Discovering the truth is not always difficult. What can be incredibly difficult is convincing others who hold a different opinion. I’ve studied enough controversial subjects over enough years to know that one who seeks the truth must keep an open mind. If one is not willing to consider information which challenges their beliefs, not matter how entrenched they may be, than one is doomed to ignorance.
And so … now don’t laugh … i decided (more like forced myself) to consider the ‘flat earth’ theory! I’m half embarrassed to admit that, but if the consensus is correct that the earth is a globe, then i had nothing to lose. Needless to say, i lost nothing except 23 minutes of my time watching the one of dumbest videos i’ve ever seen. Every “proof” offered in the video ignores all logic, much less science, but i was somewhat interested to hear the arguments these people present.
If you’re not aware, yes, flat earth theory is indeed a thing now. A quick YouTube search yields over 5 million results and many of the videos have been watched over a million times. What the hell? We even have nuts launching themselves in homemade rockets to prove the earth is flat.
Given the number of videos and the number of people that must be subscribed to flat earth theory, i have to wonder if there’s something deeper going on here besides the stupidity in their two dimensional world. Is this movement intended to be a distraction and, if so, from what?
Don’t just laugh at this kind of stuff and turn your back though. Question everything, no matter how insulting it may be.
