Though not a law of nature, “Occam’s Razor” is a generally sound principle: all other things being equal, it’s rational to choose the most parsimonious explanation for a given phenomenon.

And the notion that a mass with sufficiently strong gravity tends to form a spherical shape is fairly straightforward. OTOH, the Flat Earth hypothesis - which requires a myriad of special pleadings and conspiracy theories - is the very opposite of parsimonious.

Never mind they've admitted to seeing Mars and other planets are spherical but for whatever reason, we're special.

Speaking for myself; I have less love for Lord of the Rings lore than I do for Star Wars. LotR franchise to me is an allegory for white men fighting their crack addiction, nothing more.

I was this close to voting yes, but saw that this was a public poll :P

I want the percentage of "yeses" to crawl up to 40

No, silly. Those planets only LOOK spherical because of a trick of the light.

To me belief that the Earth is flat seems pretty stupid and unhinged (indeed if it was a conspiracy what are the benefits/motivation?) but that the moon landings were faked seems pretty intriguing and not exactly implausible and it seems weird (though frankly also amusing) that many get offended/horrified about belief in the latter.

It's possible to have faked the moon landings, I just doubt that was the case. I think we really went there.

No, it isn't possible the Moon landings were faked. Certainly not in an era without advanced CGI. There was simply no way to mimic the gravitational effects (not just the astronauts, but the dust, and equipment) on Earth. Among several other things, but that's a big one that was impossible to fake.

People get offended/horrified because hundreds of thousands of people worked on the Moon landings. They had a personal stake in it and by claiming it is fake they are essentially being accused of being liars. It is a direct personal shot at their honesty and integrity.

EDIT: Even today in Florida, you don't dare insult the space program (unless it is to complain about lack of funding), and it is a fraction of what it used to be. It is a campaign issue in pretty much every federal election.
