12-65 now believe that the earth is flat.”
1) Who does their own surveys?
2) Who defines what kind of survey is done – is it credible, does if follow norms for conducting a survey (in the common vernacular of published surveys)?
3) Are survey results and methodology published for understanding and review?
4) Are these the kind of results/numbers credible surveys release?
5) Does anyone actually believe this could be done as claimed. Why?
I can, however, find the truth in this: “No wonder things are so messed up when people have been lied to in such an egregious manner.” – look in the mirror JCM!
Bonus Question: Does a survey of public opinion play a role in the actual reality and physical nature of our existence and that of Earth?
If flat earthers are so wrong, they wouldn’t need you or anyone else to discredit them. Kind of like how there aren’t any people out there ranting against the belief in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. If something is truly non-existent, no one needs to waste their energy fighting against it or caring at all about the people that believe in it. The simple fact of actual non-existence is it’s own proof and requires no one’s help to prove it. The fact that you love to keep coming back here to argue shows there’s something valid to make an argument against. However, you’re not going to convince anyone of anything. The truth is, once you go flat, you won’t go back.
