He’s an extremely well-spoken delusional.
He claims that he “has friends who are PhDs” who tell him that the non-Flat Earthers have “too much to lose”, and that’s why he encounters no resistance. I doubt he has any PhD friends. And no PhD would ever say what he claims they say. He has folie à plusieurs.
I like how one of his points of evidence is the absence of “blue marble” photographs of Earth (what he would he claim would be fabricated anyway). Somehow, the laziness of NASA in producing these “false” photographs from the Moon is evidence that the whole space program was a hoax.
He also claims that there are no time-lapse photographs showing a rotating Earth along with Earth’s weather patterns, because it would be too expensive to fabricate (which, nevertheless, do exist). Yet if you showed these actual videos to him, he’d just say they were fabricated.
There is literally no piece of evidence you can show him because everything you show him could have been (and, to him, was) fabricated.
I’m amazed how articulate he is. I usually associate his views with someone who has an accent other than broadcast standard US English.
[Favorite part: where his illogic leads him to pronounce that all families/friends of those involved in the Challenger and Columbia shuttle disasters are also complicit in a coverup, since he alleges that “manned” spaceshots are never manned.]
