The sun orbits the earth every 24 hours
The seasons are caused by the annual motion of the sun around the earth!!

I'm not a spambot
He's not contradicting himself, read the next sentance, "As well as orbiting the stationary earth every 24 hours, the sun also follows a spiral orbit from north to south each year. That is what gives us the 4 seasons."
It totally makes sense now!

Holy what the fuck. How do people actually believe this?
I can't stand people who believe crazy bullshit just because it makes them feel "special" - both because they're literally the center of the universe and because they're essentially claiming to be smarter than 99.999999999999% of the educated population. We're duped! We're sheeple! Grow up.

Damn, my IQ level just dropped. Didn't we scrap that notion centuries ago?

HOW THE FUCK DOES IT WORK.
(alternatively, fucking crazy people, how do they work?)

I don't suppose there's any point trying to explain to him that Neptune would be travelling faster than the speed of light in his little universe.

Because of course, the sun magically changing its position relative to the center of a disc causes seasons, and that 'disc shaped' Earth he proposes in one of his "proof" images only shows Africa. So he's a statonary-Earth, flat-Earth believer that flibbles up some science of his own to explain away the glaring inconsistencies
Bleeding idiots. How do they work?!

Holy irrationality, Batman!

Geocentric theory was proved wrong centuries ago, but ignorant, "faithful" fucktards just can't stop believing it.

"n/a" in this case aptly describes the OP's intelligence.

This is stupid, but just how stupid is it? Let's just assume for a moment that the sun
orbit the Earth.
24h is 86400s and the distance from the Earth to the sun is (on average) 1.50*10
Then using v=2
*r/T gives v
m/s. This is roughly 3.6% the speed of light, that's fucking ridiculous as far as I'm concerned.
