The simplest is by relying on ones own senses to discern the true nature of the world around us. The world looks flat, the bottoms of clouds are flat, the movement of the Sun ; these are all examples of your senses telling you that we do not live on a spherical heliocentric world.
This is using what's called an empirical approach, or an approach that relies on information from your senses. Alternatively, when using Descartes' method of Cartesian doubt to skeptically view the world around us, one quickly finds that the notion of a spherical world is the theory which has the burden of proof and not Flat Earth Theory. In short, this was an experiment performed many times on a six-mile stretch of water that proved the surface of the water to be flat.
It did not conform to the curvature of the Earth that Round Earth proponents teach. Many other experiments demonstrating the lack of curvature in the Earth may be found in Earth Not a Globe by Samuel Rowbotham , as well as in the Experimental Evidence section of this Wiki.
The Flat Earth Theory is neither officially nor unofficially associated with any religion. Throughout the ages various religious institutions have championed a Flat Earth model for the world.
Unfortunately this leaves us with the vestigial thought that Flat Earth theory and religions are symbiotic. They are not, even though many religions today, both mainstream and otherwise, still teach its followers that the world is flat. While they are not incorrect, believing in a Flat Earth isn't contingent upon believing in a deity or being a part of any religion.
Based on conclusions derived from the Bedford Level experiment , Rowbotham published a pamphlet Zetetic Astronomy. He later expanded this into the book Earth Not a Globe , proposing the Earth is a flat disc centred at the North Pole and bounded along its southern edge by a wall of ice, Antarctica.
Rowbotham and followers like William Carpenter gained attention by successful use of pseudoscience in public debates with leading scientists such as Alfred Russel Wallace. After Rowbotham's death, Lady Elizabeth Blount established a Universal Zetetic Society, whose objective was "the propagation of knowledge related to Natural Cosmogony in confirmation of the Holy Scriptures, based on practical scientific investigation". The society published a magazine, The Earth Not a Globe Review , and remained active well into the early 20th century.
In , Shenton persuaded Ellis Hillman , a Polytechnic of East London lecturer, to become president of the Flat Earth Society; but there is little evidence of any activity on his part until after Shenton's death, when he added most of Shenton's library to the archives of the Science Fiction Foundation he helped to establish.
Johnson, Shenton died in Charles K. Over the next three decades, under his leadership, the Flat Earth Society grew to a reported 3, members. Johnson issued many publications and handled all membership applications.
The most famous publication was Flat Earth News, a quarterly, four-page tabloid. Much of the society's literature in its early days focused on interpreting the Bible to mean that the Earth is flat, although they did try to offer scientific explanations and evidence. Eugenie Scott called the group an example of "extreme Biblical-literalist theology: The earth is flat because the Bible says it is flat, regardless of what science tells us".
According to Charles K. Johnson, the membership of the group rose to 3, under his leadership, but began to decline after a fire at his house in which destroyed all of the records and contacts of the society's members. Johnson's wife, who helped manage the membership database, died shortly thereafter. Johnson himself died on 19 March In , Daniel Shenton not related to Samuel  resurrected the Flat Earth Society, basing it around a web-based discussion forum.
In , part of this society broke away to form a new web-based group also featuring a forum and wiki. Calling themselves "planoterrestrialists",  their aims were quite different from other flat Earth societies.
They claimed a prevailing problem of the new technological age was the willingness of people to accept theories "on blind faith and to reject the evidence of their own senses. Ferrari was interviewed as an "expert" in the flat Earth mockumentary In Search of the Edge by Pancake Productions a reference to the expression "as flat as a pancake".
In Italy there are no centralized societies on flat Earth. However, since the s, small groups of conspiracy theorists, who carry out meetings, started to emerge and to spread flat Earth theories.Funny Flat Earth Society T-Shirt, Tank Top, Long Sleeve, Sweatshirt, Hoodie, Well That Sucks Astronaut Moon Conspiracy Theory It's Flat Bro PixelCynic.
