Flat-Earthers Have An Insane New Theory: The Earth Is Shaped Like A Donut

We’ve known for thousands of years that the Earth is spherical, but not everyone accepts that fact. Indeed, even today, people believe that the Earth is a level disk, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Now, though, a handful of those same people have an insane new theory: the Earth is shaped like a donut, complete with a hole in the middle.

The idea of a flat Earth can be traced back to several ancient civilizations, including Egypt. In these schools of thought, the planet was thought to be a circular body floating on the open sea. Even in Europe, a similar theory was held by the Germanic and Norse populaces – although in their version, the surrounding ocean contained an enormous sea serpent.
