    The Neil Degrasse Tyson Rap Beef

    I've never followed rap but this is borderline hilarious if you take out the fact there is a person whom young people look up to claiming the Earth is flat.

    Ah yes. There's been quite a lot of discussion around that lately. I sometimes wonder if the whole Flat Earth thing is some kind of elaborate prank, I mean, I've been on their website and the theories are so full of holes that there's more holes than anything else. As for BoB, his behaviour reminds me of the following quote;

    "The idea is to be whispering, and not to gain the attention from the flock, but to get attention from the individuals. That's why I relate it to whispering. It's not something you can put on a big scale; you can't get sheep to attend to it. You need to have people who can stand for themselves. It is important to have a lot of space for yourself to be able to grow strong branches, which can stand in the most extreme surroundings."

    There was a president(don't remember who,saw it on history Channel) who believed enough in the hollow earth thing that he allocated a LOT of cash to it.

    Here on youtube


    So,next time remember even Presidents can be deluded(Not saying Trump in particular)

    There may be a correlation between that and the fact that people like for example BoB actually have a vote. Yeah, the Hollow Earth theory is also an interesting one. Wasn't it theorised by Byrd, an english officer who incidentally finished his life in a madhouse?

    I just don't see the point of this debate. I'm going to agree with Neil on this one, the Earth is round.

    The thread is about people that believe in a flat earth,and the question of why comes to mind.

    If the earth was really flat, why aren't we falling off the face of the earth?

    Re: The Neil Degrasse Tyson Rap Beef

    Yesterday, IFL Science posted a headline that was on the lines of "Who can seriously still believe in the flat earth theory" (something like that...I can't remember the exact wording). I have to agree. I can see how someone would use faith in a lot of other situations, especially when concrete, obvious proof isn't there, but people have not only gone around the world before, THEY DO IT ALL THE TIME. Yes, I'm shouting. That's how much I don't understand people who believe the world is flat. Like, you can literally buy a plane ticket or a boat ticket that will take you around the world.

    The earth actually is flat, but it's flat in three dimensions...

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.
