flat-earth wingnuts

No, the “flat-earth” insult isn’t just a slam against the anti-evolution IDiots, it’s even (disturbingly!) closer to reality than that. Some of the bible-banging Dominionists don’t want to drag our scientific knowledge back to the pre-Darwinian era, they want to go back before Copernicus. From the FixedEarth website:

The Earth is not rotating...nor is it going around the sun.

The universe is not one ten trillionth the size we are told.

Today’s cosmology fulfills an anti-Bible religious plan disguised as "science".

The whole scheme from Copernicanism to Big Bangism is a factless lie.

This website, not nearly far enough from the far Right, was approvingly mentioned in memos from GOP state reps in Georgia and Texas (h/t: Joshua Micah Marshall at TPM). Sara comments at Orcinus:

We've often derisively referred to the Christian Dominionists as "flat earthers."

Now, it turns out that bit of rhetorical whimsy was far more accurate than we knew.

Copernicus is dead. Long live the Dark Ages.
