Remember that condescending “It’s a mirage!
In 2016, The Atlantic published an article on the theory that summed it up as follows: “Thousands of years ago, a cataclysmic event destroyed 99% of the Earth’s biosphere, and when it happened, it took away the real forests. Real trees are nothing like their stunted cousins, the miserable perishing scraps of wood that we see today; they were truly vast, hundreds of kilometers tall, magical organisms that sustained a total living ecology of the flat earth” (here).
Those who believe in this theory claim that geological formations like Devils Tower in Wyoming, Giant’s Causeway in Ireland and Uluru in Australia are actually giant tree trumps ( here , here ). Reuters fact-checked claims on social media arguing Devil’s Tower was a tree stump, here .
Missing context. An image being used to suggest that that the earth is flat and trees are not real is actually of a collage made by Spanish artist Fernando Martin Godoy in 2015.
