I’m not here to change your familiarization of the solar system. Instead, I want you to become aware that there is such a belief in existence. Usually, I do a bit of research before I edutain you. Prodigy of Mobb Deep once eloquently articulated, “I mix the food with the medicine.” Meaning, I will give you some facts along with literary, educational entertainment. In the end, you will make your own conclusion.
Oh yeah, as far as the conspiracy theories go this one takes the cake. I mean, these Flat-Earthers have provided some convincing geographical evidence. They have courageously accused NASA of playing Photoshop games. They blamed the elite governments of the world for hiding the truth for less than credible reasons. And they have made their best scientific disputes to back their contention that indeed, the earth is flat!
“God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the water, that it may separate water from water. God made the expanse, and it separated the water which was below the expanse from the water which was above the expanse. And it was so. God called the expanse Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.” – Torah 1: 6 – 8
Flat-Earthers believe that the earth is Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, yes, hold your head to this one, flat like a pie. Okay, not in those words but they do not stop there though. They consider that in reality there is no space because there is a dome over the planet, which they call a firmament. This impenetrable dome works like the glass over a snowglobe. Yes, people, according to the Flat-Earthers, we are trapped inside a bubble, and the government and NASA are aware of this. Not only that but they also claim that all of NASA’s photos of space are fake.
“And God said, “Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters and let it separate the waters from the waters.
So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome.”
And it was so.” Genesis 1: 6 -7
Forget about your third-grade science lessons about the sun and the solar system. As you know, the sun is the center of our galaxy. Furthermore, there used to be nine but now eight planets each with their atmosphere orbiting around the sun. If you’re going to study the legends of the flat earth, let go of this well-accepted theory. These guys claim that an airtight dome covers the surface of our flat planet. That the sun, moon, stars and what we consider as other planets are not planets. Alternatively, they rotate inside this dome over the face of the flat earth.
No, before you faint, get this extra bit. According to the Flat-Earthers, Anartica is the place where the world ends. Some say Anartica is a snowy ridge that surrounds the edge of the flat earth. That there is a drop or cliff edge where people and objects can fall off of the face of the earth. They present evidence of European explorers and American Air Force pilots who discovered this and reported it to the authorities.
“God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. And God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1: 8 – 10
According to them, the authorities, after finding out about living in a snowglobe, and the drop off at Anartica fired some nuclear bombs at the Sky/dome. Of course, the weapons pounded the firmament and exploded without causing any damage. According to them, the world leaders then signed a treaty banning any country from trying to colonize Antarctica. They blocked any further exploration of the frozen region which they have restricted to limited travel. Here are ten reasons why a growing community of people known as the Flat-Earthers are swearing to God and their mama’s mama that the planet on which we live is, in fact, a flat one, not the round globe we believe it is.*
