"That one about the world being flat.
I once had a conversation with a guy who was adament the earth was flat, and no one has ever been on the moon. The most entertaining conversation I've ever had without having to remove my clothes afterwards.
Funny - Seems believing the world is flat and that man never set foot on the moon are two conspiracy theories that seem to go hand in hand for those non-believers".
The stupidity of some people never ceases to amaze me. I've spoken to a few people who still think that the sun revolves around the Earth and not vive versa
i mean c'mon how daft must one be to believe that. Then there are others who have no idea what a planet is- they see the planet Venus in the sky or Jupiter and say "wow look at that bright star", then i tell them no it's a planet and they are like "what"?
Regarding the Hale-Bopp cult suicides, what actually happened was when Hale-Bopp was first photographed about 6 months before closest approach a smudge appeared on the film and the cult members took this to be a "UFO" tagging along behind the comet when in reality there was nothing there, the smudge was a photographic problem.
