From MEMRI TV via LGF:
Iraqi Researcher Defies Scientific Axioms: The Earth Is Flat and Much Larger than the Sun (Which Is Also Flat)
He knows this to be true because it's in the Koran. On other scientific questions I suspect he also heeds the literal Koran. For example, I suspect he diverges somewhat from Darwin - evolution theory-wise. He could probably find a sura demonstrating that only Jews are "descended" from Apes (and Pigs).
But, then, he didn't bring up Mormons, either.
