There is a war raging. It reminds me of the Bible story of the “Tower of Babel”, only this time it is Satan doing the dividing.
ALSO VERY TELLING is that out of over 100 posts of my articles on my Facebook Public Figure page, that the four articles I posted on this topic (including this article) were completely removed off of my Public Figure page...just gone. I discovered this today. (1/24/2016).
My hypothesis would also help make sense as to why so many people have personally grafted themselves as one to this vine to the extent that they are so easily offended and feel so personally insulted by any mention of a conflicting theory in regards to the shape of the earth.
The last article I wrote titled "The Flat Earth topic. It's REAL purpose SHOULD BE OBVIOUS!!!!" brought the wrath upon me from both camps, the "Flat Earth" supporters and the Spherical Earth supporters. Even personal friends of mine from both sides who have never been angry with me before, became incensed because they ASSUMED I was slamming them. I am sorry, I thought it was clear that my entire article was about the attitudes and behaviors of both sides and of how insanely emotional people were over this "what shape is the earth" thing. The fact that my article triggered such negative emotional outrage from both sides was even more of a wake up call to me as to just how insanely volatile this whole..."what shape is the earth" thing is. It appears to me that for some reason people take greater offense to a disagreement over what they believe the earth is shaped like more than they would if someone viciously slandered their innocent child.
The emotional response over my last article only reinforced my belief that there is something fishy going on with this "what shape is the world" topic. Murderous rage should not be the common fruit being produced by such a supposedly benign topic.
And...BTW, contrary to what many may assume, that last article I wrote was inspired by the insane treatment Rob Skiba was getting by doing what people asked him to do...research and express his own thoughts on the "Flat Earth" vs Spherical Earth" theories. I have only known Rob Skiba to be a good Christian man with a very good heart and sound mind...which is a world of difference from those thoughtless emotional people who have been so quick to throw the stones.
Further more, once again, I am being accused of saying that people should not research this topic. This is just not true. I, with an open mind, have researched this topic myself. In spite of my own personal experience that involves this topic, I willingly set that aside to look for myself as to what is being said about this topic. I still love truth more than my own life. Nearly 30 years ago I gave up everything that I had believed was the truth when I found out that what I had was The Lie. My love for truth remains.
