USA: Flat Earther Spent $20,000 And Accidentally Proved The Earth Is Round. D'OH!

What goes around, comes around.
Would that roundabout description of karma still hold true if the Earth was flat? A group of Flat Earthers trying to prove earthy flatness got a big dose of comes-aroundness when the $20,000 gizmo they purchased for that purpose kept coming up “round.” They could have spent far less with the same result by using a Magic 8-Ball … if those were flat. What does karma have against Flat Earthers? Let’s find out.

A documentary currently showing on Netflix called “Behind the Curve” follows members and leaders of the Flat Earth movement as they attempt to prove their beliefs and gather new followers. One of those leaders is Bob Knodel, who claims his background as an engineer and a pilot have convinced him that the Earth is flat and inspired him to create a YouTube channel cleverly named “Globebusters.” If anyone should know how to prove the globe is a flat glob, it’s an engineer and a pilot … right?

According to Newsweek, Knodel and his followers managed to purchase a gyroscope … not one of those fun spinning toys you played with as kids but a $20,000 highly-accurate laser gyroscope that they planned to use to disprove the scientific fact that a round Earth spinning at 15 degrees per hour causes a gyroscope to drift the same 15 degrees per hour. Knodel fired up the gyroscope and stood back. When he saw the results, he said:
“We don’t want to blow this, you know? When you’ve got $20,000 in this freaking gyro. If we dumped what we found right now, it would be bad? It would be bad. What I just told you was confidential.”
That doesn’t sound anything like “Eureka!” That’s because it was more like a “Eureka … not!” moment for Knodel. What he saw that was “bad” and should be kept “confidential” was the laser gyroscope drifting 15 degrees per hour just like it was supposed to. So, Knodel had an awakening, admitted the Earth really is round, shut down his YouTube channel, picked up his flat globes and went home … right?
“Now, obviously we were taken aback by that – ‘Wow, that’s kind of a problem.’ We obviously were not willing to accept that, and so we started looking for easy to disprove it was actually registering the motion of the Earth.”
If you don’t like the results, blame the machine! (See a video clip here.) Knodel should have gone into politics … on second thought, maybe it’s a good thing he didn’t. Ignoring the drift and refusing to drift away from his non-scientific belief, he kept repeating it, hoping to get a different result. Many of you will recognize this as a popular definition of insanity … Knodel probably believes that this only applies to Round Earthers. Needless to say, the drifting $20,000 gyroscope wins again and again.

The documentary also shows Knodel’s channel co-host Jeran Campanella conducting a different experiment using a light pointed through three circles cut into boards at the same height, with the boards being far apart. If the Earth is flat, the beam will pass through all three holes. And if the Earth is round? Campanella saw the beam miss the last hole and said:
“Interesting. That’s interesting.”
At least he didn’t blame the boards … or the saw … or the laser pointer. (See a clip here.)

At this point, even a flat Magic 8-Ball would say, “Don’t bother asking again.” March 8, 2019: In a recently released Netflix doco called “Behind the Curve” Bob Knodel uses his fancy gyroscope and ends up provin’ that the Earth is in fact, ROUND. Transcript is shared below.

Well f**k. Fancy that!?

In the doco, Knodel says:

What we found is, when we turned on that gyroscope, we found that we were picking up a drift, a 15-degree per hour drift. Now, obviously we were taken aback by that – ‘Wow, that’s kind of a problem.’

We obviously were not willing to accept that, and so we started looking for easy ways to disprove it was actually registering the motion of the Earth.

Haha good plan mate! Use 20 grand worth of gear to prove a scientific fact, and say yeah nah, f**k that, let’s figure somethin’ else out!

In another scene Bob says to one of his Flat Earther mates:
Nah, ya don’t wanna blow it… You especially don’t wanna blow it on camera!

Bob continues:
When you’ve got $20,000 in this freaking gyro. If we dumped what we found right now, it would be bad? It would be bad. What I just told you was confidential.

Confidential? It’s on Netflix mate, being beamed around the world… Yes, a-ROUND the f**ken world haha.

ABC News published June 27, 2018: Inside a Flat Earth convention, where nearly everyone believes Earth isn't round. Many believers at the Flat Earth International Conference, an educational seminar about our planet, support a theory that Earth is flat.

Tech Insider published Jan 9, 2019: An Astronomer Responds To Flat Earth Theory. Business Insider UK sat down with Dr Stuart Clark, who spoke to us about a range of subjects regarding astronomy and astrophysics. We asked him what he thought of flat earth theory, a school of thought which believes that the earth is not spherical but flat.

"All our physics is constructed now, the physics of orbits of things going around the earth is all constructed with this three dimensional world. And the pictures from space show our world as a globe and yet somehow there are some people that still seem to believe the earth is flat."

"My own pet theory is that they’re doing it for comic effect."

National Geographic published Jan 16, 2019: Flat Earth vs. Round Earth. The Ancient Greeks concluded Earth was a sphere, which has been validated by scientists ever since. Despite this, there is a movement growing claiming the Earth is flat.

Big Think published May 23, 2018: Hey flat Earthers, it's time to put your theory to bed once and for all! A curious stargazer by the name of Oscar has submitted a question to Big Think's 'Ask an astronomer' series with NASA's Michelle Thaller. Oscar wants to know: "What would be the easiest proof that the Earth isn’t flat, that I could come back with whenever I get challenged on this issue?" Thaller sets the record straight.

👇 RELATED INFO I wrote. 👇

The Flat-Earth theory is the same kind of lunacy that is funding Greta Thunberg and the end of the world movement. The eco-fascist are wealthy Communist who hate Capitalism and the middle class. These are the same people who are pushing these two agendas on our youth. Our youth are growing up believing the earth is flat and believing that the end of the world is upon us. They are imposing their psychosis on our youth who are already on the verge of wanting to commit suicide.

In Greta Thunberg's speech to all of us she said, "We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!"

I want to you to stop and think about what she said in the quote I shared above. Just chew on it for a bit. Now what is the natural law on this planet? GROWTH (increasing, expanding, developing, maturing). Is the Universe expanding as we speak? Yes. Now what is the opposite of growth? They hate profit too. Why on earth would any person start a business just to break-even or report a loss? Right? Do you want to earn the same income you were earning when you were 18 years old when you're 30, 40, 50 years old? No, right? That means that you want to GROW your income. You don't want to just earn enough to pay your living expenses (break-even) or be in debt (loss), right?

And who does determine what our living expenses will be? Communist hate the middle class because it's our gateway to GROW from being poor to wealthy if we wanted to improve our lives. The Communist (Marxist) call us the bourgeoisie, the snobby middle class who controls most of the economy, and controls most of societal's wealth and means of production. Yes, we the middle class are the majority. But that's how the wealthy Communist think. The good life for me, but not for thee. Communist determine how you will live, what you will eat, how much you will eat, oooh and how much income you are allowed to earn. They want to place the middle class at a disadvantage with no means to progress in life. Quite opposite to what Progressivism claims to believe.

But it's okay for them to grow their money, their net worth. It's okay for them to live a life of luxury. But not the rest of us. How dare we want to grow our national economy and be prosperous. Or how dare we want to grow our personal economy, our net worth and live prosperously. No, they want us to be poor living like cavemen did in prehistoric times, eating bugs to save the world. Meanwhile, they fly all over the world in their PRIVATE JETS burning massive fossil fuel, living in their mansions burning massive fossil fuel, driving cars burning fossil fuel.

As an aside, the battery for electric cars are charged by electricity from fossil fuel, coal plants. PLUS, electric car batteries are NOT BIODEGRADABLE. Solar panels are NOT BIODEGRADABLE either. Just more massive toxic waste added to the toxic waste pollution we do need to address today. Oooh but it's okay for them to joke about killing us climate deniers while they are actually contributing to poisoning the earth they claim to love with what they call 'eco-friendly' massive non-biodegradable toxic waste. What the Climate Activists invent to supposedly help the environment is man-made and not biodegradable. Fossil fuels have been used since the beginning of time. But eco-fascism has nothing to do with the climate or the environment. Eco-fascist are using our love for the environment to overthrow Capitalism and implement Communism. Can you see how twisted their minds are? Dealing with these eco-fascist is like being in a fun house at an amusement park. :/

Greta Thunberg's parents are wealthy Communist who support Antifa. Her father is an actor and mother is an opera singer.

The United States has more coal reserves than any other country in the world. In fact, one-fourth of all the known coal in the world is in the United States. The United States has more coal that can be mined than the rest of the world has oil that can be pumped from the ground. We have enough to last more than 250 years!

Currently, coal is mined in 25 of the 50 states.

Coal is used primarily in the United States to generate electricity. In fact, it is burned in power plants to produce more than half of the electricity we use. A stove uses about half a ton of coal a year. A water heater uses about two tons of coal a year. And a refrigerator, that’s another half-ton a year. Even though you may never see coal, you use several tons of it every year!

Coal is not only our most abundant fossil fuel, it is also the one with perhaps the longest history.
Marxism is the movement founded by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels who wrote the Communist Manifesto. Marxism has always failed miserably when applied to rule over a nation with 100 million deaths due to Communist government sanctioned mass murder and starvation. (emphasis mine)

Encyclopedia Britannica: The Communist Manifesto, German Manifest Der Kommunistischen Partei, (1848; “Manifesto of the Communist Party”), pamphlet written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels to serve as the platform of the Communist League. It became one of the principal programmatic statements of the European socialist and communist parties in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Manifesto embodied the authors’ materialistic conception of history (“The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles”), and it surveyed that history from the age of feudalism down to 19th-century capitalism, which was destined, they declared, to be overthrown and replaced by a workers’ society. The communists, the vanguard of the working class, constituted the section of society that would accomplish the “abolition of private property” and “raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class.”

The Manifesto opens with the dramatic words “A spectre is haunting Europe—the spectre of communism” and ends by stating, “The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workingmen of all countries, unite.”
I will forever share this disgusting 2010 Climate Change campaign from British Climate Activists who are funding Greta Thunberg. Nothing has changed. This is their mindset. This is their idea of a JOKE. Just like the producers of the movie, The Hunt called kidnapping, hunting and killing deplorable Trump supporters for sport a parody, a joke. (emphasis mine)

RT published on Oct 5, 2010: Appearing to blow up schoolchildren in front of their classmates is an unlikely way of trying to convince people to reduce pollution. But when British eco-campaigners tried to put comedy into cutting carbon - the joke backfired badly. It is tongue-in-cheek, but some of the scenes you'll see are a quite gory. It was created on behalf of the Ten-Ten environmental campaign, to spur people into reducing their carbon emissions by ten per cent. British Meteorologist Piers Corbyn told RT that environmentalists are hitting new depths.

HowTheWorldWorks published on Oct 1, 2010: Epic Green Fail. This is the most disturbing insight into the mind of Environmentalists. Do what they want, or they'll kill you.
👇 This is what the eco-fascists are pushing on humanity. 👇

LiberalBias100 published Jan 23, 2009: United Nations Agenda 21 explained very well. Including implications it will have on humanity. Opinions within the video come in some cases from those that were in on the negotiations. Truly an interesting watch.

I would like to share a snippet from the UN Agenda 21 video I've shared with you above. Starting at 5:43 I typed the information that was shared in the video below:

Question has been asked many times how the people who are perpetrating these things expect to do this and make it last? And the answer to that is that you steal a generation of children and you indoctrinate them so that they accept these ideas and they become Global Citizens in the coming Global Village. UNESCO came out and declared 2005 - 2015 the decade of education for sustainable development. But they go on to say that it will encompass the 40 chapters of UN Agenda 21. That is your US federal national curriculum. The entire purpose of 2nd grade social studies is to transfer loyalty from the family to the government. And teach them about sustainable economic consumption. Students construct their own understandings of reality and realize that objective reality is not knowable. So why bother. The truth is the truth which keep men FREE is being suppressed in order to prop up the attitude training agenda. And it moves on to say, this is our new math called Connected Mathematics, Standard 3 tells us that students learns that mathematics is man-made, that it is arbitrary, and good solutions are arrived at by consensus among those who are considered expert. Most of us assume that 2 + 2 is always going to = 4. You're wrong, we might reach a new consensus. How well does it work? Well they tell you. In the teachers guide, in the back, it tells us that, "Because the curriculum does not emphasize arithmetic computations done by hand, some students may not do as well on tests assessing computational skills. We believe such a trade-off in favor of CMP is very much in the students' advantage in... the world of work." Our children are mathematically illiterate on purpose. How do I know on purpose? Why isn't this just a basic bad idea? Because the Sustainable Development Plan tells us so, "Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes. In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability."
If you're a regular visitor to my Global Awareness 101 website, then you should know that I always find a way to tie together all the information I provide to you like a neat and tidy bow. Now can you understand why there are so many people on the planet that believe the earth is flat. They are taught to "construct their own understanding of reality."  Advocates for UN Agenda 21 are using Greta Thunberg to influence our youth. That's why Greta Thunberg promoted an international Climate Strike getting millions of students to ditch school, forgo their studies to participate in a worldwide Climate Strike protest. Many schools forced the students to participate in the Climate Strike protest.  Kids were happy it was legal to ditch school even if they didn't believe in the cause. The government run public schools were collaboratively pushing their UN Agenda 21. Private schools where mostly wealthy families send their children did not participate in the worldwide Climate Strike student protest.

Greta Thunberg and her Climate activism is teaching children to be a victim, to be irresponsible, to be depressed and live in fear. Greta is also teaching our youth to hate Capitalism and embrace Communism with movements like Antifa that hate the fascist middle class, the industrious, self-sustaining bourgeoisie.

How about planting trees. How about encouraging young people to become scientists in order to invent better technology for cleaner consumption. How about starting a movement to clean up the garbage thrown all over the streets and sidewalks and freeways in your city. Greta Thunberg does not give a crap about our environment. All she has done is yell at all of us, blaming us for everything. Greta said we're taking away her childhood because she has to travel the world to spread her message. Meanwhile, she is robbing other youth of their childhood imposing her psychosis on them and forcing them to miss school too.

I'm paraphrasing what Ghandi said here, each one of us 7.5 BILLION people on this planet is the change we want to see in this world. Each person can start contributing by not throwing their garbage out of their car window onto the roads. and not throwing their garbage on sidewalks or park grounds. ALL of that garbage you throw on the ground ends up being washed down storm drains that pollutes the ocean with your personal toxic waste that was very preventable to begin with if you were a responsible human being. An entitled person illegally dumps their garbage in public spaces for others to clean up and then ACT like they give a damn about the environment. No one owes you a damn thing. If you can wipe your own butt, then you can dispose of your own garbage properly like the rest of us do. Would you like us to dump our garbage in your home, your bedroom?

I also want to point out that NOT ALL people with higher incomes are highly educated, that is a misnomer. The people who already have established higher incomes have the nerve to restrain the rest of us from achieving the same financial success as them AND they have the nerve to point the finger at us hurting the environment when they state clearly in their Sustainable Development Plan that "people who have higher incomes CONSUME MORE RESOURCES." That's why Communists (Marxists) HATE the middle class. The middle class are independent thinkers, self-sustaining, creatively thriving on implementing new ideas for making this world a better place for future generations. With Capitalism, you can go from being dirt poor, coming up with an idea that can catapult you through the middle class into the upper echelon of the wealthy upper class. With Communism, the majority of the population is equal in poverty while the elite who told you this was for the good of the world control how you live. (emphasis mine)
UPDATE 9/28/19 at 6:38pm: So this just happened. After posting this message, I left the house to run errands. As I was driving around town, I was flipping through my usual radio stations and stopped at KOST 103.5. i-Heart Radio has taken over the local KOST station and is broadcasting the Global Citizens Festival 2019 live from Central Park in New York. I had NO IDEA this was happening today. I hear the guy interviewing the performers backstage and he says something like, people are afraid, they get really scared when they hear about 'activism' or 'activist promoting something' but this fun, right? We're having fun, right? This guy is using reverse psychology. Kind of like Pinocchio and other youth being led to "Pleasure Island". Watch that part of the movie to see what I mean.

Well, I think this Global Citizen movement embodies all the markings of a cult pushing a totalitarian utopian nightmare called UN Agenda 21 that can only be sustained through oppression that I will not be participating in. I want to remain a sovereign being who has free will. I refuse to worship the State who takes away our free will to make our own conscious choices and actions to become robots.
Philosophy Terms wrote on the subject of Free Will:

When Ted Bundy was finally proven to have killed dozens of women in cold blood, there was only one way he could have escaped the sternest punishment (which he did receive) – the insanity defense. Most of us agree that people are only responsible for their actions as long as they have the ability to “freely choose” them; and our legal system allows that if you are sufficiently deranged, you may not have this ability. This capacity to choose is what we call “free will” and people throughout history have considered it the most unique and definitive quality of human beings, the one that supposedly shows we have souls, or consciousness, and makes us morally responsible and free, in contrast to animals.
UPDATE 9/29/19 at 1:52am: Added tweet below.
