    In the end it's probably the best way to go about it... because you know, if these supernatural things do exist... they may send something undead after you.:)

    Okay, okay. I quit. You win. I suggest you infiltrate the order instead, pretend to take vows, etc ...and you'll learn all you need to know! :)

    Recently saw a reply from the Flat Earth Society to Elon Musk...

    Musk had asked why there wasn't a Flat Mars Society (obvious, really. Those bacteria haven't got themselves organized enough to philosophise about life, the universe and everything)

    Flat Earth's reply: (https://www.cnet.com/news/flat-earthers-to-elon-musk-mars-is-round-silly/)

    Hi Elon, thanks for the question. Unlike Earth, Mars has been observed to be round.

    We hope you have a fantastic day!

    I guess Mars is very dangerous to stand on since it is accelerating in the Z axis at 9.8 m/s^2, same as us. I suppose Mars has the same gravity as the earth on its north pole, but anything loose on the bottom falls right off. Guess that's what happened to its oceans!

    Back in 1829, "Doc," the professor of my newswriting class, was one of those old-school, trenchcoat reporter types. He was stubbornly against investigative reporters going undercover, citing Woodward and Bernstein's work on Watergate. His words (pre-Google):

    "If you ask the right questions and develop good go-to sources, there's no need to go undercover."
