Some Flat Earthers now think Earth is actually a big doughnut
This still may be a bit hard to swallow.
DOUGHNUT EARTH — If you've always been one of those Flat Earthers who didn't quite buy into the pizza-shaped theory of the planet, here's an idea you can sink your sweet tooth into — the earth is actually one big old Dunkin Donut.
According to Lad Bible, a Flat Earther with the username Varuag back in 2012 posed this gem to the Flat Earth Society, "I have a theory that the Earth is in fact shaped like a torus (a donut-shape). However, light is curved so we cannot tell."
He then compiled a list of answers for 11 frequently asked questions his Krispy Kreme theory was likely to encounter.
Here are some of the best ones. Why hasn't the donut hole been been discovered? Light bends and follows the curvature of the torus, making the hole "unseeable."
How does light curve? Radio waves are reflected by the atmosphere and apparently on torus-earth, so is light. The farther light travels, the more it curves, by the time it reaches the atmosphere, it can be reflected. As light travels around the corners of the atmosphere, it curves every time so that's why the Earth looks flat.
When you're standing in the middle of the donut and look up, why don't you see the other side of the donut? Well dummy — as light passes through the first atmosphere, but by the time it reaches the second atmosphere it has diminished enough to be reflected into space, so you see space.
He also goes on to explain how night and day occur, why we have seasons, and a HOLE lot more.
