Flat Earth lies

Flat earthers love to lie. It’s the foundation of their cult.

Einstein and detecting earth’s rotation

Misquote: “I have come to believe that the motion of the Earth cannot be detected by any optical experiment”

Actual quote: “Since then I have come to believe that the motion of the Earth cannot be detected by any optical experiment, though the Earth is revolving around the Sun.”

Liars cherry pick only part of the sentence.

The first Selenelion eclipse

Flat earth liars claim the Selenelion eclipse was discovered in 1666. In reality the were recorded and writtent about by Pliny the Elder, Hipparchus, and Cleomedes. Many centuries prior.

Authentic Lunar Rock, “Big Mulley”, Apollo 16.

Moon rocks and petrified wood

Liars claim that NASA gave a lunar rock to someone in The Netherlands. The claimed recipient was former Prime Minister Willem Drees. It was claimed to have been given to him by U.S. ambassador J. William Middendorf. However, NASA did not give out samples after Apollo 11, it was a couples before they started giving out sample. There is no way this could have been an official sample.

Prime Minister Willem Drees grandson said that his grandfather was mostly deaf and blind at the time so it’s possible he misunderstood something.

There are many authentic lunar rock samples. Stop lying and look at the analysis of these.


Apollo astronauts swearing on the Bible

Liars claim that all the Apollo astronauts refused to swear on the Bible that they went to the moon.

Many of the Apollo astronauts are Christians. A knowledgeable Christian knows that Matthew 5 says not to swear on anything.

However, Eugene Cernan, Alan Bean, and Edgar Mitchell did. Flat earthers lie.

Robert Simmons and Photoshop

2002 composite Blue Marble

Lying flat earthers claim that Robert Simmons, a NASA employee, said that all photographs of the earth from space were composites. Even the ones from the 1968-1972 Apollo missions. Which were years before Photoshop or any quality computer graphics editing of photographs existed.

1972 Single frame photograph of the earth

Robert Simmons was referring to exactly one image, the 2002 “Blue Marble” . Which was generated from many photos from satellites, an impossibility if the earth is flat. He was not talking about any other photographs like the 1972 Blue Marble photograph.

NASA never claims the 2002 Blue Marble is a single frame photograph. Go look at those photographs to see what the earth looks like.

Liars like to point out that they see copy-paste effects or letters in the clouds. It doesn’t matter. The image is openly identified as a computer edited image.
