Very much like Noel Edmonds, few people take Flat Earthers seriously other than themselves. But they do take themselves seriously. Very, very seriously.

In a thread on Reddit, users have suggested that a reality show is the best way for them to prove once and for all that Christopher Columbus was playing the role of MSM shill when he claimed the world was round.

In the show a group of Flat Earthers would set out on a mission to find the edge of the world. Imagine Survivor plus a job lot of 'you what?'

Most Flat Earthers, conveniently, don't believe it's possible to reach the tip of our 'flat' planet as it's blocked by a giant 'ice wall'. And, apparently, there's also an army of White Walkers up there about to wage war on the realm of men.

Reddit user brssnj45 explained: "I recently met a Flat Earther. So the idea is that there's a gap in the ring you can pass through, but it's being guarded by the military at the south pole, and absolutely no one is allowed past that point.

"Thus what we think is our planet is more like Attack on Titan, and this giant ring is a wall we don't know about and can't go past."

Knut_Sunbeams was a little more savage. They wrote: "I got banned from their sub for laughing at them. Their mentality seems to be that even if they were taken to space and shown the Earth as the sphere it is they still wouldn't believe it so they 'challenge' the ideas of so called intellectuals.

"Personally if you're going to deny science in such a stupid fucking way and spout conspiracy theories about NASA you should be banned from using anything made possible by science. Have these morons living in huts with zero access to technology."

Finally, someone suggested that instead of sending Flat Earthers to the 'edge of Earth', they should be put in a space shuttle and sent into space... "but after they see the Earth, the ship should just keep going further and further and further and further."

Sadly, I can't help but think Flat Earthers probably think space travel is some kind of conspiracy, too.
