In a recent interview on her podcast Jesus, Guns, Babies, Kandiss Taylor, a newly elected GOP District Chair in Georgia, delved into an unusual topic: her skepticism of the Earth being round.
Alongside her guests, David Weiss—best known as "Flat Earth Dave"—and self-proclaimed "Christian constitutional conservative" Matt Long, Taylor explored biblical "evidence" supporting the notion that our planet is unequivocally flat.
During the podcast interview, Taylor expressed her frustration with what she perceives as relentless promotion of the round Earth concept by what she referred to as "Big Globe." According to Taylor, those who defend the spherical Earth lack proper knowledge about it.
You can hear what Taylor said in the video below.
“All the globes, everywhere. I turn on the TV, there’s globes in the background… Everywhere there’s globes. You see them all the time, it’s constant. My children will be like ‘Mama, globe, globe, globe, globe’ — they’re everywhere.”
“That’s what they do, to brainwash. For me if it’s not a conspiracy. If it is real, why are you pushing so hard everywhere I go? Every store, you buy a globe, there’s globes everywhere. Every movie, every TV show, news media — why?"
"More and more I’m like, it doesn’t make sense.”
Taylor's unconventional convictions extend beyond her beliefs about the Earth's shape.
Much like numerous Trump supporters, she adamantly asserts that the 2020 presidential election was marred by fraud, resulting in an unjust usurpation of power from Donald Trump. This belief serves as a foundation for Taylor's adoption of the strategies employed by Trump during her own unsuccessful campaign for Georgia's governorship in 2022.
Many have mocked the known conspiracy theorist.
Doubts about the Earth's spherical shape have permeated diverse corners of our global community, with individuals rejecting scientific consensus and advocating for a flat Earth.
While precise figures regarding the number of convinced individuals remain elusive, proponents like Weiss often assert, albeit without substantiating evidence, that there are millions more adherents in the shadows, including prominent personalities from Hollywood and even commercial airline pilots.
The proliferation of online communities boasting hundreds of thousands of followers and the inundation of flat Earth content creators on platforms like YouTube, reaching millions of viewers, further illustrate the magnitude of this phenomenon.
