Blame it on YouTube. Just how susceptible are we? Supposedly rational people started watching Flat Earth theory videos on YouTube and ended up believing the Earth is flat. A new report says that the current YouTube recommendation engine is perfectly built to recommend videos that, while completely erroneous, have the most energetic supporters and is perhaps directly responsible for the noticeable rise in Flat Earthers. YouTube is working on adjusting its algorithm, so it stops promoting conspiracy videos. I guess that will help. Still, I don’t care how many videos I see about a “Flat Earth,” I would never believe it. So, I have to ask, what is wrong with these people?
