If you didn't know it, the Earth is the center of the Universe.
No all astronomical evidence shows the Earth is a tiny insignificant part of a Universe so vast it is beyond all comprehension.
The stars and their galaxies give off a red light shift away from their natural color because they are all moving away from the Earth.
This is completely relative. If you were to be on one of those stars the light coming from the Earth would appear as if the Earth was moving away from you. Also the Andromeda galaxy is on a collision course with ours.
[i]Well, it's simply because the Lord created the Earth and our Sun and all the stars (other suns) using the Earth as the Center of Creation. From this central hub, the galaxies are moving away, causing a red light shift. There is no other explanation.[i]
Like I said this is completely relative. I wouldn't be surprised if someone on an alien planet an equally irrational alien being was making the exact same argument.

And I thought I was narcissistic.

Erm.. no. If every object is moving away from every other, it will not be possible to determine which one is the center if you're yourself one of these objects.

"What science proves" Ahahahahahahaha!

David...all of your grade school science teachers have just committed suicide over your post.

THE DOPPLER EFFECT AND REDSHIFT DO NOT WORK THAT WAY

I am the center of the universe. I know because cars change pitch(high -> low) when they go past me. Nobody else ;)

There is a huge gulf between what "the WORD" says and what science proves.

In my religion, Oa is the center of the universe. I have text to prove it, too. Earth, though, is the center of the Multiverse, which is why we have so many gods here to protect it.

I'm fairly certain that Galilleo proved this false...
11/28/2007 1:46:47 AM
Yeah, we're here. It happened here. We're not anywhere else. We're here.
DUH! If we were anywhere else, it would have happened elsewhere. What's the significance of it being HERE OMG!!@@!

And astronomy proves you wrong, and bat-shit crazy to boot. FAILURE IMMINENT!
11/28/2007 2:07:15 AM
Failed astronomy didn't you?
1 The Earth isn't the center of the universe, it isn't even the center of the solar system.
2 The universe is expanding. A redshift will be observed not only from the Earth but from any point in the universe.

If you didn't know it, the sun goes around the earth. It goes up in the east and goes down in the west because it's going around and around.

"Seriously cap'n, the website canna hold much more of this massive overload of failure!"

I think I just broke my clue-bat. Can I just tell this guy to find the edge of the world, and jump off it?
11/28/2007 6:16:19 AM
Failed astronomy again?
11/28/2007 6:17:59 AM
"It was here, and not in some far-flung galaxy,"
But if we were in some far-flung galaxy then that place would be here.
Did your head just explode?

You can't actualy prove earth isn't the centre of the universe. I read that in A Short History of Nearly Everything.
11/28/2007 7:18:43 AM
Failed astronomy? No way he ever TOOK astronomy.

Next up in our 16th Century news roundup: some fellow named Copernicus, with a startling new idea concerning planetary motion.
11/28/2007 8:03:15 AM
You never picked a book on astronomy did you?
11/28/2007 8:12:34 AM
I hope someone explains the "raisin bread" effect to him.
Short version, the universe is like a giant loaf of raisin bread dough and each galaxy is a raisin. As the dough rises the bubbles in it expand pushing every raisin further from the center of the dough, but also pushing every raisin away from every other raisin at the same time.

the WORD also says the Earth is a flat disk, and if you believe and drink poison you won't die.
At least they were semiliterate shepherds living in the bronze age. It was natural for them to believe this or some equivalent myth.
What's your excuse for believing it now?
11/28/2007 8:27:40 AM
You really need to read this guys website. I laughed. I peed. I came.
