The Flat Earth Theory: Could it be true and what aren’t we being told
The Globe VS Flat Earth Theory
We have to admit, that even though there are some conspiracy theories that might sound absurd and anything but normal they are there for a good reason: It makes people question a lot of things. Sometimes we stumble upon small pieces of evidence that suggest a historical event or scientific discovery which is believed to be backed up by facts hasn’t been combed through and other realistic possibilities might not have been eliminated properly.
One of those theories is that of the Flat Earth.
On December 24, 1968, the crew of the Apollo 8 mission captured one of the most famous photographs in human history known as “The Earthrise”. The image, photographed by Astronaut William Anders displays one of the most beautiful images of our planet, the first color image of the Earth from space.
However, there are many people who claim that the Earth isn’t round, that the images from NASA are faced and that the Earth is, in fact, FLAT. The flat Earth theory is considered by many people as the greatest conspiracy in the history of our civilization.
According to proponents of the Flat Earth theory, the Earth is, in fact, a disc with the Arctic Circle on the center with a wall of ice of 150 meters around the edge in Antarctica. Day and night are explained as the sun and the moon is spheres measuring 51 kilometers and moving in a circular motion 4989 above the plane of the flat Earth. Like spotlights, these celestial spheres illuminate different parts of the planet in a cycle of 24 hours. In the flat earth, there is also an invisible “anti-Moon” that obscures the moon during lunar eclipses. Moreover, the gravity on the Flat Earth is actually nonexistent since the shape of the disc would collapse on itself. According to proponents of the Flat Earth theory, the flat Earth disk spins up to 9.8 square meters per second and is driven by a mysterious force called dark energy.
Followers of the Flat Earth theory ay that the photographs of the spherical earth are manipulated, GPS devices are also engineered to airline pilots think they are flying straight around a sphere when they are actually flying in circles on a disk.
According to its proponents, there are many reasons for governments and governmental organizations to conceal the “true shape of the Earth”, but a favorite explanation among many is that organizations like NASA steal billions of dollars promoting the idea that there is a round earth while spending money on “rockets”, “scientific” and ” technological research”.
Many people who believe in the flat Earth theory suggest that since most of us have never seen Earth from Space, we cannot blindly follow what NASA and other agencies are telling us…
But wait a minute, let’s do some research
First of all, let’s take a minute and watch some of the Flat Earth theory videos and see what their proponents are telling us:
While these claims are certainly interesting and fire up a person’s imagination most of these claims can easily be debunked by yourself. It seems that the only thing you need is a normal camera and a laptop. Here is a video which contradicts the Flat Earth Theory:
