Why The Earth Is Not At The Center Of The Universe.

I just read a blog advocating the geocentric model and just wanted to drop some math on ya.

In order for just the other stars in our galaxy to travel around the earth every day they would need to travel at 5,451,388 light-years per second, and would emit enough radiation from the conflicting centrifugal and centripetal force to vaporize everything in the galaxy.

Furthermore the earth would have to have a gravitational field hundreds of billions of times that of the sun in order to make them revolve around the earth at just the slow-poke speed they actually move, not the 7.5 billion times the speed of light they would be travelling at which would necessitate far more gravity and be far more devastating.

Furthermore if you add in all the other galaxies all of these figures increase exponentially.  Rather than 5 million lightyears per second the galaxies outside of our own would be traveling at over one quadrillion light-years per second in order to travel around the earth every 24 hours.

People believe this.

Creationism DVDs are a tax on people who are bad at math : )

    First, the earth doesnt have to revolve that fast, even if it is the center. It could be perfectly still in the center. And the fact that galaxies are moving away from this point of the universe suggests it is near the center.

    And it doesnt need everything to revolve around the earth, so gravity is not needed. All it has to do is stay in place or be close enough to be in the center.

    @gmx0 – As I said to others who raised the same objection:The people who believe in geocentrism though tend to believe it for religious reasons, because of this:”The Earth is firmly fixed; it shall not be moved.” -Psalms 104:5That would mean the earth is neither revolving nor spinning, meaning that the universe is whizzing by around it, thus this blog.

Speak yer mind.
