So, let’s get the obvious out of the way: Flat-Earthers simply do not believe the Earth is a spherical object. Their explanation? Instead of a “globe,” the Earth is a flat, disc-like shape.
This archaic belief harkens back thousands of years to an era before scientific advancements made it possible to prove the Earth was actually a spherical object.
A ‘Round Earth’ Is a Conspiracy to Debunk Religion
Although there’s a colossal amount of evidence that most religions and religious documents never mentioned the actual shape of the Earth to begin with, some flat-Earthers believe that NASA and other conspirators enforced their “round Earth” propaganda as a way of stifling religious beliefs.
As noted conspiracy theorist Eric Dubay puts it:
“But if the Earth is just one of billions of planets revolving around billions of stars in billions of galaxies, then the ideas of God, creation, and a specific purpose for Earth and human existence become highly implausible.”
Then again, flat-Earth supporters are also no strangers to propaganda themselves, so…
Gravity Is an Illusion
Sorry, Sir Isaac Newton, but not only are you completely wrong about gravity, but it’s possible you’re part of the conspiracy as well, according to flat-Earthers.
So how does Newton tie into the flat-Earth theory? Here goes: objects never accelerate downward, as Newton preposterously theorized, but rather the Earth is continually accelerating upward, propelled by the mysterious force known as dark energy.
NASA Is a Hoax
Yup. Sorry, John Glenn, Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and the thousands of scientists around the world (yes, around) who work at NASA – flat-Earthers aren’t buying your lies.
Mars Rover? Fake. Space travel? Total crock. The moon landing? Never happened.
To the flat-Earth crew, everything under the umbrella of NASA is just part of an elaborate game to keep everyone from knowing the real truth about our world.
