When the 'Flat Earth' subject is raised with people who are unaware that it is a hot topic, the usual default proclamations arise such as: 'Everybody knows Earth is a globe' and 'we figured this out thousands of years ago.' This is simply not true! Earth has been regarded as a 'fixed motionless plane' for millennia, its just that the western world has not known it for the most part. The lack of movement of Earth, parallax of stars and the obvious properties of water have long since been clear indicators of the reality of our environment.
