"Our shuttles routinely blast off to orbit the Earth. There is not a single doubt that man is in space!" ~ Ralph René
Back in 2009, I was producing a new series called "Why We Know The Earth Is Round". I completed the first draft and sent it off to be checked over. But ultimately I decided to abandon the project, because trying to prove the Earth is round is like trying to prove that the sky is blue or that the Sun came up this morning. Trying to prove something that is self evident is a complete waste of my time and talent.
Unfortunately in recent years, especially with the release of all of my SpaceX progress videos, the comments of my videos have become a dumping ground for comments left by morons who think the Earth is flat or that all space travel is faked because of the "fact" that rockets don't work in a vacuum. For the most part, I chose to ignore this crap. But it has now gotten to the stage where some of these deniers have accused me of being a "paid NASA shill" because of my support of SpaceX (a private group whose only association with NASA is a seller/customer relationship!), because I don't doubt everything NASA has done in space, and because I don't conform to their ridiculous nonsense.
This topic was brought up on a recent Vinny Eastwood radio show that I did last August. I have decided to share this clip from said interview with you simply because I'm fed up with all the bullshit that I have to put up with from Flat Earthers and Space Travel Deniers. This video will be the closest you'll get from me making a video debunking these idiots. I only give my attention to serious researchers, not deniers. If the Flat Earthers and Space Travel Deniers were serious researchers, they wouldn't be Flat Earthers and Space Travel Deniers to begin with.
I leave you with these wise words of Ralph René, who died seven years ago today: "Now you are entitled to believe anything you want. However, remember that when observational data or experiment conflicts with a theory, no matter how beautiful the theory or impressive the credentials of its author, a rational person pitches out the theory."
