why do people get so upset at flat earthers. flat earthers, of course, are wrong, but i dont see why they should be attacked for it. it doesnt harm anyone i think

i used to think the same thing about anti-vax people and chemtrail and 5g and interdimensional lizard Illuminati. and then they somehow went mainstream. now their crazy is having an effect on all of our lives.


@wagesj45 the difference is all of those conspiracies are directly harmful. just believing the earth is flat harms nobody- But, of course, as others have said, it can lead to other conspiracies which are in fact directly harmful
