Kansas School Board Results Encourage Flat Earthers.

Proponents of a theory that claims the earth is flat rather than "round" are encouraged by the Kansas Board of Education's decision to rewrite "the definition of science, so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena." This breakthrough may provide an opportunity for Flat Earth Society members to make their views more widely known.

"The facts are simple," says Charles K. Johnson, president of the International Flat Earth Research Society. "The earth is flat." Johnson is a true believer, not just of his controversial theories, but also in traditional Christian Mythology, "Moses was a flat-earther," he reveals. "The Flat Earth Society was founded in 1492 B.C., when Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt and gave them the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai."

Johnson hopes that the inclusion of Intelligent Design in the Kansas curriculum will open the door for theories like his to be taught in high school earth sciences course or maybe even in public university geology classes.

Hey, if it was flat, we could keep it in a match box, and take it to the pub with us, to show our friends after a few drinks, along with the other matchbox which contains the bit of cheese with the face of Christ...
