You would think that in the twenty-first century, we wouldn’t need to make any arguments, let alone a religious argument against the flat earth, but we live in strange times.
There has been a resurgence of late in people professing a belief that the earth is flat. This belief joins a number of other conspiracy theories, and like them, appears impervious to any scientific proof. No matter how well-explained the science, how clear the evidence, or how much evidence there is, few flat earthers are dissuaded.
In a way, there is a religious fundamentalist quality to this globe-denialism, and it occurred to me that there is a quasi-religious foundation for people’s stubborn belief in a flat earth. I’m no scientist, but I do know religion, and so into the fray I jumped with a video entitled “A Religious Argument Against the Flat Earth.”
