A new Flat Earth Society movement is being launched in Australia.
The Flat Earth Forum has its headquarters in Canberra and has a Facebook page that has over 7,000 followers.
The group says it wants to help people understand that there are multiple theories on the world’s flat earth and that the earth is actually flat.
A spokesman for the organisation said the site was founded in April after the group noticed a new movement growing online.
“We are interested in building a network of people and people-to-people who understand the facts and the reality of the earth and who share the same passion for truth and justice,” he said.
He said the organisation wanted to bring the truth of the Earth to as many people as possible.
It is currently focused on the “skeptic” side of the debate, which says the Earth is flat and that there is no evidence to support it.
Flat Earth Society leader Richard Branson said the group was not affiliated with any particular religious group.
But he said it was a good place to get information about flat earth.
In a Facebook post, he wrote that the Flat Earth society was about “moving forward, to explore new ideas and discover new truths”.
“The Flat Earthers, Flat Earth Creationists and Flat Earth Skeptics are here to help us make sense of all the conflicting information out there,” he wrote.
Branson added: “We have an enormous amount of information to digest.”
“So, if you’re curious about all the science, why the Earth looks the way it does, or why it’s so warm and why we have so much snow on the ground, or the origins of the Sun, or anything else, then this is a great place to start.”
You can also join the Flat Earts, the Flat earthers and the Flat Earths Facebook group to share your discoveries and ideas with the world.
“Flats are also in the news in the US.
Last month, a Flat Earth Foundation executive said she had been denied entry to the US in part because of her views on the subject.
She was travelling to Canada to speak to the Flat World Forum.
Australia has also been a target of criticism, with a former Flat Earth founder accused of child abuse.
David Icke was charged with two counts of child molestation and two counts each of attempted sexual assault and attempted child exploitation in a 2012 case involving a former member of the group.
In the case, he was also accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy in a hotel room.
Icke was also found to have lied to police when they raided his home in the early 2000s.
‘No evidence’ of ‘flat earth’ Mr Icke said his organisation had no evidence of a “flat earth”.”
We’re not interested in being called ‘flat earthen people’, because we don’t believe there is any evidence to that,” he told ABC Radio National.
Australian Federal Police have previously investigated allegations that members of the Flat 9 group sexually abused children.
They are also investigating allegations of fraud in the creationist movement.
