We all have one friend or more like an acquaintance that thinks the earth is flat. No matter how much science you throw at them, they have flawed logic so thus can never reason like a real human. Eventually you have to give up because they aren’t able to have a two-way reasonable conversation about all this flat earth business.
Recently over 200 people went to a conference in Birmingham, United Kingdom which consisted of speakers giving their theories about how the earth is definitely not round. Here is one of the crazier theories that was presented:

Honestly I don’t think even a rational person could try and prove how that wasn’t real just because of how outlandish it is.
One speaker apparently took on Newton and disproved gravity. Oh and he did it by conducting experiments in his backyard instead of a fancy science lab. According to The Telegraph, David Marsh claimed that his, “research destroys Big Bang cosmology. It supports the idea that gravity doesn’t exist and the only true force in nature is electromagnetism.”
He claimed (while standing I assume due to gravity) that he tracked the moon across the sky which then disproved the laws of planetary motion.
Another crazy person, Darren Nesbit, I mean Flat-Earther told his audience that he knew why people never reach a wall or edge of the earth. He thinks it’s because of the very scientific “Pac-Man effect.”
He said this according to The Age:
We know that continuous east-west travel is a reality. One logical possibility for those who are truly free thinkers is that space-time wraps around and we get a Pac-Man effect.
So instead of falling off the edge of the earth (since that’s a thing) we get automatically transported to the other side. So does this mean that along with the earth being flat, we also can transport matter through time and space?
Another theory that is probably the most outlandish one of them all is that Australia doesn’t exist.

If you can’t read that, take a closer look to this theory…
It’s safe to say that some Australians are having a little bit of an identity crisis…
Holy shit, me and every other Australian, are just computer generated personas! 🇦🇺🚫🤪

If #AustraliaIsNOTReal & I'm one of the paid actors to pretend it is I want to know where I collect my paycheque? I have some shit to buy 😉

This theory pops up every once and awhile and eventually it goes away like it should. But I really can’t believe that humans think that a whole continent is part of an elaborate hoax. I guess the lizard people are really doing a great job of making their race superior. But that’s a weird theory for another day.
