For those of you unfamiliar with this concept and the reasoning that accompanies the flat earth idea, I will lay out a couple of the arguments proposed by the advocates of this theory (many of whom are highly educated, with advanced degrees in cannabis cultivation and floral management), and leave you to make up your own mind.
*NOTE* this part should be read in a serious tone with somber music playing in the background in order to accurately represent the seriousness of this subject.
The first bit of evidence involves a few numbers and some mathematics, so if you are understandably frightened by the idea of having to calculate figures greater then the amount of finger you possess, I suggest you skip the next paragraph.
The round earth truthers claims that people standing at the equator are whirling around at approximately 1000 miles an hour, they further maintain that the earth is spinning around the sun at a speed of sixty-seven thousand miles an hour, and that our sun is supposedly racing around the center of our galaxy at 600,000 miles per hour. If these numbers are even slightly accurate, the immense wind generated by the rotation of the earth would make it impossible for me to leave my house without my toupee getting blown from my head. Further more, every time you hit a golf ball it would be carried hundreds of miles by the wind, forcing golf course designers to build greens and fairways stretching hundreds of miles through city streets and over bridges. Yet these giant golf courses do not exist, nor does my toupee fly from my skull, something doesn't add up here.
And what about the globe manufacturing industry, which everyone knows is as crooked as my uncle Sammy's sausage. It generates thousands of peso's every year by producing fallacious representations of a round earth in order to drive the more honest profession of map making out of business. Using deception and intimidation they have managed to find their way into schools and libraries while governments world wide step aside for fear of being crushed under the juggernaut that is Big Globe.
Do I even need to mention that the Bible is clear about the earth being flat? Are you going to argue with God? I'm not.
Think about this one; millions of people fire millions of bullets' from weapons every day and yet you never hear about any of those people getting hit in the back of the head by their own shot! If the world was round, people all over would be blowing their brains out from bullets whooshing around the globe and slamming into their skull. I'd like to see Neil deGrasse Tyson try and debunk that one.
How about my friend Chris, who is six foot six inches tall, I have seen him on many occasions standing at a great distance from me, yet he always appears vertical. If the earth was indeed round he should appear to be leaning at a greater and greater angle the further away he gets. The fact that he always appears to be straight, tells me he is standing on a flat surface and not a curved one.
Look, I'm not saying that the earth is definitely flat (yes I am), but there are just so many thing that seem to defy logic the more one investigates the "evidence." Am I really expected to believe some astronaut when he tells me about what he saw floating in space? Or pictures that NASA releases? Or my own eyes that time I circumnavigated the earth in a balloon? These things are hard to swallow, especially when you see all the flashy graphics and cool charts The Flat Earth Society have on their web site.
But don't listen to me, go to the site yourself and check out one of the many lectures given by a guy named Bob, who presents his theories from his mothers living room. He mumbles a lot when he speaks and his Mom is continually interrupting to ask if he wants a pizza pop, but they are none the less, very informative.
I know this concept is difficult to digest since most of us have been brainwashed from a very young age to believe the idea of a round earth, but I urge you to open your mind and follow the evidence wherever it goes (unless it goes to a round earth).
