“The flat-Earthers are obviously wrong—the world is a sphere, and it’s hollow.”
Conspiracy theorists get a bad rap these days, and rightfully so. But it wasn’t always the case.
I remember it wasn’t all that long ago, back when I was working night shifts at an oil patch, we would kill time by turning on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. If you haven’t heard this show, it can turn even the blandest talk radio into a fantasy wonderland—it was almost innocent in a way that has been lost to maniacs on YouTube ranting about racist conspiracies and how putting things into the water can turn frogs gay.
One night, a little over half a decade ago, while dicking around with my fellow co-workers, I remember hearing something far-fetched even for Coast to Coast—a hollow Earth theorist. The man, whose name I can’t remember, spoke of another world that exists within our own. Down there was another sun, beautiful valleys, a lost tribe of Israel or two, and dinosaurs.
that’s so weird… was literally just outside talking with this guy, who was going on and on about some crazy ass conspiracy theories — though he certainly didn’t consider them to be “conspiracies” at all… but holy shitballs, he was trying to
convince explain to me how we’re all actually living under some kind of “dome”, and that none of the maps of the earth are real… that we’re all being manipulated by “them”… that the earth might indeed be flat… and that we never landed on the moon.
oh and believe me, there was more.
