There is no way they are serious.

They are not serious about a flat earth, but they are seriously seeking attention. Such behavior is common right here on APC.

If the Earth was round we would all fall off think about it.

Why would you waste your time doing that. Might as well spend your time thinking about a plane on a treadmill.

Always thought these people were a joke until my limo driver on a Vancouver overnight had the flat earth conversation with me. The captain was definitely grateful to have chosen the back seat.
Many great scientific discoveries were inadvertent (Big Bang, penicillin, etc.). The results of this experiment may be similar. While attempting to prove the earth is flat, he may unintentionally provide proof for the theory of natural selection.

Though yes he is proving that his genes are not worth passing on Im gonna contest that the big bang theory of cosmology was an inadvertent discovery. Rather the discovery that the galaxies were receding at a rate proportional to there distance was perhaps inadvertent. But to build the big bang itself, that required a lot of work. It needed Einstiens theory of relativity (general), tons of additional observations, and now even incorporates particle physics (for the early universe). In an odd twist, Einstien initially worked to prove a static universe and added a constant to his equation to show it. He later regretted this move and called it his biggest blunder. Interesting though the constant has been reapplied but for a different purpose.

Not looking to start an argument, but if we are to rip on the flat earthers for their blatant ignorance, we gotta make sure we are absolutely accurate as well

Was referring to Cosmic Microwave Background radiation discovered by Wilson and Penzias accidentally in 1964, for which they won the Nobel. At the time the static cosmology model was still competing with the Big Bang.
