Reddit will always answer your questions, regardless of what they might be, and we love browsing this vast space because of the variety of topics you could find. It seems that whatever you might need, the social platform will deliver. This is the case that the list below focuses on. We decided to see what redditors have to say about flat-earthers, and we were not disappointed. The topic is curious, as many people who previously thought the world was flat decided to share the things that made them realize it was not true. You can read the whole thread on Reddit.

1. The globe

Some people believe in the flat Earth theory from an early age, but this person managed to understand what things really look like thanks to a simple globe they saw as a toddler.

2. The map

Here is one very simple, but scientific way to explain the difference between the theory and our reality. Time is more or less the perfect proof that the Earth is not flat.

3. The experiments

Now, this is the kind of thing that we always thought about, and we have no certain answer. It makes perfect sense that an experiment dedicated to this would result in disproving the myth.

4. The interaction

This is one of the most unusual tweets ever, and we remember it like it was yesterday. It seems that this society has no intention of admitting anything, even when there is plenty of proof.

5. The ideology

Talking about not admitting anything even when there is proof, this post explains why that rarely happens. These people share more than just a belief, and quitting society would be hard for them.

6. The world

This is one very curious perspective of how one could view the world at an early age. The things people think about when they try to imagine how the world works are sometimes awesome.

7. The question

Well, this is one rather weird explanation, but we think that it makes sense. The thing we like about it the most is the fact that it is so honest we really see how and why people become members of this society.

8. The ex

This is one problem that most people who think the world is flat surely encounter soon or later. The thing about believing in such things is that your partner must believe in them, too.

9. The gas station

Trying to prove the Earth was flat has never been easier than this example. Of course, this post is nothing but pure sarcasm, but it still counts as a way to disprove the whole theory.

10. The internet 

Image Source: Reddit

It seems that some people would find it hard to stop believing in such a theory because they would do it in a blink of an eye when they see an experiment that completely disproves it.

11. The magnet 

Image Source: Reddit

Well, this is a post that hardly proves anything but we think that it aims to show that some people cannot be convinced of the most obvious of things. It is kind of sad to see someone who is deep into a conspiracy theory.

12. The God

Well, there is no telling just how many times one has tried to prove to a flat-earther that we live on a planet and not on a flat surface. Even if they see it from a far distance, they would still refuse to believe the obvious.

13. The husband

We are not entirely sure if there is a correlation between one’s political views and opinions and their beliefs in conspiracy theories. It does not make sense, but it can be valid in certain cases.

14. The turtles

Now, this is one of the best ways for someone to explain how they stopped believing in the flat Earth theory. It seems that there is some sarcasm involved here, but it sounds awesome nonetheless.

15. The horizon

This post probably has one of the best explanations of how someone could stop believing in this theory and realize that the Earth is not flat, and it never was, to begin with.

16. The sky

This is also a post that suggests some facts you cannot deny. They completely disprove the theory that the Earth was flat, and the simple physics related to it cannot be argued with.

17. The moon

This person seems to give zero tolerance for such theories, and there is nothing we could add to their logic. They were able to learn things the right way at an early age, and no conspiracy theory would make them change their mind.

18. The disorder 

Image Source: Reddit

Wow, this is one post that completely destroys the theory and we think it makes total sense. The thing we like the most about it is how it reminded us of the many videos where people try to prove the word is flat and end up disproving that.

19. The theory 

Image Source: Reddit

This is something that we have seen happen before, and we will surely continue to see it: some people out there never realize that there is such a society and that people are not joking about their idea of a flat Earth.

20. The age

Image Source: Reddit

This is one user’s personal opinion on this matter, but we would like to disagree. There is no telling how many people have come to the realization this theory is not plausible.

21. The belief 

Image Source: Reddit

This is a person who seems to think in a similar way to our own view of the whole matter. The thing about some flat Earth theory followers is that they are part of it because they get a whole lot of attention.

22. The friend 

Image Source: Reddit

Here is one of the funniest comments on this topic, and you can immediately see what makes it hilarious. This person decided to have some fun and use sarcasm to prove their point.

23. The joke 

Image Source: Reddit

This user finds it hard to believe that someone could actually believe in such things, and there is no telling just how many people wonder if the whole thing is serious or not.

24. The flight 

Image Source: Reddit

This is one of the posts that makes the most sense. It appears that even hard evidence, such as the one suggested above, is enough to convince even the biggest skeptic, but not all of them, apparently.

25. The student

Image Source: Reddit

This is what teaching is all about. Teachers are kind of wizards that have special powers. They can make any kid realize the truth about Earth and everything related to this matter.

26. The world 

Image Source: Reddit

Some people need more than just theoretical evidence to start believing Earth is not flat. In this case, a couple of long flights was what it took for one person to realize the truth.

27. The sister 

Image Source: Reddit

Now, this is one of the best comparisons ever. It perfectly describes what believing that the Earth is flat means. There are moments when we think all parents should buy their kids a globe.

28. The ice wall 

Image Source: Reddit

This is yet another example of everything that is wrong with this theory and the whole movement supporting it. s you can see, some people take it personally, too.

29. The common sense 

Image Source: Reddit

The post you see here suggests a different side to the theory, and we think we understand it. Still, this is not enough for us or anyone else to even consider believing in it.

30. The argument 

Image Source: Reddit

We are glad someone mentioned this, as this has always been one of our key arguments related to why the Earth is not flat in reality. It seems that nobody could gain anything from believing in such a thing.

31. The pun

Image Source: Reddit

There is no doubt that people need to take some things seriously, but there are also moments when a situation can be perfectly explained by a very clever pun. This is one such situation.

32. The original 

Image Source: Reddit

Well, this is the best joke we can quote after the pun we posted above. It seems that people who believe in the theory must consider the things cats would do if there was an edge. We are glad there isn’t.

33. The planet

Image Source: Reddit

Kids could easily fall for this idea because they have no clear concept of most things, so they are vulnerable to believes that end up being false. This is what this person admitted.

34. The episode 

Image Source: Reddit

We are sure that people are never going to stop asking silly questions or believe in even more ridiculous things, which is why we like the suggestion this person made.

35. The bubble 

Image Source: Reddit

This is one of the best posts on the matter, and you can see that there is no way to argue with this person.
