Hundreds from all over the world are in Cary [North Carolina] this week for the sold-out Flat Earth International Conference. The two-day conference is meant to help "uncover and debunk pseudo-scientific 'facts,'" organizers say. ... "It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to come here," said David Blair, who traveled to the conference from the United Kingdom. "As soon as it was announced, I booked the hotel and bought the ticket right away." Those attending say getting together with those who share their beliefs is a nice change of pace to the ridicule they usually receive. "It's not a way to make friends and impress your family because if they're not willing to look, they're going to think you're crazy," said David Weiss of Connecticut.
This is the first flat earth conference hosted by Kryptoz Media and Creation Cosmology Institute. ... Beliefs vary within the flat-earth community, but most argue the earth is a disc surrounded by an ice wall.
I check out Flat Earth videos on YouTube from time to time. And they are very entertaining.
Short on worthwhile information, but long on entertainment.
Yeah, these loons are a hoot. Their forums are hilarious. The kind of people who believe in crystals and magic rocks.

Sounds retarded, yet it's the theoretical underpinning of Capitalism... :)
