Having flown round it a few times i'm pretty sure its not flat., and I haven't found the "edge" yet.

Perhaps these people are all fans of Terry Pratchett's Disk World novels?

The actual word is flat-earth,and having read the linked page I will now need surgery to remove the grin from my face. :)

Of course it's flat....We must all be careful not to fall off the edge :)

now believes "the Earth is flat and horizontally infinite - it stretches horizontally forever".

Oh dear.

the four elephants???

He's proberly vertically challenged too. :)

More a case of what he was drinking at the time :)

However, if he travels around the world, I suppose his take is that he is going in a straight line, and not following the curvature of the earth.

He needs help.

The point you are all missing, including all the Flat Earth Society members, is that the countries south of the Equator are all on the underside of the disk. This is why Australia is said to be "down under", because it is under the disk. In those southern countries, on the distant horizon, on a clear day, the elephants can be seen holding us all up.

How do you get "down under" with out going over the edge?

Or has Mr Davis already gone over the edge?

What about the turtle?

Is is shell strong enough to hold the 4 elephants indefinitely?

Does it "swim" through space?

Is the Sun flat? and does it rotate round the earth? or was that disproved in the 18th century?

Don't make me think too hard after a day at work!
