Flat Earth conspiracy theorists have come up with a campaign that is very inventive as it catches the eyes of motorists traveling along the road thanks to billboards and it has now spread into Oklahoma. Anyone driving down the highway during the next month close to the Tulsa International Airport might see an electronic billboard that asks whether the Earth is flat.
FLAT EARTH GROUP BELIEVES EARTH IS NOT ROUND
Previous billboards have been seen in Philadelphia, and they were put up earlier on this month and said “Research Flat Earth.” The message the conspiracy theorists are trying to get across is that the Earth may not be round, as suggested, but flat instead.
The message also gives information that leads to a Facebook group that gives people information as to why the Earth may be flat, not round.
The billboard in question was purchased by the group who believes the Earth may be flat and it was one of their most dedicated of members who paid out $1,500 to take one months’ worth of advertising space on the billboard.
CAMPAIGN TO SPREAD TO DENVER AND PHOENIX
The same Facebook group has said that they will deliver billboards to regions including Phoenix and Denver, and are asking that people driving in these regions keep an eye out for them posted along the roadside.
They also said that many more communities are being considered for the same campaign, to spread the message that the Earth may be flat and to get people to go to the Facebook group and check out the information.
The Flat Earth group said that people might want to keep their eyes open over the 4 July holiday weekend as more messages could crop up.
FLAT EARTH THEORY LINKED TO MARK SARGENT`S ENCLOSED EARTH THEORY
The group sprang to life following an appearance by Mark Sargent on Coast Insiders in 2015, and this was when he gave details about the earth being flat, and this is now a concept that over recent years has become very popular. Sargent talked about breakthrough work on what is called the Enclosed Earth Theory, where he talked about the fact that there were clues that pointed to the fact that Earth is a contained system that stretches many thousands of miles wide while being 400 miles high.
This was an interest of his that he developed while studying conspiracies about a flat earth. He also talked about the fact that a source who had worked for NASA said that the space agency knows full well that Earth is not shaped round.
