As many of us stared at the sky to witness the recent solar eclipse, the Flat Earth community has likewise been busy – claiming that the rare phenomenon just proved that our planet is indeed flat. This is the perfect time to do a facepalm, right?
Yes, you read that right, our dear readers. The annoying flat earthers are at it again and are, at this time, saying that they are the eclipse is indeed a clear proof.
The eclipse could have been a great opportunity to prove them wrong but no, the flat earthers are standing their ground.
It’s really ridiculous to think but it’s also sad when you realize this is how low some community members are willing to go.
On Twitter, rapper B.o.B., a staunch flat earther posted his skepticism about the solar eclipse.
“It’s so amazingly beautiful how the moon isn’t visible before and after a total solar eclipse #SolarEclipse17 #FknScienceBro… so when the moon finally scoots over, will i be able to see it ???”
When someone asked him what was causing the eclipse if not the moon, he simply replied “Rahu” – a reference to Vedic cultures’ mythological figures Rahu and Ketu.
In an IFLScience article, we even read that some flat earthers have gone on YouTube to “pick at the incredible images that NASA proudly, and quite rightly, showed off following the eclipse.”
As the image above, there are those who are claiming that NASA’s solar eclipse images are CGI – which is short for ‘computer-generated imagery’.
Now watch this video entitled “Fake Eclipse”:
“Folks, nothing caused the Sun eclipses today, but the Sun, as far as we can tell,” the video claimed.
This group of people just never fail to fascinate me.
The next total solar eclipse would be on July 2, 2019 but heck, they’re probably looking forward to that to exhibit their stupidity all over again.
NASA Unveils Plan To Drill Into Yellowstone Supervolcano To Save The Planet
NASA plans to drill into Yellowstone to save the planet from an impending catastrophe.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said they want to drill into the Yellowstone supervolcano in the hopes to save the planet from an impending eruption. This massive volcano could cause a greater catastrophe than any asteroid or comet.
The Yellowstone National Park lies on top of a vast, ancient and active volcano. The extreme heat pours off its underground magma chamber. It's responsible for the geysers and more than 10,000 hot springs in the area.
The Yellowstone Park is about 3,500 square miles that sits atop an active volcano.
Researchers Triumph In Growing Premature Lamb Using Artificial Womb
Imagine the benefits it can provide to humanity as a whole!
Humanity has been trying to solve the greatest puzzles of life and one of these is reproduction, a fundamental feature of all known life. This is exactly what a team of researchers is trying to achieve with their recent milestone.
Interestingly, they’ve managed to successfully grow a preterm lamb using an artificial womb. It may still be far from human reproduction, but it’s still a huge step towards it. This is the second time that such achievement has been achieved.
The artificial womb keeps the premature lamb alive and helps in developing its body.
‘Racist’ Soap Dispenser Appears To Work For White People But Not For Blacks
Is this soap dispenser RACIST?
Ah, technology. They say it's humanity’s key to unlimited resources, though no one can tell what resources these are exactly. Actually, some believe that with its advancement, people will instead gradually become dumb or stupid.
Case in point, a video of a soap dispenser has gone viral because of blatant racism - it appears to offer soap to whites, but not to blacks. This definitely has something to do with technology, no?
