Why do people think the Earth is flat?
What makes them so convinced it is?

The Earth is so large it's not immediately obvious that it is round but even thousands of years ago it was widely known that it was round. People living beside large bodies of water might have an advantage since they can observe ships disappearing over the horizon.

Professed disbelief in factual opens their door to all science-based evidence
being denied on the basis of public bias or foreign malice as an act of war.
People who claim to read one book for scripture value need denial of science.
Which is a fact that others can reproduce. Faith without it is a bias opinion
Ben' Franklin, a N. America founding father, invented the Lightening Rod.
Churchmen attempted to halt sale of that invention, saying, "It steals the just
wrath of God." Purchase would begin denial of prayer for safety from all
natural events attributed by Church faithful to their God. Show me a church
today without protection from weather-produced lightening bolts.

most of them are trolls, stating something they know to be false, for whatever strange reasons trolls do what they do.
The rest are very deluded, or stupid or just trying for the publicity.
