Flat Earth theories on Netflix, YouTube and iTunes



Flat Earthers are having a moment (Picture: Delta-V Productions)Ever since Behind The Curve arrived on Netflix last month, we’ve been curious about the Flat Earth society, what they believe and what they have been able to prove.
So if you want to know more about why people are starting to take Flat Earthers seriously, here’s eight places were you can get ahead of the curve.

Behind The Curve (2018) – Netflix

Well, duh. This is the Flat Earth documentary that everyone’s been talking about.
In it, Bob Knodel, a Flat Earther and YouTuber, attempts to show the world is a disc through an experiment with a gyroscope, but it doesn’t necessarily go to plan.
      2. Eric Dubay: 200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball (2016) – YouTube
Watched by nearly 750,000 people, this is considered one of the most popular YouTube videos challenging the perceptions that are currently held about the earth.
University professor Eric Dubay has written six books about the Flat Earth theory and presents 200 reasons why he believes the earth is flat.

    3. Is The Earth Actually Flat? (2014) – YouTube
Created by VSauce YouTuber Michael Stevens, this YouTube video presents some seriously compelling evidence for and against the theories in a bid to get to the bottom of the debate. Join over 25million people in watching his very visual exploration of the Flat Earth theory.

     4. Flat Earth Conspiracy – Earth Is A Construct (2016-2019) – Podcast
Lori Frary presents over 70 detailed discussions: from the exploration of energy to history of the theories and the supernatural. The podcast is now four years old but continues to stay up-to-date with developments on the theory.
     5. The Flat Earth Podcast (2017-2019) – Podcast
This weekly audio podcast by Curious J & DITRH takes a strong approach to their discussions calling astronomy a ‘joke’ and a ‘lie’ and suggesting that Disney is more credible than NASA.
    6. Road Trippin (2017) – Podcast 
NBA player Kyrie Irving comments on the Flat Earth theory in Episode 7 of the Road Trippin podcast. Yes, it did prompt a public apology, but Kyrie isn’t the only celebrity who believes theory since Shaquille O’Neal and Tila Tequila have also publicly shared their support.
   7. Flat Earth PROOF: Spirit Level Flight Experiment (2017) – YouTube
This experiment, conducted by Flat Earther D. Marble went viral in the last two years. In a bid to provide scientific backing for the theory, Daryl submitted a new experiment to the society by taking a spirit level on a flight.
He challenged the theory that we’re on a spinning globe by suggesting that the plane should be dipping its nose forward in order to compensate. What he discovers is rather interesting.
   8. Flat Earth vs Round Earth (2019) – National Geographic
You can count on National Geographic to provide a trustworthy analysis of the evidence for and against the Flat Earth theory. Uploaded to YouTube as recently as last month, this short and sharp exploration ties in with the hysteria surrounding Behind The Curve.
