Have you ever looked out on the horizon at sunset or stared off into the vast ocean and questioned the Earth’s supposed spherical shape? If the answer to this question is yes, you’re not alone. Questioning the force of “gravity” holding us onto this planet as it spins 1,000 mph hour while simultaneously traveling through space at 67,000 mph might not be as perplexing as you may think. And, if you have any doubt that considering the possibility of a flat earth is a category you stand alone in, rest assured that there is, in fact, a large group of people who stand firmly on this belief. Perhaps for good reason...The concept that the earth is spherical is one that’s been around for quite some time, dated as far back as 5th century B.C. when Greek philosophers first started questioning it. From a modern-day standpoint, the earth’s round shape seems almost undeniable given the footage from space that NASA dishes out on a regular basis. Despite the countless images and videos recorded by the renown space organization, there are still questions that keep some questioning.In pursuit of truth and at the head of this conspiracy, is a growing group of people who call themselves the Flat Earth Society. Members believe that gravity is a mere illusion, NASA is a cover-up, and our landing on the moon is a total hoax. And, if you’re envisioning a group of people living out in the middle of the desert wearing matching t-shirts standing behind this far-fetched idea, think again. Even NBA star, Kyrie Irving expresses his belief that the earth is flat and we’re all being lied to.Flat Earthers have laid out several in-depth ideas that really do leave you wondering if we’re all just a bunch of blind sheep. Let’s take a look, and then you choose if we’re still flying around the sun at 67,000 miles per hour on a giant spinning ball.Common senseAs previously noted, I’m sure you’ve found yourself simply looking around or traveling on the sea, scratching your head at the idea that the earth is round. Or, maybe you’ve found yourself gazing out from the window seat of a plane trying to imagine the plane flying across a spherical globe. Maybe this gut instinct isn’t wrong. Maybe, just maybe, the Flat Earth Society gets it right when they urge people to utilize their senses and make observations based on them to draw conclusions about the shape of this planet. If you’re still in need of a little more fact-based evidence, take a look at the Bedford experiment (https://wiki.tfes.org/Bedford_Level_Experiment) in which six-miles of water was traversed multiple times and found to be flat.Ice wallIf that experiment doesn’t grab your attention, maybe this foundational belief of a Flat Earther will. One of their greatest core values is that Earth is surrounded by a wall of ice. This ice wall keeps our oceans from spilling over, and as they put it, “protect us from whatever lies beyond.”If the question of night and day cycles are throwing you for a loop, consider that the Sun’s movement exists in a circular motion around the North Pole. Therefore, when it’s above you it’s daytime, and when it’s below it’s nighttime. A little more simplistic and easier to envision than this idea that the Earth is rotating on its axis.View from SpacePerhaps the most frequently asked question directed at those who believe in the Flat Earth conspiracy is in regards to space travel. The internet is filled with images of the Earth from space thanks to astronauts and organizations like NASA. But, if you think that these images are proof, Flat Earth Society quickly shuts it down, though they haven’t nailed down a clear motive, they chalk it up to a financial gain of some sort, obviously constructed in a Hollywood basement. And, I think we can all attest to a little distrust in the federal government if we’re being honest. Hello Pentagon Papers, Watergate and the list goes on...Sure, the idea of a flat Earth may still sound like an absurdity to you. OR maybe, we truly are a bunch of blind sheep that would believe a blue sky was red if told to. Check out our Conspiracy Socks collection and get a pair to show the world you know the truth!
