NBA Basketball Player, Cavs’ Kyrie Irving: ‘they lie to us’ and ‘Earth is flat’

Cavs’ Kyrie Irving believes ‘they lie to us’ and ‘Earth is flat’

Some people just have different views of the world. Count Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving among those people.

Irving believes the Earth is flat. As in, there’s no curvature of the planet. Flat. Like an actual map.

“This is not even a conspiracy theory,” Irving said during a “Road Trippin’ with RJ & Channing” podcast, with teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye. “The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat”.

“It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.”

The three were discussing conspiracy theories — on an airplane — when Irving brought up the subject to Jefferson and Frye.

Irving told ESPN’s Arash Markazi on Friday that he holds true to his belief.

“I think people should do their own research, man,” Irving told ESPN. “Hopefully they’ll either back my belief or they’ll throw it in the water. But I think it’s interesting for people to find out on their own.

“I’ve seen a lot of things that my educational system has said that was real that turned out to be completely fake. I don’t mind going against the grain in terms of my thoughts.”

Among Irving’s other conspiracy theories, he says the lunar landing was fake and that there possibly has been contact with alien life forms.

“The fact that they can make all these movies with alien descriptions, they’re not just going on strictly brainpower and this is just creative things that we’re going to put out to everybody,” he told Jefferson and Frye. “For what? All to put an alien movie out, for what?”

    It appears there is the problem with explaining gravity using the Flat Earth model. Using Newtonian mechanics and assuming a Flat Earth, the formula for the time of swing of a pendulum, for example incorporates ‘g’ (about 9.81 m/s/s). This value is an average because ‘g’ varies as where we are on the earth. Rockets are launched using Newtonian equations of dynamics which defines acceleration, momentum, falling bodies and terminal velocity – and the formulas work very well, or we would not be able to launch a rocket. Newton based his theories on a spherical earth, a ball. But I think it could work on a Flat Earth model also if the North Pole is seen as the centre of gravity of a Flat Earth model. The variation of ‘g’ could also be accounted for. But this assumes that ‘gravity’ exists and density and buoyancy alone may not explain adequately why heavy objects fall to earth. Not all Newtonian formulae are proven. For example, the mutual attraction of two bodies using the universal gravitational constant ‘G’ is questionable. Cavendish’s experiment has never been replicated to this day as far as I know, and goes unchallenged by those who want to believe it to be true to support the accepted world view.
    I think we need some concrete experimental evidence to support that density/buoyancy argument. It is insufficient to simply replace the gravity paradigm with words that appear to make sense. Perhaps we do not need to abandon all Newtonian gravitational arguments. We are on the frontier of a huge paradigm change and it will not be easy. One of the best books I have ever read is Thomas Kuhn’s ‘The Structure of Scientific Revolutions’ and shows clearly the mechanism of change and it’s a rocky road. He suggests that the whole history of science is based on error (e.g. Phlogiston theory).
    I would like to ask for advice on this from any person interested in flat earth physics.
