It is usually held towards the end of the month of March.
Earth Hour has officially become a symbol of commitment towards our beloved planet.

The World is Flat

Remember how back in the past we gullible humans all once thought the Earth is flat? Thomas L. Friedman’s International Bestseller ‘The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century’.

Well guess what, the controversy is back now! The World is Flat. Keen and interested to join the race for globalization?

Still baffled over there I see..that’s fine, let’s find out more about this archaic conception of the Earth’s model. Here’s 10 ‘proofs’ that show the example of how our planet is flat.

As much as the proposed evidence may show that Earth is flat, on the contrary, if you have the luxury to do so, take a boat out to see and try to spot some cruises or bigger ships, you will notice the lower part of their body is not able to be seen in the horizon due to the curvature of the Earth.
One of the earliest believers of ‘Flat Earth’ was English writer Samuel Rowbotham in 1849, arguing for a flat earth. Now even in modern society, one is able to seek like-minded individuals to discover the Earth’s false flatness together.

There are tons of informative videos and documentaries depicting the Earth’s model.

Watch how Elon Musk trolls the Flat Earth Society!

Are there any other methods that may deem fit for this little controversial theory?
