How Average People Fall For The Flat-Earth Conspiracy

This is how people become flat-eathers – and why they stick with their beliefs, despite the intense ridicule it brings.




  1. 6 billion to 500. I think I will stick with Team Globe. So sad. I’m sad for these people. Except for those making a ton of money off this cult!

  2. the earth is flat, you dumb fuck before 1500 years ago, and your great grandfather knew that, and it always have been. go with your fake ISIS propaganda's and gravity crap. lol why need God if gravity is there. hmmm and who is holding the sky from falling out or taking off, ahh some magical strings called gravity. LMAOOOOO

  3. Even if you sent these guys to the lower atmosphere and showed them the curvature, their brain would instantly work around it to find the craziest explanation to support their bias. This is what conspiracy theories do to impressionable minds. They also have zero concept of scale. They look at a large, flat plain and say 'There it is! The earth is flat!' Failing to understand that they're looking at a pin prick of an area that doesn't even cover 1% of the global landmass. A child can comprehend this, why can't they?

  4. Yes we live on the only flat planet in the entire universe….. But we could not possibly be the only life in the universe… Logic. Fucking retards

  5. Please do not compare "9/11 conspiracy theorists" to flat earter's! two totally different things!!!
    even "moon landing conspiracy theory" has nothing to do with flat earth!!!

  6. If you say, "Flat earthers are stupid!" Then everyone agrees.
    If you say, "Gay people are stupid!" Then you get hated.

    "Be who you are!" They said
    "It's okay!" They said

    Flat earthers have entered the chat.

    I saw a video where preachers where preaching to LGBT people, and they got arrested for talking even tho the LGBT people assaulted them! But when Logan Paul got up there and said what he did at the Flat earth convention, people said "but he had freedom of speech!"
    What is wrong with America!

  7. I think the video hit on something that is rarely brought up. Some of the people who fall for this and believe it, have already been believers of other conspiracy stuff already. So it's not really that far for them to believe in this.

  8. There are many many conspiracies, people that believe in them are from all walks of life some of them are almost fanatical in defending their belief. The motivation behind many alleged conspiracies isn't always clear, in the correct proportion for the effort required, or present at all in cases like the flat earth conspiracy. The people who fanatically believe in the flat earth do so not from a scientific need but from an emotional one.

    1: How elaborate, complex and expensive is the deception to perpetuate and maintain? EXTREMELY IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE
    2: How many people need to be be aware of the truth in order for the deception to be maintained? COUNTLESS AMOUNTS FROM NUMEROUS SECTORS OF SOCIETY
    3: What is the benefit or 'pay off' for maintaining the deception? VERY LITTLE ALMOST NONE IN PROPORTION TO THE EFFORT
    4: Who stands to gain the most from the deception continuing? SCIENCE & SPACE EXPLORATION BUDGETS – Which are almost inconsequential compared to ridiculously huge military budgets already being syphoned from the public tax coffers.
    5: Who stands to lose the most from the deception continuing? RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS (The richest institutions in the world the Catholic Church who are losing membership at an exponential rate could really benefit if the flat earth conspiracy was to be true)

    In terms of rating…. the flat earth conspiracy is extremely weak when compared to others ie the moon landing hoax, the 9//11 conspiracy. The fanatical and almost aggressive 'us & them' rhetoric from many flat earth believers demonstrates that the conspiracy is an emotional response that fills some void in their lives. They want and need to believe and hence common sense and logic is thrown out the window demonstrated by the promoting of only 'selective evidence' with an almost ignorant and irrational rejection of anything that doesn't support their belief. The flat earth conspiracy says a lot more about the people who believe it than it does about the actual geometry of the planet.

  9. Wow the experts aren’t much brighter than the flat ear there’s
    There are dozens of experiments that can be done (by any person) that absolutely prove not only the earth can not be flat (regardless of module) but must be round.

  10. Mark Sargent knows exactly what he's doing. No way he actually believes the earth is flat. He's making an absolute fortune with this. He's a great conman just like L Ron Hubbard

  11. Question: why Disney or Hollywood have never made a big film on the theme of the flat earth like that just for fun, with a lot of imagination ?? It's a stupid theme, the return to the future is also not real .. Because they are afraid to influence young and old on an issue that hurts .. Instead, they put the powers of the superheroes and other marvels ahead, everything is good for the negation of God. By the way, NASA and CIA have promised Hollywood that if they succeed in producing the Moon, the next US president will be from Hollywood, actor RONALD REAGAN

  12. Just going by this yahoo (1:37) and his 'rocket'; thre's a thing known as 'gravity', the amount of which is dependent upon the mass of the object. Saying this, a flat earth (even though these yahoos never bother to explain why all the other bodies – planets, stars, moons are ALL spherical…😫), how a 'flat' 'surface could possibly have the necessary mass necessary for this. .'place' (I'll refer to for earth).

    The other thing is – as you point out, these lun… erm erm, yahoos, I meant, all get their (mis)education NOT from school, NOT from studying, not reading science, but from… videos.

    A BIG problem of millennials is their disregard for anything prior to their birth ('ancient' history), they (foolishly) think they can find or everything… On the web.

    'Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it' (Georges Santayana)

    Or in a more 'modern' way;

    'All of this has happened before and it will happen again' (the Bastlestar's hybrid, Battlestar Galactica)

    It used to be when walking down the street (let's say your in London, in Hyde park) and you come across a speaker (like speaker's corner), – in just a few moments, listening to what a person says, l how they say it, their mannerisms,, etc, all this and more very quickly let us make a decision; 'this person's balmy'.

    But with the internet, the usual ways of 'reading'a person are not there – we just have their voice, and that, like everything else, can be edited and manipulatd, making a loon sound reasonable (such as the blind fool currently occupying their White House, and who's managed to fool many less intelligent people. But I digress).

    Another thing is a study which came it about a year ago found that petite of a crush mindset tend to sick with others if similar mindset.

    A person who believes such nonsense will only listen to others is the same mindset – good AND bad.

  13. If you have an iq 100 or lower your guaranteed to be a fucking idiot dumb enough to believe in flat earth it hurts my brain so fucking much to hear all of these people are so absurdly dumb and it’s just numbing

  14. I'm 55 years old, my records are flat but the Earth 🌎 is a sphere.

    Spherical mathematics don't lie but the Devil is a lier.

    Show me the edge of your flat Earth and jump off.

  15. The Earth is Not Moving! The heliocentric theory, literally “flying” in the face of direct observation, experimental evidence and common sense, maintains that the ball-Earth is spinning around its axis at 1,000 miles per hour, revolving around the Sun at 67,000 miles per hour, while the entire solar system rotates around the Milky Way galaxy at 500,000 miles per hour, and the Milky Way speeds through the expanding Universe at over 670,000,000 miles per hour, yet no one in history has ever felt a thing! We can feel the slightest breeze on a summer’s day, but never one iota of air displacement from these incredible speeds! Heliocentrists claim with a straight face that their ball-Earth spins at a constant velocity dragging the atmosphere in such a manner as to perfectly cancel all centrifugal, gravitational, and inertial forces so we do not feel the tiniest bit of motion, perturbation, wind or air resistance! Such back-peddling, damage-control reverse-engineered explanations certainly stretch the limits of credibility and the imagination, leaving much to be desired by discerning minds. If the Earth and atmosphere are constantly revolving Eastwards at 1,000 mph, how is it that clouds, wind, and weather patterns casually and unpredictably go every which way, often travelling in opposing directions simultaneously? Why can we feel the slightest Westward breeze but not the Earth’s incredible supposed 1,000 mph Eastward spin!? And how is it that the magic velcro of gravity is strong enough to drag miles of Earth’s atmosphere along, but weak enough to allow little bugs, birds, clouds and planes to travel freely unabated in any direction?

  16. We must take it on faith as mathematical proof doesn't exist.

    N.A.S.A. on Speed:
    The Earth's orbital speed around the sun is 67,000 m.p.h.
    The sun's orbital speed around the galaxy is 450,000 m.p.h.
    The speed of the ground beneath your feet, as a result of the Earth's rotation is
    600 m.p.h. at the latitude of Sheffield (53 degrees);
    1,000 m.p.h. at the equator.
    The Earth travels 584 million miles per year (one trip around the sun); that's

    1,600,000 miles per day; 66,667 miles traveled each hour

  17. Why don't you "above average" people show us "average" ones a REAL PHOTOGRAPH of "planet" earth taken from "space" with the telescopes available today?

  18. Uh, trying to figure out if the earth is flat by however you receive the information is the same as how you learned to "believe" that it was round. No there there there!

  19. The real problem here is that nobody wants to really look into this to prove it. The truth is that the Church of Rome gave us the globe earth and infinite universe 500 hundred years ago and they knew it was a lie then just like they know it is now. The real earth that we live on is round and flat. Just like the bible says it is. Is. 40:22 The Lord said that He sets upon the circle of the earth. The world that we are not aloud to go and see is the one just above us and around us this world is square and it has more land than we can imagine. There is also another world that lives below us from the center of our world is a hole that leads down to this world that we are not aloud to go and see. If you go to the wall that surrounds us you well be turned back by a nations army that controls that wall. We have been lied to all our lives and you have to dig deep to find the truth or just trust what the Bible says because you know our Father in Heaven created all this and that is where we come from. The whole world is wandering after the beast and most have no idea because they like me have been told all these lies since we have been born.Schools well not tell you and Sunday School well not tell you and TV preachers well not tell you the truth because it is all about the money. The one thing that Peter said not to do was to preach for money remember what Jesus said that freely you receive and freely you give because the kingdom of heaven can not be bought. Seek and you well find ask and it well be given to you if you want to know then ask and the Father he well gladly show it to you.

  20. More like how idiots in America that believe that nazis killed jews and hate them for it and yet they love nazis when it comes to nasa starting with von Braun. Over 1600 nazi scientists helped start nasa. We sent cia to steal the rocket plans from Russia if you idiots dont remember this look into it. So people that are so stupid and indoctrinated they love nazis when it comes to space but when it comes to killing jews they hate them. Hmmmmm. Really fucking stupid people in this world these days. No one thinks for themselves they just ask for answers. Lol. Useless cunts

  21. People that think for themselves instead of listening to NAZIS BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW NAZIS STARTED NASA. 1600 nazi scientists and van brauhn is a known nazi. So why is it ok to hate nazis when they kill jews but not when they fake space?

  22. Satanists and secret societies back then conspired against us to create a ball. Why? So people dont ask questions of what's beyond the ice wall at Antarctica plus to make sure you know you cant go anywhere but where they tell you. Why else would they have a 52 nation treaty? I've tried getting millions of dollars together to go out there and it doesn't matter how many millions you have YOU CANT GO. Dont ever listen to people like mark sargeant he infiltrated many of my flat earth groups i went to. He's a fucking idiot game designer alphabet agent.

  23. The best way to explain this phenomenon is "it feels good to be the wise old goat in a flock of sheep." Being a flat earther (or a conspiracy theorist) gives you a sense of purpose and feeds your attention starved personality.
