The Earth is flat.
At least that’s what one conspiracy theorist wants to make the people believe after he confidently tried to prove his point that there is no way that our planet is a sphere. He said he is a realist, with almost making a pretty convincing case of his ‘flat earth’ stand. Almost but not quite.
Aboard his flight from North Carolina to Seattle in the United States, a flat earther by the name D Marble recorded himself in a video with a spirit level. And that’s for what? “To monitor whether or not the pilot would dip the nose of the plane to compensate for curvature,” as written in his YouTube video description.
Watch his explanation in this video:
He said that he recorded a 23 minute and 45 second time-lapse which should show that the plane had travelled a little over 203 miles. For this, there should be a compensation of 5 miles of curvature, which is based on the Heliocentric model in Spherical Trigonometry, he said.

D Marble went on to explain gravity being a theory. Yes, he did.
He wrote, “The bubble doesn’t stay centered due to gravity. Understand that gravity is a still just a theory.”
It gets better. “Consider how gravity comes about…supposedly a mass becomes large enough to create [its] own gravitation. This can only be observed to occur outside of the confines of the Earth. It cannot be repeated or duplicated in a lab.
“One of the more important points of the scientific method is experimentation. Thus far, there has been no experiment duplicating the effect of large masses creating [its] own gravitational pull. How does this classify as a “proven theory” without proper experimentation?” he discussed.
Comments were initially disabled by the flat earther but later allowed them. Perhaps that was a wrong call for him.
