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.”
McDaniel has not been the only institute offering courses into Flat Earth theories as the University of Washington and the University of New York at Stony Brook have made courses available.
