If the earth is not round..

March 28th 2008

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?

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
