How fitting. But of course B.C. has no shortage of flat earthers either. They're the same ones who think climate and weather are synonymous, and that increasing GHG emissions actually causes them to decrease because that's what Trudeau told them. (I'm not even going to get started on what Harper told them!)

“We think science is good, we’re not anti-science,” he said. “A lot of science has moved away from what science is supposed to be, it’s very theoretical. What experiment do you actually do to prove the curvature of the Earth?”

:135: Experiment? How about pictures from space? How come there's no Flat Mars Society?
What did Forrest Gump say, "Stupid is as stupid does."? I think dimples has a new campaign slogan.

I think painting flat earthers and those that question climate change with the same brush is a bit unfair, cactusflower. Ka-El, there probably was a Flat Mars society but weren't they embarrassed when they abandoned Mars for Earth, and they saw it was actually a big old ball in space. :200:

If there was a flat mars society, would they care at all that Mars climate is warming?

"enclosed creationist" Ha I want that on a t shirt. And must they always announce delegates are attending from around the globe?

Lol...Edmonton hosts Flat Earth conference. Before you know it they will be denying global climate change, endorsing guns in schools, privatizing Canadian healthcare, giving skinheads a voice, and voting Conservative.....OH, WAIT!
1) People forget conservatives used to be fiscally conservative. After harper, they have become fiscally liberal and socially racist. Fascism is the only thing they wish to conserve.

who is "denying climate change"? The climate is always changing.

How fitting. But of course B.C. has no shortage of flat earthers either. They're the same ones who think climate and weather are synonymous, and that increasing GHG emissions actually causes them to decrease because that's what Trudeau told them. (I'm not even going to get started on what Harper told them!)


I checked and this indeed is all about a Flat Earth society and nothing whatsoever to do with the man-made climate change myth. Why would you even link the two? I can see where you could say that Flat Earth theory doesn't have much science related to it, but then you would have to link that to people who still believe in the debunked man-made climate change theory and AGW. Both people would be considered "anti-science", though allowed to have their opinions.
