To be clear, he starts this by saying "I'm wrong on this".
As chronicled by Yahoo's Ben Rohrbach, Irving and Redick then proceed to complete the conspiracy-theory superfecta with talk about chemtrails, whether dinosaurs existed (Redick apparently is leaning toward no here) and 9/11. For instance, the word dinosaur.
J.J. Redick has been hanging round with Kyrie Irving, and the topic of dinosaurs came up. And then all of a sudden in the next 15-20 years, after a British scientist comes up with this word dinosaur and describes it in a medical journal, people started finding fossils. And I'm thinking to myself, 'alright, humans - like Homo sapiens - we've been here since, like, 10,000 B.C. We've been roaming the Earth, we've had multiple empires all over the world... and in all that time, we didn't find any fossils until 150 years ago?' .

In the recording, Redick presses Kyrie about his Flat Earth claims and Irving tries to explain himself, but accidentally reveals the deeper lengths of absurdity that are reached when we discover just where all this Flat Earth "research" came from: Instagram. And if you think about the actual intent behind it was: "Do your own research".
