This week I’ve been busily typing away, trying to actually sit down and really focus on writing the outline for the documentary. I actually started over from what I put together before. Had gotten about three “chapters” in, then decided on a whole new approach. C’est la vie. It’s a totally different exercise overall though. I had become quite accustomed to getting some kind of idea fixed in my head, some topic to explore or thing to ramble about, then sitting down and writing it, recording it, turning it into a video usually between 10-15 minutes long. It had finally gotten to the point of being almost instinctual. I had a process more or less down. But this? This is just quite different. I think I thought it would be slightly easier. Simply what I’ve already been doing, only putting many of those 10-15 sections together into one piece. Right?
Well, not really. Not if I want to really make sense. Make sense in the way that it all seems to make sense in my head. (which, who knows, maybe isn’t all that sensible after all…) But overall I do feel a growing sense of “urgency” to get it put together. I do believe the information and the project is worthwhile, and needed, and will perhaps only continue to become so even more, as this topic continues to expand in the public consciousness.
Perhaps I just needed a little “cathartic release typing”, as opposed to the much more intentional and scrutinized writing I’ve been doing this week. That’s what this blog used to be about for me anyhow, but, it’s definitely taken a back seat.
But then, that’s what’s also kinda interesting. Because, when I was “blogging regularly”, mainly focusing on the more “mundane” topics of things like the New World Order, Bible Prophecy, Transhumanism, the Occult, etc., and honestly, I wasn’t getting a ton of readers. Not that my material was so fascinating in the first place, but, in the past year or so, since getting into Flat Earth, and barely touching the blog, people continue to trickle in. Not because of any of the things I used to write about. But because of this topic. It continues to grow, continues to spread, and this amazed me almost more than anything (even though I suppose it shouldn’t, considering how I believe it to be the Truth, but…)
A few days ago, Shaquille Oneill came out publicly and said the Earth is Flat.
I honestly still don’t even know quite know how I feel about that, since on the one hand I realize that things like that will inevitably cause more people to look into it, research it online, get blown away by what they actually find, etc., but…. at the same time, his “Flat Earth profession” was just, weak. Very much sounded like he didn’t really investigate it himself (unlike NBA star Kyrie Irving, who does sound very knowledgeable as to why he believes the Earth is Flat.)
Edddie Bravo goes on Infowars talking about FE. People are planning a “Flat Earth Conference” in November. It’s being ridiculed on tv shows like “Tosh.0” and “The Jimmy Kimmel Show”.
It’s actually starting to “penetrate the mainstream”, in a way that 9/11 Truth or so many other conspiracy topics never have. And in one sense you know that this will only make the anti-FE Truthers more skeptical that it’s a “psyop”, intended to make the Truth Community “look stupid”. Christians are convinced it’s designed to make the Bible and Creationism “look stupid. Many Flat Earthers believe that other Flat Earthers are “shills” designed to make Flat Earth look stupid. So, (*sigh*), yes, the circus continues….
And I do tire of it. I tire of the “buzz”, the increasing fixation so many FE people have with every time a celebrity or the mainstream media mentions FE, in any capacity. I just don’t really care. I don’t believe that celebrity hype or trying to get a topic to be “trending” on FB, or whatever else, are ultimately anything to give a rip about. If the Earth really, truly, has no curve? Is not a ball? Is not floating in space…? Well then, hey, it’s coming out, sooner or later. And if the Bible really does describe such a thing as well? Then the Spirit will guide us, those of us willing to search the Scriptures with an open heart, completely unrattled by how foolish the Evolution-preaching world thinks we are…
In the meantime, I am going to go bang on some more keys. Make some more words. Hopefully a few that even go together. Thanks for letting me vent a little today.
