I was contacted by a Spanish journalist who wanted to interview me about Flat Earth. He sent me some questions, which I answered, but it appears that he probably will not use my answers in his article.
Since I don’t want to have completely wasted my time, I thought I would post this little Q&A here on the blog…
May I ask you your sex/age?
I am a male, age 40.
Have you a university degree?
Yes, I have a 4-year Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.
What is your daily job?
I work for a small non-profit organization in the Western United States.
When did you start with your blog?
I started my blog, entitled Flat Earth Perspectives, in February of 2016. I don’t consider it to be anything special. I’m just an ordinary guy trying my best to present this information.
Why did you launch it?
That’s a good question. When I first started looking into this “Flat Earth” issue, there were so many pieces of evidence and ideas out there that I found it difficult to organize all of them in my own head. And so I started my blog to help me organize my thoughts on the subject and to help me understand them. After a person discovers the flat earth ideas, even though there might be an instant sensing that you are finally seeing or hearing the truth, it still does take a while for the ideas to sink in because of all the past globe-earth conditioning. Although the blog currently has a pretty good amount of information, it is far from being a complete Encyclopedia of the flat earth topic. There is still much more to cover. I also launched the blog so that others might learn of this.
You told me in our email exchange, “One is considered insane for even considering Flat Earth, and yet it happens to be the truth”? Have you experienced this sort of backlash?
Yes, I have witnessed and experienced the ridicule that people have toward the subject of “flat earth.” Although I have not really been attacked personally or called “insane” directly, I have watched the reactions of people around me when the idea is brought up. Most people consider the subject to be completely ridiculous, not far from believing in the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus. I also thought Flat Earth was ridiculous before I started to look into it. The subject is intensely ridiculed and there is often even anger towards the idea. There is anger because people don’t want to even consider that they have been so thoroughly fooled, or that so many people that they previously trusted — so-called scientists, teachers, authority figures, etc. — have been purposefully lying or have been fooled themselves.
Do you speak your views on this subject with the people around you (family, friends…)?
Yes, I have spoken to a couple of family members and several friends about the subject. In general I do not speak about it because it is such a touchy subject, but I have introduced the topic to people who I have known to be willing to question what they have learned. After you discover flat earth, it is hard to keep it to yourself, and so you feel compelled to share with at least one other person. In general, the people who I have talked to have been able to consider the evidence with an open mind, but I leave it to them to draw their own conclusions.
Could you explain briefly what is the main idea regarding the earth that you present in your blog?
I guess the main idea is that humanity has been lied to for centuries about the shape of the Earth, and that there is not one shred of physical, experiential, scientific, empirical evidence that the Earth is a sphere — all that globe earth theory has are fake images and outlandish, unproven theories. Meanwhile, there are hundreds upon hundreds of common sense, observable flat earth “proofs” that blow the ball-earth theory out of the water. It is all a matter of overcoming a lifetime of conditioning. I had to overcome it as well. But once you begin to break out of the conditioning, a whole lot of things about the current state of our world begin to make much more sense. The globe-earth deception is the biggest hoax of all time. It is a wide-ranging subject that effects more aspects of our lives than most people would imagine. It’s about more than just “the shape of the earth.”
What is the basis that you have to justify that earth is flat?
This is a difficult question to answer in just a short paragraph or two or three. There are hundreds of what we call “flat earth proofs.” Some of these proofs are direct or circumstantial evidence that we live on a plane as opposed to a sphere. Others are proofs in the sense that they expose the ball-earth lies. For instance, if I am able to show that NASA is trying to pass off a computer generated image as a real photo, then that is a proof in the sense that it shows a government agency lying to people about the shape of the Earth. All true flat earth proofs appeal to common sense in my opinion. Here are a couple of my favorite proofs…
No matter how high you go up into the air in a plane or in a hot-air balloon, the distant horizon always rises to the eye-level of the observer, and it is always perfectly horizontally flat all 360 degrees around the observer, showing absolutely no curvature. If the Earth were a ball, then the horizon would not rise to eye-level, and at some point the observer would have to look down to see the horizon.
I think my favorite flat earth proof is that Polaris, also known as The North Star, never moves from it’s position above the North Pole. The North Star always remains stationary, and all of the other stars make circular paths around it. If it was as the mainstream theory says, that stars are all suns and that they have all been moving at incredible speeds through space for millions of years, then how could The North Star remain stationary relative to our observation point, and how could all of our stars make the same circular path around The North Star night after night, year after year? In addition, if all of these so-called “suns” are supposedly moving outward into space, how would it be possible that all of the stars in all of the constellations would remain in the same relative positions to one another throughout the history of humanity? In other words, wouldn’t the constellations as we know them change their shapes? So this means that the stars are not suns, and they are not traveling through “outer space” like we have been told by “science.”
Another one of my favorite proofs is that the high Northern Latitudes and the high Southern Latitudes have drastically different kinds of animal and plant life, and therefore different climates. If the Earth were a ball, then the same relative Northern and Southern latitudes would have similar amounts of life because both poles of the ball earth would be exposed to the Sun the same amount of time as the Earth revolves around the Sun in space. The actual fact is that high Southern latitudes have surprisingly little life, it is very desolate… while the Northern latitudes are surprisingly vibrant with life, with a longer period of relatively warm Summer than most people think.
When was the first time you heard or read about this?
The first time I heard about flat earth theory was about 18 months ago when I ran across it on the internet. I was investigating another hoax on someone’s website, and I noticed that he kept referring to flat earth. At first I laughed at it just like most people. Then for some reason — I can’t remember why, maybe just for a laugh? — I looked into the material he was presenting and I was blown away by the evidence. I knew I was seeing the truth, and yet still I was thinking to myself, “Am I crazy?” This is one reason why you feel compelled to tell others about this… just to make sure you’re not the only one who can see it.
How do you explain that the majority of people think that they know that the earth is a spheroid?
I have covered that a little bit already in a previous answer, but most people believe that they live on a ball-earth because they have been bombarded with ball-earth propaganda since the moment they were born — globes in the classroom, images from NASA, the Universal Studios trademark… it’s endless. It is very difficult to convince someone to take a look at evidence that is contrary to something that they believe so strongly, especially if it means that they have been duped. People don’t want to believe that they are so easily duped. People also don’t want to believe that there are those who could be so evil that they would deceive all of humanity for their own ends. Most people who believe that the Earth is a sphere probably could not tell you why they believe it… they would probably say something like, “Well, I’ve seen the pictures of the ball Earth from space. Of course it’s a globe.” But what they don’t know is that all of those images of a globe Earth are faked. Every last one of them.
