On this episode of Those Conspiracy Guys we talk about the most controversial conspiracy topic there is; a belief system that has brother fighting against brother and has lit the internet ablaze in the last few years with growing numbers of evangelists online reaching record numbers, we are talking about the theory of The Flat Earth. From knowledge almost forgotten from ancient maps and turn of the century enlightened thrill seeking scientists and sociologists, the theory of the flat earth has had an ebb and flow on society. Saying we lived on a globe was once heresy and then it was absolute truth, and in the modern age questioned again by late 19th century scientists and flat earth enthusiasts
The evolution of the world map was only as quick as the advancement of the technology that was used to create them. Ancient mariners had very rudimentary maps of their local area, favouring size for their own dominion of course. But new methods of cartography showed a world few had seen and left artefacts to cast doubt on the true shape of the planet. Modern theories include accusations of informational obfuscation and hidden taunting messages in the logos of government and enterprise organisations. Manipulating scientific measurement equipment and fudging the numbers on satellite imagery is the explanation for the hidden flat plane aspect of the earth and new accusations fly every day.
Sea faring explorers both old and new have given in to the inexorable pull to circumnavigate the globe, but when reaching Antarctica they invariably run into some problems. Either multi national legal prohibitions or physical hurdles which make navigation impossible. Antartica remains a mystery and a source of many spurious allegations. Hard science is even put into question in the crucible of the Flat Earth mentality. The sinking ship effect and other optical and physical illusions and malformities mean that the world we expect is not fully there when we actually go to investigate. Atmospheric refraction, sinking ships, even fake moon walks and Einstein's special relativity is put into question in order to find the truth.
To imagine we live in a construct that is comprised of a huge flat disc, covered in water and land and surrounded by a giant ice wall, that hurtles through space at an impossible speed; its not a far stretch for some people and they have a certain science to prove their hypothesis. Or is it all post truth nonsense from internet people who want to shake up how people think about the world, questioning the very fabric of reality in an attempt to wake the population up to the fact that there are stranger things in reality happening than living on a flat infinite plane!
