    I know why to because you will have to find another hobby when you realize there is no ice wall and earth is not flat
    I think sadly you are correct. Except there aren't millions of them.

    I am all for people discussing the nature of reality and the place of humans in the universe. However, non-Globe-Earthers seem to not have a coherent philosophy at all. They are quite happy to use computers, mobile phones and the internet but claim to reject the science that underpins those very same devices...

    In general, scientists observe and measure natural phenomena, hypothesise models for how things work and then test those models. Non-Globe-Earthers either completely ignore this or pay lip service to the concepts.

    Almost all current scientific models are wrong to some extent (Richard Feynman said this) but some of them are useful - for example, Newton's Laws of Gravitation can be used successfully to describe and predict the motions of many objects that are moving relative to each other but don't account very well for the orbit of mercury, for example. Einstein's General Theory of Relativity explains very well almost everything we observe about the motions of stars, planets and other celestial objects but we know it is incomplete due to quantum phenomena.

    Non-Globe-Earthers are intellectually dishonest because they claim to be interested in "truth" but in reality do very little to establish the veracity of their theories.

    They have extremely low standards of proof for their own "sources", and a bias against everything they consider mainstream.

    As you said, science works well in many areas and less so in others. The scientific method requires constant updates and changes, because even though we know and understand far more than we did hundreds of years ago, the cosmos is so complex and huge, that we probably don't even truly understand 1% of our reality. It's incredibly fascinating.
