Shell Flat Earth PhD Out of The University of Sfax, Tunisia
A Flat Earth Thesis has allegedly been underway since 2011 from the University of Sfax, however it appears to be fabricated, a "shell paper" created to generate a litany of public ignominy rooted in perpetuating Scientism as oppositional to Flat Earth Thinking across Academia, Science, and Religion.
The student is named as Amira Kharroubi, she has a paper thin LinkedIn Page, which basically only cites one area of study: geology, and that she'd been a studying at The University of Sfax since 2011, and 13 posts on Facebook since 2009 (for some reason you have to be logged in to view). I sent her a message asking if she were the student whom authored the paper but have not heard a reply.
The advisor's name is, Jamel Touir, he is the former Director of the Constitution Assembly of Tunisia, (the group that helped re-write the Constitution in Tunisia back in 2011), he claimed his student's Constitutional right to explore the idea, and defended her by saying it was only a "rough draft". Despite the Professor's point that the paper has not yet gone under review, he co-authored this 6 page "preliminary results" version which purports to have been published back in August of 2016 (Volume 4, Issue 8) in The Journal of Science and Technoledge, but which was only uploaded 3 weeks ago, on yumpoo.com, at the start of this whole shit storm. As of today, April 30th, 2017, it as 7773 views. (Click image to keep reading.)
In the truest sense, there is only one direction, known in English as North because all other "directions" are defined in relation to North.
North is defined geophysically by the magnetic pull of the Earth, and astronomically by Polaris (which means Pole star). There are 360 angles, consisting of three successive 90 Degree shifts away from North, known as East, South and West; all of which are all determined in relation to North. This axiom that there really is only one direction (the Earth's magnet pull), is evidenced by the fact that all "directions" except North are contingent, subordinate and defined in relation to the Earth's Pull.
If you live a few degrees below the Equator, and you can See Polaris, well then you've just debunked an Astrophysicist!
Shout out and call out to all the Flat Earthers and Globe-heads living near or around 2 Degrees South Latitude. That means you Ecuador, Brazil, Tanzania, and Indonesia (Jayapura)! Indonesia you may be the best bet as you Google "Flat Earth" more than any other country in the world. Simply go outside and see if you can find Polaris, check your Latitude on your smart phone, if you are below 1.5 Degrees South Latitude and you can observe Polaris, then you just debunked an Astrophysicist!
Rapper B.O.B.'s Disclosure-Addled Mixtape Dropped on Earth Day Last Year, it may be part fantastical, but what a Sonic Ride!
ATL-based Rapper B.O.B. (@bobatl) was the first major celebrity to put a dent in Scientism. His famous twitter-debate with Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson caused 'Pop-Science Global Disinformation Agents' to jump to the hop-to. NDT appeared on Comedy Central to drop a microphone.

Stanley Kubrik encodes secrets to his NASA Moon Landing work in his adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining. Fun Fact: The bar where Jim Carrey says, "We Landed on the Moon!" in Dumb and Dumber is from the same hotel.
Did Stanley Kubrick use The Shining to disclose his work on the NASA Moon landing?
The Royal Academy of Sciences displays its view of the earth, interestingly locked into a cage with a Measuring tape around it in the Movie Around the World in 80 Days.
A startling portrayal of the current "global" consciousness, in a throwback scene from the late 1800's in a remake of Jules Verne's classical novel, Around the World in 80 Days.
Secretary General of the Tunisian Astronomical Society replies to Spiritual North with a Press Release they prepared on the matter.
Was the Flat Earth PhD a Hoax? Mired circumstances suggest possible PhD Hoax and controlled oppositional narrative.
A shitty misspelled six page "draft" of a PhD engenders the condemnation of the Tunisian Astronomical Society, The University of Sfax, the Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education, and an Op-Ed by an Astrophycisist who worked for NASA. Is such activity warranted? Doesn't this seem a bit over-reactionary? Is it possible the reaction is the desired imprint of this story? Let's find out.
Reports have come in that a doctoral candidate from the University of Sfax, Tunisia, under Professor Jamel Touir, former deputy at the National Constituent Assembly, presented a Flat Earth thesis entitled, The Flat Earth Model, Arguments and Impacts on Climate and Paleo-Climate Studies, which claims, "all the data and the physical religious arguments have made it possible to demonstrate the central position, the fixation and the flattening of the surface of the earth, and the revolution of the sun and moon around it." After sustaining serious blow-back, possibly incited by a former president of the Tunisian Astronomical Society whom an early copy of the paper was leaked to, Professor Jamel Touir stands by his student defending both of their constitutional rights to 'freedom of thought' and 'academic freedom'. Professor Touir also notes that for this constitutional exercise he is now 'the object of a malicious campaign, damaging his reputation and his scientific skills."
The question herein is did Professor Jame Touir oversee a Flat Earth PhD Thesis since 2011, and if so, why can't anyone read it or know who wrote it? (Click image for more).
Neil Tyson Tweets About Flat Earth saying it is Fine to Believe So Long as You Don't 'Ascend to the Head of NASA'.
Guess what, the Flat Earth debate is still hot underway! Just yesterday, Astro-Actor Neil Tyson tweets again, this time to no-one and everyone in-particular, basically that it's cool to think the earth is flat so long as you don't work for NASA. Honestly Neil, do you think Flat Earthers are seeking gainful employment with NASA? Even for a smart guy like you, that's a bit far-fetched.
Bill Nye "The Science Guy" Asks Flat Earthers to Go The Edge, Take a Photo and Post it Online... Meamwhile, Nobody Can Go To Antarctica!
Bill Nye, the poster boy for the recent "Science March" which took place today, on earth day, co-authors an article entitled, "How to Shut Down Flat Earthers, According to Bill Nye". This is gonna be delicious.
The NYT is billing the march for Science as an Anti-Trump Rally.

On Tuesday April 25th, 2017 the Gotham Shield Exercise will Commence at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey
Whether this exercise will echo past events in history where real debacles occurred on the same day as events purported to be only for practice (See September 11th, 2001), remains to be known. However, here's a little food for thought from ODD TV, who picked up the trail from DITRH.
Here's what the Eastern Region Helicopter Council has to say about it.
Shaquille O'Niel continues being Coy About Flat Earth on Jimmy Kimmel
Interestingly, when Jimmy Kimmel asked, "that was a joke about the world being flat right?" Shaq replies, "Was it?" Despite Kimmel's leading question Shaq went on to explain his theory, taking a healthy chunk of time to discuss both points he'd originally mentioned, and then said he was joking again, most likely so that they wouldn't take away his p.H.D. in Education. Listen to Shaq's initial Flat Earth Debut, and watch him estimate the moon distance last December!

Marcellus Wiley Backs Kyrie Irving's Belief in a Flat Earth
Kudos to Marcellus Wiley for being open minded enough to ponder a new paradigm. A notable quote was, "At 36,000 ft I saw the skyline. And you know what I didn't see? A round skyline. It was flat from the left. And I went on the other side of the plane... it was flat on the right! And you know what Kyrie done broke it down! If ya'll don't wanna get on this train..." Kyrie Irving's Flat Earth Debut from 30,000 ft has become quite the trend.
