When people make up their minds that the world is run by vast conspiracies, they are automatically shut to all other evidence . . . whether they be flat earthers, Holocaust deniers, moon landing debunkers, or 9/11 conspiracy geeks.

I think there's a deeper issue at hand here... The fact these people think so many would lie about something so obviously true is amazing.
There is a thin line between instinct for survival and paranoia. Unfortunately a vast amount of people can't seem to separate the two. True paranoia can be very detrimental; it can destroy individuals and even whole families (by the affected person). The worst part is that paranoia is often contagious.

Their theories of gravity must be quite interesting.  Gravity pulls everything towards the center of whatever object you're on, which works out just fine on a sphere shaped planet.  But on a disk, once you got away from the center of it, gravity would be pulling sideways.  Of course, that would create a problem with things like oceans, which would tend to collect in the center of the disk.  You'd have to have a long cylinder-shaped planet with us living on one of the flat ends for it to work.  And still you'd be standing fairly crooked if you went to, say, Argentina.

Finding the edge of the earth is easy.  You'll find it after fighting off a cyclops, avoiding sirens, dodging an evil witch who will turn your crew into pigs and finally sailing past Scylla and Charybdis.  Here is a pic from one of my vacations in that area.

Good times, good times...

Even if we don't go into discussions of physics or astronomy or geology, things like compass bearings, weather, day and night, and seasons wouldn't work on a disc. Neither would climate. How is this thing cold in the middle and at the edge, but hot in between? Why does the night sky look different from different parts of it?

Maybe climate is an elaborate hoax, and people who travel to other latitudes are brainwashed into thinking the weather is different there. It's a similar process to when people are knocked out on trips across the southern hemisphere, to hide the unusual length of the trip.

The thing I still don't understand is the why. Assuming a secret that big could be kept from all but a few people, who must be extremely intelligent to have deduced its existence with no actual evidence, what purpose would the deception serve? What would make it worth the trillions of dollars, the international cooperation and the unheard-of level of secrecy needed to pull it off?

I have a theory. Maybe the people who live on the other side of the disc want to remain hidden. This would be an alien race who built the disc, which admittedly could not have formed naturally. They equipped it with artificial gravity, time distortion fields, a dome with adjustable refractive properties to control day and night, and a vast network of heat pumps to transfer heat from the edge and the middle to the area in between. They've infiltrated the highest levels of government, business and academia in all countries. They pump fossil fuels from the other side to our oil wells, and likewise operate the equipment that runs our volcanoes, earthquakes, weather. They also planted fossils and geological formations to fool us. You will note that the creationists have also managed to piece together part of the puzzle. The reason is because these aliens want to study us in secret, and have been doing so for thousands of years. For what purpose? Only they know, and possibly the Scientologists.

Amazing what you can come up with if you start with a crazy assumption.

Wow, well it would make an awesome movie...

Well, you can't bring a logical argument to someone who is completely illogical.

That's kind of like asking if 9/11 REALLY happened: were you there?  Have you had direct contact with someone who saw it?  Just because there are images on TV do not mean it necessarily happened right?  'Tell it to the families of the dead' you may say, but do you know any of them?   Buggedout  Disinformation is a crazy thing...

For all I know all you people on this website are fakes, just robotic algorithm's programmed to make me think there's more out there... 

And I'm sure there are people out there who think like all of this... crazies!!!

Or the Freemasons. Can't rule them out. Elaborate, yet entirely pointless conspiracies are all around us. Buggedout
