Why do people still think that the earth is flat ?

 

This is a great little video (click the link) raising the questions:

  • What type of evidence constitutes proof ?
  • What is the difference between belief and fact ?
  • How are minority perspectives developed and sustained ?

and many many more questions.

This would be a great lesson activity for teachers early in the ToK course.
