Elon Musk Destroys The ‘Flat Earth Society’ With A Single Question, And Their Reply Is The Pinnacle Of Irony

Elon Musk is known for founding automaker Tesla and Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX), but recently he has set up the Flat Earth Society for such a burn, it could be his greatest achievement yet.

The flat earth believers are either the biggest conspiracy theory, making total fun of everyone else or they are slightly cuckoo in seriously debating the shape of the earth. The Flat-Earthers supposedly believe Earth is a flat disc and everything that suggests otherwise is a conspiracy, created by NASA and other government agencies. On Tuesday, the billionaire investor, engineer, and inventor Elon Musk asked them a somewhat philosophical question on Twitter, wondering why there isn’t a Flat Mars Society. To his and everybody else’s surprise (and amusement), the official Twitter account of the Flat Earth Society responded. Scroll down to read the hilarious exchange between Musk and the flat earth conspiracy believers!

More info: Twitter (h/t cheezburger)

The founder of Tesla and SpaceX is working hard to make a human colony on Mars a reality, so he was interested in what the Flat-Earthers think of the Red Planet

To his and everybody else’s surprise (and amusement), the official Twitter account of the Flat Earth Society responded

Their answer, however, seems to contrast with all of their beliefs and it sparked a hilarious debate

Elon was probably as confused as the Internet

They believe that the Earth is flat AND the center of the universe, with all other bodies orbiting it. The reason they seam to think they can get away with the answer they gave Musk is, we here on earth can view other celestial bodies from earth. Through telescopes, (I assume optical and radio). The suggest that their answer is valid because "no one has seen the earth from space". That is impossible, of course LMAO. Everything to do with EVERY space program, world wide, is a hoax. All the "photographs" of the earth from space are just elaborate fake pictures. One of the funniest things about them, unless they've changed it, is they describe their Social media pages as something to the effect as, "a gathering place for flat earthers from around.... THE GLOBE!"

Guys! I can prove story about flat earth. This is all going from past times, from our ancestors, who believe that earth was flat (in the start of earth creating). We can point this time number - 1 one. Look at this number. The number is flat, thin. Because 1 is abstract, this abstraction tell for us, that we talking about our inner core inside our earth, which consisting of tigh mettals. Probably this inner core is thin, looks like a needle, or may be something like almond. There are very cold temperature, may be -273.15. Numbers telling to us that is Thin, cold, primary world. So, the idea of a thin earth, going from that period of time (4 milliards years before), to the Haden period.

If the Earth is flat, how do people travel around it without seeing the "underside"?

The FES professes that there is a giant wall of ice surrounding the whole Earth Disk. They profess that Earth looks like the UN flag, with the North Pole at the center of it all.

You know why they don't talk about the incident? They funded a hollow earthier to drill through the earth. He drilled and fell through. It was a terrible incident.
