Fake News

Fake news

Fake news is so common that we overlook it every day. It can be found on every news channel and in every newspaper. It is a sly act created by reporters and politicians to sway the minds of blind followers and uneducated viewers. In fact, there are hardly any politicians that have not used or have been involved in forms of fake news to get votes or publicity. Reporters are so persuasive in ways that make us believe that whatever they say is true. Often times with enough convincing, they believe their own stories. Online fact checkers attempt to prove against the fake news, but it is often that they don’t even see through the lies. No matter what happens, fake news will always be lingering where we least expect it.

In some ways, I feel as though this is clear. But like anything, my explanation can be debated. Especially since this is one of the most debated topics of our time.

I just want to start off by saying I very strongly believe that the Earth is round. Science is has come too far for people to have a question on the shape of our planet. Not only have we had people in space before, but we have a generalized map of other planets, the solar system and the entire galaxy. To be able to identify structures that are many many light years away, identifying the shape of the Earth is like child’s play compared to all of that. The rotation of our planet on its axis is what creates Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. So for someone to say they think the Earth if flat, they must also think our 4 seasons don’t exist. At that point they should ask themselves how meteorologist are able to predict weather patterns the way they do?

This leads me into earthquakes and tsunamis. Earthquakes are caused by the movement of tectonic plates on the Earth’s crust. The overlap of these plates causes an elevated mountain-like figure in the crust and causing a ripple effect, thus creating the shake we feel in earthquakes. Tsunamis are a very similar phenomenon except it occurs below sea level and the shifting of plates causes monumental waves that crash down on our coastlines.

To tie these two concepts together, lets create a scenario where California has an earthquakes near their coastline. The Pacific Ocean is the body of water between California and Asia, more specifically the Philippines. After the earthquake a week or so later the Asian Islands show to have larger waves than normal on their beaches. This goes to show the earth is infact round because the fault lines are all intertwined in a spherical manner.
