B.o.B is channeling his inner ancient philosopher by refuting the commonly followed belief that the world is shaped like a sphere.
Taking to Twitter last night (January 25) the Atlanta native questioned how the Earth couldn’t be flat and cited fallible logic to which his social media following dragged him for.
“The cities in the background are approx. 16miles apart…” he tweeted in coordination with a picture of him standing in front of two distant city skylines. “Where is the curve ? please explain this.”
“16 miles is 0.06% of the earth's circumference,” a Twitter user responded. “You can't expect to see the curvature of earth in that distance.”
Following that up, Bobby Ray then tweeted numerous philosophical inquiries which he believed supported his argument. These included questions about why our face and hair aren’t messed up from the Earth’s constant rotation and why the U.N. supposedly limits our access to the North and South Poles.
This isn’t the first time B.o.B let the world hear his conspiracy theories. Just last month he equated numerous random occurrences (like kids going missing and celebrities “losing their minds”) to the formation of what he called a “cloning center.” There was no context or further explanation as to where those series of tweets came from.
