Just few weeks ago, there was a conference that took place in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Flat Earth International conference had about 400 participants attending from all over the world!
On this conference you could have witness many Flat Earth conspiracy theorists, even with titles like “NASA and other Space Lies” and also “Waking Up to Mainstream Science Lies”. Tickets for this conference costs from 109 US dollars up to 249!
While Earth is obviously not flat, that doesn’t mean that this like-minded people shouldn’t meet up and talk about things like this. At the end of the day, everyone wants to feel like they belong somewhere, right?
To be honest, it would be very nice if this kind of conferences stay confined to small events because recently every other football players, musician or artist speaks out in favor of it, which of couse – is not that great. But, the event this year had much more people than any previous year.
If you want a glimpse of the atmosphere on the conference – check out this video bellow.
If you don’t feel like watching the whole conference (who would?) we have some fun highlights for you. At 12 minutes, there is an answer of why Flat Earth Theory should go in the school books.
“I think we’re almost at the critical mass point,” said Sargent Mark. “Science is gonna have to address this, plain and simple. They cannot dodge us forever.”
One of the most important highlights that will make you laugh is around 31:10 in the video because Elon Musk is being discussed!
“I was wondering, people like Elon Musk, who funded the SpaceX programe [groans in disgust], then they reach, if they actually do produve a rocket capable of reaching the dome so to speak… Are they going to strike it and immediately explode, or are they going to hug the edge?
And the answer? Sargent always has the perfect one!
“Okay, officially, Elon Musk, anything that man says is an outright lie, ‘he said while almost the whole audience was giving applause. “Elon Musk just pulls crap out of his bott on a weekly basis”
In case you missed this conference and you would love to be a part of it, don’t worry. This conference is annual – so the next events will be in Sydney and London. Stay tunned!
