Is the world flat or round?

Flat World?

Have you ever had someone ask you a simple question, and you find out you’ve never really thought about that particular issue and don’t really know the answer?

One of the co-hosts of The View, Sherri Sheppherd, said she didn’t believe in evolution so co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked her if she believed the world was flat or round.

The video here, including a partial transcript.

Crazy, you’d think something like this is common knowledge.

    That’s just plain horrible. I recently had a discussion with some friends about the average american which seems to be completely ignorant about anything happening outside of america and their own FOV. The whole “war on terror”-stuff and the dedication of the average american shows that they obviously have absolutely no clue about what’s going on in the world (taking any blantly stupid explanation for certain actions), and not limited to politics but also science and arts. Really strange. And the evolution thing : seems the even the pope and the catholic church are more “educated” about this than some americans, and they were (understandably) very contra in this issue for centuries.
