[The whole page qualifies, really]

WYSIWYG — What you see is what you get!!

The Biblical geocentric model of the universe is called WYSIWYG—what you see is what you get...True science is supposed to be based on observation. We see the array of stars wheeling around the earth approximately daily, and we motorize our telescopes to follow their steady motion. We see the sun rising and setting daily. We see the planets doing roughly the same thing, and we see the moon following them on a somewhat different schedule, all revolving around the earth as our eyes testify.

There is no justification at all from what we observe to arbitrarily assume the stars to be fixed and the earth rotating. The beauty of geocentricity is that what you see is what you get! It is a simple and readily understandable scenario for those who are willing to believe what their eyes tell them, and make the mental transition back to the instinctive reference frame of a stationary earth.

Yay, foggy highway again. There's obviously no street 100 meters in front of me. It's being built by fog-elves, then removed after I have driven past.

Oh, and in case you didn't know, science doesn't claim that the stars are "fixed"; they're actually moving, both relative to each other, and to our sun and the earth.

"There is no justification beyond some ancient bronze-age mythology book to arbitrarily assume the earth is fixed and the stars are moving. The beauty of religious stupidity is that you can make up whatever crazy shit you want, and then claim "goddidit" as the answer to every question you have. Religion is a really fucking stupid scenario for those who are unwilling to accept what science tells them."

Fixed.
