You Can Hang Out in Fort Collins With Folks Who Don’t Believe the Earth is Round

It had to be Fort Collins, right?  The Fort is becoming more and more like Boulder every day, it seems. Come to find out, there’s a group that meets once a week to discuss how the Earth is as flat as an open bottle of craft beer left out on the porch for a few days.

Earth Globe

A bunch of ‘Earth Deniers’ is what I call them. How could any logical person believe that our Earth is flat? I saw the headline from the Denver Post and had to dig in. ‘[Coloradoans Believe Gravity is a Hoax].’ I thought, ‘What goofballs in Boulder are doing this?’ Nope, Fort Collins. Super.

The group isn’t buying this ‘500-year-old conspiracy’ that says the Earth is spinning really fast, and therefore causing gravity. They insist we’re sitting still. Like on a huge table. What? Here’s the kicker- this group isn’t only 5 or 6 ‘reality challenged’ people. There are over 30 of them that meet in Fort Collins!

According to the Post, they gather every Tuesday at a coffee shop at Drake and Shields- ‘The Purple Cup Cafe.’ Reminds me of ‘Tin Foil Hat.’  So, you could be at the Purple Cup on a Tuesday and check out the Tin Foil Hat Club (their real name is Flat Earth Fort Collins), and see and hear for yourself what they believe and don’t believe.

I can’t believe they meet every week. How much could they be covering? ‘The Earth is flat. Adjourned. Have a great, flat life.’ Oh, Brother.

Oh yeah- Do not ask them about the upcoming total solar eclipse. They’ll explode like a confused robot!
