No, we no longer argue about the shape of the world

“This [removal of the film Vaxxed from the Tribeca Film Festival] is not about free speech; this is about dangerous speech. The question of whether there is a link between autism and vaccines has been asked over and over again, and the answer is always the same—no. We don’t discuss whether the world is flat or round any more.”

— Alison Singer, president of the Autism Science Foundation

 
Yeah, you’re right Alison, we don’t discuss whether the world is flat or round anymore, because those who argued both beliefs were WRONG. Because we were wise enough not to censor, and thus sidetrack, the scientific process, we eventually came to understand that the shape of planet Earth is what is referred to as an “oblate spheroid,” or an oval. Dummy.
