Lewis Fofanah is a mechanical engineer. He was born in Makeni, in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone, West Africa. He attended Roman Catholic Primary School and Saint Francis Secondary School in Makeni. In 1976, Lewis got the opportunity to go to the Soviet Union to study Mechanical Engineering on scholarship. There, he attended the Astrakhan Institute of Industrial Fishing and Economics. In 1982, he completed his MSc in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Ship’s Power Installation and Propulsion. The same year, he married his fiancé, Tatiana, and in 1983 immigrated to Germany. Lewis currently lives in the United States with his wife and two sons.
In 2014, Lewis went to visit his home country, Sierra Leone. When he returned from vacation, his children told him that some people believe that the Earth is flat. At first, Lewis found it quite funny. However, later he watched several videos on YouTube. The information they presented compelled him to look at that possibility further. The more he researched, the more amazed he was as to how the astrophysicists have been deceiving people for years, presenting fake theories about the universe. Through his research and hard work, he found enough information and logic to prove that the Earth can never be a globe. He also presented evidence about the solar system that it does not exist. This was when he came up with the idea of writing his book and letting the world know the reality. When he started writing this book, his goal was just to debunk the lies the astrophysicist has been telling for centuries. The more he wrote, the more God gave him the inspiration to come up with facts that cannot be refuted. It took Lewis almost a year to write the entire book.
