Dwayne Kellum conducts his own experiments with balloons to prove that the earth is not a spinning ball. I think you’ll agree that the simplicity of his videos makes them all the more compelling.
The Flat Earth Theory
There’s disinformation galore on this topic. On one hand we’ve got the clearly deceptive NASA, and all the multiple worlds/space/alien propaganda by Hollywood. But it’s (really) hard to imagine earth being anything but that round globe that sat on the teacher’s desk when we were kids. Plus, the massive campaign to create a constant state of cognitive dissonance leaves us wary of yet another new, radical idea; that the earth might not actually be a round, rotating ball, circling the sun in infinite space. Well, it does me, anyway.
Nevermind the internet, have you just watched television lately? More than predictive programming and indoctrination, the deliberate creation of a mass state of cognitive dissonance is clear. My husband and I have recently allowed ourselves to be entertained (please don’t judge) by the series “The 100” and the “The 4400″… both with serious predictive programming for transhumanism, quantum theoretical science, mysticism, homosexuality and just all around godlessness. They all carry the same themes of occult mysticism; technology achieves spirituality, no true hope, quantum mysticism, where people become gods through advanced technology. Drink your koolaide folks, and forget about that God you’ve heard about. Forget about anyone offering you salvation outside of your own means. And these stories, that involve bending time and shifting reality, cause us to feel more and more like there’s no solid footing (cognitive dissonance). People in that state are easy to control. It’s a well known tactic used by dictators, communists, the Nazis..
But I digress…
So What Do We Do With Paradigm Altering Topics Like Flat Earth?
So what are we to do? Go back into our cocoon of safe reality and ignore it all? Obviously I don’t think that’s the answer. The scriptures comes to mind “My people perish for a lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6 “We are not unaware of his devices.” 2 Cor 2:11 “Be wise as serpents, gentle as doves.” Matt 10:16. We need to look at these things and we need to prayerfully sort them out.
So, while I’ve learned to be cautious with topics that cause great shifts in our perceived reality, the flat earth theory does present some compelling arguments. Committing to it does result in a shift of worldview that requires some adjustments, but if truth is what we’re after, we need to look at things, especially things that find no argument in scripture.
Think For Yourself
Popular flat earth proponent, Eric Dubay is from the New Age spirituality school of thought and Mark Sargent, while professing Christianity, has a logo that uses freemasonry symbolism. Both seem to be nice guys, but are they ‘gatekeepers’? Some questionable ministries are also espousing the flat earth. But again, does that necessarily make it’s false. So, I’ve gone back and forth on this. I’ll leave it to you to decide. but, I was inspired by this man in California. Instead of taking anybody’s word on things, Dwayne Kellum is sending up balloons and gathering information on his own. Here’s some of his footage. I especially like the sun lapse videos. It doesn’t look like the sun is quite as far away as they tell us, does it? I’ll include the link to his channel below.
