According to the Flat Earth Society, Brimstone Head on Fogo Island is one of the Four Corners of the World. Really.
That Flat Earth Society is a group of people that claim to believe the Earth is flat. Pretty straightforward. I mean, if the earth’s surface looks and feels flat, shouldn’t it be…flat?
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say: “The Flat Earth model is an archaic belief that the Earth’s shape is a plane or disk. Most ancient cultures have had conceptions of a flat Earth, including Greece until the classical period, the Bronze Age and Iron Age civilizations of the Near East until the Hellenistic period, India until the Gupta period (early centuries AD) and China until the 17th century.”
Even Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism pokes fun at it. Mostly because “flat earth” is so incroguent with the rocky, hilly topography of the entire Fogo Island.
The full list: Papa New Guinea, the Bermuda Triangle, Fogo, and Hydra (Greece).
