Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.(Isaiah 47:13-14) KJV
The experimental basis for the purported proof of heliocentricity is vast. Fortunately we collected up all of the submissions to our “can you prove heliocentricity?” challenge which began December 25, 2015.
Our up-to-date list of all of the material which is supposedly proof of heliocentricity. It’s not.
Here’s the list of things, phenomena or individuals, that purportedly prove heliocentricity, only they don’t. Not even close. Articles which supposedly prove heliocentricity, or debunk Geocentrosphericity, are generally a hodgepodge of 2-7 of the items below.
- Aberration of starlight
- Aether drag
- Angular size of the sun
- Bessel and 61 Cygni
- Bradley and Molyneux
- Citing incorrect Geocentric models
- Coriolis effect
- Doppler and the Voyagers
- Foucault pendulum
- Gravitational assists
- Kepler’s Laws
- Lorentz’ length contraction
- Luminiferous aether
- Mass of the sun / Newtonian physics
- Moons of Jupiter
- Phases of Venus
- Procession of the equinoxes
- Redshift / Universe expansion
- Relativistic reference frames
- Retrograde / relative motion
- Seasons and weather
- Special relativity
- Stellar parallax
- Stellar spectroscopy
- Transit of the ISS during an eclipse
- Transit of Venus
- Variation in the sun’s orbital radius
None of these purported proofs prove heliocentricity. They’ve been woven into the peer review driven narrative of heliocentricity by using sleight-of-and and the tragically poor state of scientific knowledge of the general populace. Popular science (SciPop) couldn’t exist without ignorance.
