Quote# 9231

But despite the testimony of all the equations, and despite the published testimonies of top scientists to the viability of geocentricity as a model of the universe, and despite the total and complete inability of experiments to establish its truth or falsity; some will still scoff at geocentricity. How can one ever determine which is the truth? Only by going outside the universe and taking a look around can one ascertain the truth of the matter. Without that ability to "look around outside," physics cannot resolve the debate. However, since God does know what is beyond the universe, shouldn't His word be taken as the final authority? It is the testimony of God as found in the Bible which constitutes the foundation of modern geocentricity. May it ever be so.

Sorry, there are no tie-breakers in science.

\"Without that ability to \"look around outside,\" physics cannot resolve the debate.\"

What the fuck does he think NASA does?

Uhhhhh...

\"All the equations\"? The ones that tell us that no known forces could result in the orbits of the planets that would be consistent with our observations? The ones that require epicycle orbits for geocentricity, as opposed to simple elliptic orbits for heliocentricity? Those equations?

Produce fake moon landing movies, of course. They are an unmentioned subsidiary of the Disney corporation, or don't you know?

Dr. Kent Hovind is not a top scientist. He's not even top of his class at the Special Needs Adult Learning Center.

This cannot be for real, can it?

You can't fool me with more of that there science-babble, Crosis! God can make the equations balance!

It still fascinates me that all of these people still want to prove God through some sort of pseudoscience. Isn't that the opposite of what is supposed to happen? I mean, knowledge and evidence preclude faith, so ... aren't they trying to work themselves out of faith and into knowledge? Isn't that exactly what they accuse these \"evos\" and so forth of doing?

It can hardly be possible to be more determinedly stupid than this.

has this guy been frozen in a glacier for the last five hundred years or so?

I think his \"top\" scientist must be a gay kinda thing because it sure can't be \"highly regarded\".

It got one thing right!

\"It is the testimony of God as found in the Bible which constitutes the foundation of modern geocentricity\"

Just as well God doesn't exist - he'd be kept down in Junior School and given crayons to play with.

Actually, we can disprove geocentricity quite easily.

All we have to do is go someplace that isn't Earth, look out into the universe in all directions, and observe that everything in the universe is accelerating away from us at the same rate...

@NonHomogenized:

We can create a model of physics that is geocentric, that's not the problem. It doesn't really make the calculations easier, though.

But basically, physics works, no matter from where you look at it, and which point in the universe you choose as your origin.

However, there is no viability in saying \"Geocentricity is the correct model\", which is what our Narrow-pathed Pilgrim seems to mean.

I could say we went to space and saw the earth going around the sun, but he probably believes that it was all a hoax.

If this clown is legit, we should put him/her on a preserve. There aren't many geocentrists left in the world, and the number gets smaller with every generation. It would be sad if they went extinct.

I'm just yankin' you. It wouldn't be sad at all.
