It's like the opening sequence for an outbreak movie.

 

There's always someone who thinks whatever they have to do is more important than the survival of millions.  :(

Doc Savage TV series in the works

 

Cool.  Aside from Dwayne Johnson, I wonder who'd be a good fit for the title character?

 

I thought for a long time that all Dwayne Johnson would have needed is makeup and hair dye to be a perfect match for Clark Savage Jr.

 

When you raised the question, first person I thought of was Armie Hammer.

Great, you just gave a bunch of sharks the coronavirus, you should be ashamed.

 

Just immolate his ass, like we do to other possible plague ridden materials.

While trying to prove that the Earth is flat.

Most flat earth arguments I've read seem to boil down to "The Bible says the Earth is flat. Therefore, the Earth is flat."

 

Mind you, when the Old Testament was being written its writers had only a vague idea that there was a world beyond the Middle East. And by the time the New Testament was composed pretty much every educated person knew the Earth was not flat. John of Patmos could still use "the corners of the Earth" as a metaphor, but I doubt he really believed in a flat Earth. Jesus did not express an opinion on the topic that is preserved in the Gospels. (The final verses of the Gospel of John refer to thousands of insights and statements Jesus made that are not preserved. I'd be interested to hear some of them.)

 

(This is not limited to the Judeo-Christian world either. The Quran apparently refers to a round Earth, but at least one Islamic scholar has said that he would be believe in a flat Earth had the Quran stated such a thing. Scripture -- any Scripture -- can be taken too far by any believer in anything. We even see that with fandoms.)
