COMMENTARY
Flat Earth Kyrie Irving
(Mike Allen)

I‘m revisiting the topic of Flat Earth this week because, lo and behold, it has popped up again in a very visible way. I think Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving is just conducting some sort of demonstration of how misinformation can spread quickly when it comes from a celebrity source, and he (sort of) said as much in an interview after his initial comments. Perhaps that’s just what I want to believe from a guy who attended Duke University. They teach “Earth Science” there, right?

Given that Irving stated his beliefs of a flat Earth on an airplane of all places, my comic from almost exactly one year ago (below) seems even more pertinent. All he had to do was look out of the window to debunk any claims he had.

Who needs Pythagoras, Plato or Eratosthenes when rapper B.o.B. has 2.3 million Twitter followers and hairbrained rationale for promoting Flat Earthism as a worldview?
