A scientific debate in the form of diss tracks has exploded into a sonic duel between rapper and “flat” earth theorist  B.o.B and astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

Rapper B.o.B. claims to have photographic evidence that the earth is indeed flat, citing that “the horizon is always eye level…” as proof. If that wasn’t mind-numbingly stupid enough, he also released a strange track entitled “Flatline,” where he told Tyson to “loosen up his vest.” Okay.

While B.o.B has taken up many strange and despicable causes of late (he doesn’t believe the Holocaust happened), flat-earth truthing now occupies the majority of his Twitter feed. Along with his query to Tyson, he tweeted a question along with a photograph asking why there’s no visible curve between two cities.

In response, Larry Wilmore of The Nightly Show initiated a “science emergency Defense distress call,” enlisting Tyson to explain some of the basic principles of calculus and non-Euclidean geometry to the musician.

Tyson then finished off with “The earth isn’t f**ing flat,” before dropping the mic and saying, “By the way, this is called gravity.”

    Obviously, the guy knows more than this page will ever know about religion. Sadly, both think that their ignorance qualifies them as experts on the topic.

    It’s actually nearly unthinkable to find well-advised parties on this theme, fortunately you appear like you know what exactly you’re talking about! Gratitude
