Shaq Explains Why He Thinks The Earth Is Flat
When Bobby Ray brought back the long dormant flat earth theory last year, we thought it was either a desperate bid for attention or proof of some sort of mental disorder.
But since then the fraternity of prominent flat earth believers has expanded to include NBA players Kyrie Irving, Draymond Green and Wilson Chandler.
Now, Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal has cosigned the talk of earth as a giant pancake.
“It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat,” O’Neal said on his “The Big Podcast With Shaq. “Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ‘Oh, Columbus discovered America,’ but when he got there, there were some fair-skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So, what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t discover America. So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this shit is flat to me. I’m just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.”
Is this all some kind of joke?
