There are no scientists/engineers/physicists/astronomers who are flat earthers

This feels like a fantastic generalization.  What evidence do you have to support this claim?

What evidence do you have that there are any ?

I don't recall making a claim... surely you can back your claim up with evidence.

I haven't seen any evidence that there were some flat earth scientists, engineers, physicists, astronomers, et cetera, et cetera and so forth.........So-o-o-o-o-o-o..........I just assumed there weren't any........And surely if there was a flat earth cartographer, we would have seen an ACCURATE flat earth map by now.

How are any aspiring Flat Earth Cartographers supposed to explore the world without the support of the public to fund its ventures like they do for other fields?

I think if those within the flat earth community were making discoveries that lead to changes in engineering, navigation, and science there would be funding.  There is no funding because presently there is only discourse about how deceptive every authoritative agency is.

Why are you making excuses?  Find private donators.  There are wealthy people who recently have made comments supporting the FE idea, no doubt there are others who have no made public comments.  Stop hiding and actually do something!

Crowd-fund it, if people were willing to pledge £87,000 to build Minas Tirith in England and this community is growing as much as Pinky & the Brain have been crowing, then it should be a breeze.
Just to be clear, you are all terrific, but everything you say is exactly what a moron would say.

Getting back to the original subject, I would think that the very first thing that the Flat Earth Society should do would be to produce an accurate flat earth map of the entire flat earth, reasonably accutrate in all areas.

Or.........Here is a radical idea for The Flat Earth Society.:
Just admit that the fact is that the earth IS a globe and let TFES be a society for study and for exchange of ideas on how things would have to be if the earth WAS flat.

If "The Flat Earth Movement" is growing as enormously and rapidly as has been suggested, surely there should be a multitude of persons eager and willing to freely donate their money , time, energy and effort in its behalf ?

TFES could be something like The National Geographic Society....
The National Planographic Society  ?

I don't know why you don't just admit to making a baseless generalization.  I mean, really, you actually use the word "assumed" to describe what you were doing in your very attempt at justifying it.
