The other third either aren't sure or subscribe to flat Earth theory.

According to a recent YouGov poll, Millenials are more likely than any other generation to say they believe the world is flat, or that they just aren't sure what to believe.

Surveying 8,215 adults, the poll results show that Americans are increasingly likely to believe the Earth is round the older they are.

Percentage of American adults who believe the Earth is undeniably round:

  • 18-24: 66
  • 25-34: 76
  • 35-44: 82
  • 45-54: 85
  • 55+: 94

It's a little scary that younger generations are subscribing to flat Earth theory in such numbers; but on the bright side, the vast majority of Americans (84 percent) still believe the Earth is round -- at least for now.
