B.o.B Believes In His Flat Earth Theory So Much, He’ll Argue With An Esteemed Scientist

News

Science wasn’t everyone’s best subject in grade school. Although some aspects of astrology and geology were hard, one of the biggest takeaways might have been that the earth is actually round. It looks like B.o.B. wasn’t paying attention during that lesson, because the Atlanta rapper insists Earth is flat.

Fans may have been a little confused on Sunday (Jan. 24) when the rapper tweeted his argument as to why he thought the world was flat. “The cities in the background are approx. 16miles apart… where is the curve ? please explain this,” he tweeted.

Immediately fans swarmed his mentions dispelling his theory, and although the “Headband” rapper acknowledged them, he insisted “there’s no way you can see all the evidence and not know.” B.o.B. then flooded his timeline with what he believes to be evidence of “flat Earth.” He posted a number of equations and graphics, along with his own images leading to the conclusion that science had misled the world. He also added to his theory with a series of statements. “No matter how high in elevation you are… the horizon is always eye level … sorry cadets… I didn’t wanna believe it either,” he continued.

 

 

For the most part, the Internet just laughed it off, but Neil deGrasse Tyson, an esteemed astrophysicist, joined the discussion to correct B.o.B. “Flat Earth is a problem only when people in charge think that way. No law stops you from regressively basking in it,” he responded. B.o.B. was having a tough time hearing him, but the astrophysicist kept explaining. “Duude — to be clear: Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music.”

 

But B.o.B is still not having it. “You can regurgitate force fed information all day…, still doesn’t change physics,” he tweeted in his last attempt to sway fans. By the looks of it, there is no changing his mind. But for the record, the Earth’s spherical shape was first proposed in 6th century BCE, and later proven in the 16th century.
