I briefly explored this in a previous post, talking about this and birthdate of Christ. And recently a fellow blogger had revealed a similar rabbit trail they were going down. When I started looking at some of these videos, I didn’t want to be excited as I was about it. Because, as the following video points out, believing that the Earth is flat is probably the most ridiculed position to have in today’s society. I mean naturally that’s why I love it so much, but was it really worth sharing? And reluctantly I’ve concluded… YES!
I can no longer ignore the fact that thinking about this gives me girl crush butterflies. I wake up in the morning checking YouTube pretending like I don’t want to watch another “flat earth” video that’s popping up more and more the longer I stay on the subject. I’ve circled the subject with my mom about a half dozen times already, even after I could already tell she is OVER THE SUBJECT. But I don’t care. It’s time to come out of the closet.
I believe that the Earth is flat, and I don’t care who knows it!!!
First of all, there’s so much to love about this possibility. The implications of such a monumental whopper of a lie, the gaggle of people involved past and present, and the beatific spectacle it makes as it crashes to the intellectual ground. The idea that all our ancestors that we perceive to be our pitiable ladder rungs of progress have proven hands down to be officially smarter than us in all respects. The questions that I swallowed that tried to come up from the deep wellspring of my mind but always hit the brainwashed layer of mainstream media, written, verbal, and visual. The fact that I’m not the only one who finds Neil Degrasse Tyson to be a total dickweed.
If you don’t believe it, no one would blame you. If you do, and you’re hitting yourself over the head right now, stop.
“Oh my gosh, you fell for that! I can’t believe you fell for it!” The enemy wants to demonize our minds’ ability to fill in gaps and make a picture complete using creative power and inherent trust. He urges us to remain sharp, try not to believe everything we read. But for himself he uses it liberally. The Lord hates a lying tongue, Proverbs tells us. Hates. And here you thought he didn’t hate anything. There’s plenty to hate about someone insistent on nothing but complete and total corruption of EVERYTHING, including information. To the point where your eyes and ears and jolts of adrenaline have somehow become lesser sources.
What I think I love most about the possibilities is that with the conspiratorial studies colluding to prove the existence of giants, demons, shapeshifting, hybrid beings, aliens, vampires and the like, this is the last bastion of non-magical worldviews. We are officially cooler than Middle Earth, Narnia, Westeros, and wherever else we like to launch ourselves to distract from the idea that we are alone in dark universe, floating on a globe that no one cares about except for an extremely distant hot ball that seems to be having pity on us. In the beginning, God made the heavens, and the Earth, a magical world, full of more drama and conflict than all the books, enough to directly inspire them all. And no one could conceive just how close either one could truly be.
I think this means that the next organization I’m gonna start digging into is going to be NASA. Aside from maybe the U.N., it’s about the only organization left that I don’t know about b/c I didn’t care before. So, you’ll get to go on this journey with me. I mean it’s pretty much a dummy organization so…this is going to be a riot!
