Official Flat Earth & Globe Discussion (facebook group):
ODD TV’s Flat Earth Anthology Playlist: https://goo.gl/8j6cf3
From Barcroft TV:
THERE is an ever-growing community of people who now realize that we are beiong deceived on a massive scale including the very shape of the earth. O.D.D, a Denver, CO based rapper with 75,000 + subscribers on Youtube has been making flat earth info videos for 2 years and Nathan Thompson, 31, a network marketer based in Orange County, California, set up the Official Flat Earth and Globe Discussion group on Facebook in June 2016. The group now now boasts more than 42,000 members and even Nathan has been taken aback by its rapid growth. These Flat Earthers believe that our earth is flat is encircled by a giant, ice wall and that gravity is just an unproven theory. They also claim that NASA is a fraudulent organization and that all the photographs and video footage we have from space are computer-generated imagery (CGI). And while their views may sound far-fetched, the movement has attracted many people from all across the face of the earth that resonate with the information because they have researched it for themselves. It’s 2017 and there are now Flat Earth People Everywhere. #FlatEarth

The U.S. flat-Earth movement is booming, according to new data that showed more Americans scoured the internet for flat-Earth theories in the last 12 months than ever before.
Starting in mid-2017, a string of news stories propelled the flat-Earth movement’s traffic into the digital stratosphere.
In September, long-term flat-Earth evangelist and rapper B.o.B announced he was starting a crowdfunding project to map the Earth’s shape with satellites. Soon afterward, the first annual Flat Earth International Conference brought 500 believers together in North Carolina.
In the last two weeks, 61-year-old limousine driver “Mad” Mike Hughes announced he would prove the Earth was flat once and for all by flying a $20,000 homemade rocket over California. The launch, which was due to take place last Saturday, has been postponed, according to The Washington Post. (more….)
Interest in the ‘Flat Earth’ conspiracy theory is skyrocketing

Support for the Flat Earth movement has been exploding in popularity, with millions believing NASA is trying to dupe us about the shape of our planet.
Google Trends data reveals searches for “flat earth” in the past two years have tripled, with a 90 percent surge in interest in the cranky conspiracy theory.
High-profile celebrity endorsements have helped grow a community of people who reject “globehead” thinking and insist that the world is in fact flat.
Those coming out about their belief include NBA player Kyrie Irving, who said in a podcast that he believed the Earth is not the globe we thought it was.
Then in September, rapper Bobby Ray Simmons Jr, aka B.o.B, launched a crowdfunding campaign to send satellites into orbit to confirm Earth’s shape.
Other celeb “flat-earthers” include Tila Tequila and cricket star Freddy Flintoff.
Outrageous stunts “proving” Earth is not a sphere have also been championing the cause.
Californian “Mad” Mike Hughes has built himself a homemade rocket out of scrap metal with the intention of seeing for himself the shape of terra firma.
But his mission had to be postponed in November after officials banned him from using public land as a launch area.
These “Flat Earthers” believe our planet is encircled by a giant, heavily policed ice wall and that gravity is just an unproven theory.
They also claim NASA is a fraudulent organization and that all the photographs and video footage we have from space are CGI. (more….)

Daniel Shenton should be the most irrational man in the world. As the new president of the Flat Earth Society, you’d imagine he would also think that evolution is a scam and global warming a myth. He should argue that smoking does not cause cancer and HIV does not lead to Aids.
Yes, that Flat Earth Society, a group that has become a living metaphor for backward thinking and a refusal to face scientific facts. Yes, it is still going, and no, this isn’t an early April fool.
In fact, Shenton turns out to have resolutely mainstream views on most issues. The 33-year-old American, originally from Virginia but now living and working in London, is happy with the work of Charles Darwin. He thinks the evidence for man-made global warming is strong, and he dismisses suggestions that his own government was involved with the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
He is mainstream on most issues, but not all. For when Shenton rides his motorbike, he says it is not gravity that pins him to the road, but the rapid upward motion of a disc-shaped planet. Countries, according to him, spread across this flat world as they appear to do on a map, with Antarctica as a ring of mountains strung around the edge. And, yes, you can fall off.
If you thought that flat Earthism was gone, think again. The scientific evidence is stacked against Shenton, obviously, just as it is against those who think global warming is a hoax and that the dead stalk the Earth as ghosts – but that doesn’t appear to trouble him in the least.
“There is no unified flat Earth model,” Shenton suggests, “but the most commonly accepted one is that it’s more or less a disc, with a ring of something to hold in the water. The height and substance of that, no one is absolutely sure, but most people think it’s mountains with snow and ice.”
The Earth is flat, he argues, because it appears flat. The sun and moon are spherical, but much smaller than mainstream science says, and they rotate around a plane of the Earth, because they appear to do so.
Inevitably, Shenton’s argument forces him down all kinds of logical blind alleys – the non-existence of gravity, and his argument that most space exploration, and so the moon landings, are faked. But, while many flat Earthers have problems with the idea of orbiting satellites, Shenton navigates the London streets using GPS. He was also happy to fly from the US to Britain, but says an aircraft that flew over the Antarctic barrier would drop from the sky, and from the planet.
The Flat Earth Society was originally formed as the Universal Zetetic Society in 1884, after the Greek word zeteo, “to seek”. Zeteticism, Shenton says, emphasises experience and reason over the ”trusting acceptance of dogma” – or, it seems, overwhelming evidence. Only a personal trip into space to see the world as it is for himself would persuade him. “But even then, in seeing it, I would have to be convinced there weren’t any tricks involved.” (more….)

The Earth is actually Flat. Sub to Hibbeler: https://www.youtube.com/user/Hibbeler… From Pole to Pole, Mountains, Fresh Water, Caves, Deserts, Ice Worlds, Great Plains, Jungles, The Shallow Seas, Seasonal Forests, and Ocean Deep.
“Islands” Remote islands offer sanctuary for some of the planet’s strangest and rarest creatures. The rare pygmy three-toed sloth enjoys a peaceful existence on an idyllic Caribbean island, while nesting albatross thrive in predator-free isolation. But island life always comes at a cost.
On the Galapagos Islands, young marine iguana must escape an onslaught of deadly racer snakes the moment they hatch from the sand. On the sub-Antarctic island of Zavodovski, life gets more extreme still. Every day, one and a half million penguins risk being battered against the rocks by fierce waves as they try to get on and off the island.
“Mountains” The great mountain ranges are some of the planet’s most spectacular landscapes, but they are unforgiving places to live in, and only a few animals have what it takes to live at extreme altitude. Mountain animals are amongst the most elusive in the world, and this film provides unique and intimate glimpses into their secretive lives.
Witness the moment four snow leopards come together when a mother and cub become trapped between two rival males. Join grizzly bears as they dance against trees to rub off their winter fur and soar with golden eagles hunting amongst Europe’s snow-capped peaks.
“Jungles” Jungles provide the richest habitats on the planet – mysterious worlds of high drama where extraordinary animals attempt to survive in the most competitive place on earth. Flooded forests are home to caiman-hunting jaguars and strange dolphins that swim amongst the tree tops, while in the dense underworld, ninja glass frogs fight off wasps and flying dragons soar between trees. High in the canopy slender-bodied spider monkeys brachiate through the thin branches helping each other along the way. Acrobatic indri leap through the forests of Madagascar, while the jungle night conceals strange fungi and glow-in-the-dark creatures never filmed before.
“Deserts” The world’s deserts are lands of extremes that force animals to come up with ingenious ways of coping with hostile conditions, giving rise to the most incredible survival stories on earth. A pride of desert lions are so hungry they risk hunting a giraffe several times their size, while male sandgrouse fly 120 miles each day to the nearest waterhole and dice with death to collect water for their chicks.
Filmed for the first time, a tiny bat does battle with one of the world’s deadliest scorpions, and in Madagascar, a locust swarm of biblical proportions is seen as never before.
Grasslands cover one-quarter of all land and support the vast gatherings of wildlife, but to survive here animals must endure the most hostile seasonal changes on the planet. From Asia’s bizarre-looking saiga antelope to the giant anteaters of Brazil, grassland animals have adapted in extraordinary ways to cope with these extremes.
In the flooded Okavango, lions take on formidable buffalo in epic battles, on the savannah, bee-eaters take advantage of elephants to help catch insects and, on the freezing northern tundra, caribou embark on great migrations shadowed by hungry Arctic wolves.
“Cities” Cities are growing at a faster rate than any other habitat on Earth. They may seem an unlikely place for animals to thrive, but they can be a world of surprising opportunity. Leopards prowl the streets of Mumbai, peregrine falcons hunt amongst New York City’s skyscrapers, and a million starlings perform spectacular aerial dances over Rome. In Jodhpur, langurs are revered as religious deities and in Harar, locals live in harmony with wild hyenas.
Many animals, however, struggle to cope in the urban jungle. As the architects of this environment, can humans choose to build cities that are homes for both them and wildlife?
But then there’s…

Elon Musk is the innovator of the decade. He is the brains behind Tesla, and his SpaceX program is starting to take flight, literally. The SpaceX program is Musk’s dream project which intends to send civilians to space and ultimately help combat global overpopulation and stimulate space exploration and planetary colonization. Yesterday, Musk sent Starman, who is a dummy wearing a SpaceX spacesuit, into space seated in the driver’s seat of the billionaire’s Tesla Roadster.
The launch was successful, and Starman surpassed Mars’ orbit and headed for the asteroid belt. When the dummy broke the Earth’s orbit, he took several pictures of our planet. The footage is absolutely incredible, but it puts a critical flaw in the flat earth theory. Starman and Musk just became an enemy of the Flat Earthers.
Flat Earthers, or people who believe that the earth is flat and that its round shape is a worldwide conspiracy, will be disappointed to see that pictures of the Earth prove it’s not flat. Although several pictures of the Earth from space have been published throughout the decades, Flat Earther’s claim that all of that information has been curated by a higher power. Elon Musk, who operates on his own will and has spoken out against government programs in the past, is a first-hand source.
But then we have this…
