Is the earth flat

Hey there, fellow GenZers in India, what’s up? Have you ever stumbled upon people who still believe that the earth is flat in this day and age? I know I have, and it’s pretty wild if you ask me. I mean, come on, we have the scientific evidence that proves the earth is round, but some people just don’t seem to get it. In fact, a Hunch poll showed that 39.7% of voters are pretty clear on this – “A big No” to the flat earth theory. Meanwhile, 22% voted for “Science says no,” and 19.9% chose “Check out yourself.” But wait for it, 18.4% of voters still believe that the earth is flat! Mind-boggling, right?

Now, let’s try to figure out why some people still cling to this debunked theory. First off, let’s acknowledge that beliefs are personal, and not everyone is comfortable with scientific explanations. Some people find it hard to accept certain scientific concepts, and that includes the idea of a round earth. Plus, some folks have religious convictions that clash with the idea of a round earth, and others see it as a way of being different and standing out.
 

However, we must also address how social media has helped to spread misinformation and conspiracy theories. The internet has made it easy to spread and share information, but that doesn’t mean everything we read online is accurate. We’ve seen plenty of YouTube videos, TikTok clips, and social media posts that promote the flat earth theory, and some of them have millions of views. This is because social media algorithms prioritize engagement and controversial content, and conspiracy theories tend to be pretty sensational.

But here’s the thing, promoting misinformation can be dangerous, especially when it comes to issues like climate change. India is already facing the impacts of climate change, including more frequent and severe heatwaves, droughts, and floods. So, it’s imperative that we take science seriously and address the challenges we face by relying on accurate information.

Lastly, the top comment on the Hunch poll raised an essential point – we need to differentiate between personal beliefs and scientific facts. The comment mentioned some people in college believing in a flat earth, but not having any scientific evidence to support their belief. We should always be skeptical of personal beliefs that contradict established scientific facts.
 
In conclusion, the Hunch poll result is an eye-opener for us all. We need to promote accurate information and scientific evidence to tackle the challenges we face as a society. Also, we need to approach conversations about flat earth theory with empathy and understanding, but also with facts and evidence to back up our arguments. So, if you ever find yourself in a conversation with someone who believes the earth is flat, remember to be respectful, but don’t be afraid to call out misinformation and present the scientific evidence.
