Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving just got more interesting.
Irving, Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson were having a good time doing a lighthearted podcast talking about whether aliens exist. Irving took it a step further asking his teammates whether they thought the earth was round.
“This is not even a conspiracy theory,” Irving said. “The Earth is flat.”
The podcast got even more wild when Irving blamed “particular groups” that convince people the Earth is round.
“It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us,” Irving said.
“What I’ve been taught is that the earth is round. But if you really think about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we move and the fact that, can you really think of us rotating around the sun and all planets aligned, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these planets?”
Jefferson asked how Irving was going to put the word “planets” in quotations.
“Because, everything that they send — or that they want to say they’re sending — doesn’t come back,” Irving replied. “There is no concrete information except for the information that they’re giving us. They’re particularly putting you in the direction of what to believe and what not to believe. The truth is right there, you just got to go searching for it.”
The Flat Earth Theory conspiracy is an interest one if you want to research it. But it has in fact been disproved.
