I absolutely love to hear about what people believe. I've come to know about a group of people with quite the peculiar worldview on the reality around us: The Flat Earth Society.
The name of the group speaks for itself. These people reject the common spherical model of the earth that was first speculated in the 6th century
. The gist of what they promote is that the earth is flat; what is commonly known as Antarctica is actually a wall of ice that holds in the water of the oceans; the north pole is the center of the world; and the Sun, Moon, and heavenly bodies circle above us in the firmament.
I don't know exactly how I feel about what these people are saying, but I love the idea. For me is paints a picture of the world that would exist in the writings of Tolkien or perhaps an ancient tale passed down through the tribes of the Native Americans. I very much admire their courage to go against modern day world view.
Check out their website, and stay tuned to a follow up article for more details.
