Have you always known that the Earth was flat or did you, at one point in your life, believe the spherical Earth claims? When did you find out that the Earth was flat?

I bought into the ball to the degree as I didn't even really know of other alternatives as I was growing up, but I had always had questions. I still recall my 8th grade earth science class and me asking questions like, 'How come we don't see separate sets of stars in the night sky every six months' and 'How come the rotation of the earth doesn't cause things to fly off', and 'Shouldn't we be weightless at the poles'. The usual response was something like, 'because smart people say so'. The exception was the rotation question where I'd be told we didn't fly-off due to centrifugal force, but when I objected and told them that force would have the exact opposite effect, then it defaulted to the 'smart people say so' response. As a result, there has always been a mental asterisk in my mind about the current model.

Flat earth popped up on my radar a bit over 2 years ago. At first I just kind of blew it off, but after a while I started wondering what those people were seeing that I'm missing. Just because someone disagrees with the standard group-think doesn't automatically make them wrong. So I started looking at the arguments and evidence, considering them from both viewpoints. Then there was one specific day where I recall the exact moment of clarity, and I verbally proclaimed 'uh-oh', because it was then I realized flat made more sense then a ball, and it has only been reinforced ever since.
