  •  Remember this one? (8+ / 0-)
    THE new co-host of "The View," Sherri Shepherd, yesterday insisted Christianity was older than ancient Greece, and even Judaism.

    Shepherd - who said earlier this year that she didn't know if the world was flat or round - said during a short-lived discussion of Greek philosophy on yesterday's show that she was pretty sure nothing "predated Christians."

    The verbal jousting began when Joy Behar mentioned watching a History Channel show on the Greek philosopher Epicurus and his definition of happiness.

    "Keep in mind that probably when [Epicurus] was around, there was no Jesus Christ stuff going on," said co-host Whoppi Goldberg said.

    "They still had Chris tians back then," Shep herd interrupted.

    "They had gods," Goldberg said.

    "They had Christians," Shepherd insisted. "And they threw 'em to the lions."

    "I think this might predate that," Goldberg said.

    "I don't think anything predated Christians," Shepherd shot back.

    Behar then piped in.

    "The Greeks came first, then the Romans, then the Christians," she said.

    "Jesus came first, before then," Shepherd said.
