Rapper B.o.B. has Started a GoFundMe Campaign to Prove That the World is Flat

Creationists. Anti-vaxxers. Donald Trump. How have we come to live in such a world of unreason? When did it become trendy to debate the facts presented to us by science and empirical research? And do we really have to debate the fact that the Earth is round and sits in an orbit around a class M star?

Apparently so. Rapper B.o.B. is a hardcore Flat Earther, convinced that all those globes and maps are nothing but a giant conspiracy designed to…well, I’m not sure.

Now B.o.B. wants to advance his research by starting a GoFundMe campaign which, he says, has the objective of launching a satellite into space that will prove once and for all that the Earth is flat (and presumably that below us are turtles all the way down.)

Fortunately, we have Neil DeGrasse Tyson to offer some sanity to the situation.
