Flat Earth Day

In fairness, why not celebrate Flat Earth Day? It would be a day for science deniers everywhere.  Science denying is becoming increasingly popular.  Colorful deflated balloons hung upside down, the perfect decoration.

“Mad” Mike Hughes, has every right to believe as he so chooses.  He recently launched himself in a steam-powered, home-made rocket, to support his belief that the earth is flat. He survived the ordeal. Results of his semi-scientific endeavor have yet to be determined.

What determined which parts of scientific discovery would be denied?  What was the scientific basis behind science deniers?  Would science deniers believe any of it–if there were?

What else remained to be denied?  The field was wide-open.  Newton’s Laws–gravity,  inertia, objects in motion.  There were many unscientific case studies that involved humans, on old AFV and Jackass videos.

“Mad” Mike Hughes may be a flat-earther, but he’s far from crazy.  There haven’t been any anti-gravity enthusiasts so far.  And what would they do?  Walk around with attached weights?

Why haven’t flat-earthers discovered the edges of our planet?  Humans have been on this planet long enough to find out–in my opinion.
