Your Curmudgeon has been interested in this topic ever since we learned what the bible teaches — The Earth Is Flat! So we were delighted to spot this headline at the Live Science website: Flat-Earthers’ Cruise Will Sail to Antarctica ‘Ice Wall’ at the Planet’s Edge. Right. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Organizers of an annual conference that brings together people who believe that the Earth is flat are planning a cruise to the purported edge of the planet. [How wonderful!] They’re looking for the ice wall that holds back the oceans. [It’s there!] The journey will take place in 2020, the Flat Earth International Conference (FEIC) recently announced on its website. The goal? To test so-called flat-Earthers’ assertion that Earth is a flattened disk surrounded at its edge by a towering wall of ice.
Hey — this is really exciting! The news article says:
Details about the event, including the dates, are forthcoming, according to the FEIC, which calls the cruise “the biggest, boldest adventure yet.” [Yeah!] However, it’s worth noting that nautical maps and navigation technologies such as global positioning systems (GPS) work as they do because the Earth is … a globe.
Don’t be misled by that globist propaganda! The article tells us:
Believers in a flat Earth argue that images showing a curved horizon are fake and that photos of a round Earth from space are part of a vast conspiracy perpetrated by NASA and other space agencies to hide Earth’s flatness. These and other flat-Earth assertions appear on the website of the Flat Earth Society (FES), allegedly the world’s oldest official flat Earth organization, dating to the early 1800s.
Great bunch of folks! The article continues:
However, the ancient Greeks demonstrated that Earth was a sphere more than 2,000 years ago [Globist fools!], and the gravity that keeps everything on the planet from flying off into space could exist only on a spherical world. [Huh?]
What are they saying — a flat planet wouldn’t have any gravity? That’s absurd! Let’s read on:
But in diagrams shared on the FES website, the planet appears as a pancake-like disk with the North Pole smack in the center and an edge “surrounded on all sides by an ice wall that holds the oceans back.” This ice wall — thought by some flat-Earthers to be Antarctica — is the destination of the promised FEIC cruise.
Wowie — we gotta be on that cruise!
The article ends with a few paragraphs of globist propaganda, which we’ll skip, but if you like that stuff you can click over there to read it for yourself. Your Curmudgeon will make every effort to be on that voyage. Perhaps we’ll have more information in a week or so — around April first (if you know what we mean).
