Boston Celtics star player Kyrie Irving has taken a lot of flak for his belief that the Earth is flat. But New York Giants quarterback Geno Smith thinks Irving is making some good points.
On Saturday, Smith tweeted that he’s siding with Irving on the flat vs. round Earth debate:
I been studying this whole flat earth vs globe thing... and I think I may be with Kyrie on this... b4 you judge do some HW but what do you guys think?— Geno (@GenoSmith3) February 24, 2018
He clarified that he doesn’t necessarily believe one side or the other, but he’s willing to entertain the thought that the world isn’t round:
Lol I didn’t say it’s flat, but I see how it can be debated. For all I know Earth is round but that’s just from what I’ve been taught.— Geno (@GenoSmith3) February 24, 2018
His reasoning? You can’t really trust your eyes when Photoshop exists:
In this day and age with photoshop and everything else you trusting a picture... any video footage?— Geno (@GenoSmith3) February 24, 2018
Well that’s a good point, there’s never been any video footage... [Googles “video of Earth from space”] ... ahh wait, there’s a bunch. There’s even a live stream from the International Space Station happening right now.
Geno’s not sold.
I find it funny how you all assume I believe Earth is flat lol I just think you guys should have an open mind because as we know a lot of the “truths” that we thought were true actually aren’t ♂️— Geno (@GenoSmith3) February 24, 2018
In the year or so since Irving first revealed his flat-Earth beliefs — which came from Instagram videos — he’s been committed to the thought no matter how much people point and laugh. He even had a flat-Earth prop at his Nike event in January.
Smith isn’t diving all the way in his support of the flat-Earth theories, but he’s not ready to believe conventional thought either. Stay woke, everybody.
