Terre Planus, convenor, Central Victorian Chapter of the Flat Earth Collective
(Actually, Peter Ryan, Castlemaine)
I write to express my deep concern that people who share my belief that the Earth is Flat are not afforded equal time and space in today’s biased media, including your esteemed paper.
I know that scientists all over the world have been trying to convince us of the truth of their roundist theories for centuries now – but how do we really know that they are right?
They publish pictures of what they call ‘The Earth’ supposedly taken from space, but there is a strong body of thought that these so-called ‘Space Flights’ are actually part of a huge American and Chinese conspiracy designed to make us believe that these industrialised nations are all powerful. The pictures are mock-ups. Unfortunately, our government seems to have succumbed to this fabrication of the truth.
I demand that we Flat Earth Believers be given equal media time and space as the Roundists are given. Simply because we don’t accept the science does not make us wrong!
I demand respect. I am sick of people disagreeing with me, sometimes even mocking me simply because my views are different.
As I write this, I stand in solidarity with my fellow citizens – politicians included – who do not accept the science behind human-induced climate change. In fact, I suspect that many of them would, perhaps secretly, concur with my belief in the flatness of the Earth.
I look forward to a more balanced coverage in future in your paper.
