Conspiracy theorists who think the Earth is flat are organizing a cruise to Antarctica in an attempt to prove that our planet is a flat disc.

The cruise, organized by the Flat Earth International Conference, is scheduled for 2020. The plan is to sail to Antarctica, where flattards think they would find the frozen barrier that marks the edge of the world. They have announced it as their “biggest, boldest, best adventure yet”, but they are forgetting one very important thing: The navigational systems of all ships are based on the principle that the Earth is round. However, I doubt that this simple fact of life will deter them from their endeavor since they have consistently demonstrated that facts of life are not really their thing.

Several theories exist within the Flat Earth community but the common belief is the Earth is flat. One of the most popular models claims the Earth is a large disk surrounded by an ice wall barrier in Antarctica that prevents things from falling off the planet’s edge. This ice wall is believed to surround the whole planet. Conspiracy theorists say it is a couple of thousands of feet thick and stands 164 feet. That`s a shame. If someone would drill a hole through the barrier humanity would have a unique opportunity to get rid of a few thousand less enlightened specimens.

If you believe the Earth is flat, odds are you are not very smart or you are desperately looking for attention and approval no matter where it comes from. If the latter is the case, why don`t you just post slutty photos on Instagram like all the normal people do? If you are just dumb, well, there is nothing that can be done about that.

The new Netflix documentary “Behind the Curve” has delved into the flat world of flat-earthers looking at the human side of it, rather than unnecessarily trying to disprove this ridiculous theory.

In the clip, a flat-Earther sets up a simple experiment to prove that the Earth is flat. He uses two boards with a hole at a height of 5.18 meters above water level, a camera, and another person holding a torch at the same height and aligned with the holes.

If the Earth was flat, no matter how far the other person was, the light would come through the holes. But on a spherical Earth, because of the curvature, he would have to position the light above his head (7 meters) for it to be seen. On a flat Earth, he should be seeing the light, which of course did not happen. He then asked his colleague to lift the light above his head and the light miraculously appeared.

“That’s interesting,” is all he had to say about the result.

Here is the clip from the documentary:
