Galileo was not the "inventor" of the heliocentric theory, it's origins pre-date him and it wasn't even entirely accepted science until years later, mostly through the work of Tycho Brahe and Issac Newton. Of course scientifically ignorant people only know the name "Galileo" because that was mentioned on that one day in school when they weren't sleeping!

The easiest refutation to all this modern geocentrism nonsense is something that many of you might have in your car right now! It's called "GPS." If the Earth did not move and instead the entire universe simply obeyed a whole other set of fast-and-loose physical laws, then GPS would not work. Nor would satellite TV. Or cellular networks. All of those things rely on complex mathematics connected to general relativity that, if they were false, would be disastrous for the entire world on a daily basis. This book would essentially have you believe that the Bible is literally true, but that you have to go through some of the most insanely complicated logical loopholes and intellectual dishonesty in order to re-interpret reality which is, of course, par for the course with apologetic nonsense. That people buy into this in the 21st century is yet more evidence that we are headed for a new Dark Ages with religious nutbags who want to retreat into their bible-shaped hugbox because they are too scared of the real world. Your bronze age fairy tale created by illiterate desert nomads might not be the best thing to base a foundational view of the world on, just sayin. Oh, and for all the people saying you're "close minded" if you don't agree with this tripe: Yes, because nothing says "open minded" like voting down people's negative reviews en masse because you can't handle some criticism! Hypocrite, much?

But Gallileo and Coerpnicus were wrong - the stars DO NOT orbit the Sun.

While this book is certainly rubbish, I find it fascinating that any modern scientist would stand with Gallileo and Copernicus, as what they proposed WAS incorrect.

Tycho Brae - a towering historical astronomer - pointed out that the absence of measurable stellar parallax could only be explained by A) the earth not orbiting the sun, but vice versa or B) the stars would themselves have to be unfathomable distances away. And if (B) were true - that would mean the orbit of the stars around the sun would be covering such an immense distance that they would be totally destroyed. Which is in fact true - and as we know they would have to go millions of times the speed of light to make such a journey.

So what is stellar parallax? Take a look at two objects close together in your home, then move your head slightly to the left, and then slightly to the right. You will notice the relative positions of the objects have moved. Aristotle was the towering mind that pointed out "if the earth were orbiting the sun, at the two extremes of that orbit (6 months apart) we would observe a difference in the relative positions of the stars (the stellar parallax)... since no such difference is detectable, we must not be orbiting the sun".

What Aristotle did not know is what was suggested by Tycho Brae - the stars are unfathomable distances away - so far that telescopes powerful enough to measure the stellar parallax of even the closest of stars would not exist until the 19th century. To this day the stellar parallax is the most accurate way to measure the distance to other stars - and we can only do it accurately with very few.

One misunderstanding I see concerning pre-enlightenment cosmology is the perception that in pre-enlightenment cosmology, the Earth was in an exalted position at the center of "the universe". I think it may be that the Earth and Humanity were perceived as special and central in God's creation - but also fallen and corrupted. So, the perception held that the celestial realm was marked by purity and perfection. Our place in the cosmos - the Earth was seen as "base", imperfect and corrupt. If one was sinful, he or she would sent down to an even lower more base and corrupt realm - hell. So, even Corpernicus and Galileo may not have been able to imagine ellipitical planitary orbits - because the heavens are a realm of perfection - not distortion and imperfection. This is why Galileo's discovery of the moon's craters was so jarring - even to Galileo. How can a celestial body have such imperfections? The sad thing here is what might be missed by those who indulge in pre-enlightenment nostalgia. In many ways, the Earth is at the center. The Earth is perfectly located in the center of our sun's habitable zone and even within our home galaxy in terms of its location between the center and the edge. Further, the presence of the moon, asteroid sweeping Jupiter, our powerful magnetic field, the Earth's precise axial tilt, even the Earth's active geology and many other precisely balanced factors (some of which we are dangerously disrupting) all contribute to an apparently miraculous home world. Astronomers are hunting to find "another Earth" - but such a discovery will be a long time in coming. To understand the importance of the Earth we must deeply connect with a realization that it is exquisitely unique, precious, rare, and for our needs as a home for ourselves and our descendants, fragile and delicate.
