Add Shaq to list of those who believe that the earth is not round, but flat. Kyrie Irving ‘s belief that the earth is flat was the talk of All-Star weekend, and now Shaq has joined the conversation. Shaq shared his ideas about the earth on “The Big Podcast with Shaq.”
“It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yeah, it is. Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ‘Oh, Columbus discovered America,’ but when he got there, there were some fair skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t discover America. So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this sh_t is flat to me. I’m just saying, I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity. Have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.”
Is the earth round or flat? I don’t know, but nothing would surprise me.
