This website is for real, as is the group who owns it. That being said, I would like to state that this is, without a doubt, one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Ever.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold.

    They believe Australia doesn't exist.

    Not just Australia, Darky. Idaho and North Dakota too.

    I, for one, am relieved to hear the United States has 2 gigantic, gaping holes of void, both of which I have flown over/through. That's 2 less state capitals I need to remember. /sarcasm off

    The Springfield Effect is the name given to the phenomenon by which every place named Springfield is hard-linked in hyperspace to every other place of this name. In other words, there is only one place named Springfield, but it is "linked" to various locations in the world.[/QUOTE]<span id='postcolor'>

    Uhm. I'm not about to go do any research on this nonsense, but there can't be all that many Springfields outside North America... This is so obviously a joke website. If they're so convinced that Australia doesn't exist, how in the hell were they able to register their domain from Melbourne?

    Oh come on.

    If we're going to be linking [smurf!] insane type writings, starting off with anything but www.timecube.com is a crime! =P

    I stumbled across that website quite some time ago. It provided a couple minutes of humorous entertainment.

    Hey, "The Flat Earth Society" was a 60s Psychedelic band, too!

    Let's assume that these guys were serious.

    Humanity has been proven wrong a million times before. Theories that have been laughed at and considered "retarded" have turned into the obvious truth. While this may not be the perfect example, it's really guys like these who'll come out one day and say "in your face". ?tounge.gif

    From my point of view, these guys aren't any different than people who believe in god...

    ...or like diet coke.

    Well, I think it's pretty obviously a joke, but I do like that Existential Negation Campaign. It's fun to put funny stickers on things.

    I found this site a while ago, and upon thinking that no one could be so stupid, I looked up other sites on it to see if it's an actual group. It is. I found an interview with the chairman of it or something a long time ago too, as well as their map of Earth. sarcasm.gif

    For what it's worth, they also believe that the moon is only 4000 miles away from Earth.

    I am sad to say that the site is no joke. I have heard of the people who run it and they are indeed serious about the claim they make. They are a good example of why I think people should be required to have a license to procreate.

    What's the difference between this and believing in god and/or the bible? From my point of view, it's the exact same thing.

    And don't give me the "because OMFG <this and that> has been proven since long and it's SO obvious that that's how it is!!", because that's pretty much what everyone's been saying for hundreds of years, for every new theory.

    How about "religions centered around the bible, as a general rule, don't openly advocate things which have been thoroughly disproven, I.E., that waterfalls line the edges of the earth and certain countries don't exist?"

    C'mon. You can distinguish between leaps of faith in things that haven't been proven (and possibly can't be), and beliefs in blatant falsehoods.

    Whether this site is a joke or not, I know there are a large amount of groups that are very serious in their beliefs, but are just as nuts. ?They advocate everything from the earth being flat to NASA faking the moon landing. ?There was one group a few years ago that said the earth was a gaint cylinder, and it was a distorting of the light reflecting off the atmosphere that make it look spherical from space. ?There was another group that not only believe the world is flat, but that it is going to be destroyed soon and says it is building it's own spaceships to flee the planet before doomsday. ?I guess the moral of this story is, that if you can make it up, there is someone out there that will believe it, and you can start your own group of wackos. smile.gif

    There is something I should really say at this point, and its something you will have trouble believing (as I did at first) because it goes against everything you where thought as a child but here it is. NO ONE EVER BELEVED THE WORLD WAS FLAT!!! It?s a complete myth created by Washington Irving in his biography of Columbus! Really it?s completely true, the Church never believed the world was flat, they believed it was the center of the universe but they never believed it was flat. According to the Church the universe was made up of spheres, 7 spheres of heaven 7 spheres of hell, and sandwiched in the middle the SPHERE of earth! If you look at old maps from the 14th or 15th century you will often see a image of god and in his hand he is holding a globe, the globe of earth.

    Sailors certainly never believed the world was flat for the simple reason that when you are at sea you can actually see the curvature of the earth.

    It amazing to think that something we take as common knowledge could turn out to be so totally untrue.
