Hundreds of people attended the First International Flat Earth Conference held in the United States, and hundreds of people gathered there presenting their ideas as to why our planet is ‘FLAT.’

The first ‘Global’ ‘Flat Earth Conference’ just took place, and hundreds of people attended

Hundreds of Americans gathered for the First International Flat Earth Conference in November 2017, in Raleigh, North Carolina in the United States.

The United States is one of the countries with the largest number of supporters of Flat Earth movement, despite the fact that it is also one of the few nations that have been able to send astronauts into space to corroborate the spherical shape of the earth.

How contradictory, right?

Approximately 400 people are thought to have attended the conference, flying from around the world to take part.  Tickets to attend ranged from $109 up to $249.

The attendees rejected that planet earth has a spherical shape, and assure that “it is the biggest fallacy created by Satan.”

Another one the many who attended the conference said that ‘she checked for herself that the Earth was flat after using a ruler and measuring the horizon.’

The First International Conference of the Flat Earth was composed of several presentations and exhibitions of products related to the theory that the earth is not really a spherical planet.

“It is horizontally infinite and at least 9,000 kilometers deep,” said John Davis, another theorist of this idea.

For his part, James McIntyre, members of the Flat Earth Society, has the idea that “the earth is, more or less, a disk of 24,900 miles in diameter,” and adds that “obviously not perfectly flat, due to geological phenomena such as valleys and mountains.”

McIntyre also said that the photos from space showing the circumference of the earth “are false,” and that “the world’s space agencies are involved in an international conspiracy to deceive the public in pursuit of vast profits.”

In a BBC video interview, one of the attendees said he just came to the conference to meet other like-minded people.

Some of the reasons why the attendees to the conference think the Earth is flat include:

– The Sun and the Moon move through the sky in a focused way, that is why they illuminate only certain parts of the flat earth.

– The earth gives the sensation that it is round because it is arranged in such a way that it simulates a group of concentric radii.  Furthermore, the horizon always appears perfectly flat – except in NASA and other space agency images, which are obviously faked (as part of the global conspiracy)

– When a plane flies, it flies completely horizontally, If the Earth was ’round’ planes would keep flying into space.

-Oh, here’s one of my favorite ones (lol) If our Earth was really spherical, helicopters would be able to hover in place and wait for their destinations to come to them. Savy?

The Flat Earth Conference also included a speech from prominent flat-Earther and YouTuber Mark Sargent who said: “I think we’re almost at the critical mass point. Science is gonna have to address this, plain and simple. They cannot dodge us forever.”

  1. I studied about flat earth theory but all claims can be explained with simple science. Flat earth theory has no base.

    1. There’s a study course for that?
      Dude, maybe a video game would’ve been more productive?

  2. I have a Facebook “friend” who shares the flat earth belief and posts all their “evidence” to show others how that belief is reached by “proof”. America is full, or at least half-full, of looney tunes who will believe any far-fetched idea. They never fail to amuse me.

    1. No you had it right the first time… America IS full…. These clowns that believe liberal talking points and those involved with the occult, hollow earth, clay earth, etc. ARE looney toons.
      If they are so smart, then why do they incessantly try to convince everyone else they are right and we are wrong?
      If I was them, I’d sit smugly in my home knowing I’m right and let the unbelievers die wrong.
      How easy would that be?

  3. Over 7 billion people on earth… 400 attended.
    I’d call that a “win”.
    /s

  4. I wish i could have made it to this. I may have popped my hernia again. Only 400 attended? There is hope

  5. If a plane flies completely horizontally, how does it get off the ground? Huhuhuh? It can’t! Therefore planes don’t exist! They are NASA holograms!! With real contrails of deadly poison. That has already killed us all, but been covered up!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    1. I don’t know who Reggie is, but thanks for being his mama. Anyway, helicopters by design aren’t supposed to fly either, but they do.
      And that’s what these nut jobs don’t get is just because “it can’t” didn’t mean “it won’t”.
      In the case of their plane argument, the direction of travel isn’t what’s important to getting a plane off the ground, air pressure and surface area are.
      In not bagging on you in any way. I get your /s comment… Trust me, ask fuzzy, or pony, or rickd… All I’m doing is reinforcing your point. So don’t take this the wrong way.

        1. That’s good to hear… Was hoping it wasn’t Marlio’s better half.
          “Van Halen belt… Can’t get to the moon… Radiation… Gluten free is God’s will…”
          Goofball.

          1. Marlio never responds.

            I would like to learn more about Van Halen

          2. Van Halen had inarguably the greatest and most charismatic front man EVER! Hands down, no contest….
            David Lee Roth
            (Marlio would argue spandex wasn’t invented until after the album 5150 w/Sammy Hagar… Therefore, DLR was a charlatan and uninspiring)
            Probably…

      1. Lol! Nice to meet you!! I was going to do a helicopter rant and go onto a birds smacking into the firmament spiel, but I got distracted! 😉

  6. Hey did you hear? Hundreds attended.
    Articles written by bots are so horrible.

  7. I just got back from the ‘Scientist claims there is a way to travel in time’ article.
    How long was I gone?

    1. You disappeared 1 day ago.

      You just appeared *poof* right now!

          1. That would be handy! I’m a little concerned about what it’s connected to.
