This is Hilarious

Postby Chris Parr » 2017-01-07 05:54pm

Try to imagine a Flat Earther doing his best to convince people that all science and history—everything NASA has been doing, including the Moon landings and the Mars rovers and the Voyager space probes and all of it is nothing more than a huge, occultic conspiracy to keep everyone in the dark. On second thought, don't imagine it, just go to the Celebrate Truth channel on youtube. This guy is just so out there, I really think he could be Jack Chick's successor in the wacky realm of Christian conspiracies, where everything and everyone is a tool of Satan, and he is the lone voice of truth. Just replace the Catholic Church with Science and you've got it.

The flat earthers have been around for a while. One of those jokes that might have got slightly out of control.

Yes, for thousands of years apparently. And they won't go away.

Surely the belief in the Earth being flat must have disappeared centuries ago, and this is a re-emergence of the belief with timing that coincides with the appearance of crazy conspiracy theories?

I can't see it being a continuous passing of belief down through multiple generations, for hundreds of years, when knowledge of an avalanche of contradictory evidence (including proofs that an experimenter can conduct on his own) has been available in literature all that time.

You'd be amazed at the stupid shit people will believe and pass down through the generations in the form of religious indoctrination—which is what this Flat Earth nonsense is. They even claim that science is actually some kind of spooky mystical religion called "Scientism" and scientists receive knowledge directly from Satan himself, who also runs NASA and the United Nations which run the worldwide conspiracy that keeps the average person from seeing the "truth". All while ignoring pesky details like the fact that privately funded spaceflight is a thing now, and all the space exploration agencies from other countries around the world.
