Entangling theories[edit]

Could some of the ley lines not working as the relevant woo-meisters claim (rather than using natural and constructed features as route markers/constructing places of interest where money-giving travellers are likely to be passing) because of the curvature of the Earth be brought into the discussion? Anna Livia (talk)

Former NASA employee says Earth is flat?[edit]

Hi. I seem to remember once hearing about someone who worked at NASA and claimed the Earth was flat. I don't quite remember. I remember he was not a scientist or engineer, and he thought Antarctica went on near infinitely and there were other land masses beyond Antarctica. I thought I had read about him here on RW, but I looked through the fossil record and couldn't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Am I remembering a hoax, or was he a real crackpot? Thanks. Lgmr (talk) 07:48, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

Could it be David Beverley Sr.?[1] I don't see him mentioned on RW, but he fits the bill: claims to have worked on IT security for NASA, fundie, flattie. Bongolian (talk) 08:47, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
I believe that's him. Thanks. I couldn't remember exactly what job he claimed to do for NASA. I hope their systems are secure. lol. Lgmr (talk) 08:58, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

Maybe the long-distance migrating birds and sea creatures can pop in to say hi. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 22:36, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
There are more reputable news websites as well.

Ultima Thule[edit]

How soon will the pancake planet be incorporated into the FE argument? (I know UT is 'small enough to be any shape it wants.') Anna Livia (talk) 17:15, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

Another source[edit]

One of the web browsers I use came up with [2]. Anna Livia (talk) 12:44, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

We're covering up the truth of the ice wall.[edit]

look at this truth! ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 21:55, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Another reference[edit]

Where can [3] be fitted into the article? Anna Livia (talk) 12:52, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Flat Earth and Hollow Earth followers[edit]

Have they spoken about each others' viewpoints? Anna Livia (talk) 16:46, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Generally, it results in Armageddon but on a geocentric earth.[4] Bongolian (talk) 17:10, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Well - both groups probably agree that 'big deep holes' are A Bad Thing (going through to the other side - with the problems that might arise). Anna Livia (talk) 14:09, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
