Something really cool about the world is that people can believe whatever stupid things they want to.
If you didn’t know this already, there are some people out there who completely reject science and believe that Earth is flat instead of round. The tapestry of humanity is varied and brilliant. Flat Earthers believe that NASA photos showing the round earth are doctored by CGI and have other theories “debunking” everything we know to be true.
They were especially hopeful that last week’s eclipse would reveal the hoax that is the entire scientific community. Think they succeeded? Here’s what went down.
Rapper B.o.B. is perhaps the most famous Flat Earther, and during the eclipse he tweeted his (unintelligible) ramblings about the moon not being visible before or after the eclipse.
When asked what actually caused the eclipse, B.o.B. responded, “Rahu.” He is referring to an ancient mythological being that was responsible for astronomical events. Oooookay.
Other Flat Earthers brought out their old stand-by: the images from across the country were all CGI.
