Saudi cleric has a weird theory about the Earth; says Earth is stationary

A Saudi cleric dismisses the theory that the Earth revolves around the Sun and says that the Earth is stationary. He has a funny, weird logic which we failed to understand.

“First of all, where are we now? We’re going to Sharjah Airport to travel to China by plane, is that clear? Focus with me, this is the Earth,” while he held up a water cup.

China would be coming towards it in case the Earth rotates in one direction. If the Earth rotates in the opposite direction, the plane would never reach China, because China is also rotating,”
