A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
adjective: Proceeding by inquiry, search, or investigation.
noun: A skeptic or inquirer.
From Greek zetein (to seek or inquire). Earliest documented use: 1645.
NOTES: Samuel Rowbotham (1816-1884), a flat Earther, wrote a book called Zetetic Astronomy: Earth Not a Globe in 1881. Yesterday’s flat Earthers are today’s climate change denialists.
“It’s an old argument, and one that has been around for centuries, and it has pretty much been put to rest in these contemporary times. But just in case you come across any zetetic types or perhaps a member of the International Flat Earth Society, here is a little link you can throw into your argument, which gives the ‘Top 10 Reasons Why We Know the Earth is ROUND’.”
