    Yes, there are still people who believe the Earth is flat. One of those people might be B.o.B.

    The Atlanta rapper took to Twitter and posted a photo with a pretty deep inquiry about how the distance between two cities were 16 miles apart, so he asked: “where is the curve?”



    Relying on his savvy followers, they shared their own explanations to Bobby Ray's question. Some sound logical, others sound pretty troll-y.











    B.o.B isn't quite convinced, though. He's trying really hard to prove to us that the Earth is flat, bringing up all sorts of research and photos to back up his point.

































    In these tweets, he's referring to the Red Bull Stratos in 2012, a space diving project where skydiver Felix Baumgartner jumped from a space capsule above the Earth and free-falled until he parachuted and landed on his feet. He claims while on a flight he was at the same altitude as Baumgartner.









    B.o.B Is Doing Everything He Can to Prove the Earth Is Flat

    I thought this would be just a few comments, not a lengthy Twitter crusade with questionable evidence. It's funny when people uphold "obvious" unpopular theories while dismissing other seemingly obvious science-backed theories.

    Obviously it's good to question things but he's got to do better than posting a few pictures and drawings as a counter, especially when the answer really is as simple as "you're not high enough to see the curve...keep going, though he'd probably just argue that NASA is another cog in the dishonest conspiracy machine. Kinda reminding me of the conspiracy monologues from last night's X-Files. And don't people realize telling disbelievers to grow up will just make them ignore you or double down on their positions?

    I actually went to Columbia High school (Decatur,GA) with this negro and sat next to him in class and he did absolutely nothing. He didn't know much either. All he did was sit and write lyrics.l'm not saying he's dumb but he's not the brightest. He was real nice though. Great guy, but outside of music he wasn't all there. But hey, he's got more money than me. Bobby come holla at me bro(as if he visits this site lol)

    Yeah I worked with him on a project once, this was before Airplanes came out I think...He was very cool and humble...Him not being hip to widely accepted and undisputed science isn't really a dealbreaker, its def disappointing though.

    As bad as thinking the world is flat is, it is better than those crazy Christians who think that Jesus rode a dinosaur.

    As someone who is completely out there, I feel compelled in a totally non judgmental way image.gif to ask how is it that
    you can give him a pass while he's disputing widely known 4th grade science but not a guy with an imagined bald patch? image.gif

    LMAO! I swear you read my mind! That is exactly what I came into this thread to post, the same. damn. thing. but I thought better about it as Ocky probably does not like me since I unwittingly posted my first posts in his thread and it got nasty and he thought I was challenging his post(I was not ocky!)and I figured I do not need to get on Nick's sh@t list so I was nice and posted the dinosaur thing instead!

    *only difference was the smilie and I would have put 'on the top of' his head and not used 'imagined' lol.

    This has to be a publicity stunt. This negro can't possibly be serious. I mean I do know there is a such thing as a Flat Earth Society but it basically people who don't understand or can't comprehend science and the laws of physics.

    First off, your post/photo formatting leaves much to be desired. Gimme some line breaks from time to time homie, lol.

    Secondly, you're right...being stupid is a tough pill to swallow. I've dated some dudes who weren't very bright and it never lasted long. This one dude from Florida kept saying "skreet" instead of "street" and eventually it became the last straw.

    But even in that other thread I never said the bald spot was a dealbreaker, just that it made the dude's stock drop...

    Sorry, I'm old and technology is so new.

    My bad.
    Stock drop is far from imagined rejection of imagined bald spot.

    A lot of those crazy Christians are also flat earthers who think the world is 6000 years old. It's different branches of the same stupidity.

    I have two older brothers. One of them actually believes that the Earth is 6,000 years old and that the fossil record is the Devil's attempt to fool us.

    This shyt just got weird. B.o.B. has responded to Neil deGrasse Tyson's response tweets with a response of his own...A diss track on soundcloud called "Flatline"!!!

    It's full of conspiracy theories and an out-of-context excerpt from a Neil deGrasse Tyson interview on the formation of the Earth. This seems right up @ockydub's alley.

    This is some prolific performance art. This guy is a marketing genius or the people behind this stunt. It is making B.o.B relevant, and relevance good or bad is marketable...He is going ride this weird performance art all the way to the bank!!

    Doubt it, it'll just make them more interested in him (BoB) for about 15mins, then they'll move on to something else. Sad, because Neil Degrasse is very relatable. I love watching his video debates and discussions on YouTube and I love "Cosmos".

    As much as hope the opposite is true in think you're right @alton . The black community seems to be very anti-science by in large. The American educational system especially in heavily black and minority areas are essentially moron factories. These cultural and structural problems put us at a disadvantage.

    Well...it was planned that way from the get. Not only for us as Black People, but society as a whole has been systematically dumbed down. Largely via the education system (this does not include the mainstream Universities that one must pay for such as Harvard, Yale, etc which were never meant for us. But even they teach the truth only to those who need to know), partially through the media, and the the Abrahamic Religions took care of the rest. We as Black Folk just got it the hardest and most "full on in the face" blatantly.

    I don't think it's a " dumb down of society" from what I have observed it's more of a mixture of to much to fast, not real knowing how things fit,and greed.
