Study: Almost All Flat Earthers Say YouTube Convinced Them

A new study by researchers at Texas Tech University found that 30 attendees, of two of the world’s largest Flat Earth gatherings, were convinced of the conspiracy theory by watching YouTube videos.

Asheley Landrum, who led the research at Texas Tech University, told the Guardian about the study:

The only person who didn’t say this was there with his daughter and his son-in-law and they had seen it on YouTube and told him about it.

According to Scientific American, firm Flat Earth believers make up less than two percent of the population.
