Still my favorite Wahabist (and close to the top on Muslims overall).
It is good to hear about prominent people who reject heliocentrism.
However, I suggest you compare Wahabys to Sufis.
If we made a rough analogy between Islam and Christendom, then the Shiites are most analogous to Eastern Orthodoxy.
The Sunnis are analogous to the Franks, and Wahabism is most like protestantism.
Protestantism broke off of the Franks and abolished ancient Christian traditions.
Wahabys broke off of the Sunnis, and abolished ancient Islamic traditions.
Wahabism only dates to the 1700's and includes the Taliban, Osama bin Laden, and the corrupt leaders of Saudi Arabia.
Wahhabism is not traditional Islam, and it has a western origin.
As a matter of fact, the 'Memoirs of Mr. Hempher'
is an approximately 200 year old document that shows that the founder of Wahabism, Ibn al Wahab was directed by an employee of the British government with the aim of creating a movement which would eventually fragment the Ottoman empire.
Sufism is the extreme opposite end of the Islamic spectrum from Wahabism.
Some Sufist sects have preserved Eastern Orthodox practices within Islam such as Zikr chants and also prayers and other practices modeled after the hesychasm of eastern Christians.
