Sheesh – talk about your week for billboards…
The Flat Earth Society meets this evening at 6 PM, sponsored by Test The Globe KC. The meeting is being held at Barley’s Kitchen + Tap, at 11924 W 119th St. in OP.
Wondering whether the billboard was just a real life troll, I reached out to Jared Davis, the putative head of Test The Globe KC. Below is the transcript of our brief conversation:
So…I’m curious about your upcoming event and wanted more details; …was still curious about which scientists would be speaking about the “flat earth” speculation, and what evidence they might be presenting.
Also, I see you have not attended college, and so wondered what scientific evidence convinced you the earth is flat? In fact, where and when did you first hear about the idea?
Thanks in advance for your time.
Long story short there is no detectable rotation of the earth, Coriolis effect is a hoax. There is also no detectable curvature on the supposed ball we live on. We are told we can circumnavigate our globe in 24,901M. If that’s the case spherical trigonometry would provide us a formula of 8in of curvature PER mile SQUARED. Also we are told that the horizon line on flat water from eye level is 3miles. But with the help of ocular devices or optics we are able to see ships, shorlines at 10 to even up to 30 miles orso, So start there. Why does the north star never move if we are whobbling whirling and shooting through our solar system at over 66K mph and our solar system moves through the galaxy at over 550K mph but the pyramids are still aligned with orions belt after thousands of years.. Some things to think about. IF you would truly like to learn more I can recommend some good material.
Thank you for your questions Nick.
All interesting stuff, however…what about millions of hours of video shot from varying spacecraft showing the earth as a globe?
Im my oppinion its all bogus. We as flat earthers have sent up weather balloons. Over 110K feet up and ZERO curve at all. Horizon rises to eye level. Its all deception.
Ever think of how hard it would be to land an airplane against the rotation of the earth at 1000mph?
Did you know moonlight is cold? I can show you a simple experiments that proves moonlight is cool. Proving its not reflecting the sun
You mentioned science then resort to spacecraft showing earth being round. Im on the ground. And so are you. And with that being said there are plenty of scientific repeatable experiments we can do to prove we are not on a spinning ball.
So…taking you for your word, then…why does all of earth’s sciences (and scientists) claim the world is a globe. As an add-on, what –in your opinion–is causing “global” climate change? Or is there even such a thing?
Well for one they are all government scientists. Most of them masters at remembering “information” just to sound smart regurgitating it. As far as climate change ive honestly not looked too much into it. Gravity is a theory and cannot be proven. Density and buoyancy take gravitys place. The big bang is a theory which needs the theory of gravity for it to work. Theories on theories. What i DO know is there is no detectable curvature on our 24,901M sphere NOR is there any detectable movement. As we are told we are spinning on our axis at over 1,000mph
There you have it, one surmise seeking to supplant another: until you actually open the box the cat is both dead AND alive.
Flat earthers are not as rare as one might suspect, and many of them are beginning to feel persecuted. Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek) did a voice-over for a flat earth film.
So…if you’re looking for a place to escape the heat, not to mention that tiring non-gravity, there are worse places to sip a beer and hold a conversation tonight than Barley’s Kitchen + Tap.
