That there are those who still believe the Earth is flat is true. They’re out to prove their belief too, by sailing off to the edge itself so that they can have a look. Fair enough, nice to see people testing the veracity of their beliefs in this manner. The thing is though, they seem to be going in the wrong direction. Reports are that they’re to go to Antarctica. Which is not the edge nor end of the Earth at all. That’s Dudley:
Conspiracy theorists are organising a cruise to Antarctica to prove that Earth is flat. Details are vague at the moment but it is understood the voyage will be a round trip. The cruise is the latest event put on for the burgeoning Flat Earth community, which believes the world is not a sphere but a flat disk encircled by Antarctica’s impenetrable icy walls.
There are those two problems. One, the Earth isn’t actually a flat disk, which is a bit of a problem for the theory. But also, Antarctica is the wrong place to be trying to prove it:
Geek.com reports Flat Earthers are planning a trip to Antarctica to prove the Earth is not an oblate spheroid. The expedition is being organised by the Flat Earth International Conference. Youtuber Logan Paul expressed interest in the journey.
If you were to go looking for where the Earth ends and one is able to peer over the side down into Hell that would be Dudley in the West Midlands. As anyone who’s ever been there will be willing to corroborate. So, wrong idea and wrong place to go test it anyway.
