In recent years, a new small group of people with flat ground have emerged, who believe that the world is shaped like a donut with a hole in the middle.
Conspiracy theorists argue that when light bends, the “real” shape of the earth is invisible to humans on its surface, as they argue against the idea that the planet is a shape. bridge.
The idea that the world has a torus (like a donut) first appeared in 2008 as an obvious joke on FlatEarthSociety.org, Evil behavior report.
A user named Dr Rosenpenis started this thread.
However, it was created in 2012 by a flatworker named Varaug.
“Light bends and follows the curvature of the torus, making the hole ‘unseen.'” he wrote.
Users even claim to have the answer How does gravity work? if the earth is shaped like a donut.
“Imagine a donut. Imagine a donut filled with jam. They write.
The strange theory received another boost in followers in 2016 when the topic of the Flat Earth Association was rediscovered.
Dinosaur user Neil wrote: “I’m glad to see other toroidal theorists here.
“I’ve been promoting it for a long time but no one seems to support me. I don’t understand why.”
However, this theory is easily disproved.
If in fact the Earth had a torus then sunrise and sunset as we know it would not work.
Dr. Tabetha Boyajian explained to Vice.
The season will be very different as it will depend on how the donut is tilted towards the sun.
And winds on a planet shaped like a donut would also make life on Earth impossible, Dr Boyajian added.
DOUBLE SEASON ON DONUT
Oxford professor Dr Anders Sandberg told Vice that the shape of a donut meant that people living near the pit would experience two seasons each year, such as a second winter in July.
The shape will also result in significantly weaker gravity on the inner and outer equator.
And, of course, there’s the fact that if you happen to be living inside a donut, you’d expect to see the other side as you look up at the sky – something that has never been reported.
Despite the argument that light bends on the Flat-Earth Association’s thread, Dr Boyajian says this only happens next to massive celestial objects in the universe such as the supermassive posterior hole.
“Any of those statements is just saying, ‘You know what, I’m just going to come up with a new idea with no motivation for it. Only eight things can match it,” Dr Boyajian stated.
“And that’s not how we develop the theory.”
In recent years, there has been a growing community of people who reject the “global-minded” thinking and insist that the world is flat.
CLAIM OF FLAT-EARTHERS
Flat Planet leaders believe that the planet is actually a disk with the arctic circle in the middle.
They claim Antarctica is really a 150-foot-high wall of ice that was built to stop us all from falling off the cliff.
These “Flat Earthers” believe that the massive wall of ice is tightly controlled and gravity is just an unproven theory.
They believe that the earth is round is a government lie – turning it into a conspiracy theory.
They also claim Nasa is a scam organization and that all the photos and videos we have from space are computer generated images (CGI).
And while their views may sound far-fetched, the movement has attracted a number of celebrity followers in recent years.
Famous followers of eccentricity including rapper BoB and former reality TV star Tila Tequila.
This idea was first seen in ancient cultures including the Romans up to the classical period.
However, most people do not believe the claims that the earth is flat.
This theory was generally disproved by Aristotle in 330 BC, but the idea that the earth was round was proposed by Pythagoras in the 6th century.
Scientists, stargazers, and most others agree that the world is in fact spherical.
However, the flat earth theory still carries weight today with some sects in society such as the Flat Earth Society.
