Carl Froch Believes The World Is Flat And NASA Is A Hoax

Carl Froch Believes The World Is Flat And NASA Is A Hoax

Wake up, sheeple!

Hey, guess who is a flat Earther? It's former boxing champion Carl Froch!

Yes, the British super middleweight champion of the world believes that not only is the world a flat plane, but also that US space agency NASA is 'fake'.

Well, he would know, wouldn't he?

The 42-year-old sportsman thinks that we've all been sold a lie by a shadowy global elite, and he's not alone in that opinion.

In fact, it's been reported that Ashes hero Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff is also of the same view.

Froch was a great boxer, but is he decent scientist? Probably not.

Speaking with a podcast called Pound for Pound with Jake Wood and Spencer Oliver, Froch said: "The Earth is flat, 100 percent.

"There's no proof of the Earth's curvature and this fake space agency NASA use CGI images and every one is different.

"I'm looking at them thinking, 'Hang on a minute, they're like cartoons.'

"When someone like Richard Branson goes up there and starts doing chartered flights... and you can look back on Earth and see the Earth's curvature, I'll believe the Earth is a globe."

Well, he did win 33 of his 35 fights as a professional boxer, that basically qualifies him to hold forth about the nature of the cosmos, right?

Oh wait, he's probably got no idea whatsoever, hasn't he?

Dunno, Carl. If it's a hoax, it's a good one.

Anyway, as we've spoken about, he's not alone in this thinking. As it happens, an alarming amount of people believe that the world is flat and that we're all being sold a hoax.

A while back, Freddie Flintoff said that there is 'evidence to suggest the world isn't round'.

He told The Sun: "If you're in a helicopter and you hover, why does the Earth not come to you if it's round?

"Why, if we're hurtling through space, why would water stay still? Why is it not wobbling?

"Also if you fire a laser about 16 miles, if the world was curved, you shouldn't be able to see it but you can.

"The middle is the North Pole, around the outside is the South Pole which is like a big wall of ice.

"This is why all governments now have bases on the South Pole."

That's a spicy hot take, right there.

Composite images? Fish-eye lenses? You be the judge.

Former LA Lakers basketball player Shaquille O'Neal also thinks the world isn't round. After having a road to Damascus moment on the road between Florida and California, he said: "It's true. The Earth is flat."

Well, if such luminary geniuses as Carl Froch, Freddie Flintoff and Shaq believe it, it's gotta be true.
