Debunking the Flat Earth Theory

Meteorologist Keith Carson addresses the people who believe that the earth is flat (called flat earthers) by presenting solid evidence for the contrary. He can't help but be a little snarky about it. Along the way, we find out how flat earthers explain all the things that tell us that the earth is round: day and night, the changing of the seasons, and NASA. Those explanations are painfully and unnecessarily convoluted. That's what happens when belief shapes evidence instead of the other way around. Occam's razor, y'all. (via Digg)

Now I do believe y'all being a bit too parsimonious with
regard to variables. No set of mutually inconsistent
observations can exist for which some human intellect
cannot conceive a coherent explanation, however

We all really like Keith and I'm looking forward to the story
coming up in the next day or so on how his video's gone viral.

Happy Friday Miss C.
