According to the Flat Earth International Conference (wtf…there’s a conference!?!), a cruise is in the planning stages and slated for 2020. Few details are available on their website (literally…nothing…just a picture of a boat and the statement “The Biggest Boldest Adventure Yet – Flat Earth Cruise 2020”).
But hey, nautical technology, tradition and science be damned.
The irony here is rich.
In case you didn’t know, Flat Earthers believe the earth is flat (see what I did there) instead of the well established sphere that it actually is (my guess is that many Flat Earthers are also anti-vaccine, but that’s just me going out on a wild limb here…).
According the highly educated (sarcasm) Flat Earth Society (yes, there’s a society):
“The evidence for a flat earth is derived from many different facets of science and philosophy. The simplest is by relying on ones own senses to discern the true nature of the world around us. The world looks flat, the bottoms of clouds are flat, the movement of the Sun; these are all examples of your senses telling you that we do not live on a spherical heliocentric world. This is using what’s called an empirical approach, or an approach that relies on information from your senses.“
