Twitter interview by Michael (@nightstalker)
Hi John. I was wondering if you could help. I am doing a study for university on subjects like the Flat Earth theory. And was wondering if you would be interested in answering some questions for me? If you have an email I will send you the questions. You don’t need to answer all of them if you don’t want to. But as a novice to this subject my questions are fairly basic ones. Look forward to hearing back from you. Michael
Questions 1. How/When did you discover the flat earth theory? 2. How do volcano’s work on a flat earth? On a round one the heated lava comes from the earths core. 3. What happens when you reach the edge of a flat earth? Do you fall off? 4. What is at the bottom of a flat earth? 5. Is the flat earth out in space? What holds the flat earth up? 6. Do flat earthers believe that other Planets/galaxies observed by telescopes exist? Are there shape flat? 7. If the earth is Flat, Why are we not being told? What is being gained by lying about this?
1. How/When did you discover the flat earth theory?
I came across it back in 2013 but fell for the Flat Earth Society website which is full of disinfo like earth rising up at 9mps being how gravity worked, so this put me off until about march this year (2015).
2. How do volcano’s work on a flat earth?
Clearly molten rock is rising up from below the surface, and all drilling projects have reported temperature rise with depth drilled, as to why or how they work, I don’t know.
What happens when you reach the edge of a flat earth?
Well officially I don’t know as I have not been there, but the most common FE map shows Antarctica as surrounding the earth with the North Pole in the centre of the circle and South Pole being all the way around. My Twitter profile image shows what people have reported being all around the earth, so you can’t fall off if we’re surrounded by a 200ft high ice wall.
4. What is at the bottom of a flat earth?
No idea, again I’ve not been there, but according to many ancient scriptures they describe earth like a large island floating on the ‘waters of the deep’, I’m not into hearsay though so this is just speculation.
5. Is the flat earth out in space?
No, I don’t think so. I don’t see any evidence for the existence of the ‘vacuum of space’, The earth is stationary, this much I do know, and I ‘believe’ it’s most likely on a large ice plane, earth would appear like a melted puddle. No idea weather anything ‘holds it up’.
6. Do flat earthers believe that other Planets/galaxies observed by telescopes exist? Are there shapes flat?
I can only speak for myself, Yes I think they exist, I have seen them through scopes etc, I just don’t call them planets (as this implies a sphere) and I’ve not witnessed one turning as yet, so they remain circular discs of light (they are most likely spherical, but I can’t ‘know’ that for sure as yet). I go with what I can see, and I see moving circular lights, similar to the stars. Observation shows that they move in tandem with the moon, so I’m inclined to think they are not that far away.
Short but sweet (as it is my own footage)
7. If the earth is Flat, Why are we not being told? What is being gained by lying about this?
This is where religion, politics, corruption, control, manipulation, money and a whole host of other things comes into play. the main one for me is the control of people and their movements, if everyone believes that we are on a finite ball in space, then all resources are limited leading to scarcity and profit, second, if we believe we are on a ball in space that only billion dollar rockets and massive corporations can leave, not many people are going to be able to leave boosting the scarcity/overpopulation meme. Religious types will tell you that FE proves the existence of god as it puts us at the center of everything and makes earth far more special that just a grain of sand in an infinite universe of other grains of sand. I wouldn’t know about that – I’ve not met the god.
Here is a succinct but comprehensive 4 minute answer to the most common question asked of Flat Earthers, namely, if all the governments of the world are conspiring to lie and cover this up, what is the purpose!? Why would they do such a thing?
