Last week, we brought you the incredible news that Australia is actually fake and we're all paid actors.

And now, in yet another bombshell set to rock your world, we're learning that the earth is not round - or flat - but shaped like a doughnut.

The latest theory comes courtesy of an ex-Flat Earther whose technique seems to be "Well, try and prove me wrong. I dare you."

"I was wondering how a theory like FE theory gets formed, and I came to the conclusion that someone must've thought of the original idea," Flat Earth Society member Varaug wrote in a forum called "Donut-Shaped Earth".

"And then it must've been followed by a long series of people pointing out flaws and then re-adjusting the theory (or thinking of new ideas) to iron out the flaws in the theory.

"I thought it might be fun if we emulated that here."

Varaug went on to explain that he believes that "Earth is in fact shaped like a torus (a donut shape)" but because "light is curved... we cannot tell."

It wasn't long before the non-believers started questioning Varaug's obviously sound theory with such ridiculous questions as "Why has the hole in the centre of the torus not been discovered?", "How does the light curve" and "Why can't I see the opposite side of the torus".

Of ye of little faith.

Luckily, there was an answer for every question.

"Light bends and follows the curvature of the torus, making the hole 'unseeable'," Varaug replied to the first question.

"Light waves... are reflected by the atmosphere," he answered the second. "When we look across, the light diminishes as it travels and by the time it reaches the atmosphere, it is diminished enough to be reflected.

"The light will then hit another corner of atmosphere and so on and so forth, curving every time. This gives the impression that the Earth is flat (or has a slight curvature)."

Following? Great.

To the third question, Varaug said: "When you stand in the middle of the [Torus Earth] and look up, the light passes through the first atmosphere it reaches. However, by the time it reaches the second atmosphere, it has diminished enough to be reflected, and gets reflected into space, so you see space."

Right, we think that's just about enough for one day, thank you very much.
