Flat Earther claims images from space are fake

Prolific flat Earth enthusiast Mark Sargent spoke out during a recent segment on the UK's 'This Morning'.
Speaking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, Sargent, who gained popularity after being prominently featured in the Netflix documentary 'Behind the Curve', remained adamant throughout the interview that the Earth is little more than a flat disc surrounded by a huge wall of ice.

"We can't prove that it's a globe," he said. "Everybody that's in the flat Earth community starts out looking at the globe saying 'can you prove it, can you prove the globe ?"

When Schofield pointed out that he had seen the curvature of the Earth during a flight on Concorde, Sargent replied by claiming that he'd seen high-altitude balloon footage showing the total opposite.

Keen to provide further evidence, the hosts then switched to a live feed from the International Space Station which clearly showed the curvature of the Earth far below.
Sargent hit back by suggesting that not only was the footage fake, but that the US military had been producing computer-generated imagery of the planet from space as far back as the 1950s.

He also claimed that most people working in the aviation and space industries know nothing about it.

"Pilots, scientists, astrophysicists like Brian Cox, none of them have anything to do with it," he said. "Generals know the battle plans but most of the officers don't."

Mark Sargent is a fake. Noone can possibly be that stupid. He is seeking publicity and by looks of it, he is getting it!

Without question, we can feel free to call him an idiot.   Even though he is faking this, if you want to portray an idiot, you can be called an idiot.

If the earth is flat, then you should be able to climb a mountain, and use a telescope to see other mountains on the other side of the "disc," or use a laser in the same manner, or stretch damn strings between them. But they always have an idiotic answer to everything proposed, yet not one damn piece of evidence (like the ice walls surrounding the edges) to back them up. Just deny science and use fallacies to support their lunacy.

I don't get why they are so passionate and defensive about it, when it doesn't matter one way or another. What does it matter if the Earth is flat or spherical? How does it impact our day to day lives? If the government is hiding facts and lying to me...what do they gain? Who cares? Again, how does it really affect me? It doesn't matter if the earth is a sphere, a flat plane, a pyramid, or a fluid amoeba constantly changing. I will still go to work, I will still spend time with my family, and I will continue to do all of the other things that make me happy. Who really cares?
