My Denial of the Flat Earth Society Idea

Maybe people supporting the 'Flat Earth Society' idea just want a tour of the NASA / ESA / SpaceX facilities and some personal insights like 'One Direction' has had. One should do a reality check of this particular matter:

It looks like a 'magic carpet' from some children's fairy tales, but it has nothing to do with reality. The viral nature of the idea reminds me of the vast spread of Scientology in the 20th century.

I don't share any of those ideas: no 'Flat Earth Society' please, no 'Scientology' please, and no 'Family medicine - Fake religion' please. I don't support pharmaceuticals in psychiatry neither, it is too invasive, but rather Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis and talking. In this busy, alienated world I understand there is no time for people in need and I hope that will change.

Many people are now greedy, some would even rob instead of helping a victim lying on the street. You can read more about the bystander effect here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bystander_effect
