Flat Earthers - A global Phenomenon
« on: 10:17:56, 19 February, 2018 »
Haven't posted here for a while as my Arthritis has restricted my imaging activities.

I know we live in an era of fake news, post-truth and alternative facts but the idea of a flat earth seems to be making a (minor) comeback. I recently saw this reply to NASA on their Twitter account.

Someone posted this image they had purportedly taken of some of the planets contrasting their 'real images' with NASA's 'CGI' versions. I think they used the Nikon P900 but not very well by the looks of it.

I know these accounts are often trolls, bots or parodies, but the postings are alarming to say the least. The denial of reality is staggering. The Queen in Alice in Wonderland believed six impossible things before breakfast but she's an amateur compared to some of these people.

Make Earth Oblate Again
