The Plane Truth by Bob Schadewald

Posted by on Aug 25, 2017 in Blog Posts


I just finished this book by Bob Schadewald. Bob was not a flat earther but I see signs that he may have believed it more than he lead on. He was was an author, researcher, and former president of the National Center for Science Education. An internationally recognized expert on pseudoscience, Schadewald penned numerous articles on creationism, perpetual motion, flat earthism, and other pseudoscience. He certainly is biased in his writing but I also see that he was very true to reporting facts. So, if you are interested in the history of flat earth and where it came from and who were the ones talking about it most in the nineteenth and twentieth century, I say you must read this book. I thought it was very good and I learned a lot. Of course, if you are sure like me of the global deception, you will gain a lot from this book. The links to the various pages and chapters are below. If you don't have time for the entire book, I suggest Chapters 2, 3 and 4 as they are excellently written and contain the true events of that infamous experiment.
