As early as Greek mathematician Pythagoras, Greek philosopher Aristotle, Greek mathematician Eratosthenes and explorer Ferdinand Magellan mankind has discussed and come to a scientific truth that the earth is round. But, as recently, as January 2016 and February 2017; two celebrities - a rapper and an NBA player - have taken to the internet and proclaimed that the earth is flat. To most this seems like a bizarre statement, maybe a joke especially since the majority of us remember learning the earth is round in grade school. But to middle school teachers it is not funny nor a joke since celebrity holds more power than science.
