Bob Knodel has sadly died.
To some an Internet grifter and a science denier. To others an inspiration and a truth seeker. But to all a character we all felt we knew often promoting a great deal of debate and discussion. I’ve no doubt his family and friends saw a side of him we didn’t and will miss him. To them I send my condolences.
He leaves behind a legacy of the man who proved earths rotation then tried to cover it up so today of all days all I can say is…
RIP Bob Knodel
