This Is How Scientists Fooled You The Earth Is Round by Sagemind(m): 1:25pm On Oct 18, 2019
A scientist in London has done a research and found out that scientists fooled everyone into believing the earth is round.

A conspiracy theorist from east London outlined his far-fetched view that the earth is actually flat.

Safvan, 23, is part of a growing community of flat-earthers in London who share the same belief we are being fooled by scientists.

India-born Safvan, 23, is a bilingual science graduate who holds some rather outlandish views about our planet.

He is part of growing online community that rejects conventional wisdom that the earth is round – much to the bemusement of everyone else.

The masters student says he first realised that the world was flat when he was 18 and studying the properties of water.

“Water couldn’t curl into a ball like that,” he told MyLondon . “Even with gravity it’s impossible.”

“I have done my research for a very long time,” he said.

Safvan explains that if the size of the earth is what scientists say it is, then there must be a certain amount of curvature in the globe per mile.

With that amount of curvature, it should be impossible to see the Chicago skyline from the opposite side of Lake Michigan.

“That’s a really famous example in the flat earth conspiracy,” Safvan explained.

Like many flat earth theorists he uses YouTube to further his knowledge on the subject.

“YouTube is the main thing. A lot of people are turning to flat earth because of YouTube.”

Safvan believes that Antarctica is not at the bottom of the world and is actually the whole way round.

That means at the edges of the world, the seawater is held in by a giant wall of ice.

“Why do you think only researchers are allowed to go there?”

He appeared stumped when asked why no flat-earther has ever just taken a boat to go and see it for themselves.

According to him, the Illuminati – a mythical secret society of global financiers and politicians – is responsible for keeping people in the dark.

“John F Kennedy – he used to talk about the Illuminati. And Michael Jackson.”

“In JFK’s last speech he spoke about the ‘people who control the world’.”

He believes NASA is an multi-billion dollar hoax designed to convince people that the earth is spherical, and in addition, he also thinks that the moon landings were faked.

He said: “They can send Neil Armstrong in space in 1969. Why don’t they send people to the moon in 2019? Why don’t they send astronauts towards the moon right now?

Safvan claims that the video of the moon landing was removed from NASA’s website when people started to catch on.

A common aspect of flat earthism is that subscribers are often religious and Safvan is no different.

He believes God created humans and the theory of evolution was invented to encourage atheism.

“We were not monkeys,” he said, “If we were not made by God, then why are we the only animals on earth who can reason?”

The fact we are taught geography with a globe from a young age shouldn’t stop us from realising the truth, Safvan says.

People think i t’s crazy you know, most other people mock us,” he said.

“They make us seem like fools or stupid. I don’t care about such things.

“Normally after two or three conversations they start to understand.”

“There’s a lot of people getting into flat earth in London,” he adds.

Perhaps one day the history books praise the genius of flat earthers who realised the truth.

Unfortunately for Savfan, today is not that day.

“I think I’m lucky to have realised,” he says.

Gravity assembled everything; from the stars to the planets. Gravitation pulls equally from all directions and the results are spheres. No other shape is possible.

I can remember geography class, when I was taught about the earth.

My teacher said," If a ship is approaching a habour, the mast ( top of the ship) is seen first, then later the body of the ship. This shows that the earth is spherical in shape."

He also went on and said," if the earth were to be flat, the whole body of the ship would be seen at once, and if it goes far, it disappears once."

So it is left for us to go to a beach or river and observe when a ship comes, whether the whole body or the mast is seen first.


Also, if the earth were Flat, then sun rise and sun set would be the same everywhere.


Finally, if you view the sun from afar, it is spherical in shape, if you view the moon also, it is spherical in shape, even planetary bodies also, therefore the earth cannot be an exception.



For me( used for opinion) , the earth is spherical in shape.

To me ( used for preference) I would love the earth to be Flat so that we all have equal time.

This flat Earth model is an archaic conception of Earth's shape peddled by conspiracy theorists, even a kid can tell the earth is spherical because there's enough physical and observation evidence to support this, since the eight century, no cosmographer worthy of note has called into question the sphericity of the Earth, this question shouldn't even be considered in 2019.

Technically, no scientist ever said the earth is round. Scientists rather say, the earth is spherical - which sounds better when describing the form of the earth.

As it may be disastrous to accept everything the scientists say, all the same, there are some indisputable truths.

Flat earth model was an hypothesis in the days when knowledge was little and scientific researches were handicapped as a result of unavailability of research equipment and devices.

As things stand at present, it is awkward for anyone to still hold and propagate the flat earth system.
The earth is beautifully spherical and not flat.

Numerous evidences abound everywhere to show or prove the earth is spherical and not flat, without launching a rocket or satellite - Varying shadows, spherical shape of the sun and other planets, time zones, the pull of gravity, Lunar eclipse, sunset and the rest.
If the earth were flat, all locations throughout the world will have the same day and night.

Spherical earth is a reality, not just a false scientific model or conspiracy theory. If you're acute in perception, it's something you can observe by looking at the sky, the horizon and the landscape of the earth.

I've learnt geography for some time now and we were given several evidences for the earth's sphericity.
Circumnavigation of the earth: Ferdinand Magellan and his crew took a voyage sometime ago and it was said that they returned to the same starting point after 5 years. If the earth were flat,they'll probably have come to an abrupt edge and possibly fall out of the earth..
Ship Visibility: it was said that when a ship is approaching, the mast is seen first before the remaining part of the ship is seen (round earth) if the earth were flat, the whole body of the ship would be sighted at once..
Driving poles of equal length: we were also told that it was recorded that driving poles of equal length were launched from the earth at the same time, but the two by the sides reached the earth before the one at the middle (round earth) but if the earth were flat, they'd reach at the same time.
Several other evidences though but no time to elucidate further

If you really take time to do some little research you'll actually find it very difficult to believe the earth is round. Infact I 90% belive the earth is flat.
Do you know that NASA has no real image of earth? All you have been seeing is actually CGI. All the fantastic pictures of Mars, jupiter, saturn, Galaxies are all CGI.
Someone mentioned something about the ship disappearing over the curve well sorry to disappoint you but that has also been debunked with the help of some high end cameras. Simply looking thru the cameras they still saw the ships clearly. It's all perception e.g when you stand at the end of a long corridor you realize that the extreme end of the corrider becomes smaller and terminates at the eye level. So the whole idea is the higher you go the farther you'll see but since the air contains a lot of particles there a limit the eye can see. Even the American encyclopedia of 1958 has some to say on that. Watch the video.
Let's even take about vacuum. So space is a vacuum right and earth is spinning through space and somehow space has not stripped earth of its atmosphere completely. And they say it's cause of gravity undecided. Same gravity that a balloon filled with helium overcomes undecided. Really the whole globe earth is really fishy.

Hmm!

Though, the guy might actually be right but he need further concrete evidences to prove his stand or point or to convince geographers

Anyway, as long as there are no concrete reasons, the earth is GEOID in shape.

Personally, I believe and know the earth is GEOID or SPHERICAL in shape

Your balloon analogy is purely undiluted criminal
I want to ask you, how does aeroplane overcome gravity??

Please enough forming debunking just tell us why you think the earth is flat enough nonsense.

I want to know why the sailors has not fallen from the flattened earth.
Please don't give me water analogy that water doesn't curl just like the educated illiterate was saying. Everyone knows that water as liquid takes the form of container and if the container is circular the water circles and forms the shape...

� � nice. But do you know one of your scientist, Neil degrasse tyson that antagonises flat earthers actually claimed that it's no longer spherical. He said its expanding at the bottom because of rotation and now it's pear shaped. You just need to get on YouTube
