People often ask: If Earth is flat, why are the other planets round? This question comes from two assumptions:
1) That other planets exist
2) That they are round
These assumptions stem from the indoctrination that we received since we were infants. By the time a child reaches school age, he has seen the globe and “planets” hundreds of times. When he begins his schooling, this bombardment only increases.
We see the images and hear the narrative so many times, that by the time we encounter Flat Earth we say, “No…it couldn’t be.” The images of our “planet” and “solar system” are embedded deep in our psyche, through images and constant repetition.
So when Flat Earth comes across our desk, we respond to the anomaly: Why would earth be the only flat planet? We know all the other planets are round, don’t we?
In reality, we have no proof that any of the heavenly bodies are spheres. We have evidence that they are circular. Circular does not equal spherical.
My readers will argue, “But we can see the spheres through a telescope!” We see circles through a telescope. A “planet” viewed with a Nikon P900 looks like this:
What they call “planets” are wandering stars, and they are visible with the naked eye. The ancients saw them, wrote about them, and made accurate predictions about them long before the telescope was invented.
We know the heavenly stars are circular, and we know they move. But we don’t know they are spheres. The only evidence we have for the spheres is CGI, and that doesn’t count as evidence.
So the “round planet” question comes from a lifetime of indoctrination, not from any observation or experiment. Any other Frequently Asked Questions you encounter, let me know in the comments.
