Shaq has been open about his theory about the Earth being flat, and it seems he hasn’t changed his mind in years. After a recent round-the-world trip, Shaq told ‘The Kyle & Jackie O Show’ that the round Earth hypothesis cannot be true.
In addition to his skepticism about the shape of the Earth, he also shared his doubts about whether the planet rotates.
I flew 20 hours today, not once have I taken this route. I fly straight. I’m not flipped or upside down. It is still a straight line. You do not go under. You know they say the world is spinning? I have lived on a lake house for 30 years, not once has the lake turned left or right”.
The Hall of Famer twice and entrepreneur previously explained his theory while speaking to John Kincade on his podcast, ‘The Big Podcast with Shaq.’
Listen, there are three ways to control the mind – what you read, what you see and what you hear.

I drive from coast to coast, and the road is flat for me. I just said. I drive from Florida to California all the time, it’s flat for me. I don’t go up and down at 360 degrees, and all that gravity stuff, have you looked out of Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? “
Shaq isn’t the only celebrity on the list of people who believe the Earth is flat. NBA star Kyrie Irving, rapper BoB and former Jets QB Geno Smith shared similar feelings a few years ago.
