If the earth is not round..

The convincing tone of the Iraqi Astronomy researcher Fadhel Al-Sa'd in his elaboration on the shape of the earth in an Iraqi television show, is just as ridiculous as it is impressive. Nonetheless, some established modern 'information society' thinkers agree with him that the world is flat (well, metaphorically that is).

First of all the guy is a complete dumbass, and his is definately not a muslim. The quran mentions nothing of what he says. the quran mentions nothing about the earth being flat, nor that the earth is round.. but it is spherical! this was in the Quran long long long before scientist proved it. He is not a muslim!

Every (wo)man has his own right to proclaim his truths. It just gets scary when one will not listen to sound reasoning, and base his beliefs on a book which is 1400 years old. Mankind has made (scientific) progress since, will someone please covince this man of that?

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
