The Scale of Blindness

I don’t have a huge amount of time to write, but I do have to say at least something. I read an article on CNN that makes me want to weep. Flat Earth belief is exploding precipitously. The problem I have is a very simple one. You cannot argue with a flat earther. Flat earthers […]

How to see that the Earth is round

These are things you can go and actually see in the world around you which are either a direct consequence of the roundness of the earth, or a direct observation of it.
