The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) NKJV
Scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISWs) frequently tout the importance of empirical evidence. They use the phrase like parrots squawking “pieces of eight, pieces of eight.”
They use the word empirical as if it’s an atheist deity who can save them from the truth. However, none of what they believe is actually empirical, it’s all theoretical.
The most brazen exploitation of the concept of “empirical” is found in Kepler’s laws. According to the laws, the sun is observed to be at one focus of empirical ellipses. It’s empirical, and so it’s been used as a way of saying that there’s empirical evidence of heliocentricity. This is sleight-of-hand.
The empirical evidence (the sun is at one of the two foci of elliptical planetary orbits) has been incorporated into a theory (heliocentricity). This has grown into the widespread belief that heliocentricity is observed. Another widespread belief is that the heliocentric theory has somehow defeated the geocentric theory or rendered it to be impossible. This is also sleigh-of-hand which is part of the strong delusion. Heliocentric and Geocentrospheric are two frames of reference in the same system, they coexist.
Heliocentric or Geocentrospheric?
- IF you were on the Sun you’d be observing heliocentricity,
- SINCE you’re not, you’re on the Earth, you’re observing Geocentrosphericity.
The problem, and the solution, is that the planetary system (in which the sun is observed to be at one focus of elliptical planetary orbits) just happens to be orbiting the Earth everyday. The observation that the sun is at one focus of elliptical planetary orbits is made from the Earth, therefore the Earth is the second focus.
Ellipses have two foci. In terms of orbital mechanics there has to be a source of gravity at both foci.
Kepler’s laws are empirical evidence of Gecentrosphericity. The big difference is that Geocentrosphericity is inherently empirical, while heliocentricity is theoretical.
