Actually read the books. Watch the films too, but more importantly, read through the books.

Then be the judge...but not before. Do not be guilty of the same misconduct that was fettered upon Galileo, in a time when much of what he said seemed absurd and was regarded as lunacy by the common people. Maybe times have changed...maybe in 500 years science has uncovered something counter-revolutionary. And maybe, with that unexpected discovery, that same tenacity of resistance, which so strongly came to the opposition of Galileo, has now come to his aid and has not grown lax.

For sure, make a judgment. Only make an informed one in light of a proper understanding of the opposing side. Or else, how could a fair and adequate judgment of the proposed science be made?

A scientific claim must be undone scientifically, and with facts. Likewise the claim itself must be supported by factual evidence. Let us not assume that the authors and producers are completely naive and have not considered the history of science and modern cosmology.

Let us give them a fair chance and at least read through the material; making arguments that come from a knowledgeable viewpoint and that are effective--not merely accusatory in nature or pre-construed from an uninformed perspective.

At first I was considering writing a satirical review, but after seeing others that actually take this seriously, I had to be serious myself.

It is obvious at first glance that the author has a vested interest in denying a heliocentric solar system. His other works are all Catholic apologetics, and he is also a Holocaust denier. This fact alone brings his premise into question. Reading this, it is obvious that he started with the forgone conclusion that the Earth is stationary, and then compiled evidence to support that, rather than reaching a conclusion based on the evidence alone. This is the worst kind of intellectual dishonesty, and this book is so willfully ignorant of basic science that I hesitated to give it any credence by reviewing it.

The fact is, every single shred of evidence, from planetary science, to rocket science, to direct astronomical observation, supports a heliocentric view. There is no inconsistency. Indeed, there is also photographic evidence in the images sent back to Earth by the Cassini spacecraft that shows the planets, the Earth among them, exactly where astronomers say they are supposed to be. This is simply a case of someone who doesn't like that the evidence doesn't support his pre-conceived notions. Travel to the moon (which he probably thinks was faked), sending probes to other planets, geosynchronous satellites, and the most basic observational astronomy is impossible in a geocentric model. Don't like it? Sorry, but the universe doesn't bend itself to your desires.

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.

The simulations were helpful. The book is true, Galileo was wrong.
God does guide his Elect to the truth.
Thank you authors for the work you have done.
Further proof that the majority are on the broad path to destruction and only a few are saved and see the truth.

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.
