Today, my cousin's husband argued adamantly that the Earth doesn't rotate, and treated me like an idiot when I explained why he was wrong. Not even a video from space of the Earth rotating convinced him. This idiot is a teacher. FML
Schizomaniac tells us more :
Thankfully he's only a PE teacher. Not to discredit PE teachers, but at least he is not in a position to actually provide information to students. This guy is an absolute nutjob. These are real claims he has argued in the past: -evolution is a lie (no surprise) -dogs are more intelligent than chimpanzees -our most sophisticated equipment can't see outside our galaxy (lol) -humans are the only animals that rely on fruits and vegetables for food And many, many others. He's the type of person to argue with a chef because he read a cookbook. It's sad.

The earth isn't flat but nothing proves that it isn't , watch vsauce's video on youtube about the earth being flat.

No, no, the elephants stand on the giant turtle, and the earth sits on the elephants, and a small sun travels around the earth, and sometimes an elephant has to lift a leg to let the sun pass through.

I read it in a book, so it must be true.

71 you worded it rather weirdly. I've seen the video, and it's more that there is evidence that the earth could be flat. Now, we all know it isnt, but it is still interesting.

I read it too. Just the other day, a man carrying a sign saying that the end is near gave me a leaflet about how the aliens are going to take our sperm in the night, and that Obama is using them to invade Texas. I believed him. After all, printed words can't lie. That's totally a law or something.

133, the turtle is female of course, as revealed in another book I read.

Once an eternity she travels back to the giant red star to watch her babies hatch. Each with their own set of four elephants and small disc on their backs.

If he wasn't just doing a really good job of messing with OP... I find it genuinely frightening to know that even one person like him exists.

Not that I don't realize the world has no shortage of nitwits, so I guess I should be frightened regardless.

Don't know how many teachers there are like that, but there seem to be plenty of idiots in places like Texas and Mississipi that _want_ them to teach that kind of bollocks, and try to pass laws to that effect.

I actually had a student who was (unironically) a flat-earther. Luckily, she was in my creative writing class and not a science class. She was a pretty decent writer, though. But the whole flat-earth thing was weird.

I'm thinking this guy is a teacher at a private Christian/Catholic school where credentials aren't required, just the word of the "good book".
