[From a thread entitled, "Why I am a Geocentrist"]
When it [the moon] comes closer and closer it gets in the stronger and stronger pull of Earth’s gravity. How can it then resist that pull and start going against that attraction? Contrariwise, as it goes out to the apogee and is moment by moment breaking loose from Earth’s gravitational pull at tremendous speed, how can it stop the outward movement and start back??
If everything is attracted to everything. The entire universe should be stuck together in one big blob!
If the moon's (and/or sun's) gravity was what controlled the tides, there shouldn't be high tides on the opposite side of the earth from the moon. [...]
If it isn't gravity that keeps the planets in their orbit, then what is it?
There are many alternate theories (i.e. Electric Universe) but before you ask that question decide if you really need an alternate theory. As Christians who believe in an almighty, infinite and sovereign God who is created everything that there is; why do we need to find a naturalistic explanation for everything? Is it not enough to say that God is in control and accept God’s word as correct?</li>
Doesn't it require faith to believe that the earth is center and stationary?
Sure, but no more faith than it takes me to be a Bible-Believing Christian. And certainly much, much less than it would take for me to swallow evolution or geocentricity’s alternative, heliocentricity!</li>
Imagine for a moment that science did have "proof" that conflicted with the Bible's blatant Geocentricity; which would you believe then?
Such a scenario is impossible, but if that were the case I would be left with no other choice but to accept what God says; science has been wrong before and it will be wrong again! "Let God be true, but every man a liar;" Romans 3:4. "He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool:" Proverbs 28:26. "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." Proverbs 3:5.</li>
Why was I taught in public school that heliocentricity was a proven fact?
Because even though it is a feeble and very lacking theory, it is one of the best purely natural explanations and it is compatible with the (insane) theory of evolution.</li></ul>
