After declaring her disbelief in Darwin's theory of natural selection during a September 2007 appearance on The View, Shepherd was asked for her opinion on another burning scientific controversy:

Whoopi: Is the world flat?
Shepherd: Is the world flat?
Whoopi: Yes.
Shepherd: I don't know.
Whoopi: What do you think?
Shepherd: I never thought about it, Whoopi. I -- Is the world flat? I've never thought about it. I -- I --
Walters: You've never thought about whether the world was round or flat?
Shepherd: I've never -- no, because -- But I'll tell you what I've thought about: How I'm going to feed my child, how I'm going to take care of my family.
Walters: Well, you can do both.
Shepherd: The world -- "is the world flat" has never entered into -- that has not been an important thing to me.
Hasselbeck: What would you teach -- you'll teach your son Jeffrey what?
Shepherd: If my son Jeffrey asked me if the world was flat, I guess I would go and, and look it up.
