It's no joke these people really think the world is flat.
I suppose it all depends on which dimension they see themselves living in, from our perspective as people the earth is pretty flat unless we have to
up a hill or down into a valley etc, more so at the ocean because of course we are pretty close to the ground but even there they can still see the
curve of the horizon on a clear day, when telescopes first came along for maritime use they could even see the sail's of ship's rising above the
horizon before there hull's were visible, must of had some pretty good eye'sight up in those crows nests but I guess not reading book's and watching
TV or computer screen's all day also helped even if there lives were pretty short and brutal for the most part.
But back to dimension, each person is the center of the universe as they perceive it.
There interpretation is based on AN interpretation of Biblical scripture or Koranic Writing's depending on there particular faith but is about a way
or thinking, of seeing the universe, we may be more accurate technically but just maybe they have a better priority as individual's and seeing the
earth in that way help's them to prioritize as they see correct.
Really though the earth is not round, just roundish, it is actually more a gnarly ball with dint's and protrusion's that is roughly semi spherical
but hey who even said that the scripture was really referring to just the earth, maybe the earth it meant was the universe as an entirety and then we
come to BRAIN Theory, the idea the universe is a membrane which also plays into string theory which is of course not so much a replacement for super
gravity theory but a derivative and alternative to it, both those all encompassing theory's still have there strong point's in different area's
indicating neither is really totally correct but hey maybe, just maybe the universe can actually NOT be modeled accurately in a mathematical theorem
and maybe it does not want to be, is reality even a fixed function of the universe, is our dimensional state even a static one?.
It is easy to think of them as Yahoo's and gone with the fairy's but in truth they are often just as intelligent as anyone else.
But they CHOOSE to see it that way and I suppose they have the right to do so, and for them it is round so they live on a different planet that just
happen's to intersect our reality('s).
