Daily Beast - Flat Earthers Call Trump’s Space Force Idea ‘Impossible’
Not surprisingly, just about the only people who shouldn’t be criticizing Trump’s “Space Force” idea are doing so. “Of course” we all “know” full well every single government on Earth is involved in a massive cover up to hide the “true shape of the Earth” for um reasons… Kelly Weill at the Daily Beast has more,
President Donald Trump wants a Space Force to expand U.S. military power beyond the globe. That’s a problem for flat earthers who incorrectly believe the world is a flat disc floating through space.
On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence announced plans to launch “Space Force,” a sixth branch of the U.S. military by 2020. The proposed branch would be reserved specifically for outer space operations. Military experts say the Air Force currently carries out space missions just fine. And flat earthers say going to space is basically impossible, so why bother trying.
“While there is some difference of opinion between different Flat Earth groups, I think it’s fair to say that the overall belief is that sustained spaceflight is impossible, or at the very least cost-prohibitive,” Pete Svarrior, a spokesperson for the Flat Earth Society told The Daily Beast.
I may not like Trump’s ludicrous “Space Force” idea, but its not anywhere near as absurd as the so called “science” behind the idea that the Earth is flat.
