    On Iraqi TV, a physicist and a “researcher on astronomy" debate whether or not the Earth is flat.

    It includes exchanges such as ...

    Round Earther: When you watch a ship sailing towards the shore, all you see at first is the mast. Then you see the bow, and eventually the entire ship.

    Flat Earther: When you stand on the beach and look into the distance, everything you see is in the visible distance. In the blurred distance, you cannot see a thing. Later on as the ship gets closer to the shore or the harbor, you see the upper part. How do you see it? The eye, as I have said, no doctor has succeeded in understanding how the eye works.

    The only reason John McCain believes in evolution is because he was there when it first started taking place.

    Our political candidates have more of an excuse than the Iraqis. They haven't actually experienced evolution.
