That’s right everyone, there is still woo around saying that the earth is the center of the universe. And they’re having a conference! Yay!
Galileo Was Wrong is a detailed and comprehensive treatment of the scientific evidence supporting Geocentrism, the academic belief that the Earth is immobile in the center of the universe. Garnering scientific information from physics, astrophysics, astronomy and other sciences, Galileo Was Wrong shows that the debate between Galileo and the Catholic Church was much more than a difference of opinion about the interpretation of Scripture.
Scientific evidence available to us within the last 100 years that was not available during Galileo’s confrontation shows that the Church’s position on the immobility of the Earth is not only scientifically supportable, but it is the most stable model of the universe and the one which best answers all the evidence we see in the cosmos.
When I realise that I have done someting STUPID !! I tend to describe myself as “a Charter Member of the Flat Earth Society”. Sometimes when I use this in conversation I am asked “Rally, Can I also join?”
Holy shit! (literally) How farkin’ stupid must you be?
Here’s a bit of scientific method.
Hypothesis: The earth is at the center of the universe.
Test: If hypothesis is correct, EMR doppler shift from visible stars would be nonexistent or uniform regardless of declination/right ascension.
Actual observation: Doppler shift indicates red/blue cycle (from individual star’s baseline) with a period of one earth year.
a) The earth is NOT at the center of the universe, or
b) The earth is at the center of the universe, with EVERYTHING ELSE in the universe having the sun as it’s center, while the sun rotates around the earth.
These Geocentrists are all a bunch of fools, I’d like to point you to a series of videos made by a Youtuber called NephilimFree. The first video can be found here. Since this guy first came to the Youtube scene there has been an almost constant battle between him and some of the more free thinking producers on that site.
Again I’ll use Mr Sagan in my response, he said, in his book called Pale Blue Dot, that anyone who still believes that the universe revolves around this world is merely blinded by their own arrogance. They are too arrogant to see that they are as significant as “a mote of dust in the morning sky”. I’ve obviously paraphrased that but his words ring true.
It sounds odd to hear scholars and statesmen say the world is flat;
but it is a fact that three Boers favored by the opinion of President
Kruger prepared a work to support that contention. While I was at
Durban they came from Pretoria to obtain data from me, and they seemed
annoyed when I told them that they could not prove it by my
experience. With the advice to call up some ghost of the dark ages for
research, I went ashore, and left these three wise men poring over the
Spray's track on a chart of the world, which, however, proved
nothing to them, for it was on Mercator's projection, and behold, it
was "flat." The next morning I met one of the party in a clergyman's
garb, carrying a large Bible, not different from the one I had read.
He tackled me, saying, "If you respect the Word of God, you must admit
that the world is flat." "If the Word of God stands on a flat world--"
I began. "What!" cried he, losing himself in a passion, and making as
if he would run me through with an assagai. "What!" he shouted in
astonishment and rage, while I jumped aside to dodge the imaginary
weapon. Had this good but misguided fanatic been armed with a real
weapon, the crew of the Spray would have died a martyr there and
then. The next day, seeing him across the street, I bowed and made
curves with my hands. He responded with a level, swimming movement of
his hands, meaning "the world is flat." A pamphlet by these Transvaal
geographers, made up of arguments from sources high and low to prove
their theory, was mailed to me before I sailed from Africa on my last
stretch around the globe.
