Is the Earth flat? UPDATE

If her child asks her if the Earth is round or flat, her answer is "I don't know"?! She sounds like a worse mother than Britney Spears. The intelligence of the rest of the cast isn't much better. This is the kind of philosophical discussion you'd hear in kindergarden. The fact that there's people on TV, on a mainstream popular show, talking about how we can't really tell if the Earth is flat or not, how it's not really important and how the belief that the Earth is flat should be respected because it is written in a racist, sexist and vile sadistic book... we're all fucked.

UPDATE: Check out how religious wingnuts are forced to take her defense. They don't believe the Earth is flat, but they don't take too kindly that science might be right about evolution. The comments I've quoted here are hilarious.

hahaha! I just read something about her.

"Her husband cheated on her, tried to take her house, made a baby with another woman, and now she's back with him because she "prayed about it." Now she is working on being "friends" with the husbands girlfriend, for the sake of her kid."

whoopie asked a dumb question. of course the earth is round. it is scientifically proven, and all that crap. but it ALSO SAYS THAT IN THE BIBLE. isaiah 40:22 talks about the circle of the earth, original hebrew meaning "sphere". true science, such as the round earth, is not contradictory to the bible. heres a question.... if everyone beleived that the earth was flat, how the hell did isaiah know the earth was round without every going into space????

Because he really thought the Earth was flat. Isaiah also talks of the four corners of the Earth. A sphere with corners? *sigh* e_e Whoopie wasn't stupid because she cornered that dumb bitch Sherie. As a Bible literalist, she was forced to believe the Earth is flat. Her fault for being so close minded.

Isaiah 11:12
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH. (KJV)

Revelation 7:1
1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. (KJV)

Job 38:13
13 That it might take hold of the ENDS OF THE EARTH, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? (KJV)

Jeremiah 16:19
19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ENDS OF THE EARTH, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. (KJV)

Daniel 4:11
11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the ENDS OF ALL THE EARTH: (KJV)

Matthew 4:8
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; (KJV)

For your information, the greeks knew that the earth was round simply by observing the movement of the stars in the sky. And that was before they though that flying was possible.

sirkowski, when you quote about the "four corners", your leaving out 3 things: 1, that isaiah DID say that it was the circle of the earth in the verse i mentioned, 2: "four corners" is a common expression, even today. and 3:, isaiah did not right in english. so when old english translators changed it from the original hebrew "all parts", they sayd "four corners" as a way to say what isaih meant. you have to go back to the way he wrote it, not the way it was translated. also, the bible is very accurate scientifically. even in psals 139:6 states that "you saw the embryo of me" and that "all my parts were down in writing" what do you think that means>? its talking about dna. when your conceived everything about you is recorded in your dna, as if it were down in writing. pretty accurate if you ask me.

psalms 139 and verse 16, not 6. and also, deuteronomy 14:7 talks about rabbits chewing their cud. scientists argued for years, saying that that was not true.

Scientific observation of hares and rabbits in more recent years, however, indicates that even more than seeming cud chewing is involved. Writes François Bourlière (The Natural History of Mammals, 1964, p. 41): “The habit of ‘refection,’ or passing the food twice through the intestine instead of only once, seems to be a common phenomenon in the rabbits and hares. Domestic rabbits usually eat and swallow without chewing their night droppings, which form in the morning as much as half the total contents of the stomach. In the wild rabbit refection takes place twice daily, and the same habit is reported for the European hare. . . . It is believed that this habit provides the animals with large amounts of B vitamins produced by bacteria in the food within the large intestine.” On the same point, the work Mammals of the World (by E. P. Walker, 1964, Vol. II, p. 647) notes: “This may be similar to ‘chewing the cud’ in ruminant mammals.”

Yeah, Jesus was a famous rabbit breeder... wtf? Talk about a non-sequitur. But meh, you wanna talk about poop?

Rabbits do not chew the cud since they just swallow the turd. There's no chewing involved, unlike cows who do indeed chew the cud. Rabbits make two kinds of pellets, the active kind (hard) and the rest kind (soft). They swallow the soft one whole, without chewing.

Seems you fell for an urban legend, because the scientific research involved here is much older than what you claimed.

Obviously the authors of the Old Testament observed the rabbits eat their own turds and mistaked the jaw movement as chewing. Which it is not since the pellets pass through the digestive system intact.

Now stop wasting my time with your biblical shit.

and i'll say it again about the rabbits.... the original hebrew made no distiction about whether the animal used its teeth to chew. it was a dietary restriction for the jews because it digested its food twice, not because it chewed up its shit.
