Just in case it needs clarified. There are a number of types of flat earthers:
1 – Trolls doing it for fun (or money)
2 – Trolls / Poes doing it for money
3 – Poe’s doing it for giggles
4 – People who’s IQ you swear is so low the fact they are alive and breathing, and know how to feed themselves is shocking
Really the Poe/Troll aspect is probably high, especially with the higher ups in the flat earth community. They always seem to have merch, Patreon, and YouTube (or other) memberships, debates on their own channel where people pay to send messages. And almost begging/pissed if people don’t give them money, or as a few do, have (or had) these, then argue that they *don’t* have them when confronted about it.
This isn’t to say that flat earth debunkers don’t also have the same, but they generally don’t care if you give them anything, and are just grateful for people who do believe in giving money/buying stuff. But keep in mind I said “poe/troll” above with these things. Meaning, they don’t believe it’s flat, they’re just conning flat earthers for money. In a sense everyone makes money off flat earthers with these revenue streams–but the flat earthers don’t even realize they are just a cash cow.
At some points this site will list some random thoughts on flat earth stupidity, but I leave the *real debunking* to people like McTooon, and many others I’m not aware of their websites at the moment. I prefer the showing how their own arguments or photos contradict, or are just plain stupid if applied to anything else other than flat earth proof.
