Why would it be better if people knew that the earth was supposedly flat?

In the end, FE is the minority against RE for the sheer fact that RE can be explained and demonstrated with a scale model and physics.
So why would anyone try and hide flat earth or debate against it if it really was real?

What benefit would be gained from doing such a thing? Like it seems like a massive waste of taxpayer money and government time.

So why do people think that the government cares so badly that the average joe thinks the earth is round when it is flat?

It seems close to ridiculous to believe that they would.

It might be my little sheep mind being a little bit of a sheeple but it sounds like the earth is round and someone said I think that the outdated ideas of philosophers and ancient astronomers and biblical passages are true so I'm gonna make a club.

But it might just be the government putting chemicals in the water, making the earth round and the frogs gay

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Philosophy of Science and Pseudoscience

So, for the past 3 months, I've been studying the philosophy of science and how theories can be scientific and pseudoscientific. I have reason to believe that the flat earth theory is pseudoscientific because of a multitude of reasons, which I'm happy to explain if asked.

But this question goes out to the FE theorists who are going out and experimenting. Are your experiments trying to prove or disprove FE?

I've read a lot of articles now saying that believed sciences like psychology and even chiropractics are pseudoscientific because they are not sound/reliable in their evidence and conclusions.

Thanks and I look forward to reading all, if any, responses
