Well, this is depressing: TV hosts debate whether the Moon is a planet or a star.

QVC host Shawn Killinger and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi debate whether the Moon is a planet or a star.

Not sure what Mizrahi’s excuse is, but you gotta love his “let a man set this silly woman straight” tone.

In the case of Killinger, the sort of Christian who says “Have a blessed holiday,” it seems an example of what happens when people try to get their science from ancient religious texts:

(Isaiah 30:26) Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun…

(Ezekiel 32:7)  And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.

(Matthew 24:29)  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

(Mark 13:24)  But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light.
(Matthew 24:29)  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

(Mark 13:24)  But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light. sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light.
