    Wow - I realize that schools like Duke, Stanford, NW, etc. have a sliding admission scale for athletes, but if I were a Duke graduate, this would be depressing.

    I love how he implores people to "do your own research." No, googling crazy websites is not the same as scientific research. Lots of people don't understand that.

    Yes, but he didn't graduate from Duke did he? Wasn't he a "one and done", or not?

    I saw this earlier today. Even though I think they are crazy, I can at least understand the "the cia faked the moonlanding" nutjobs. How someone who flies regularly (sometimes incredibly long distances, like to China) thinks the world is flat baffles me.

    With the entrance requirements Duke has for regular students, if I were a Duke freshman, this would be depressing - and embarrassing.

    There was a rapper a couple years ago that claimed this, and Neil Degrasse Tyson called him out

    Hey no one is camping out to get tickets to watch regular students go to class.

    Ironic thing is he has probably flown around the world.

    The Flat Earth Society has an explanation for that. It's fascinatingly hilarious, as is most everything they espouse.

    He probably thinks humans caused the glaciers in Iowa or the formation of sea fossils in the limestone.

    Okay. Ask someone that's not NASA -- ask any cell network provider why their towers can't go on forever. Or any wireless-ISP why they can't just blast internet across the entire Earth.

    (Hint: this doesn't work because of the curvature of the Earth.) Stick to basketball, Kyrie.

    More junk science with a little bit of science or math to try and fool people.

    The real problem is that people are losing confidence in our government. For good reasons. They have lied and mislead people on so many things that you don't know where to stop and what is fake and what is real.
