“Marc Gauld is organizing this fundraiser.
This campaign is to prove to flat earthers once and for all that the earth is round! It currently takes $250000 to secure a seat on a Virgin Galactic flight to enter the earths orbit.
If flat earthers truly want to prove flat earth then I would expect most donations to come from the flat earther community.
The first flights are planned for this year but may be held back due to the COVID pandemic but I hope to have a flat earther in space within the next couple years.
Once the funds are raised I will hold an application process for high ranking flat earthers to enter if they wish to be the first flat earther in space!
One lucky flat earther will be chosen for disappointing the rest of the flat earthers.
Please get onboard with this as it is in the name of science and it will finally disprove or prove the flat earth theory and we can finally put this to rest!
I am 100% serious about this and your donations will be highly appreciated and will be helping to stop a completely unsupported scientific view getting in the way of real progress!
Thanks to all who donate I will make this happen.”
