Shaq has been open about his theory about the Earth being flat, and it looks like he hasn’t changed his mind over the years. After a recent trip across the globe, Shaq told ‘The Kyle & Jackie O Show’ that the theory of the Earth being round can’t possibly be true.
On top of his cynicism about the Earth’s shape, he also shared his doubts about whether or not the planet spins.
I flew 20 hours today, not once did I go this way. I flew straight. I didn’t tip over or go upside down. It’s still a straight line. You don’t go under. You know they say the world is spinning? I’ve been living on a house on a lake for 30 years, not once did the lake rotate to the left or right.”
The two-time Hall of Famer and businessman previously explained his theory while speaking with John Kincade on his podcast, ‘The Big Podcast with Shaq.’
Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ‘Oh, Columbus discovered America,’ but when he got there, there were some fair-skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So, what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t discover America.”
I drive from coast to coast, and this sh*t is flat to me. I’m just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings?”
Shaq is not the only celeb on list of folks who believe the Earth of flat. NBA star Kyrie Irving, rapper B.o.B and former Jets QB Geno Smith shared the same sentiments a few years back.
