In what is considered to be a bizarre turn of events, the recurring theory that the Earth is flat and not round gets shut down on national television. And the ones who refuted the belief are none other than Flat Earthers themselves.

In a Netflix television show titled “Behind the Curve,” Flat Earth believer or “Flat Earther” Bob Knodel, reluctantly revealed what seems to be an acknowledgment that the world is indeed round. Knodel, who often makes guest appearances on various YouTube channels that discuss the theory of a flat Earth, even used a $20,000 gyroscope just to prove that the world doesn’t rotate.

After using the instrument, however, a surprising (at least for Knodel and his group) result was revealed.

"What we found is, when we turned on that gyroscope, we found that we were picking up a drift. A 15-degree per hour drift. Now, obviously we were taken aback by that,” Knodel said, saying that their findings are “kind of a problem.”

Knodel’s group did not give up easily, however.

"We obviously were not willing to accept that, and so we started looking for easy to disprove it was actually registering the motion of the Earth," he said.

According to Live Science, the members of the Flat Earth Society believe that if people are walking around on the planet's surface which looks and feels flat, it could only mean that the Earth is indeed flat. The group deems that government agencies such as NASA have fabricated evidence of a spherical Earth, which includes photos of the planet from space.

The society believes that there are now more people who believe in their theory. The top Flat Earth belief assumes that the planet is actually a disc with the Arctic Circle in the center and Antarctica is actually a massive wall of ice. They also believe that NASA acts as “guards” of the wall of ice to keep people from climbing up and falling off.

What’s more is that Flat Earthers also do not believe in the concept of gravity. According to their beliefs, objects falling do not necessarily fall down and that the disc of the Earth actually pushes them up using a mysterious force they refer to as “dark energy.”
