You might want to sit down for this one kids.

There’s a growing number of people who seem to think the world is, in fact, flat. But it gets better. They also insist that Australia is actually just one big hoax. According to a viral Facebook rant, the entire country (and presumably the 24 million people that live there) is completely FAKE.
The idea resurfaced at some recent gathering of the so-called Flat Earthers in Birmingham recently where over 200 people came together to confirm to each other that the Earth is nothing more than a giant pancake.
Here is one of these geniuses making their argument:
I know that right now you are assuming that this is just a put on, but now it appears to be quite legitimate.
The origin of the “fake Australia” post started on Reddit back in 2017 and was written by a Shelley Floyd. But it appears to be back in the minds of the spherically-challenged at the moment.
“Australia is not real,” the rant begins. “It’s a hoax, made for us to believe that Britain moved over their criminals to someplace. In reality, all these criminals were loaded off the ships into the waters, drowning before they could see land ever again. It’s a coverup [sic] for one of the greatest mass murders in history.”
Moreover, the post reckons that all Australians are nothing more than computer generated personas and if you’ve ever been Down Under yourself: “you’re terribly wrong”.
Hey, remember this post from yesterday?
Well, now you can add that at least don’t think that Australia is an imaginary place as well.
