College student with questions
« on: February 25, 2020, 01:32:53 AM »
Hi there! I am a college student and I am currently in a class where I must write a paper about a movement and I chose The Flat Earth Society, the reason is because other than knowing that you guys think the world is flat I knew nothing else about your beliefs or why you thought this way. After lurking around your website for a few days I think I have some sort of grasp on why you believe what you do and I respect your right to your opinion but I have one question I would like to ask you guys so here it is.

If the world is flat, then why would the government lie about it? I don't mean to come off as condescending and I get that the government lies all the time, like with the MK Ultra program or the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but I am genuinely curious about what the government would have to gain from such a lie and why every government would agree to such a huge lie. I'm curious as to what kind of insight you guys can give me because I quite honestly don't know the answer and I hope you can shed some light on this for me

Thank you in advance for any help with this you guys can give me!
