Bryce Mitchell, a flat-earther UFC fighter, has become the butt of the joke this week…
“Clearly been punched in the ring a few too many times,” joked one commenter.
“Yeah probably shouldn’t listen to a guy that gets hit in the head for a living,” agreed another.
Bryce Mitchell said he can prove the controversial theory.
Scroll on to find out his plan…
Now, we’ve heard a lot of conspiracy theories over the years…
But, they seem to be getting crazier and crazier…
For example, some people believe a conspiracy that the moon landing was fake.
In the 1960s, during the Cold War, the USA and Russia were heavily involved in a space race. They wanted to see who could get the furthest and who could be the best.
That eventually happened in 1969 when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and the USA claimed victory in the race, but conspiracy theorists don’t think that they really got there…
Even though 2 countries from opposite sides of the globe were involved in the race, there were several failed attempts and it is a fact, with photo evidence, they think it was fake.
Also, some people believe that King Charles is a distant descendant of Vlad the Impaler, who was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Let’s not forget, Dracula was a fictional novel written by Stoker in 1897. It was not a biography. However, this is enough for conspiracy theorists.
They believe, despite evidence to the contrary, that King Charles is, therefore, a vampire; a mythical creature that cannot go outside in the light and likes to feed on human flesh. Sure, that seems likely.
Then, of course, there’s the conspiracy theory that the earth is flat.
People who believe in this conspiracy don’t think you can fly around it in a circular direction and they genuinely believe that it is flat and has edges.
It’s a theory that come from a man without serious credentials named Samuel Rowbotham.
In the 19th century, Rowbotham claimed that the Earth was flat and when pulled up on it, he ran away from some questions that he couldn’t answer, refused to take part in challenges and lied when he finally had to do a test.
Yet despite that, many people now, over a century later, still think that he could be right.
But, this is one conspiracy theory that we can be sure isn’t true.
As it has been scientifically proven that the Earth is not flat.
The moon is round, the sun is round, and so is the Earth.
In fact, we have known that the Earth is not flat for over 2,000 years.
The Greek philosopher Aristotle realized that the Earth was round way back in 350 BC when he wrote On The Heavens. He made the point that simply by observing the stars we are able to tell that the Earth is round.
But despite all the evidence that the earth isn’t flat, some people still continue to believe it is…
And even go a step further by trying to prove their beliefs and often, it doesn’t end up going well, as one person recently found out…
UFC fighter Bryce Mitchell recently took to Instagram to share his view.
But it’s safe to say that people did not take his side…
He also placed himself in opposition to Joe Rogan, who had been mocking flat earthers on his podcast.
He said: “I’m here to call out Joe Rogan for talking cr*p about me and cr*p about my mama.”
“He’s been doing it for too long — me and my mama will tell you right now the earth is flat!
“It ain’t moving around at no 600-something miles-per-hour, spinning at no thousand-miles-an-hour and floating through the universe constantly, ok,” he continued.
“This earth is flat, it’s fixed and the stars and stuff rotate around us.
“The sun rotates around us, and I can prove that, I would love to debate you Joe Rogan because I’m tired of you Joe Rogan making fun of flat earthers! If you’re so confident, come on and debate me, buddy. I’m tired of this cr*p you’re posting,” Mitchell said.
“They’re trying to feed you these lies to make you think that ‘science’ is right, and that god didn’t create this universe, the Big Bang did.
“I used to be an atheist, cause I used to believe that this universe is created by the Big Bang. I used to believe all that cr*p from Neil DeGrasse Tyson,” he finished.
We’re eagerly awaiting a response from either Joe Rogan or Neil DeGrasse Tyson!
What do you think about Mitchell’s comments?
