Selfie From Top Of Everest ‘Destroys Flat Earth Theory Once And For All’
In a Reddit post simply captioned: ‘Checkmate flat Earth society’ user amazed spirit shared an image of him or someone they know posing for a selfie atop Mount Everest with the – you guessed it – curved edge of the planet in the backdrop.
Everest is the highest mountain above sea level, located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas on the boundary between China and Nepal, in case you skipped every day of school.
Its elevation rises to 8,848 metres, or 29,029 ft.Many Reddit users came out in support of the concrete evidence, with one saying:”Forget about dumb curvature arguments. The fact that you can only see 2.5% at a time proves it isn’t flat. If it was flat you should be able to see the whole thing from even just the top of the tallest mountain or on any commercial flat.”
Though one commenter wondered if the photographer was using a fisheye lens, which would distort the image.
Connor Murphy, an outspoken flat-earther who just revealed why humans don’t fall off the edge of the Earth, was conspicuously absent.
Connor Murphy, the son of well-known flat-earther Dave Murphy, spoke exclusively to UNILAD about NASA, the Sun, Photoshop, and pretty much anything else you’ve ever wanted to ask someone who thinks the curvature of the Earth is visible through plane windows because they’re round.
Watch the documentary here:
Speaking about why NASA and the government would lie about space travel, he said:”There are two good reasons in my opinion. One obvious reason would be money. The money raised by NASA alone since their inception is something like fifteen trillion dollars, and with that money they’ve really shown little for their work.”
The second thing is to make people feel small. It makes you feel like a tiny speck of dust, making you easier to manipulate. Basically, imagine the globe squashed down with Antarctica as the perimeter around the edge, rather than being its own continent. So many people think it’s an ice wall. It’s more akin to a cliff or a shelf. He also explained why we don’t fall off the edge of the world:
”Fall off into what, do you know what I’m saying? The way we see it is it’s an enclosed system.””There’s water above, there’s the firmament – or the dome – and there’s water above it and water below it and there’s no leaving it, there’s no finding other Suns and stuff. You can’t fall off the edge, essentially.”
What about the curve of the Earth you can see when you fly? Conor said:
”You cannot see curvature from a plane. The reason why it may seem is because of the way planes have to be designed. Every single window on a plane has to be round and curved because the cabin itself is curved.”
You can’t have straight panes or they would explode and everyone with the plane would be done. Next time you’re on a plane, look out the window and at the wing, because the wing will seem to curve as well.
