Latest 'Flat Earth' theory says Australia is FAKE - and if you think you've been there, you're wrong
The Daily Mirror ^ | Jeff Parsons

There's a growing number of people who seem to think the world is, in fact, flat.

But it gets better. They also insist that Australia is actually just one big hoax.

According to a viral Facebook rant, the entire country (and presumably the 24 million people that live there) is completely FAKE.

The idea resurfaced at a recent gathering of so-called Flat Earthers in Birmingham recently where over 200 people came together to confirm to each other that the Earth is nothing more than a giant pancake.

The origin of the "fake Australia" post started on Reddit back in 2017 and was written by a Shelley Floryd. But it appears to be back in the minds of the spherically-challenged at the moment.

"Australia is not real," the rant begins.

"It's a hoax, made for us to believe that Britain moved over their criminals to someplace. In reality, all these criminals were loaded off the ships into the waters, drowning before they could see land ever again.

"It's a coverup [sic] for one of the greatest mass murders in history."

Moreover, the post reckons that all Australians are nothing more than computer generated personas and if you've ever been Down Under yourself: "you're terribly wrong".

Hilariously, the pilots are apparently all in on it - and have just been flying you to parts of South America all these years.

Flat Earth theories have been shot down by just about everyone capable of rational thought, but the theory is still enjoying a current resurgence.

Over 200 conspiracy theorists gathered at a hotel in Birmingham for the UK’s first Flat Earth Convention.

The convention, which took place over three days, saw nine speakers take to the stage to explain their theory as to why the Earth is flat.

Heck, I wish they’d come and have a convention in Texas ... I would think that it would be the most entertaining three days that I could spend ...

They must be right as the flat earth extends only a few miles past the UK and the rest is fake or is it a few miles past Europe and the rest is fake?

My theory requires no mass conspiracy. Occam’s razor. The earth is round and spinning.

It’s true. Australia was just a fictional place invented by Hollywood for the Crocodile Dundee movies, and later for Steve Erwin’s show.

Nope, they hink NASA is faking photographs of the earth.

Something NASA admits.

And today, they found a strange repetitious bit of fakery in the fake clouds painted on nearly all the earth composites, to go along with how they write ‘SEX” in the clouds!

Actually, Australia *used* to exist. It no longer does.

All those folks on the east coast caused it to tip over.

This is awesome. I was in Sydney for a month, back in the 90s, and enjoyed myself quite a lot. Now I have to find out what part of South America I actually visited.

Nonsense. If the earth was flat, my cat would have knocked everything off of it by now.

These are the types who believe that Trump puts babies in cages.

OK, I give up—where did that strange Australian accent come from? ;-)

Most of my relatives moved there. I’ve got two generations of Australian cousins. Or so I thought.

Its sad to think they are all gone now. The ones who come over and visit are obviously androids.

IOW, pro-Russian skinheads are behind the flat-earth bull****. Thanks Simon Green.
