Iran to host conference on whether the world is round.

Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad is hosting another conference, this one "to examine the scientific evidence supporting the Zionist hypothesis that the world is round."

Ahmadinejad already had called the voyages of Magellen and Drake myths and said that world maps should show the world as flat, "as revealed in the Holy Quran."

"There will be a conference that will research the topic of the shape of the world and all its dimensions in the future," according to a statement on the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

The statement did not say when the meeting would take place or who would be involved but said it would be sponsored by Iran's Foreign Ministry and the Organization of the Islamic Conference "and in consultation with other countries to pursue this issue."
