Did you know somepeople think the earth is flat? This new conspiracy theory denies what philosophers from the ancient Greeks had thought about more than two thousand years ago: the possibility that, beyond the horizon, the earth was not flat. From then on, humanity went on a crusade to discover if we lived on a spherical or a flat planet. Far away from those days, there is a group of people today who still don’t believe that the earth is rounded. These people like to be called the Flat Earthers. They think globes are a mistake and we are floating on a flat surface.
These people have websites in which they talk about what they consider evidence to back this theory. It is still not clear why someone would lie about something like this but, still, they claim that when you sit to look at the horizon you won’t see any curvature. However, they think that pictures from NASA in which you can see round edges are altered in order to hide the truth from us.
Even though nothing is for sure, why would NASA or the government or history and science books lie about the Earth? What, exactly, would they be covering?
