Cleric: Sun revolves around Earth

Sheikh Bandar al-Khaibari dismisses Copernican astronomical model, says moon landing a Hollywood fabrication

A cleric from Saudi Arabia aimed to redefine science in the 21st century by claiming that the sun revolves around the Earth and not the other way around, as scientists have foolishly thought for centuries.

Sheikh Bandar al-Khaibari gave a lecture recently about his version of how the universe works in the United Arab Emirates, dropping this groundbreaking discovery on stunned students at a university in the Gulf state, Al Arabiya reported.

When one student asked about the movement of planets, the cleric maintained that Earth was “stationary and does not move,” explaining that if the planet did indeed rotate, planes could not reach their destination.

The sheikh also joined thousands of conspiracy theorists worldwide in asserting that the moon landing was a “Hollywood fabrication.”
