YouTube Star Logan Paul Says He'll Prove The Earth Is Flat By Visiting Antarctica

Despite countless scientific facts to the contrary, YouTuber Logan Paul says that he'll be proving that the Earth is flat.

You Know Logan Paul

Even if you avoid YouTube drama, you've probably heard the name Logan Paul in the past year. With 18.8 million subscribers on YouTube and 15.9 million followers on Instagram, Paul wields an alarming amount of influence online.

Plenty Of Scandal

He moved into the mainstream news cycle in at the beginning of 2018 when Paul sparked outrage with an offensive video shot in Japan. In the video, Paul visits Aokigahara, the "suicide forest" near Mt. Fuji, and is shown on camera disrespecting a dead body.

Instead of turning off the camera and acting like a normal, compassionate human being, Paul zooms in on the dead body and even cracks a few jokes.

People were understandably upset.

A New Documentary Series

Still, Paul has somehow maintained his relevance on YouTube, publishing regular vlog posts and having the support of literally millions of fans.

Paul has decided to turn his focus to conspiracy theories​ and is releasing a documentary, The Flat Earth: To The Edge And Back, where he becomes a flat earther and digs into the anti-scientific movement that has gained a surprising​ amount of traction online in recent years.

Looking For Proof

Not only that, but Paul is going to document his journey across Antarctica in an attempt to prove that the Earth is flat. Sure.

The Flat Earth Movement

Paul told Robbie Davidson, founder of the Flat Earth International Conference:

I am that guy that will make it to the edge.

If I’m going to put my name out there (as a Flat Earth supporter), I want to know the facts.

Some of the best scientists can’t explain gravity; Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, in the end, do they even know?

I want to explore for myself and keep an open mind. There is a stigma of being a flat-Earther and if I’m going to do it I want to know the facts.

The Internet Was A Mistake

So, Paul is going to use his money and influence to push a lie to his millions of followers, who are mostly young and impressionable kids and teenagers?

Cool. Cool, cool, cool.
