Somehow this still exists: the Flat Earth Society. Members of this out-of-touch and out-dated society believed the Earth is a flat disc. On their map, the North Pole is right in the center of the disc. They believe that on the edges of this disc there is a 150-foot wall that contains the oceans. Many "flat Earthers" also believe that the moon landings were a hoax. (Spoiler alert: the Earth is definitely not flat).
