Why Do People Still Think the Earth is Flat?

Raleigh, North Carolina, was the site of the first Flat Earth International Conference a couple of weeks ago. A few hundred people traveled from all over to meet with like-minded people who reject the notion that the Earth is a ball hurling through space. They believe what they see -and the things they choose to read and watch on the internet. They see the Earth as a flat disc, with the Antarctic as an icy barrier that keeps us from falling off the edge.
