Flat Earth rising: meet the people casting aside 2,500 years of science

I’m here today to tell you that your
government is keeping you divided. With trust in institutions in its
all-time low and the concept of objective truth
seemingly harder to agree upon, conspiracy theories are flourishing. The people that are
perpetrating this hoax and the people that really run this world, they’re not gonna
let go of all that power easily. No one has an official nomination for a trusted source
of mainstream media. The mother of all conspiracies
is surely the Flat Earth. There is no curvature on this earth,
it cannot be measured. But how do you know
that you live on a globe? Can you prove it? I know I’m not crazy so why should I
be bothered if somebody says I’m crazy? We’re not spinning around on the ball. It’s not a clear-cut line. Does the horizon stay to your eye level? I can’t remember. Or do you simply
trust the evidence you’ve been shown? Assuming such a lie would be too big. Well, I can see the curve. Yeah, sure you can. Over the past few years, Flat Earth
communities have sprung up online. Not only sharing research supporting their
theories but often incorporating conspiracies that for many are far more
dangerous. From vaccinations to Sandy Hook. But when I visited truth-seeker
Dave Murphy near his home in Sussex, he seemed keen to distance himself from any
formal grouping of globe denials. I’m not part of any movement, I’m just a guy who
knows the earth’s flat. Describe for me if you will,
what your beliefs are? I personally believe
that we live on a big disc of water, there’s a North Pole in the centre
and all the continents are strung around it. And the edge is what we call Antarctica. Beyond that, who knows what’s down there? So this is where anywhere is beyond here, there isn’t anywhere …
Does that make sense? If this is a realm over 3D space and time, well there can’t be anything
outside it because that implies, you know, 3D space and time. But that only applies here. Right, I wonder if you could describe to me
your circumstances … When you started
to look into this? I’ve spent the last 15 years
looking for truth. I was at 9/11, you know, I stood there watching it and accepted it for what
I saw. Just like everybody else. It wasn’t until about four years later that
I figured out that it can’t have happened the way I saw it. I mean I was
having my midlife crisis about that time. Everyone gets to that point in their
life, you know, around about 40 odd that you start wondering, you know, what is
this all for? What am I doing here? Dave took me down to the beach to show
me the most simple Flat Earth experiment. A curvature calculation. Batteries? I took the battery out. There should be just under three feet
of curvature, hiding of the lighthouse. Do you feel like the mainstream
scientific community will concede to …? They can’t because it means then almost the
the breakdown of civilisation. If you realise that the Earth’s flat
well then hang on, why are we sending things up into space? There is no space,
where’s all this money going to? What’s the point? The reason behind all
this deception is they’ve relegated us to a microbe, a speck of dust in an
infinite void with nothing in control. Powerful people who have got more money
than us, can now say, ‘you do as we say’. How did your family take the news? My son went off and did his own research, came back and he said,
‘yeah, now I agree with you.’ And my ex-wife
actually thinks I’m crazy, she thinks I’m mentally ill. It’s not craziness, it’s
literally what a true scientist should be like. Should be open to everything. Before you became a flat-earther,
did you feel part of society? Now increasingly I’ve
removed myself from this society because it’s a wicked society, it’s evil in places. You just have to turn on that
hypno-box, you know, in the corner and every night you see the wickedness coming out of it. Do you ever
have any doubt? I’ve seen so much now that I can’t, I can’t see
it any other way. Why am I standing here?
I’m a 50-year-old man, I could easily be sitting at home watching the Formula One or some
other mindless activity. In Hyde Park Speakers’ Corner, truth-seekers gather to
spread the word. There are no spinning balls in space. Balls in space come down. Play a game of football,
eventually that ball will come down. There’s no ifs and buts. There’s one up and there’s one down. This is Roxanne Glen,
a relative newcomer to the world of Flat Earth activism. The first time I came here and the first time
I got heckled by a bunch of trolls, I really had to question what
it was I was doing. I realised, you know, this is actually an argument
to fight that I am having here. Is this my fight? And then I went home, pondered on it and went back to my
mundane job, doing my mundane tasks and realised that no, it is. The more you genuinely
take time looking into it, the more it’s like opening up Pandora’s box,
it’s like, you peel back one lie and then you realise, ‘oh they haven’t been
completely honest about that either’. But then why lie? Why do all that? Why not just be honest with us? Is this a growing movement? Yes, yes. I think it is very much so. The public interest in it I think it’s definitely
growing as well, especially with the
children, they’re not buying into everything that they’re shown on TV, like I did when I was that age. What’s changed? We didn’t have YouTube. Thanks to Trump, they are all walking
around going, ‘you are fake news!’ If someone like Trump wasn’t in
office, I don’t think even people would be critically thinking about the media. Roxanne and her friends have been on
tour across the UK for the past seven weeks. You must get some funny looks. Yeah, but good looks as well. There was a lot of people who beeped
and gave us a thumbs up. Really? I was invited to the end of tour party
at a school in west London. Complete with speeches, music
and a glacier mint cake. Despite their vocal distrust of the
media, several people were keen to share their ideas. So pretend there’s a dinner
plate stood in the middle so on the outside, you spin it,
if there’s something outside you’ll zoom off. Right. Stood in the middle, you don’t. And then I did the curvature calc
and I realised that the curvature calc said 240ft
should have been missing from a 30ft elevation. And a 123ft from the 1ft observations
and that’s what clicked then because that’s 49%. I’ve gone as far back as the Egyptian bible
and the scriptures and I am reading these and to me,
when I’m reading these words, you know, these aren’t the words of someone
who’s trying to deceive us. These are the words of someone who was trying
to help and guide us. So imagine spinning at 1000 miles/hour, at the edge of a roundabout,
how tight would you have to hold on? I feel like I’m holding on pretty tight now. We’ve got to the end of this tour now and we’ve positively started a massive wave
of conversation for people. This is not about Flat Earth
but it’s about you. We’re trying to all find that feeling, what we’re all missing, which is love. So in the name of love,
let’s keep telling people that it is flat. Thank you, thank you. Do you think that the Flat Earth provides some
clarity where previously there has been fuzz and mess and complexity? Yeah, I do think it provides a bit of clarity. I am on a journey, I’m also going
through surgery at the moment, on my face, because I got a fracture on my face
that no one knows about. Yeah, I was involved in a horrendous attack, still standing, nearly lost my life though. Went to court, got done for it, been there, done, that was back in 2008. I was knocked out for three weeks by the hospital to repair, in a drug-induced coma. And yeah, I’m still standing. Still fixing myself from that and yeah that’s got nothing to do with Flat Earth
but you know … But doesn’t it though, I mean do you feel
that this there’s … is there’s something in …? Maybe so. It may have changed, kind of your outlook, have changed your willingness
to investigate things. I mean, who knows, right? Maybe so, yeah. I do believe that, I do believe that
sometimes your life experiences mould you into the path you end up going on, or
the pursuit of truth that you’re going on … So, yeah, you’re probably quite right with that. For Roxanne to still be undergoing surgery for the physical scars of domestic abuse a decade ago, was shocking. To say nothing of the emotional impact of such a breakdown in trust. Singing: We know now, that the Earth’s not round That it don’t spin round because the truth’s been found. Despite the celebratory feel to
the event, this was still a fairly small gathering
of committed activists. For a taste of the Flat Earth on a bigger scale, I flew to Denver, Colorado, to join 800 paying guests at the Flat Earth International Conference, the biggest of its kind to date. The world’s going to watch,
they’re going to be amazed, they’re going to be blown away at not the conspiracy theories,
the conspiracy facts. We’re all with the facts. Next to the main auditorium, flat-earthers from all over
were exhibiting their wares. And we leave it alone and it will just be still. How can that hang upside down
anywhere in the world? That’s down to gravity though, isn’t it? Well, in the imagination. It’s opposite, and we’re going to be moving
in opposite directions. and that’s where you get … We’re going to get stuck. The day and night. I mean, how does a lunar eclipse work? That I am not sure about. This is a rocket. What was the idea with this? Basically I just wanted to do a man
a vertical launch. But what’s that got to do
with the flat earth? Nothing, nothing. In the conference itself,
a familiar face was drawing the crowds. So what dropity is, it’s the tendency
for things to fall when you let go of them. You’re a bit of a star here, right?
I mean, come on, don’t be modest. Lots of people have come up to you. I mean people come up to
me and said they’ve come all the way from, you know, Sweden and places
like that just to see me. We’ve got a photographer now. He can’t move anywhere, he’s the man isn’t he? He says the truth. ‘He says the truth’, there you go,
what do you think of that? I am just doing what I have to do. Dave, I love you. Thanks a lot, bro. You better get back to your adoring fans now. I don’t want to sort of take
any of your time … You shut up. Do you want me to slap you? Dave wasn’t the only star attraction
on the bill at this Flat Earth Woodstock. Another speaker,
Denver’s own Bob Knodel. How is everybody doing? Beside your eardrums are bleeding, I understand. Bob, great to meet you. Nice to meet you too. Unlike many of the people I met at the conference,
whose Flat Earth beliefs stem from a literal interpretation
of the Old Testament, Bob’s approach is based on scientific
rationalism. I’ve always been a little bit different,
I’ve always seen the world a little bit different. I was put in special schools, they said that you know
I had a genius IQ which, whatever, but I had a hard time relating
to other people and the world in general. I never was able to understand why
the world seems to be so messed up, you know? Why all these wars, why all the
killing, why do they spend so much money on things like this, when they could just
spend that same money and fix the problems? If you were shown conclusive
proof of a globe earth with your own eyes, how would you feel and would
you be able to adjust your viewpoint to match? Honestly, I would be relieved,
I would be because that would mean that this nightmare is over. Is it a nightmare? It is. It is a nightmare because we’re going against
the entire belief system of the entire world. I certainly do not want to
be in the position that I’m in, you know, being ridiculed, being fired from jobs … Nobody wants that
and the only reason I do it is because I truly care about the
future of humanity. Bob took me up to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, on the edge of the Rocky Mountains to cast a view out over the flat horizon. What are your hopes and expectations for
the future of Flat Earth? My hopes are for all this
to go through as seamlessly as possible, without, you know, bloodshed and
without you know too much conflict. But the people that really run this world
are not going to let go of that power easily. In the short term, things are
going get a lot worse before they get better but when things do start getting better, we’re going to go into what I would term
a more utopian type of world instead of a dystopian-like world
that we’re clearly headed for. Everyone I’ve spoken to, when you really boil it down, what people want is
the same as what anyone wants, to have some sort of agency to be relevant to
something, to have love, all these things. Yes. Do you feel the Flat Earth
really delivers that in a way that the globe earth never could perhaps? Of course people are going to want to feel like they’re part of something
and not so insignificant, you know, that makes perfect sense. So yeah, when you
realise that and you realise that this world is much more special and
you are much more special, then yeah, it makes a huge
psychological impact, absolutely. Some have referred to the Flat Earth as
a post-truth landscape and whilst this may be meant mockingly, it also reveals a very present need
for finding common ground in the face of irreconcilable
differences. If we’re to address the broader
polarisation of society, attempting to understand,
empathise and build trust, are surely important tools to use whatever the shape of your world.

  • The earth is round, take a picture of Saturn. Look how the shadow is completely behind it because of the sun. Then you see the light hitting on Saturn shows the roundness of Saturn. The earth is a spinning globe, if you were to wait for it to spin all the way Continents would move right. There is no way the earth is flat and almost impossible, the farthest we have dug in the earth is 12 kilometers, if the earth was flat we would hit bed rock or the core. Anyways my point is the earth is not flat, and its most likely a globe, do not prove me wrong.

  • We can't understand English. We want to Bengali discussion.

  • “If the Government or NASA had said to you that the Earth is stationary, imagine that. And then imagine we are trying to convince people that ‘no, no it’s not stationary, it’s moving forward at 32 times rifle bullet speed and spinning at 1,000 miles per hour.’ We would be laughed at! We would have so many people telling us ‘you are crazy, the Earth is not moving!’ We would be ridiculed for having no scientific backing for this convoluted moving Earth theory. And not only that but then people would say, ‘oh then how do you explain a fixed, calm atmosphere and the Sun’s observable movement, how do you explain that?’ Imagine saying to people, ‘no, no, the atmosphere is moving also but is somehow magically velcroed to the moving-Earth. The reason is not simply because the Earth is stationary.’ So what we are actually doing is what makes sense. We are saying that the moving-Earth theory is nonsense. The stationary-Earth theory makes sense and we are being ridiculed. You’ve got to picture it being the other way around to realize just how RIDICULOUS this situation is. This theory from the Government and NASA that the Earth is rotating and orbiting and leaning over and wobbling is absolute nonsense and yet people are clinging to it, tightly, like a teddy bear. They just can’t bring themselves to face the possibility that the Earth is stationary though ALL the evidence shows it: we feel no movement, the atmosphere hasn’t been blown away, we see the Sun move from East-to-West, everything can be explained by a motionless Earth without bringing in all these assumptions to cover up previous assumptions gone bad.” ~ Allen Daves?

  • Man this is way better than any stand up comedy show😂😂😂

  • earth flat
    mars round
    saturn round
    jupiter round
    uranus destroyed
    pluto round
    neptune round

    hotel trivago

    funny how nature works .

  • I knew it was flat when I was in grade school. When they made a big deal out of discrediting the people of old who knew it was flat.

  • 2:10 not reallly

  • You guys know it's only 300 years of history….

  • 2500 Years of Pseudo science…

  • "The Earth is flat"
    Every other planet:The question is-
    Are you really a planet?

  • It's ok flat earthers, I get it. In fact I think maybe one plus one doesn't equal two. Maybe they just want us to think it does, maybe 1+ 1 actually equals 3….. or 4.

  • Self-deception at his worse.

  • HellyWood are making image in our brains with computers animations. It was very simple trick. What said stanley kubrick?
    I believe in civilisations underground. Paracas (Perú) we have museum of skelet heads.. And we have answers

  • 99% of humanity want living in lies. Obedience of system. Without asking .. Consumption tv brainwshing leave stupid humanity

  • The people in this video are courageous geniuses. Keep up the good work!

  • In the late 60's man went to the moon…2019 NASA lost the technology to go to the moon. WTF? LOL

  • 1:50 dude is based

  • How does a flat earth hold onto its atmosphere? The earth is a sphere and the atmosphere is held by gravity wrap around the earth like the peel of an orange. The atmosphere has a pressure of 14.7pounds per square inch, that is over a ton for every square foot. If the earth was flat then there would be an outward atmospheric pressure of a ton per square foot
    at the rim of the earth's disk. Beyond that would be the vacuum of space which would not hold back such a force and the atmosphere would disperse into space.

  • 1,572,204. Views So Far August 26 – 2019. Video 3.

  • Thing is these people are basically putting their lives and insanity on the line in a way that once they're "proven" wrong their lives would have no meaning whatsoever where as I as a globe believer if it turned out the world was flat it wouldn't bother me one bit! These people need help. One day their lives will have no meaning.

  • If the Earth Is flat why cant I see the sun at night? Should it not be off in the distance lighting up the other half of the plate LOL.

  • I want to press that rubber ball earth too lol, it has to be satisfying?

  • earth is a realm, a holographic realm aka matrix


  • Flat Earthers??? come on man whats next they're going to be triangle earthers


  • PhD Nobel prize winning physicist: The earth is a sphere.
    Some guy: the earth is flat

  • Im just glad that theres no Asian Flatearther were too smart for this sh*t.

  • More like casting aside 2'500 years of Indoctrination

  • So older NASA scientists claim the information from every Apollo mission is gone and the process of rebuilding it is “too tedious.” But the younger ones who weren’t even alive when we went there say, “We are working on how to get past the “Van Allen Belt” and claim we would have to have 6 feet of lead surrounding the astroNOTS in order to not be killed going there and we still have to come home through the same belt.
    Then all the green screen videos of a ridiculous “scientific project” is being filmed from the International Space station where the two or three astroNOTS are doing their “project” when one guy doesn’t realize this is happening and his harness is fully exposed and so are the cables suspending him.
    Sure, NASA in Hebrew means to deceive.

  • gravity = lie stoopid i no stoopid

  • other planets also lies

  • if we dig straght down we might fall of earth like minecraft

  • global warming also lie if global warming real ice wall would melt then we fall off

  • lunar eclipse is also conspiraciy!!!

  • how we get 4 seasons

  • columbus was paid so he didn't say he saw the ice wall

  • why can't new zeland see ice wall?!?!

  • dinosours die because when medior hit it made flat earth wobble

  • flaterds….FUCKIN LOSERS

  • I can explain how gravity works. I just uploaded a video about being in the Movie Behind The Curve and being made fun of. Droppity is from the flux capacitation from the transverse field in the combined Over-Unity Toroid. Ditch Bob. I was in the first year of the Houston ISD Vanguard program as a genius in 4th grade. Look it up! Forget Bob,he wasted his chance in the movie and made us all suffer ridicule, on purpose.

  • So many globe bangers shilling for free

  • damn…i'm finally clear…i thought it was a giant enema hose…that explains the van allen radiation really well now..

  • I just lost brain sells

  • Your not crazy bro. Closed minded people are crazy

  • There are many people who cast aside 2,500 years of science. They are called the religious

  • People who pay attention to flat earthers are worse than flat earthers. Valuable mind/brain power is being wasted.

  • flat earthers; answer one question and will find answers to all their questionings. why is their a northern sphere if you take photos looked north from the north hemisphere and then when you come south to the southern Hemisphere and look southern sphere you can find the southern point so it is answered your theory of flatness cannot be so as you would not be able to find the southern sphere point.

  • Flat Earther = Flat Brain

  • I think we should ALL (AT LEAST) just turn OFF our HEATER !!

  • Think about how the sun is?? Is it flat no❗jus because wen u look in the distance & being able 2 see it from a far way doesn't mean it isn't round

  • Think about how huge the earth is u won't bhe able to see the curve Fromm the human eye..look at the other planets❗y would they bhe round and earth isn't flat jus doesn't add up

  • And where does all the water go if earth is flat it can't jus settle if it does that means its other pieces of land blocking it off that we have not discovered

  • The reason FE is gaining momentum is because many people are researching the globe earth lie. And the FE truth. It's flat. GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS ADMIT FLAT EARTH.

  • The Earth is Trapezoid

  • How was is that our ancestors, with less technology then we have these days, hundreds of years ago were able to establish that the earth was round.

  • question if your at the north pole as high as you can go. how come you can't see the south pole. You said the earth is flat well then, you should be able to see both poles if the earth was FLAT ?. So far, we can see half way. From one pole to equator ? please help explain this !

  • I am a flat earth believer.

  • it would've been so easy to do a hit piece but this was very fair. good job.

  • So…if you send a sailboat out with a 500 foot high sail…and watch it go "over" the horizon…why does the boat disappear before the sail??…just curious…kinda almost seems like you could see it dock in Espania…I mean if it left the east coast of the USA…

  • the flat earth society has members all around the world.

  • flat earthers are insane

  • Yeah right… Bob went to 'special' schools, but not because of any IQ involvement.

  • the flat earth socity has its own neil de grasse-tyson?….[don't take me too seriously please ,it is only a joke…nothing more.]

  • First world problem

  • The Onion is putting a lot of effort into these new videos.

  • For flat earther: can you explain me how the mountains can errupted? And do you believe the earth has a layer of magma(earth core)?

  • Can we send this people to space?

  • Do they also play bingo at the end of their conferences?

  • Yes Roxane ; “ why lie” could you please tell us why they would lie about this bc I haven’t heard any flat earther offer an explanation as to why the government would go through all this trouble for thousands of years to make us think we live on a globe if in fact we live on a disc.

  • Does these people learn science?

  • These willfully ignorant asses are not helping humanity to progress and create a better world

  • Those British accents are pure awesome

  • If the earth was flat America and China would have almost the same time zone but they don't when China's day America is night and vice versa

  • Meet the people casting aside 500 years of Jesuit lies.

  • The guy saying that we would fly off the Earth is dumb. The eaths gravitational pull is keeping us on!!

  • A pilot said I should know if is was flat it's not I know u for got to mention u could only go far up till the government gets involve I wonder y u dont mention the oath u take to not say a word contract

  • 2:17 thats because there isn't any truth. Keep looking for things that aren't there.

  • I wonder if these people would complete the astronomy in 2nd grade.

  • These people really are truly autistic when it comes to fundamental understanding of distance, size, and math. I guess MK ULTRA is still alive and working well

  • 1st globe 1492.

  • Damn these comedians are funny.

  • You know what
    just gives us one photo… just one.. of the globe earth that is not photoshoped and we all be happy to no more bring up this subject ever again

  • Nothing more than communal mental masturbation and hysteria. Humanity will carry on long after this lunacy is dead and gone.

  • It's simple the ONLY way to create a magnetic field is for electricity to move in a circle, thus WE must be spinning NOT the sun rotating around the earth. Otherwise there wouldn't be a magnetic field, hence the molten iron core which SPINS is the ONLY reason we are here as otherwise NO atmosphere, NO magnetic field. We'd be tidally locked like the moon, and MOST of the solar system, thus we'd have NO possibility of life, as ONLY planets which have a core which is MOVING can maintain a atomsphere and stop solar rays from destroying everything.

  • These are just sad and depressed people who want to hang out with people with things in common and have a cause to live by.

  • My daughter is in Buenos Aires for school this semester. She noticed that the moon is "upside down"

    Let the Flat Earthers explain that.

  • Please argue that the government is hacking into my video camera that I attached to a space balloon to obtain my own proof.

  • What would be the point of the government lying to us

  • Comedy gold.

  • 2500 years of science… lol uhhh ok….. how about 600 years ago the world leaders came up with the magical floating ball and hey it almost works…

  • 2:22 guy seems awfully familiar…

  • Come on poeple? You're make mankind foolish to intelligent lifeforms! Why? Is Starbucks behind this?

  • Yeah…Starbucks is behind this!

  • Flat earthers are like people without a fast expensive car, but saying that there are not fast cars existing. So the people they owned are wrong!

  • Oh….some flat earthers i like to fu**! But i like it to be a superficial relationship.

  • Damm flat earth belivers wont stop The Must Ride A rocket and SEE THE EARTH IS AN ORB NOT A DISK

  • Didn't the flat earther prove the world is round?
