Flat Earthers Are Planning A Bizarre Antarctica Trip To Prove Conspiracy Theory

Conspiracy theorists are heading to the “end of the world” in a bizarre bid to prove the Earth isn’t a sphere.  The “Flat Earthers” plan is to sail to Antarctica to find the frozen barrier they believe marks the edge of our planet.  The supposed “ice wall” is said to be a couple thousand feet thick, towers 164 feet high and surrounds the entire planet.  Next year’s trip — details of which are being kept under wraps — is being organized by the Flat Earth International Conference (FEIC).  Even YouTube star Logan Paul wants to join the expedition so he can “find the facts” behind the theories.  FEIC founder Robbie Davidson told Forbes: “If you take a globe and you squish it down, the Antarctic would go all the way around the Earth.  It’s kind of like an ice shore and it’s very, very large. It’s not like you just go there and you can just peek over it.  We don’t believe anything can fall off the edge, because a big portion of the flat earth community believes that we’re in a dome, like a snow globe.  So the sun, moon and stars are all inside. It’s very high but all contained inside. So there’s no way to actually fall off of the earth.”

Many are quick to point out the ship taking them will use navigational equipment which counts on the Earth being a sphere.  Global Position Systems in particular use a network of satellites that orbit the Earth to ping off of each other and pinpoint one’s location. A general consensus by Flat Earthers is that the idea of the world as round is a way NASA can dupe society along with governments to keep control.  The Flat Earth Society suggest “the space agencies of the world” conspired to fake “space travel” to hide the Earth’s “biggest secret.”  “This likely began during the Cold War,” the Flat Earth Society says.  “The USSR and USA were obsessed with beating each other into space to the point that each faked their accomplishments in an attempt to keep pace.”
