    Hi.

    Stepped here while searching for a specific scam.

    Might be I will take more steps around in a near future.

    In the meanwhile, keep debunking up...

    Thank you much for the add. I joined because I found a fascination with the Flat Earth craze and have been debating the issue on social media for a few months (regrettably at times). At first, I stumbled on this site without realizing how well-known it already was, or that it was even a thing to "debunk" all this crap online. I just didn't know how bad it was out there with the misinformation. I simply found myself reading an anonymous discussion here, about the inverse square law of light, and I was impressed, both at the communication of content as well as the moderation. I rarely ever read an accountable discussion online these days: anywhere. That is why I refrained from posting, because there was plenty to read about rather than post my own two cents. stick to posts that add value. I do still hope to contribute more in the near future.

    Thanks again for a well designed and well maintained site.

    Hi and thanks for approving my first post which is now in the "what to do when family members believe in bunk" thread. To stay on topic in this Welcome thread, I'm quite far down the rabbit hole but I'm not completely lost. A friend of my wife's is a little further down and I've managed to successfully debunk a couple of things he sent me recently so there is hope for me yet. Having seen a few of the Sandy Hook things debunked (no time to see them all) I'm actually looking forward to finding out more about, well, all of the others.

    How have I never heard of this site??

    And I'm glad I finally found it! Every article I have read so far has been of the highest quality, I'm very impressed with the effort made here.

    What a wonderful resource you've made available to the public. Thank you!

    And somehow I posted this to the wrong thread originally? Yet I arrived at the place I posted it via the automatic forwarding after signing up a new account and I could have sworn it said "post your first hello post here".

    I sense a conspiracy afoot...

    Still new to this whole rabbit hole theory world.

    Got my friends to admit there is no solid evidence for chemtrails but I still have some questions around some of the events of 9/11 and moon landings as any skeptic should


    Hoping I can use the resources here to get a better understanding

    Hi all,

    My name is Ivan and I thought I would say hello! I love this site as I find myself constantly bombarded with [claims of questionable provenance] from conspiracy theorists, and tracking down the evidence to refute them is so much easier thanks to you! I have varied interests from history to science. I am currently floating on the Llangollen Canal on my 56 foot narrowboat, the only way to live!

    Hi everyone. I am both absolutely amazed and appalled that flat-earthism is somehow making a resurgence. I'm looking forward to collect, and hopefully helping to create, some good antibunk on this and other things.

    On a personal note, my name is Dave, and I'm from MN. :)

    Hello.

    Stumbled across this forum looking for something else (which I did not find), but then got distracted reading through various threads; and was impressed with the relatively civil discussion - a rare thing on internet forums.

    I as simultaneously astonished to discover that there are a significant fraction of people who actually seem to believe the earth is flat; and at the amount of patient effort put in by some here to demonstrate that wrong.

    Thought I would open an account in case I notice anywhere I have something to usefully contribute.

    I have joined because people don't appear to care about evidence and facts anymore. The number of people believing in conspiracies based on their "opinion" seems to be growing and has me worried for the future of the world.

    Like others, I went down the rabbit hole of debating flat-earthers online and sort of got addicted to it. It's been fun to refresh my knowledge and solidify some things that I didn't fully understand from my last science classes, decades ago.

    I wish I didn't waste so much time doing this, but I see so much misinformation out there, I feel like I need to say something. Flat earthers have a way of cherry-picking information that on the surface seem counterintuitive, and that really drives me to do research.

    The site seems to be a good forum of like-minded people.

    Hi folks,

    I first discovered metabunk some time ago, when I was looking for facts regarding 9/11. This site proved as a very, very valuable source of stuff to debunk all kind of weird claims. Kudos to Mick and the team and everybody contributing.

    And as the "WTC 7 Evaluation" is coming to an end next month, this looks for a good reason to create an account and take part in the discussions. :)

    Oh, BTW, I'm from Germany.

    Hello everyone! Been reading this forum for a couple of years already. I suspect I was looking for some counter arguments against sudden and surprising wave of flat earth people in Youtube. Now this wave seems to have arrived to Finland too in some extent. I also happen to know some anti-vaccine people. In general, the cult of ignorance seems to be spreading in an alarming speed. So, let's join Metabunk, right?

    Hello everyone. I am here because I am sick of being lied to by the people who should be watching out for us and representing us. I am on a mission to find the truth about all things that I think are being covered up, glossed over, and spun as much as possible to keep the majority of people clueless about what is really taking place. This has led me to many different places including Metabunk.org

    Hi,
    I'm Wilf from Kent, UK, and I'm one of the dwindling number of people who remember the Apollo missions. I started looking at Pinterest for woodworking ideas, and am now waist deep 'happily' debunking flat earthers. I'm not a great believer in conspiracies, but I do have problems with the whole 9/11 thing.
    I don't know if I can contribute anything of interest, but we'll see.
    As I write this, the very real Cassini is hurtling down to the very real Saturn .... fantastic stuff!

    I joined after some interest in the Atlanta bridge collapse, and have been lurking since long before. Started looking based on Flat Earth issues and 9/11 questions. I've been a metallurgical engineer, welding, and structural steel inspector for nearly 20 years and some of the things said regarding the collapse are very...entertaining.

    I've never paid any attention to conspiracies and such. The stuff being "debunked" here never crossed my mind of being in need of debunking. After seeing Mr. West on a podcast i was stunned to find out there are people out there truly believing this. It is refreshing to see how this forum deals with the topics.
    I am a software developer (MSc) and have a degree in civil engineering (BS) and i believe i could contribute in some way if i find anything interesting :)
    English is not my native language but i hope it's fair enough for you guys.

    Was blissfully unaware of the resurgent Flat Earth "movement" until roughly 2 months ago, and found my way here yesterday from an RE/FE vid on Youtube.

    Content to just lurk but thought I should at least sign up to support the site.
