This weekend marked the first edition of the Flat Earth Convention, held in UK. Here, over 200 flat-earthers gathered to discuss their own theories and seemingly offer proof that Earth is flat. Some people came with some really crazy theories which claimed to debunk the Big Bang or explain why we don’t fall off Earth.
One flat-earther says gravitation doesn’t exist
Probably the hottest topic at the Flat Earth Convention was the theory that could disprove the Big Bang. David Marsh, the supply chain manager at National Health Service (NHS), was the author of this insane claim. He said gravity is not real, and the only true force that keeps the planet going is electromagnetism.
His claims were supposed to contradict the theory of planetary motion. To contradict the Big Bang theory, he performed some experiments only using a smartphone app and a Nikon camera. After spending at least 18 months researching these theories, he claimed to have finally found proof to support his convictions.
Other member of the movement says we live in a Pac-Man world
Another interesting and wacky theory presented at the Flat Earth Convention was related to Pac-Man. Many people who don’t support the flat Earth theory say our planet cannot have this shape as we don’t fall off its surface when we reach its edge. Musician Darren Nesbit quickly came with a response, and said we live in a Pac-Man world.
According to him, whenever we reach the edge of the world, we get to the other end of the map, similarly to the Pac-Man game. He says the world is not actually moving and space-time is actually wrapping around the planet. Such a theory comes out as really funny, since many people use it on the internet to make fun of flat-earthers.
The Flat Earth Convention was the first event to bring together all supporters of this movement. Here, people claimed they actually have scientific evidence to disprove the fact that Earth is round, thus coming with the wackiest of theories.
