Amidst all the black gloom as we watch our economy needlessly destroyed, here’s a ray of sunshine.
Our leading flat earth scholar, Wellington QC Hugh Rennie, tells me that due to the lock-down, he’s suspended publication of his book out-lining the flat earth case. But he’s absolutely delighted as with thinking time on his hands he’s come up with a new chapter. His research reveals an estimated 29,000 ships have disappeared at sea over the last 300 years.
“Where do you think they’ve gone?”, he asked me.
“Sunk”, I tentatively ventured.
“No, no, no,” he snapped. “Seabed research shows only about 3,000 in that category”.
“So what have you discovered?”, I asked.
“For God’s sake it’s obvious,” he said. “They’ve gone over the edge”.
That sounds reasonable.
NOTE – Hugh advises Science Minister Dr Megan Woods has written the Introduction. The book will be launched by Justice Simon Moore, a noted flat-earther, at a date to be announced.
