Kyrie Irving on the Road Trippin’ with RJ & Channing podcast:

This is not even a conspiracy.
The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat.
All these things that particular groups -- I won’t even pinpoint one group -- that they almost offer up this education. The fact that, in our lifetimes, that there are so many holes in so many pockets in our history.
There is this history. I don’t want to dictate it to one race, dictate it to any one particular type of people or anything like that. History is history, and it’s happened long before us, and it’s going to happen after us. And it always repeats itself somehow, in some way. All these things that they keep giving to us.
I’m just saying that these things that ultimately used to put me in fear, and this thing used to be like, “Aw, man.” It makes you not want to question it, naturally. Because of how much information you can actually figure out and how much information there actually is out there. It’s crazy. Anything that you have a particular question on -- OK, is the world flat? Is the Earth flat or round? I think you need to do research on it.
It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.
For what I’ve known for as many years and what I’ve come to believe, what I’ve been taught is that the Earth is round. But I mean, if you really think about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we move, and the fact that, can you really think of us rotating around the sun and all planets aligned rotating in specific dates being perpendicular with what’s going on with these planets?
Everything that they send or they want to say they’re sending doesn’t come back. It doesn’t come back. There is no concrete information except for the information that they’re giving us. They’re particularly putting you in the direction of what to believe and what not to believe. And the truth is right there. You’ve just go to go searching for it. I’ve been searching for it for a while.
It’s the journey of finding it. It’s almost expanding.
I can go on about all the questions I have, but what it really came down to for me was, everything that was particularly thrown in front of me, I had to just be like, OK, look, this is all a facade. This is all something that they ultimately want me to believe in, that is true whether or not or whatever. But now, there is a certain aspect of life in which I want to tell people about, which is this true journey of really becoming a complete individual and total freedom of thought. Do you know what I’m saying?
