Someone specialized in astrophysics is not competent to help third world countries. I personally believe in science. I have not read all the rants before because when it doesn't come from an appointed physicist or published, scientific rant usually make me laugh to death. I just notice I've read the words "down" and "up" which, on a cosmic scale, don't mean anything. No, in gravity theory, it is the mass of the earth, as opposed to the space vacuum, and its inside composition that makes any approaching object attracted to its core, thus orbital attraction and gravity. A flat earth could not exist in a complete vacuum. This beach ball idea is pretty hilarious actually I won't consider the "all science is wrong/technology is evil" point because there is no possible comparison so it's null to my eyes. Go tell Prometheus what you think of his gift. And so are the last points which are pretty funny and makes me re-consider your seriousness.
