More celebrities have admitted that they believe the Earth is actually flat

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal is the latest celebrity to admit that he believes that the Earth is flat – joining a bafflingly large list of famous people who believe the conspiracy theory.

Is it a new trend – like having a dog you can fit in your handbag?

‘Shaq’ joins fellow NBA star Kyrie Irving and others as he said on his podcast, ‘I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity.

‘Have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.’

Former WWE wrestling star AJ Styles said – in the wake of comments by Kyrie Irving – that the theory shouldn’t be discounted.

Styles said, ‘I’m not a ‘flat-earther. I’m just saying there is some stuff about it that makes sense. I don’t think you can handle it.’

NBA star Kyrie Irving said in a podcast, ‘This is not even a conspiracy theory. The Earth is flat… I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.’

Other NBA players came out in support of him, with the Golden State Warriors Draymond Green saying: ‘I can make a round picture with my iPhone today on the panorama camera and make it look round.

‘So, I don’t know. I’m not saying I think it’s flat or round. I don’t know but it could be.’

Scarily, the internet is full of people who believe the earth is really, genuinely flat – inspired by bonkers YouTube channels and weird e-books.

Many are not religious fundamentalists – or mad – but instead believe that we’re victims of a massive conspiracy, orchestrated by NASA, to fool people into believing the Earth is round.

And celebrities believe it, too – and they’re not all as eccentric as former reality star Tila Tequila (remember, the one who was kicked off Celeb Big Brother for posing in front of Auschwitz?).

Last year, rapper B.o.B. – aka Bobby Ray Simmons Jr – revealed that he thought the Earth was actually flat.

Simmons said, ‘No matter how high in elevation you are…the horizon is always eye level…sorry cadets…I didn’t wanna believe it either,’ he wibbled.

‘Don’t believe what I say, research what I say. I’m going up against the greatest liars in history … you’ve been tremendously deceived.’

The original Flat Earth Society fizzled out after the Soviets launched Sputnik – a satellite which reappeared at intervals and seemed to prove the Earth was round – but a new, defiant group of Flat Earthers have reappeared on the Flat Earth forums.

The forums are adamant the Earth is flat – but very emphatic about the fact that it IS NOT carried through space on the back of a giant turtle.

Current Flat Earthers adhere to a wide variety of beliefs – some truly insane – but some of the core beliefs of current Flat Earthers are below.

Here are ten reasons people believe the Earth is flat

1. The Earth looks flat – so it must be flatHonestly, this is one of their reasons – and the main one cited by intellectual heavyweight B.o.B. in his recent meltdown.2. It’s cheaper to fake journeys into space than it is to journey into space

And a global conspiracy has been embezzling all that money ever since the 50s

3. Satellite photos are ‘easily faked’

And the global conspiracy has been doing so for five decades.

4. ‘Day’ and ‘night’ are created by the sun orbiting in a circle above, then beneath the North Pole

The sun also moves sideways – hence winter and summer. They think of everything!

5. People who think they’ve flown round the Earth have just travelled in a big circle round the North Pole

The Earth is like a pancake, with the North Pole in the middle, see.

6. It all stays together because there’s a big ice wall round the edge

The oceans don’t spill off because there’s a wall of ice – called Antarctica. The Flat Earth society admit to being ‘curious’ as to what lies beyond this.

7. Gravity doesn’t exist

Instead, the Earth is constantly accelerating upwards, so the force of gravity is like being pushed into your seat in a car, see?

8. Earth is accelerating upwards due to ‘dark energy’

It all tallies with Einstein, the maniacs boast, as Einstein whirrs gently in his grave.

9. Photos from aeroplanes look curved because of the windows

… and satellite shots look rounded at the edge due to the ‘spotlight’ under the sun, which is only a few thousand miles up.

10. An experiment proved that a six-mile stretch of water was flat

Except it didn’t really. It was famously misread by previous Flat Earthers, who weren’t the brightest crayons in the pack.

  1. you know the moon is flat also. even though we can see it with our own eyes. The moon is flat. NASA using smoke and mirrors to create a circular shape 24/7/365 for many years just to make sure they hide the fat that the earth and the moon is actually flat. all the other bodies in space are flat also. there is nothing round in space.

    • And what are you? A farting pedophile who assault a child of six years, are you happy now ?My mother dont let me talking with creepy strangers, but you are an exception so try more, lame creature ! Sorry that you have a flat head, I dont want to upset you, you flying saucer head! But you can think positive, you dont need a saucer for soup, you can put your soup directly on your flat head and through the South Pole hole the soup will flow directly in your guts.

    • And another one for you : If they take inspiration from pictures and maps it makes sense for them to believe that the Earth is flat. And the basketball ball is flat in a 2D picture 🙂

  2. if your traveling on a plane or even higher in a building or hilltop and actually look you can tell the earth is round just look at the sides of the horizon are round

  3. So many problems with this idea. One, the way the size of the earth was calculated in the past was that they noticed the sun wasn’t directly overhead in both places. One place it was and the other was 7 degrees off. From that and knowing the distance of the cities, they got close to actual size of the earth. Point is if earth was flat, there wouldn’t be that difference.
    Two is that when observed in labs, when particles come together they take a spherical shape. How could something flat be spinning and stay flat? Out in space, many objects take a spherical or elliptical shape and their gravity causes the space to bend.

  4. Wow America. You really need to invest more in education. If the earth was flat you wouldn’t have satellites. If the earth is flat and not round how come all the other celestial objects i can see with my own eye’s (i.e. moon, sun stars) are round? And the earth just happens to be flat? People are too gullible.

  5. The great Pyramid encompassed the earth’s dimensions in its own shape and volume.
    The Antithykera mechanism and the Mayan calendar were both engineered to include the precessional axis wobble of every 24,000 + years or so.. Older yet advanced societies knew it simply from their own calculations.
    So what is this psy op all about? Just distraction.. Keep the masses arguing amongst themselves.

  6. And I thought Dr. Ben Carson was wacky because he thinks that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built by the biblical Joseph to store grain!

  7. This stuff bothers me every day! Because I cannot rap my brain around this level of dumb! It is an insult to the people who work hard at JPL and Houston control on the ISS!
    The best one is gravity is caused by our flat world accelerating upward! Dark matter too? This is truly the dumbest s#&t on the internet!

  8. Did you know that ll these morons are missing some brains and some of them like Shaquille O’neal are muslims and still believe that Mecca is the center of the Earth?

  9. The history books tell us that Christopher Columbus made a guess in 1492 that the Earth was round and if he sailed west he believed he would eventually reach india and the far East which had already been identified by Marco Polo , I don’t think that if it was flat he will olsa have discovered America .

    • Parallels Identified those days by Marco polo but never written about for the benefit of the doubt and lucky us these days it was the right choice too make,otherwise the colony for the ninth would be delayed,and we don’t want that too happen.greetings a small particle from the hidden truth.
