Round Earth?

I certainly don’t think someone’s articulation of faith is something to be ridiculed. Talk show host Sherri Shepherd acquits herself sincerely and succinctly when she expresses her grounding in faith in response to a question about evolution.

Check this video. But in responding to Whoopi Goldberg’s question, “Is the world flat?” Would you believe:

“I don’t know.”

The talk show host is pressed a bit more. How would she respond if her child asked, “Mom, is the world round or flat?”

“Baby, we’ve got to go to the library.”

In Shepherd’s defense, her wikipedia entry gives a reasonable explanation:

The very next day, Shepherd explained that she never had to defend her religious beliefs before, and that she became overwhelmed with the many questions that were being thrown at her. By the time Goldberg added her question, Shepherd was nervous and did not fully comprehend what was being asked. She stated that she knows that the world is round.

Here’s my question of the day:

Does Michael Behe believe the Earth is round?

The Bible indeed says one thing, but his header depicts something else.

  1. ” Does Michael Behe believe the Earth is round? The Bible indeed says one thing, but his header depicts something else.”

    Are you implying the Bible says the earth is not round? Where do you believe Sacred Scripture says such a thing?
