David Weiss is a researcher and content creator who argues that Earth is flat.
I am not convinced that Earth is flat, but I have no idea how to prove that Earth is a sphere spinning in space. I don’t have the skillset and my own observations are not sufficient.
Belief or fact?
Basically, I am unable to prove that Earth is a sphere spinning in space, so I am forced to believe what I’m told.
However, I continue to accept the established view primarily because I find the flat-Earth arguments less persuasive, and because collateral arguments like
- Valentina Zharkova’s research on solar activity or
- Patrick Moore’s understanding of Earth’s history of climatic changes
are more compelling.
That said, I certainly enjoy this particular line of discourse because it challenges me to hold up a mirror at everything I think I know. That individuals like David get ostracised is enough reason for me to listen to them.
In the words of David Rasnick, it’s wise to guard oneself against the tyranny of dogma.
After all, what if he is right?
