'Proof' the Earth is flat

This debate took place on Iraqi television between an astronomer researcher and a physicist, with the former senior gent in question not convinced that the Earth is round.

Let me point out right now that about half way into this 5 minute video I started to get the feeling this is a clever fake. And it may well be. If anyone can verify the sub-titles match please leave a comment.

"the moon is half the size of the sun"

Is it getting hot in here?

An Iraqi creationist. It says so in the Koran, therefore it is true. We can all stop learning now.

This kind of fundamental lack of understanding of science is scary. What's worse is he has made up "facts" (like the sun and moon's diameter) to make himself sound believable.

"No doctor understands how the eye works". Sorry - every year 10 high school student taking physics knows how the eye works, I'm afraid.

I suppose the good news is he's rejecting anything that can't be proven in the Quoran? Excellent. I suppose that means you'll be packing up all your bombs and guns, coz they're not in the Quoran either. Don't see too many jet fighters or tanks in there, either (ok I must admit at this point in time I haven't read it, so they may be in there, towards the back).

I just love that the guy saying the Earth is round, though, has a book called "science". :-p
