You would think that in this day and age, those crazy flat-Earthers would have all long given up trying to convince us the world was anything other than round. Thanks to modern technology, there really is no doubt we live on a globe.

However, flat-Earthers are still going strong and recently held a conference in North Carolina that drew hundreds of people. At $149 per person, participants got to discuss what they call “science lies” and advocate for a flat-Earth theory to be taught in schools.

One participant, Mark Sargent, who has over 40000 subscribers to his YouTube channel, appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss his flat-Earth beliefs and recent evidence which he believes supports his claims.

Sargent believes that Earth is shaped like a disc and that a large Antarctic ice wall keeps people on it. He claims that NASA employees actually guard the top of the wall so people don’t climb over and fall off.

This begs the question, where are the people that have supposedly tried to climb into space?

According to Sargent, the Earth is a kind of flat soundstage, and the “globe theory” was introduced as a method to keep the public from finding out they live on a manufactured plane.

This is because the government, including NASA, doesn’t want anyone to find out who built this “stage”.
