Hi there,

Question for RE-ers... I'm curious about what motivates you to contribute here?

Personally, before joining this forum I would have dismissed FET as complete nonsense without any kind of consideration, but I find it fascinating the extent to which arguments are put forward and rebutted by people on either side.

Now I'm addicted to this forum just for the debate! I'm learning a lot.

How about you?

I have a buddy in Montana (the home of weird) who has a friend that is a FEer.  I was shocked, dismayed and appalled, that can't be possible, can it?  Well, a quick google later and here I am. To me, it's as a thought exercise.   It's interesting to rethink about stuff that you take for granted.  I also found out there are some very interesting people here.  Deep thinkers no matter what you think about what they think (I think?).   Also very entertaining. 

The same buddy got involved in a pyramid scheme maybe 10 years ago and I googled it and found a site full of people arguing over Amway and other multi-level marketing schemes, devil or angel kind of stuff.  Why I bothered I have no idea but to this day I still exchange emails with 3 of those guys.  One in Sweden, one in the UK and one in California.

1.   an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.

One day someone came to me and said, "Dude, there are still people who believe the earth is flat!" I said, "No way, that's ridiculous!" Only illiterate fools would believe the earth is flat. He said, "Oh no! They have theories and explanations for all of it! They are actually smart, thoughtful people."

So, I started researching it to find out how it is possible someone could actually believe the earth is flat, and I stumbled onto this site. I've been learning about all kinds of ideas that I've never discussed before, so that has been really great. I am a bit addicted to this site for the time being, but I'm sure it will fizz out after some time. I am starting to notice some disturbing trends in these forums. I would like to see more topics started by FEers, so we can all hopefully have some new/fresh topics to discuss.

The disturbing trends of the abundance of demonic forces that post all day and night? FE'ers aren't going to waste our time posting to interact with these entities. We just giggle and know the end score, dungeons and dragons ! Feeling Hot Hot Hot

It's flat, I know it and will help you realize it. Read Genesis for a start.
What kind of person would devote endless hours posting scientific facts trying to correct the few retards who believe in the FE? I slay shitty little demons.

The Earth being a globe is a concept I have taken for granted my entire life. It's not something I've ever thought to question.

I came across a tv morning chat show interview on YouTube one day, with three flat Earthers, and realizing they weren't joking or punking the show's hosts, thought I might look into this a little bit.

I've since been questioning both the flat Earth concept and the spherical Earth concept. Without talking about anything I've already read or watched, at some point I'll pass on some simple observations I've made with my own eyes.

I plan on being on this forum, one or two weeks tops.
