Flat-earthers are people who do not believe that the Earth is a sphere and that photographs of the planet taken from space are a hoax. The founder of the closed Facebook group, John Perri, said: The members are very active, with posts in the last month, and the numbers are growing every day. One male member said:
Despite seeming like a relatively stable place, the Earth's surface has changed dramatically over the past 4. Mountains have been built and eroded, continents and oceans have moved great distances, and the Earth has fluctuated from being extremely cold and almost completely covered with ice to being very warm and ice-free. These changes typically occur so slowly that they are barely detectable over the span of a human life, yet even at this instant, the Earth's surface is moving and changing. As these changes have occurred, organisms have evolved, and remnants of some have been preserved as fossils.
