Climate Denial Perfected – Georgia GOP Chair Goes Full Flat Earth

May 25, 2023

Climate Denial’s perfect singularity.

Why are there so many Globes? Obviously – it’s the Globalists!

Yahoo:

Kandiss Taylor, a recently elected GOP District Chair in Georgia, would like to know why Big Globe won’t stop shoving round-Earth propaganda down our throats.

In an interview with David Weiss (AKA “Flat Earth Dave”) and Matt Long on her “Jesus, Guns, and Babies” podcast, Taylor and her guests discussed biblical “evidence” that the Earth is actually flat as a pancake. “The people that defend the globe don’t know anything about the globe,” said Weiss. “If they knew a tenth of what Matt and I know about the globe they would be Flat Earthers.”

All the globes, everywhere” Taylor said later in the discussion. “I turn on the TV, there’s globes in the background … Everywhere there’s globes. You see them all the time, it’s constant. My children will be like ‘Mama, globe, globe, globe, globe’ — they’re everywhere.”

“That’s what they do, to brainwash,” she added. “For me if it’s not a conspiracy. If it is real, why are you pushing so hard everywhere I go? Every store, you buy a globe, there’s globes everywhere. Every movie, every TV show, news media — why? More and more I’m like, it doesn’t make sense.”

Outside of promoting crackpot conspiracies about the Earth’s shape, Taylor is a firm believer that the 2020 election was fraudulently stolen from Donald Trump
Taylor implemented the Trumpian playbook after her own failed 2022 bid for Georgia’s governorship. Despite only winning 3.7 percent of the vote in the Republican primary compared to Gov. Brian Kemp’s 73.7 percent, Taylor refused to concede her election loss, claiming the race had been “rigged.” No such claims were made after her successful run for GOP Chair of Georgia’s 1st District in April.

    … Oh, and by the way: “The only reason the dinosaurs aren’t around today is because they were too big to fit on Noah’s ark.”

    She flips her husband over when it’s time to sleep?
    Why doesn’t he fall off the bed when god flips the Earth over?
    She worships at Hobby Lobby? I’ve heard of the market religion but isn’t that taking things a bit far?

    10 lies per minute. (It’s a little hard to separate them, so really 8-12 depending on whether you’re a lumper or a splitter.) No record but a good effort anyway.

    I’ll bet she has little voices in her head …

    It would be very funny if it weren’t so dangerous. Delusions and fantasies are a standard issue part of how humans think. But when you decide that something known for millennia, by people with much less data and observational equipment… well, that’s just crazy. One example: in ancient Greece observers noticed the same curve of the shadow cast by the earth on the moon during a lunar eclipse– no matter where in the sky the eclipse occurred. They knew that only a sphere produces a shadow with the same, uniform curve no matter what part of it is casting the shadow– QED. They also noticed that the last visible part of a ship sailing away from shore is the top of the mast– which puts paid to the flat earth.

    Of course you can dodge these arguments by adopting tangled, speculative hypotheses that ‘explain’ why all the evidence is against the account you prefer But add in Magellan’s voyage (arriving home with a calendar one day behind) and the dodging gets very awkward.

    Of course this is all about motivated cognition (which mixes well with motivated lies)…

    I’ve never liked that “proof” of a global earth, since the further away you are across and ocean, the more likely there are waves that are higher than the ship.

    She’s raising her children to think that way, of course.

    I suppose if we had her look through a simple telescope at the other planets, her explanation would be:
