If you are familiar with the flat earth, you probably heard people say: “it’s a psy-op” and “don’t fall for this deception!” In this post i would like to tell you about the real psy-op. This will be a very interesting read, but first… what is a psy-op? The word psy-op stands for psychological operation. This is an intelligence agency term for “psychological operation”. A government or corporate-sponsored operation that is carried out to influence the the masses. But really, is the flat earth controversy that has gained a lot of attention lately, a psy-op? – Or could the psy-op be something else?
”we don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society”
”we don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society” That is a quote from Obama saying that he does not want to discuss the flat earth. Other times he also referred to the flat earth saying it is nonsense. I love that painting which has the ship going off the edge of the earth. Many people were taught this popular myth that back in grade school, namely that Europeans in the 15th century widely believed that the earth was flat and that it was due to the courage and vision of explorers like Columbus and others to prove otherwise, but Columbus himself would tell you that he was not seeking to prove the earth is spherical, because everybody already knew it. Everybody already knew the earth was a sphere. In fact every educated person in Europe believed the earth was not flat, that was an almost absurd myth.
I believe there has been a flat earth psy-op, because whenever you heard someone say or use the term flat earth. if it was yesterday, or some time the last couple of years or whatever, your mind almost certainly conjured up an image that looks something like this: a flat disk with water pouring off the sides floating in space.
The reason for this connection is probably because, most likely when you were in grade school your teacher told you about how Christopher Columbus had bravely sailed from Spain across the Atlantic and discovered America. Even though everyone had warned him not to do this, because they were all afraid he would go sailing off the edge of the world into oblivion. I remember laughing. I remember the whole classroom chuckling at the idea that people would actually believed in such a silly thing. Water constantly pouring off the sides sea and creatures pulling ships under a disc floating in space. The only problem is that no one actually believed in such a thing.
So here’s where I think things really start to get interesting, but there are definitely a few twists and turns to it, also bear with me. Now modern mainstream historians will openly admit that this little presentation which the majority of us received in elementary school is not exactly an accurate historical depiction. Furthermore almost unanimously historians today will point to the same source as the reason for this confusion, namely a book called a history of the life and voyages of Christopher Columbus by Washington Irving. The same guy who authored Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I know most people will agree that Irving’s fanciful exaggerated account of Columbus’s heroic exploits and his famous journey to discover America are a somewhat shameless attempt to create more patriotic American propaganda. This is considered the logical reason as to why it’s found its way into the history books of so many American school children and has remained there for so many years. Despite its known historical inaccuracies what many teachers and historians will tell you today, is that in fact that this whole affair with Irving and Columbus created is what they call the flat earth myth and that in reality, no one of any significance or educated status actually believed in a flat earth at all. The spherical conception of the world have been known and accepted by many since the days of the Greek philosophers.
”… well that’s not really the truth either”
In reality what Columbus was in debate over was simply the size and circumference of the spherical earth not the actual shape. The only problem with this… well that’s not really true either. Many people did believe in a flat enclosed world system. Not just way back in ancient times but all the way through the past two millennia from the days of the early Christian church through the medieval period, the so-called Renaissance and beyond. All the way through the industrial revolution. But it was not something that fit into the nice and tidy over simplified story of the Catholic Church versus men of science which were all also quite familiar with. What the vast majority of protestant Christians are unaware of is that reformers such as Luther, Calvin and even Zwingli were very much in rejection of the Copernican cosmology. An intriguing quote by Luther actually says there is talk of a new astrologer who wants to prove that the earth moves and goes around instead of the sky the Sun and the moon. Just as if somebody were moving in a ship might believe that he was sitting still, while the earth and the trees walked and moved. But that is how things are nowadays. When a man wishes to be clever he must invent something special. The way he does this must need to be the best. The fool wants to try to turn whole art of astronomy upside down.
Scripture tells us in Joshua that the Sun stood still and not the earth, but yet how many Lutheran’s out there are even aware of such positions held by their so often quoted biblical interpretation. How many Protestants or evangelicals in general throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have had any concept of what both the Hebrew authors of the Old Testament or the authors of the New Testament or the many many figures throughout church in history actually did believe in terms of what the bible says about there being a literal domed firmament? And a literal edge of the earth, a truly biblical enclosed cosmological system? How many people ever learned in school or church or anywhere the people throughout history have believed in various versions of this?
The actual flat earth myth the caricature, the cartoonist joke that we were all fed is served as a replacement for the true flat earth cosmology. This conveniently allowed to remain in textbooks and classrooms year after year perpetuating the singular ridiculous icon even though everyone in academia has held this opposing view that in fact Columbus’s historic voyage had nothing to do with proving the spherical earth. This is no simple psy-op, no simplistic story. It’s a series of false impressions and reactions to those impressions, down through generations because the result of this is, of course the broader view.
The broader concept of this long-standing feud between science and religion. This itself is a distraction and application of the Hegelian dialectic. One that is eventually succeeded, because what is now come about as a result is that people who seek to hold to the Bible and its authority of scripture inspired by the Holy Spirit have effectively bent over backwards to try and prove that they do not fit the stereotype of the superstitious uneducated anti-scientific troglodyte. The propaganda has been a huge success, because few things motivate humans more than fear. In this case fear of ridicule, fear being labeled stupid or uneducated or backwards. Yet ironically, it is now many of these volumes which contributed to this agenda of ridicule for perpetuating these stereotypes and stoking the fires of the fight between science and religion which are now in this day and age some of the best resources for helping us to discover the rich history of belief in a closed cosmology.
”because few things motivate humans more than fear. In this case fear of ridicule”
I have to say that that the descriptions of the enclosed cosmology based on a literal biblical interpretation, which numerous figures in church history believed in and defended are really spot on. I find it very enlightening to overview just how prevalent the belief in the in a biblical flat earth was. And it is quite ironic to see modern flat earthers, in many cases it’s the atheists, the Bible haters and the evolutionists who we have to thank now for retaining and emphasizing the fact that the Bible is indeed a flat earth book. During so many of those years when virtually every believer in the Bible was adamantly opposed to even considering such a thing.
About the Illuminati card game, in the infamous flat earth card so many truth is out there. Who don’t want to consider flat earth, this is some kind of proof that the flat earth is merely a spy-op created by the powers that shouldn’t be. To make the truth movement look stupid and so on. This whole argument really ricochets back on anyone who tries to use it, because honestly according to that line of logic then, I guess it would apply to practically everything that falls under the category of conspiracy theory. I mean you name it. It must be must all be assigned then. It is all just an empty mean according to this argument, there really can’t be any big conspiracy at all then, because no real new world order for that matter no Illuminati. because it packets it all. There is virtually no truth out there anymore that hasn’t been called a spy-op some way or another.
Almost everything we’ve ingested on information only our entire lives has been a part of one psy-op or another. This isn’t anything new, if something like the size and shape of the earth include this too would not be very surprising. It is indeed just one more massive thing which have we’ve been lied to about for our entire lives.
Well then of course there’s going to be this information about the flat earth and many people who want to try to find out the truth about it. Why would we expect anything else? But we have to be cautious about whatever conclusions or assumptions we might jump to when we try to seek truth between all lies…
