"All these things that they keep giving to us, all this information, I'm just saying that these things that used to put me in fear, it makes you not want to question it naturally, because of how much information you actually can figure out and how much information there actually is out there", Irving said. You mean to tell me that China is under us? The only other explanation is that they believe it, and just.no. No.

He explained that he drives from coast to coast, and it certainly seems flat to him: "I'm just saying". China is under us?

Shaquille O'Neal thinks the Earth is flat.

National Basketball Association legend Shaquille O'Neal believes the Earth is flat. "It's not. The world is flat", said O'Neal on the Big Podcast, via Ben Rohrbach.

Well, the man known as Shaq has joined the chorus coming from some players on The Big Podcast with Shaq.

When it comes to physics and, well, reality, the Shaq Attack is helpless.

"I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it's flat to me", O'Neal continued. As every fourth-grade student knows, one of the things Columbus did was disprove the idea of a flat earth by sailing to America without falling off the end of the world.

Irving made his claim during an interview prior to the NBA's All-Star Weekend.

"It's right in front of our faces", he said. Silver also noted - with a faint grin on his face - that he believes the world is round.

But, all he needed was to perceive that the Earth is flat during a cross-country drive. It's the same podcast where he first let loose with his controversial take on established science.

"This is not even a conspiracy theory".

Last month, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving made waves on social media when he stated on teammates Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson podcast (Road Tripping with R.J. and Channing) that he was convinced that the Earth is flat. Whether he realizes it or not, Irving is implying that equal credence should be given to all perspectives, even those that are objectively, provably wrong. Facepalm. This kind of thinking is infecting so many people, lately.
