Neil deGrasse Tyson And Rapper B.o.B Are In A Twitter Fight Over The Earth Being Flat
January 26, 2016
Atlanta rapper B.o.B believes he has solved one of the biggest cover-ups in mankind's history - the Earth is flat, not round.
For the past few days, he's been tweeting his evidence.
Once you go flat, you never go back— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 26, 2016
The cities in the background are approx. 16miles apart... where is the curve ? please explain this pic.twitter.com/YCJVBdOWX7— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
At first people thought he was crazy and/or on drugs.
No I'm not crazy , Yes I'm feeling fine, no I'm not doing anything stronger than weed, am I doing this to promote my music .. No...— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 26, 2016
I'm going up against the greatest liars in history ... you've been tremendously deceived— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 26, 2016
I question the international laws that prevent you from exploring Antartica and the North Pole... what's there to hide?— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 26, 2016
But he started to gain some support.
@bobatl gotta be honest, i came into this thinking you were crazy but... what you're saying makes sense— Sage Boggs (@sageboggs) January 25, 2016
@bobatl Same thing when I try to Google images of Earth. All CGI. There's supposed to be 30,000 satellites up there wtf.— GZUSFCHRIST (@YakubBukowski) January 25, 2016
With all the critism, B.O.B started to pour on his theory...
Time-lapse photos of stars form perfect circles... how is this possible ? pic.twitter.com/d9d1sJja8z— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
No matter how high in elevation you are... the horizon is always eye level ... sorry cadets... I didn't wanna believe it either.— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
y'all be like... "you're not high enough to see the curve...keep going" pic.twitter.com/dzgYpIIao3— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
Oblate Spheroid ? 🤔🤔🤔 pic.twitter.com/dCvZlvXkuL— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
If the Earth is flat, what else has NASA been lying about?
Remember when they "lost" to footage to the 1st moon landing 😂— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
Enter American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Clearly he can put and end to this... right?
@bobatl Earth's curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
@bobatl Polaris is gone by 1.5 deg S. Latitude. You’ve never been south of Earth’s Equator, or if so, you've never looked up.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
@bobatl Flat Earth is a problem only when people in charge think that way. No law stops you from regressively basking in it.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
It looks like Neil believes B.o.B should stick to making music.
@bobatl Duude — to be clear: Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
So that's exactly what B.o.B did - a brand new track featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson.
May the twitter battle continue!
