Place of the Conspiracy in FET

From The Flat Earth Wiki

The existence of 'The Conspiracy' is a consequence of the FET. Virtually no one begins with the conspiracy and develops a belief in the FET. A zetetic starts with the knowledge that the earth is flat, as they believe that all the evidence they are personally able to collect and verify confirms this. As a consequence they assume the evidence to the contrary, much of which they are unable to personally test/verify as being false. The existence of such a huge quantity of false information indicates the existence of the conspiracy.

Essentially the reasoning boils down to:

    P1) If personally unverifiable evidence contradicts an 
    obvious truth then the evidence is fabricated
    
    P2) The Flat Earth is an obvious truth
    
    P3) There is personally unverifiable evidence that 
    contradicts the FET

    C1) The unverifiable evidence that contradicts the FET 
    is fabricated evidence
    
    P4) If there is large amounts of fabricated evidence then 
    there must be a conspiracy to fabricate it
    
    P5) There is a large amount of fabricated evidence (see C1)
