We’ve been searching for a long time, and at last we found a newspaper with the courage to reveal The Truth™. Imagine our joy when we saw this headline in the Daily Mirror, a national tabloid published in London: Man with a science degree really, truly believes the earth is flat. They have a comments feature. Here are some excerpts from the news, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
A conspiracy theorist from east London has outlined his far-fetched view that the earth is actually flat. India-born Safvan, 23, is a bilingual science graduate who holds some rather outlandish views about our planet. He is part of growing online community that rejects conventional wisdom that the earth is round – much to the bemusement of everyone else.
The tabloid tosses in expressions like “far fetched,” and “outlandish,” but their globist overlords probably require it. We’ll focus only on the facts. They say:
The masters student says he first realised that the world was flat when he was 18 and studying the properties of water. “Water couldn’t curl into a ball like that,” he told MyLondon [link omitted]. “Even with gravity it’s impossible. “I have done my research for a very long time,” he said.
Wowie — what makes water curl up and form little beads? Hint: it’s not gravity! After that the tabloid tells us:
Safvan explains that if the size of the earth is what scientists say it is, then there must be a certain amount of curvature in the globe per mile. [That’s true.] With that amount of curvature, it should be impossible to see the Chicago skyline from the opposite side of Lake Michigan. [Gasp!] “That’s a really famous example in the flat earth conspiracy,” Safvan explained.
Here’s a news story about The Lake Michigan Mirage. Make of it what you will. The tabloid continues:
Safvan believes that Antarctica is not at the bottom of the world and is actually the whole way round. That means at the edges of the world, the seawater is held in by a giant wall of ice. “Why do you think only researchers are allowed to go there?”
Good question! Let’s read on:
According to him, the Illuminati – a mythical secret society of global financiers and politicians – is responsible for keeping people in the dark. [As we always suspected!] “John F Kennedy – he used to talk about the Illuminati. And Michael Jackson. In JFK’s last speech he spoke about the ‘people who control the world’.” He believes NASA is an multi-billion dollar hoax designed to convince people that the earth is spherical, and in addition, he also thinks that the moon landings were faked.
Yes, NASA is a fraud! Another excerpt:
He said: “They can send Neil Armstrong in space in 1969. Why don’t they send people to the moon in 2019? Why don’t they send astronauts towards the moon right now? The photos from space are CGI.” [Presumably that’s computer-generated imagery.] Safvan claims that the video of the moon landing was removed from NASA’s website when people started to catch on.
Ah, that explains it! Here’s more
A common aspect of flat earthism is that subscribers are often religious and Safvan is no different. He believes God created humans and the theory of evolution was invented to encourage atheism. “We were not monkeys,” he said, “If we were not made by God, then why are we the only animals on earth who can reason?”
The article goes on a bit longer, but we’ve shown you enough. If you’re not motivated to explore the topic further, then there’s no hope for you. You’re free to continue living in your globist-evolutionist fantasy world, but the consequences will be eternal. It’s your decision, dear reader.
