summary Flat Earth The History of an Infamous Idea Flat Earth The History of an Infamous Idea summary ¾ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF read & download ¹ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF µ Christine Garwood Contrary to popular belief fostered in countless school classrooms the world over Christopher Columbus did not discover that the earth was round The idea of a spherical world had been widely accepted in educated circles from as early as the fourth century bc Yet bizarrely it was not until the supposedly rational nineteenth century that the notion of a flat earth really took hold Even bizarrely it persists to this day despite Apollo missions and widely publicized pictures of the decidedly. So here s the first book conforming to my 2015 no books by white men resolution Flat Earth by Christine Garwood It examines fairly recent beliefs in an actual flat Earth It s an amusing read in places but drags most of the timeIt starts out with a couple chapters explaining why we as a culture thought folks back in Columbus time even thought that the world was flat Actually I didn t think they thought that nor I suspect do many people today Turns out it was evil secularists trying to drive a wedge between religion and science No really that s what the first couple chapters are about It s awkward as if she has an axe to grind but just a wee axe not deserving of a longer treatmentThen we get into some fairly modern day believers and their activities The characters are at times colorful Often they re just misguided fools spewing the same bad arguments over and over They re often lauded at the time for their debate skills despite their lack of good arguments Obviously there are parallels with creationists today These parallels are mentioned but not really analyzed in any wayEventually the book works its way through several people It ends with a summary that criticizes secularists a bit while somewhat lauding the Flat Earth people for no apparent reason There s a mention of the parallels to creationism again but no analysis againAnd therein lies the problem with the book It just doesn t know what it wants to be Reconciling science and religion is a juicy topic but isn t treated in depth here nor even handedly Parallels with creationism are ripe with possibilities but the text never examines these other than to merely mention them They re no evolution of Flat Earth theories just the same ones offered over and overAll that leaves is a book about wacky people who believe wacky things Frankly that could be enough given sufficient wackiness These folks lack that level of wackiness They re not boring mind you Well some are simply boring people They re just not interesting enough to carry the book by themselvesOverall it s not a bad read but nor is it really a good read It was good enough that I read it all the way through yet I would be lying if I claimed I wasn t looking forward to the end just a bit I want to give it two and a half stars
