Video: Flat Earthers present ‘EVIDENCE’ for why the Earth is FLAT

In an age where countless things circulate on the internet, a new video posted by IFLScience takes a look at some of the most bizarre reasons why many people think our planet is in fact FLAT.

As noted by the article written of IFLScience, “here’s some of the evidence presented by ‘Flat Earthers’ as to why we should ignore the facts, forget about science, and shun those awful, awful liars at NASA. Bear in mind, these are just some of their reasons.

The author continues “If you’re looking for an actual challenge to hard science, from the fact that different points on the planet experience day and night at the same time, or the Coriolis effect, to the round shadow of Earth on the Moon, well you’ve come to the wrong place. Funnily enough, these guys have neglected to explain these things.

But why on Earth does anyone still think the Earth is flat?

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.

In fact, the idea that the Earth is flat went beyond all reason when a Ph.D. student presented a thesis claiming the Earth is FLAT, stationary, the center of the universe and only around 13,500 years old. The student not only suggested we live on a flat Earth, she also rejected scientific theories presented by Newton and Einstein, astronomical discoveries made by Copernicus and Kepler, the Big Bang theory, atmospheric and geological activity, most of modern climatology, and basically all other scientific teachings made in the past.

Anyway, check out this cool video by IFLScience and comment on your favorite theories.

    They forget to talk about the 4 elephants and the big turtle!

      And the rimfall and Cori Celesti!

      Thought it was some super huge strong man lifting it on his shoulders….name was Catguts….no wait…..Gaseous…..no, that’s not it either.
      I’ll have to look in an Atlas and see if I can spot the name in the first few pages.

  • rickd12

    How people still buy into this is a complete mystery to me. I’m probably very closed minded. Yeah thats it

    • Fuzzybunny

      Or you have one of them brain things what are working?

      • rickd12

        Indeed. Why haven’t they shown up yet?

        • Fuzzybunny

          Ahem… A certain continent slumbers, yet.
          Actually no, that doesn’t work, it is quite late!
          Perhaps all the celebratoring of Independence?

          • rickd12

            Of course!!! That explains why it’s so quiet in work.

  • Fuzzybunny

    Oh d-d-d-ddear…. to quote piglet.

  • Sleeveheart

    This just in: the sun isn’t really that hot.

    • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

      We seem to all be the unwitting participants in some huge Truman Show, huh? I wonder how thin they believe the crust is?

      • Sleeveheart

        I just hope it’s leavened!

        • Fuzzybunny

          The inhabitants of Agartha will be so sad if it is not!!

          • Sleeveheart

            A thin crust is ok with me. I just hope the edge is rolled and stuffed!

  • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

    I understand that student got the highest score possible on her thesis too. Ridiculous.

    The Antarctica is not a continent but a wall of ice around the edge of the earth, as a pie plate. Any way we go on the earth, if we go far enough, we would end up at the Antarctica. I believe south is really down through the earth. We have been told the Earth was round since we entered the first grade, or brain washed into believing it, therefore its difficult to change your beliefs and thats what the Government is counting on, that you will never doubt what they say.

    • Sleeveheart

      I’m not convinced that seawater is actually salty.

    • Chris Serres

      A round moon, round planets (with more round moons) and we are flat? I
      am so tired of these flat earthers, they KNOW Earth is a tetrahedron!
