Rapper B.o.B. Crowd-Sourcing Money To Prove Earth Is Flat

Submitted by: oobaka 3 weeks ago in News & Politics Science


According to the BBC, rapper B.o.B. used Twitter to jump on the "flat Earth" bandwagon, and it looks like he’s been riding it ever since.

B.o.B., whose real name is Bobby Ray Simmons Jr, has started a GoFundMe campaign to find Earth’s curve and see if our planet is actually round (and not a flat disc hanging in space as flat Earthers typically believe). His big contention is that if the earth was round, the "curve" would be more visible to the earthbound human eye.

His fundraising campaign says the plan is to "launch multiple satellites into space" in order to observe, and try to disprove, what centuries of science and technology have already confirmed. All he needs is a small investment of $200,000 dollars (and launch approval, of course).

Ok. I'm going to say it. It may not be popular, but I believe the Earth is round. Downvote if you agree with me.

Wait...how do the flatheads explain how a satellite orbits the flat Earth, especially since they deny gravity?

stevopusser followed that link and Damn been a long time since I've been that amazed by stupidity.  I can't understand ignoring proven evidence for made up bs.  Big part of the reason I kick religion out of my life long ago.

Notice Bob is not fronting his own money to prove the world is flat. You can prove the would is NOT flat by using a simple basketball. Toss it straight out and see it falls in an arch. It's fall would be more linear if the world was flat

Brilliant!

I should call the earth which ever shape would bring in the most money.

Pyramidal, oblong, curly, whatever.

In case the gods want to play D&D.

profworm no, all the planets are flat too.  So is the sun.  It's just like the solar system you made out of paper plates, string and  black cloth in third grade - which is the education level of flat earthers.  Do you see now where the notion came from?

I just don't see how anyone can be this stupid. Is his music this bad that he has to troll for attention? Buzz Aldrin needs to punch this guy in the face like he did to that moon landing hoax dipshit.

markust123 The moon landing stuff likely stems from soviet minded propaganda attempting to diminish the accomplishments of their rival, the United States. I don't understand the flat earth shit. Anti science?
