Wow. That

Wow. That was...special.

 I love the classic theist response of trying to change the subject.

"I don't worry about the world being flat. I worry about feeding my child." Good grief.

I feel bad for that kid.

Nobody I know was brainwashed into being an atheist.

Why Believe?

It just goes to prove that

It just goes to prove that you can still be a knuckle dragging moron and still make more money that someone straight out of grad school. Perhaps the show just wanted a well rounded cast to represent all segments of the population. The flat earther just happens to represent the dumbest segment of society.

Apparently she retracted:

I saw this on

I saw this on richarddawkins.net and this blew me away.  Im scared.  I mean, she retracted her remark probably cause she found that what she was saying about the earth being flat is just idiotic (though the "I don't believe in evolution" should be considered just as stupid).

 

That was painful to watch.  However, it just reinforces what we are doing here at the RRS is needed.

Wow. Just wow. I heard

Wow. Just wow.

I heard people say flat earthers still exist, but I only ever saw one. I remember seeing a loony Dutch guy in the '80s saying this on Dutch television, but that was a program about unusual/crazy people and hermits etc. I have met al lot of people who tend to take the bible literal, but I never met or seen someone who thought the earth was flat. And this is a host on a national TV show? I wonder, is she home schooled?

Really? I was pretty sure the earth is banana-shaped. Now excuse me while I read up on how sheeps' bladders can be employed to prevent earthquakes.

Good night, funny man, and thanks for the laughter.

I think the dumbest move on

I think the dumbest move on SHerri's part was not denying that evolution occurs, or even suggesting that she does not know whether or not the eart is flat, rather, defending her remark by appealing to a brain fart.  Now "Do you beleive the earth is flat?" is a pretty basic question and what she claimed to have heard was absurd "*made up jargon* pluto *made up jargon* earth".  Now, I have had many brian farts.  Usually its walking to a place and forgetting why or totally forgetting what I was saying mid sentence.  But to hear a basic question and then interpret it as the most inane dissertaion of planetry physics takes great skill or brain damage.

I don't think we should make

I don't think we should make fun of that poor, retarded woman.  She clearly has some sort of chromosomal damage, and we are laughing at her.  She probably wonders why the fireball in the sky keeps coming around as well.

I first saw this about 10

I first saw this about 10 hours ago and I'm still aghast at how a fully grown adult could claim that they had never thought about what shape the earth is.

Are you freaking kidding me?  Hasn't she ever seen a globe of earth in school and not realized it represented the planet she lived on? 

 Crap, I have a globe of the earth sitting three feet from me here in my house!

<sarcasm>You just didn't

You just didn't listen carefully enough. They weren't talking about Earth being flat. They were talking about the world being flat. A universe (or world) with a flat (Euclidean) geometry cannot be ruled out.

Are you saying that when someone says "the world" they normally mean the universe?

...

Or did I just miss a joke?

Why should anyone care? She

Why should anyone care? She isn't trying to prove creation and she wasn't bashing evolution (like Kirk and Ray). She's just a talk show co-host.

I guess I should have marked it as a joke. Sorry about that.

Also, English is not my first language, and I have always thought that "universe" is one of the synonyms of the word "world" (even though they didn't mean it here) - that's where I got the idea for this remark/joke. Again, I apologize for this misunderstanding.

    Eh, either she's

    Eh, either she's stupid as a post, or it shows the massive lack of education, if that was her response, i would have recommended her to take grade 3 science again, hell go back to kindergarden i am sure they tell you there that the earth is round.

Links don't work in youtube

Did youtube take down these videos? I tried to view them and got the message that the video was removed due to terms of service violations when I clicked on the links. Can I see these videos on another site?

Thanks,

Marc

Yes they were taken down. 

Yes they were taken down.  It was on the View's website though so you might want to look there.

At least

Whoppi Goldberg had the sense to call her out. That one lady next to her was laughing. We should be scared to death that people that insane have the ability to get on Television. I mean no wonder our society is so stupid.
