Turns Out, The Earth is Actually Flat... Who Knew?

I happened across something interesting on the web today. There exists a world-wide organization that refers to itself as---I am not making this up---the Flat Earth Society. Check it:

http://theflatearthsociety.org/

The esteemed ladies and gentlemen of this illustrious society hold that the Earth is actually a disk-shaped body with the North Pole at the center, and the Ice Wall (more commonly known as Antarctica) bordering the outside edge. This earth-disk is being constantly accelerated upwards by "dark energy" at a rate of 9.81 m/s^2, creating the illusion of gravity, while the sun and moon are spotlights that hang above the disk and move over it in a regular pattern.

But what about the moon landing, you say? Photographs from space? All fabrications, designed to keep the sheeple in line. There are even troops from various world powers patrolling the Ice Wall to make sure nobody gets close enough to find out the truth. Why, you ask? So government space programs can continue sucking in billions of dollars for things like "research" and "exploration."

If you are as outraged as I am by this now-obvious worldwide conspiracy, and would like to learn even more, their Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=43439238728) has an extensive FAQ. Feel free to join up and post comments, as members of the Society absolutely love to intelligently discuss their beliefs.

Lastly, in case you ever need real-life support from a member of the society, here is a link to their roster:
