My friend believes conspiricy theories like the flat earth?
I’ve known her for 2 years and today she said the thinks the earth is flat and that the moon landing was fake and stuff like that. Everyone turned against her on this but it’s really bothering me because nonentity of this is true
How can I change her mind
she is probably 13 and watches a lot of YouTube and she probably thinks whatever her science teacher says is true science teachers are wrong all the time (big bang, evolution, flat earth, global warming) all of those are proven to be false so your friend is a idiot and zoom in on Neil’s helmet and see the moon reflection show her that there would be no reason at all to fake the moon landing
Conspiracy theories are somewhat addictive and very few people recover from them once they have fallen in. 99% of all flat Earth proofs consist of a question they can’t answer and so they ASSUME that means that thing is impossible. So they accuse the rest of us of lying to cover up “the truth”. Most of the time you can’t prove a flat earther wrong because they don’t understand the explanation. They resort to pat answers like Gravity is wrong or worse yet, “gravity was invented by jews”. To a flat Earther, that is a valid reason to disbelieve in gravity. No, the fact is there has not yet ever been presented even one “fact” that disagrees with the NASA record of the moon landings.
And by the way, flags can wave on the moon if they are built to do so. They designed that flag especially with a wire frame and weights so it could swing like a pendulum. And there is gravity on the moon, its just less than that of the earth. So you see my point. This has been trotted out for years as a supposed proof we never went to the moon but in reality its that conspiracy thinkers prefer to believe in their fantasy than accept reality.
