Ph.D. Student’s Thesis Presents “Scientific Evidence” The Earth Is Flat

The idea that the Earth is ‘Flat’ is, in fact, a relatively new theory. In fact, before anyone came up with the idea we live on a flat plane, people knew very well the Earth was round.

Even though there are countless images of our planet, and numerous videos which have been recorded from space, there are still some who argue the Earth is in fact flat.  One of them is a Ph.D. student who rocked the Arab scientific community when she presented her thesis claiming the Earth is FLAT, stationary, the center of the universe and only around 13,500 years old. Yup, you read right.

Not only did she suggest we live on a flat Earth, she also rejected scientific theories presented by Newton and Einstein, astronomical discoveries made by Copernicus and Kepler, the Big Bang theory, atmospheric and geological activity, most of modern climatology, and basically all other scientific teachings made in the past.

According to an article written by the Gulf News, the student presented her thesis after a staggering five years of work. Eventually, it was submitted to two assessors, thus passing the first stage of approvals. The reports were expected soon, for the thesis defense to be scheduled.

This ‘shocking’ doctoral thesis suggests that the planet we live on is flat, very young and that it remains stationary in the MIDDLE of the universe. Furthermore—if that wasn’t enough—the thesis claims that the Sun has an average diameter of 1,135 kilometers and NOT 1.4 million km. The moon has a width of 908km, and are located 687 and 23 times closer to Earth respectively. In addition, the thesis claims there are 11 planets and STARS in the sky are LIMITED in number and have a diameter of 292 kilometers and not millions of kilometers.

In the meantime, the President of the Tunisian Astronomical Association somehow managed to get his hands on a leaked copy of the thesis, proving it was not a hoax and posted in on Facebook. As noted by Gulf News, many people consider these claims ridiculous, and scandalous since the thesis firmly rejects ALL modern science. Others, however, have found it extremely disturbing since the thesis was written by a Ph.D. science student, and the professor is the ‘highest’ in academia.

Furthermore, Gulf News adds:
“Indeed, we find in the conclusions of the thesis clear indications of this stand and approach, expressions such as: “using physical and religious arguments”, “also proving the world scale of [Noah’s] flood”, “proposed a new kinematic approach that conforms to the verses of the Quran”, “the roles of the stars are: (1) to be ornaments of the sky; (2) to stone the devils; and (3) as signs to guide creatures in the darkness of earth”; and finally “the geo-centric model… accords with the verses of the Quran and the pronouncements of our Prophet.”


  1. Okay, if the Earth is flat, where is the center of the Earth? If you are flying West from California, what happens when you run out of land beneath your wings? At some point you have to explain why you can fly in any direction to get to any other place in the world and not run out of Earth and Sea to cross.

    1. The CT reply is "You're not flying in a straight line, you're flying in a circle when you circumnavigate". It's impossible to logically work through a problem like this when one side literally makes it's evidence up on the spot in an ad-hoc basis, as needed to "prove" their claim. :/

  2. well I am so mad you have dared to use political support to fraudulently concatenate religious and scientific principales, something Isaac Newton fairly tryed unsuccessfully for years, only oppressive politicians science-religion fakes can agree and support your avoiding so many obstacles of logics, this is so sad, if only one could find a hilarious angle in it to shade some of the shame the scientific community feels as this goes public

  3. I really like your article. It’s evident that you have a lot knowledge on this topic. Your points are well made and relatable. Thanks for writing engaging and interesting material. Online Assignment Help

  4. It's very good and great article thank for sharing with us. Your points is very valid. Most of the students also facing problem in dissertation topic selection. so please check this out

  5. Any university that'd give this bozo an advanced degree will become the laughing stock of the planet.

  6. When she said Earth is flat, just curious of the shape of it. Is it round shape like pizza or square like the box of a pizza. Or what. Lol...

  7. If the earth is flat.. why is it possible to fly "A ROUND" it? - 360 Logic

  8. Its amazing how people can say " what if we live in a computer generated world" and people will discuss it without being angry, sarcastic or down right mean. But if you claim the world is flat all hell break loose. Have we been programmed that bad that we can't even look at the possibility? Here in Texas the talk is all about NASA about to pass the lower orbit. No one questions this since supposedly we crossed it to go to the Moon. In 1984 military exercise we had to be in the Phillipines asap, from California, up to this day i have no idea why we flew over Alaska. Too many gaps and misinformation but the formula for curvature doesn't work. Since we can clearly see with infra red in the military over 100 miles straight. I can go on with example, but my main question is why attack people so blindly without doing any experimentation first?

  9. Interesting how you say this is an Islamic finding when in reality most Muslims believe that the earth is round. Here is an example:

    The Quran says that when the night and the day overlap, they make a ball (sphere):

    [Quran 39.5] [Allah] Created the heavens and the Earth in truth. He overlaps [Yukawer in Arabic يُكَوِّرُ] the night over the day and overlaps [Yukawer يُكَوِّرُ] the day over the night, and enslaved the sun and the moon. ALL MOVE (Kullon Yajree كل يجري) to a prerecorded destiny. Is He not the Exalted, the Forgiver?

    The Arabic word "Kura" means ball; its verb "Yukawer يُكَوِّرُ" means to make into a ball. The Quran says that the overlapping of the night and the day makes a ball (sphere). Here also the Quran is referring to ALL MOVING, not only the sun and moon but also Earth. In Arabic grammar there is difference between the singular (one), binary (two) and plural (three or more). The reference to binary is "Kulahuma Yajreean كلاهما يجريان" however the Quran said "Kullon yajree كل يجري" referring to the plural (three or more). Since the sun and moon are just two but the Quran refers to three or more then according to the Quran all the three move: sun, moon and Earth.

    The Quran says that Earth has a diameter (diameter is simply twice the radius).

    [Quran 55,33] O company of Jinn and man, escape the diameters (Aktar in Arabic اقطار) of the Heavens and the Earth if you can, You won't escape without authority.

    Diameter in Arabic is Kutr قطر. Its plural is Aktar اقطار. Radii and diameters are properties of circles or spheres only. This conforms with the previus verse, to make into a ball [Yukawer يُكَوِّرُ].

    The rotation of Earth is slowing down, that is, days are getting longer. The Quran says that Allah persistently asks more of the day and more of the night, that is, for the day to get longer:

    [Quran 7.54] And your Lord, Allah, who created the Heavens and the Earth in six days and then settled on the Throne. [Allah] Covers the night with the day, asks for it persistently; and the sun and the moon and the stars enslaved by His orders. Is this not His creation and His command? Blessed be Allah the Lord of all the worlds.

    If God asks more of the day and more of the night then this means the days are getting longer. Physics wise this means that the rotation of Earth should be slowing down. However this is what it really turned out to be: The rotation of Earth is indeed slowing down.

    [Quran 50.7] And the earth We have spread it out (والارض مددناها), and set thereon mountains standing firm, and have produced therein every kind of lovely pairs (of plants).

    The Quran says that God spread out the Earth 'والارض مددناها' meaning increase in surface area during formation. 'Madda' in Arabic means 'spread out', however it was mistranslated to 'flat'. Flat in Arabic is "musattah مسطح" and its verb (to make flat) is "sataha سطح" however neither were used in the entire Quran. The Quran says that God spread out Earth, that is, increased the surface area. Our solar system is 4.57 billion years old. Earth started accreting concurrently with the sun and our neighbouring planets 4.57 bln years ago. However during the accretion process the radius of Earth was not spontaneously 6400 km; but rather started a few kilometers long and progressively increased. But the surface area is a function of the radius, that is, as the radius increases the surface area increases (surface area = 4πR2). So the Quran correctly described the surface area as increasing.
