5.0 out of 5 stars Proof that the world lost a great scientific mind in 2000, February 11, 2009
This review is from: Worlds of Their Own: A Brief History of Misguided Ideas: Creationism, Flat-Earthism, Energy Scams, and the Velikovsky Affair (Paperback)
Some people believe the Earth is flat and the center of the universe. It may sound unreasonable, but they still have their supporters. "Worlds of Their Own: A Brief History of Misguided Ideas: Creationism, Flat-Earthism, Energy Scams, and the Velikovsky Affair" is a collection of writings from the late Robert Schadewald, a science writer who spent much of his time debating with creationists and flat earthers in the name of science. The testimony of a thirty-year expert in the realm of debunking pseudoscience, "Worlds of Their Own" is proof that the world lost a great scientific mind in 2000.

Great reply. Can you point me to the actual science that proved the Earth is a spinning globe - orbiting around the sun?
I can't seem to find out if it was the "Roman Catholic Church" that produced the science - or if it was a scientist that discovered incontrovertible proof? For the last 500 years or so, we've known about the globe - but before then - it was accepted as a flat earth model (geocentric??). I'm curious - who provided the evidence way back then - that the heliocentric globe model is correct? What was the defining event or experiment that finally persuaded science/the church to throw away the flat earth model? I get asked that and can't find an answer. Thanks.
