Exposing "flat Earthers" for the morons that they are...
17 February 2019 | by digitalbeachbumSee all my reviews

This is a documentary about 'flat Earthers' who believe the Earth is a flat disc, surrounded by an ice wall, with a dome, and a very small light source for the sun and the moon which spins around in the sky.

I am not going to use this review to point out all the evidence against the 'flat Earthers' because the list is too long and I'm not writing a review of their stupidity, but this is about the documentary called "Behind the Curve"

The director does a good job of mixing the interviews, but I think you should focus on Mark Sargent, who seems to have become the face for the 'flat Earth' conspiracy.

Mr Sargent is a con-man. He's in this business for the money. He has no other job other than selling books and materials about the 'flat Earth" and he is making good money at it. He claims that the flat Earth is real, but every time he is confronted with facts he twists the truth or he moves the goal posts.

He is the perfect example of why the 'flat Earth' idea is a complete and utter failure.

The other good thing about this documentary is the psychology of the people who believe this foolish idea. People who believe in religion are grouped right there with people who believe in a flat Earth and they have the same susceptibility because of their brains.

The ending of the documentary is a good sign that there is hope some people will learn that the Earth is not flat.
