A group of people who believe that the earth is flat are usually referred as “Flat Earthers”. Despite there is no scientific proof that the earth is flash there are still people out there who believe it. Most of them come around at some point and accept that the earth is not flat just like in the discussion we have gathered below. It’s pretty interesting to see why people gave up that conspiracy theory and accepted the truth. You can read the whole discussion on  Reddit.

Please keep in mind that our position is not that the earth is round. We just agree that there is not evidence that it is in fact flat.

1. The spherical trigonometry

Here is a good example of mathematically proving that the earth is in fact round.

2. The GPS

This is a pure example of logic. The example in the post above was pretty obvious. When his friend thought about it he accepted that the earth is not flat.

3. The evidence

This person is stating that people who believe that the earth is flat don’t really care about evidence. They do believe that the is a huge ice wall around the curve of the earth that actually keeps the water from going over the edge.

4. Seeing is believing

Yet, here is another example of a person who believed that the earth is flat until he saw a globe. I guess that the teacher explained very well that there is actually evidence that the earth is in fact round.

5. The stars

This person realized that there is no way to observe the star patterns if the earth is flat.

6. The cats

I am not too sure if this is for real or not, but yes, it sounds reasonable. We all know that cats love to push things off the table or something else. They do it just for fun and if the earth was flat they would for sure push something off the edge by know.

7. The weather

This person explain to a UFC professional that we have summer and winter, because the earth is round. He was not too sure if he made him accept the prove, but he definitely paused and thought for a moment.

8. The experiments

This person made a wise choice and decided to google evidence on if the earth is flat or round. He quickly found some experiments that everybody can do at home which prove the earth is a sphere.

9. Australia

A group of people decided to do a laser test over water. When the test proved that the earth was round everybody was super upset. After that they finally accepted that the earth is not flat.

Since this guy studied math in college decided to try if he can prove mathematically that the Earth is flat. Well, he came around after he failed to do so.

15. The computer simulation

If the earth was not round the stars would definitely move different. This guy saw a computer simulation and since it was pretty different of how the stars move in reality he decided to come around and accept the the earth is round.

16. The globe

After spending some time to give a good lesson to his neighbours. After about an hour one of the kid’s father asked if we were in the outside or the inside of the globe. I really hope that it was just a brain fart or some kind of joke. Well, anyway the kids and the father all accepted that the earth is in fact round.
