Explorer: Hey everyone, the world is actually round, not flat.
Guy: Poppycock. Everyone can see the world is flat with their own eyes.
Explorer: no, really, I set sail and didn't fall off the edge.
Guy: so you say, but you have no proof.
Explorer: Well how did I get all the way back around here then while sailing in one direction only?
Guy: Easy. You didn't. You only think you did but your'e delusional. In the middle of the night you probably got turned around and actually sailed back here before you got to the edge and fell off. Or you're just lying.
Explorer: Ridiculous. I'm certain the world is round. I've been sailing for years. I'm telling the truth.
Guy: Well prove it.
Explorer: well come sail with me and I will show you.
Guy: Are you crazy? You want me to get on boat with you and sail to the edge of the world? We'll fall right off. No, prove to me it's round first and then I'll be willing to sail with you.
Explorer: Well if I can't show you personally then how will I prove it?
Guy: not my problem. But I'll give you a million dollars if you can prove it to my satisfaction.
Explorer: Well that's all well and good but if you're not going to get on the boat with me then how can I prove it? I've got a hundred guys who were with me who all saw the same thing I did.
Guy: All delusional. You've tricked them into believing the world is round. You should be ashamed of yourself, preying upon the weak minded with your mumbo jumbo reality.
Explorer: You know what? Think the world is flat if you want. I don't really care. I know it's round so I'm going to keep on spreading the truth no matter what you call me.
Guy: Uh huh, that's what I thought. No proof to back up your outlandish claims.
Explorer: Well maybe someday someone will leave the planet and be able to send back pictures of the world showing it's round.
Guy: Rubbish. Leave the Earth? I don't know of a single scientist who believes a human being is capable of flying. Now you're just crazy.
I could go on but I hope you get the gist and see how frustrating it is for those of us who have "sailed around the globe" and don't doubt anymore. Do you think we want to spend our time proving it to people who don't believe it's possible? Or shall we fill our ships with the intrepid and show them?
