Flat Earthers Just Held A Conference And It Was As Ridiculous As You Think

Last week on November 9 and 10, the Flat Earth International Conference occurred in Raleigh, North Carolina. About 400 individuals are believed to have actually gone to, flying from around the globe to participate. And, well, it looked simply terrific.

The conference consisted of talks by different significant Flat Earth conspiracy theorists, some adoringly entitled with things like “ NASA and other Space Lies ” and” Waking Up to Mainstream Science Lies”. Tickets to go to varied from $109 as much as $249.

Now, questionable viewpoint alert, however while Earth is certainly not flat, I put on’ t always complain these individuals for satisfying up. Everybody likes to feel like they belong?

In the BBC video listed below, for instance, among the participants simply stated he wished to fulfill other similar individuals. I’d rather they had a various pastime, real, however some individuals feel alone, and simply require others to speak with.

That being stated, it would be great if this flat Earth thing remained kinda restricted to little occasions like this. In current times we’ ve had basketball gamers and artists speak up in favor of it, which you understand, isn ’ t fantastic. The occasion this year appears to have actually been a lot more popular than previous years.

.

And then you get to a few of the videos from a few of the talks, which are simply downright insane. To highlight one, below is a Q&A( nod to &Patheos for selecting this up) from the popular flat-Earther and YouTuber Mark Sargent. It ’ s odd.

.

If you put on ’ t wish to see the entire thing, here are some highlights. At 12 minutes in he responds to a concern about getting the Flat Earth theory into schools.

.

“ I believe we ’ re nearly at the emergency point, ” Sargent stated. “ Science is going to need to resolve this, easy and plain. They cannot evade us permanently. ”

.

My preferred bit, however, is when he responds to a concern about Elon Musk (no! not Elon) around 31:10. The concern itself is fantastic:

“ I was questioning, individuals like Elon Musk, who established the SpaceX program [Sargent groans in disgust], when they reach, if they in fact do produce a rocket efficient in reaching the dome so to hellip &speak; are they going to strike it and right away take off, or are they going to hug the edge? ”

.

Can Sargent react to that? Hell yes he can.

.

“ Okay formally, Elon Musk, anything that male states is a straight-out lie, ” he stated, to applause from the audience. “ Elon Musk simply pulls crap out of his butt on a weekly basis. ”

.

The entire thing simply seems like truly fantastic enjoyable , and I ’ m gutted I missed it. The conference is yearly , and there are occasions in London and Sydney coming up. See you there.
