Title: Expository Paper **HELP NEEDED**
Post by: flat_earth_fanboi on September 17, 2018, 03:12:13 PM
I am a high school student researching the science and beliefs of the flat earth theory for a paper, but I need some good informational sources to cite for my paper. Would really appreciate the help to inform my peers and teacher!

I would suggest starting with the wiki and FAQ.

If you have specific questions that aren't covered there, then feel free to ask.

You'll especially want to look at the literature page in the wiki https://wiki.tfes.org/Flat_Earth_Literature and in particular for sure the first work listed in it "Earth, Not a Globe" by Samuel Birley Rowbotham. It would be a primary source for a paper or similar. While no longer 100% consistent with the current hypothesis, it's a prominent starting point.

So, am I able to create an essay (using all the sources linked) for my own personal use?

Yup.
