The next step for Flat Earthers is an expedition to the Antarctic – to find the edge of the world


Conspiracy theorists who believe that modern science is wrong and the Earth is in fact flat, not spherical, are planning a trip to the Antarctic as a way to see the “end of the world.”

One of the world’s most controversial YouTubers, Logan Paul, recently decided that he will journey to the edge of the world. He even has a documentary about it, called The Flat Earth: to the Edge and Back.

He recently attended the Flat Earth International Conference in Denver, where he chatted with one of the most prominent believers: Robbie Davidson.

Paul told Forbes: "I consider myself a man of truth, someone who hates being ignorant."

I’m not ashamed to say my name is Logan Paul and I think I’m coming out of the Flat Earth closet.

If I'm going to put my name out there (as a Flat Earth supporter), I want to know the facts.

The fact that we haven't been to the moon in over 50 years, the fact that the moon emits its own light.

Some of the best scientists can't explain gravity; Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, in the end, do they even know?

Uh, yeah. They do.

“I want to explore for myself and keep an open mind. There is a stigma of being a flat-earther and if I'm going to do it I want to know the facts,” he added.

Davidson talked about Antarctica through the scope of Real Exact Proper Science.

When we look at Antarctica if you take a globe and you squish it down, the Antarctic would go all the way around the Earth. It's kind of like an ice shore and it's very, very large. It's not like you just go there, and you can just peek over it.

Not to worry, however, despite believing the Earth is flat, they don’t believe anything – or anyone – can fall over the edge.

Fellow Flat Earther Jay Decasby added that “early sailors” were able to prove the flat earth model before the UN set up the Antarctic Treaty which “essentially made it illegal for independent and private exploration of Antarctica.”
