Ketika saya mula-mula berinteraksi dengan pengiman bumi datar, saya pernah disuguhkan suatu cuplikan video oleh salah satu pengiman FE yang berbicara tentang Michio Kaku dan Einstein yang salah. Anda bisa lihat potongan videonya di sini:
yang merupakan potongan dari video lengkap episode 11, mulai dari menit 34.20 hingga 39.07.
Dari video flat earth itu, ditunjukkan seolah-olah Michio Kaku menyatakan bahwa Einstein salah. Pernyataan Michio Kaku ini dipotong dan dipelintir untuk menyalahkan relativitas Einstein dan membenarkan ajaran bumi datar setelahnya. Namun apakah betul demikian? Ternyata tidak. Ternyata Michio Kaku tidak menyatakan bahwa relativitas Einstein salah yang kemudian dijadikan “efek domino” oleh pengiman FE, melainkan beliau berbicara tentang systematic error yang bisa mengacaukan hasil eksperimen.
Berikut adalah video lengkapnya tanpa dipelintir oleh FE:
Dan berikut adalah transkrip lengkapnya:
Many physicists had a heart attack when we got news from Geneva, Switzerland that Einstein might be wrong. All hell broke loose in the physics community. Every physicist I know was taking a position on this hot topic because relativity is the foundation of modern physics

along with the quantum theory. Now what they found was if you take a beam of neutrinos from the atom smasher in Geneva, Switzerland, shoot the beam through the mountains from Switzerland to Italy over a distance of 454 miles, the neutrinos out-raced a light beam by a distance of 60 feet, 60 feet over a distance of 454 miles. Well, that doesn’t sound like much, but to a physicist
(dipotong oleh FE)
this is a disaster. It means that the foundations of modern physics have to be called into question.
not to mention that we’ll have to recalibrate everything – the age of the universe, the age of stars, the distance to the stars, the basic structure of modern electronics has to be changed, the GPS, nuclear weapons, all of that would have to be recalibrated and rethought through if Einstein’s theory of relativity is wrong.

So, what’s the solution to the problem? Well the solution to the problem is obviously they goofed. They made a mistake. I remember when I was a grad student years and years ago at Harvard. My advisor at Harvard was professor Pound and he had the famous Pound-Rebka Experiment where they shot a light beam from the top of Jefferson Hall to the bottom of Jefferson Hall. Now, there was a rival group, a rival group that also did the same experiment and they had to calculate the speed of light in the process. They found that the speed of light actually rose in the morning, peaked at noon time, then the speed of light began to slow down at dinner time, and reached a minimum at midnight. Wll, this was shocking. The speed of light, which governs the universe all of the sudden is wedded to lunch time and dinner time.
So, what’s the problem? The problem was that this counter experiment, this rival experiment, was done outdoors, and the sensors were temperature-dependent, and of course it’s warmer at lunch time and colder at midnight. Well, professor Pound’s experiment was done indoors and therefore didn’t have that kind of variation.
The lesson here is: SYSTEMATIC ERRORS CREEP INTO VERY DELICATE CALCULATIONS.
Some people think they found the source of the error. How do we know that from Switzerland to Italy the distance is 454 miles? Well, you use GPS, right? Obvious, but GPS is a relativistic system. It uses relativity and some physicists have claimed that they miscalibrated the distance from the sensors to the satellite and satellite back down to Italy, a triangle, that one of the lenghts of the triangle was miscalibrated in the process of doing this experiment.
Now there is another counter example. Back in 1987, light from a gigantic supernova in the Magellanic Clouds hit the planet earth and simultaneously with that, neutrinos were detected in gigantic neutrino detectors in Japan. So we had a double whammy – light from a supernova right near the Milky Way Galaxy hitting the earth at the same time as neutrinos from a galaxy tens of thousands of light years from the earth. So here’s the rub. Why should we believe this CERN experiment over a distance of 454 miles when over a distance of tens of thousands of light years neutrinos and light beams hit the earth at the same time? That’s why many physicists believe that they must have made a systematic error someplace and the weak link, the weak link in this whole chain of reasoning is the GPS system. And the GPS system itself is a relativistic system. So in some sense they’re using relativity to defeat relativity and I think there is something circular about that.
Setelah kejadian itu, maka saya semakin yakin bahwa pembuat video-video FE, atau siapapun oknum yang ada di balik pembuat video itu adalah seorang scammer. Seorang atau sekelompok penipu dan pemfitnah yang gemar memelintir fakta untuk menyebarkan kebohongan. Ini adalah cara-cara yang sangat tidak terpuji dan sangat “diharamkan” dalam komunitas ilmiah. Apa tujuan jangka panjangnya? Your guess is as good as mine.
