Flat Earth conspiracy theorists appear to be on the rise on the internet lately, with groups popping up all over the web. Last week, a video went viral, after a conspiracy theorist and YouTuber took a spirit level onto a plane to “prove” that the Earth is flat once and for all.
Nathan's video has not gone down well on YouTube, with over 4,000 people disliking it and 154 people giving it a thumbs up. The verdict seems to be that Nathan should not have approached a man just trying to have a coffee, and also the world definitely isn't flat.
"NATHAN HE WON'T TALK TO YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE ACTING LIKE A CREEPY PERSON," Haas Franz commented in all-caps. "THE EARTH IS NOT FLAT BY THE WAY. EVERYONE WHO WATCHES YOUR VIDEOS IS LEFT A LITTLE DUMBER. GOOD JOB."
Nathan has since posted an update on his confrontation in Starbucks to his Facebook group, in which he is dressed in a wig with a unicorn horn strapped to his head and claims that the NASA employee was a liar.
In the video, he says he asked the NASA employee, off-camera, "why does 'NASA' mean 'to lie' in Hebrew?". It does not mean this. NASA is simply an abbreviation of National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
