Flat Earth discussion with popular YouTuber Stefan Molyneux
Stefan Molyneux who has 284,000 followers had a caller ask him what he knows about the flat earth. The interview went well, the host, Stefan allowed the caller, Steven, time to explain his position. Steven (who sounds like Eric Dubay) presented a lot of facts – he really knows his subject. The interview went well, but it seemed to digress towards the end by the host of the program.
I would like to add some comments.
Stefan was still in disagreement and it sounds like it was because not all his questions were answered. This, I feel is a cop out. If they guy had 100 questions and you answered 80 of them, for example, and the questions you answered were the most important – do you really have to answer all of them? Of course not.
Did you ever see the edge?
One question that Stefan had was, “Did you ever see the edge?” The answer was no and I don’t think anyone has except a very few of the people in a top secret classified position and they will not tell you. But even if you haven’t, which no flat earther that went public can say they “saw the edge,” do you really need that to prove that the earth is flat? Of course not, you can prove it’s flat by using the math of “8 inches squared the distance.” just mention this in your flat earth debate and STICK WITH IT, don’t let your friend go onto another subject until he/she has thoroughly understands it. This will prove if we are on a globe or not.
The host criticised the caller by saying he (the caller) discounts all NASA and other space agency photos and not what people have taken in a balloon. He said this is wrong. Stefan is WRONG; he is not using logic.
Many hours searching
Stefan criticised the caller on the amount of hours he sent into searching the flat earth theory. Well, he should look at himself – it seems OK for him to do his research into his other conspiracies but flat earth, that’s a no no. Strange!
The host also said, “If you have a girlfriend you might chase her away with your flat earth talk,” or words to that effect. Maybe that’s part of what is wrong with the world – fearing what other people think. That’s why we are in such a mess as we are because people fear what others might think.
This Stefan has 284,000 followers so he is obviously scared of having subscribers unsubscribe so he doesn’t want to rock the boat.
Believing in God
The host also said that he is an atheist and he admitted that, by accepting the flat earth model he will have to believe in a Creator. Now, I don’t know how many of his subscribers are atheists, so he might not want to lose them. In fact, he said at the end, how how a big mistake he would make if he had to tell his listeners he was mistaken. Of course, he would have to tell them about God. It shows his true colors – he doesn’t want to change his beliefs, believe in God and also lose some of his following.
Keeping a secret
Stefan Molyneux used the argument that how can so many people keep it a secret. My answer to this, which was not given in the interview is, look at the 10s of thousands of people who worked on the Manhatten Project (making of the first atomic bomb) – they kept their mouths shut. How? Mainly by “on a need to know bases,” and by compartmentalisation. This, too, is used with all space agencies.
Think about this, those who build satellite (though they don’t do anything) just have to know their engineering job, not about the nature of planets. Those who build rockets, the same thing.
With that in mind, continue your flat earth research.
