But tripe most certainly is a load of old cobblers.

In 300bc or thereabouts Pythagoras had already calculated that the earth was a sphere and even by the time of Columbus only a few nutbags thought the earth was flat.

Meanwhile in the 16th century the likes of Galileo and Copernicus fought to convince the heliocentric deniers that the Sun was indeed the centre of our solar system and not as the traditionalist continued to claim a system where the earth was at the centre.
