In a revelation that has left scientific research across the world in tatters, a top Saudi scholar and cleric has affirmed that the thinking of the Middle Ages was right after all: the Sun does in fact revolve around the Earth.

The startling discovery was announced in January on Saudi Arabia's Channel 1 TV and was related to the world by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Saudi cleric and member of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars, Saleh Al-Fawzan, was given a platform as follows:

Moderator: "And Allah says in a Koranic verse: 'And the Sun runs towards its stopping point. That is the determination of the All-Powerful, the All-Knowing.'

"Does the Sun revolve around the Earth?"

Switching to guest, Saleh Al-Fawzan: "There's no doubt about it. The Koran says: 'The Sun runs....' Nevertheless, they say that the Sun stands in place and the Earth moves. This contradicts the Koran. Ignoring the Koran and adopting modern theories is not something a Muslim can do. A Muslim must follow the Koran."

Well that's that then. The Sun does in fact revolve around the Earth.
