How far is the East from the West?
(We have not yet received any comments or questions about this video.)
A growing number of Christians claim that the Bible says the Earth is flat. This video examines one of these Christians' "proof texts" for this belief: Psalm 103:12, which says "As far as the east is from the west, so far has He [God] removed our transgressions from us". This works if the Earth is flat, but if the Earth is spherical, your sins just go around the globe and end up back where they started. This video digs into the powerful visual imagery presented by this and other Bible verses, and displays medieval maps showing that many medieval Christian scholars believed in a flat Earth.
