The Empire will Reign again
I too, have asked that question of a flat earther and the answer I got was that NASA wants you to think that Earth is a globe and space is real to discredit the Bible and turn people away from Jesus. I wanted to ask why NASA wanted people to be atheists or why Jesus and space are incompatible but I didn't want to risk losing anymore IQ points.I once asked a flat-earther exactly who benefited from lying about the shape of the planet. Why bother with that sheer amount of effort when 90% of the people waking on that rock only care about what's happening in their general 10ft sphere. The sheer amount of human and technological resources that would go into that cover up I don't think most people could begin to appreciate.. Where would any money be made in that?
And even better, how such a cover up could go on for so long, millennia according to some of them, without some greedy and/or incompetent cog in that machine stabbing someone else in the back or leaking some crap and ruining it all.
That went well.
