Customer Reviews

Galileo did not say the earth goes around the sun.
Harry Holloway
All the book really does is ask the reader to pretend the Earth is stationary and that everything else moves pretty much the way science says it does.
M Windmill
We are no longer the center of things, and this makes people insecure.
L. Crowell

I never gave Geocentrism much thought until seeing this work by Robert Sungenis. This book was very interesting especially the quotes from famous scientists themselves that support this thesis. I would have gave it 5 stars but a lot of the scientific language is confusing. As usual Robert Sungenis does not disappoint. He is a Catholic Apologist to be reckoned with.

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.

If you are reading the reviews for this book, you probably noticed how they are extremely polarized. There are lots of reviews with either one or five stars, and very few in between. This may lead you to think that the book is prone to radicalism and there's no middle ground, but here's the kicker: nobody who gave it one star actually read it. Nobody. Not even the preface. I never met anyone who harshly criticized this book without betraying the fact that they never read it. Everyone who wrote negative reviews here is assuming the book is about something else, presenting objections that are clearly answered in the book, or not directing any real criticism at all, just having a knee-jerk reaction and ranting.

You may agree or disagree with it at many points, as I myself do, but I doubt anyone can honestly say this isn't a good book.

The central thesis of Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right is simple. We believe we live in a remote corner of a remote galaxy, of a remote group of galaxies in a really big universe, not because of scientific evidence, but because our history and cultural background leads us to prefer that view over others equally valid on scientific grounds, some even more valid. Sometimes we even twist our scientific theories to preserve that notion, trying to make some naturalistic sense out of the many anthropic coincidences present everywhere we look. Modern scientists somehow took men from the center of everything and put us into a meaningless universe not on the basis of scientific evidence, but on the ideological purpose of doing precisely that.

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.
