Saudi cleric rejects the fact that Earth revolves around the Sun, says everything else is moving around us

Saudi cleric Sheikh al-Khaibari is an Internet sensation thanks to his debunking of the myth that the Earth revolves around the Sun. In a video gone viral, he rejects the scientific fact that our planet is moving, and shares his evidence that the world is stationary by quoting other clerics who share his astronomical faith. He even uses a water cup to demonstrate his theory, saying that if a plane going from the UAE to China stops flying in mid-air and stays still, China would approach the aircraft if the Earth was turning in the opposite way. However, if the plane and the planet were travelling in the same direction, then you would never reach your destination. In an ironic coincidence, the Sheikh made his declaration on Feb 15, on the 451st birthday of Galileo Galilei. The Italian astronomer was twice accused of heresy by the Church for his belief that the world revolved around the sun. And in tomorrow’s news: The Earth is flat.
