Logan Paul Is Joining Flat Earthers On An Expedition To The Antarctic To Find The 'Edge Of The World'

It's pretty unclear whether Logan Paul is serious or joking in a new YouTube documentary exploring flat-earth conspiracy theories, but the thing that is clear is that it's infuriating.


Paul, who some consider to probably be a sociopath, has published this video that is causing conflicting feedback.

Paul recently attended the flat-earth convention in Denver and told Forbes:

"I think I'm coming out of the Flat Earth closet."

"If I'm going to put my name out there (as a Flat Earth supporter), I want to know the facts."
"The fact that we haven't been to the moon in over 50 years, the fact that the moon emits its own light."
"Some of the best scientists can't explain gravity; Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, in the end, do they even know?"

Actually, every science can explain gravity fairly easily.

But go off.

Paul decided he was going to join a flat-earth expedition to Antarctica in order to be "more informed."







Flat-earther Jay Decasby believes that measuring the coast of Antarctica will somehow prove the earth is flat.

"It had been done by early sailors (before the UN was established and set up its Antarctic Treaty which essentially made it illegal for independent and private exploration of Antarctica) who managed to make 60k+ miles, which irrefutably proves the flat earth model, but like all the other mountains of evidence for flat earth this is not enough for ballers today. If we can get to the coast of Antarctica and sail all the way around it, we will get the distance that will prove it's the outer edges of flat earth and refute entirely every single argument anyone can possibly try to pitch for the sun-worshipping cult of heliocentrism."

It just gets worse.

Robbie Davidson, another flat-earther, described Antarctica as the following:

"When we look at Antarctica if you take a globe and you squish it down, the Antarctic would go all the way around the Earth. It's kind of like an ice shore and it's very, very large. It's not like you just go there, and you can just peek over it."









It's still very unclear whether or not Paul is joining this expedition to be a total jerk or if he's actually genuinely invested.

But the documentary is up for interpretation.







Either way, who can really focus on that when real flat-earthers exist in 2019?
