Just a public service reminder:
Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
Now, lets take a brief stroll through history. Sometime around the year 600 B.C.E., Pythagoras suggested a three-dimensional/spherical model for the Earth. It was regarded as a scientific and mathematical fact by the Greeks and most other civilizations in the region within 300 years. It does not make sense that the flat Earth view experienced a resurgence, even among educated people, hundreds of years after the preponderance of the civilized world had accepted the Greek model unless the spread of Christianity and the biblical literalism it brought with it is taken into account. It was Biblical literalism which reintroduced the flat Earth view as a valid belief and, yes, many of its proponents were educated people with important roles in the early Christian Church and positions of influence in the courts of converted monarchs and emperors.
Over the next few centuries, the flat-Earth model gradually faded away again and was only espoused by an almost invisible biblical literalist minority. Its now the late 6th/early 7th century C.E. Enter Isidore of Seville. The biblical literalists just would not let the two-dimensional Earth model die and, when a man regarded by some of his contemporaries as one of the sharpest minds of the age says he thinks the Earth is a two-dimensional wheel, BAM: 1,200 years of established scientific fact goes flying out the window again and we get Earth-wheel maps floating around for the next 700 years. Its fine if some religious people, such as yourself, want to spend another 1,900 years trying to reconcile the empirical realities of the world and universe we live in with your beliefs, but don't make the rest of us come along for the ride or try to muddy the waters with pseudoscience and arbitrary reinterpretation of biblical text along the way.

No evidence, no profile, no content, just a silly guy who doesn't like another guy and makes up **** in a transparent, ineffectual attempt to discredit him.
BTW Muhammed anyone can score high on those online IQ tests if you take them enough times to look up and memorize the answers. You obviously haven't impressed anyone here with your unproven, full of yourself, claims of intellectual prowess and my bet is that you are not likely to start now.
Give it up, your unsubstantiated egotistical claims and tired trolling tactics are as old and about as useful as last weeks used coffee grounds.
If you have nothing more than an unexplained dislike for Bill Nye then perhaps you should keep it to yourself.
