The image here was taken by Voyager 1 by aiming its cameras back towards the Earth and taking a series of pictures. It is called the Solar System Family Portrait.
Let's do a thought experiment. Thoughts experiments have been used by physicists for many years as a way to visualize concepts. It's a way to design experiments that we can use to test our hypotheses.
Here's the table of planetary mass values in the Geocentrospheric cosmological model.
When the sun is less massive than the Earth, planetary and stellar bodies have gravitational relationships with each other that have the same relative proportions, but at a different scale.
When asteroids approach the Earth they're at perigeon. You've heard of perihelion, we need a new word. We're going to coin a word to express the concept of perihelion, but proximity to the Earth (geo), not the sun.
Tycho Brahe made meticulous observation of the cosmos. He was on the Earth so, naturally, he observed a Geocentrospheric system. The problem was that he didn't know about binary systems because they hadn't made Star Wars yet.
The inner and outer planets have elliptical orbits because they orbit the Earth-sun binary system. Binary system? That's cool, there's one of those in Star Wars, right? Tatooine? Binary sunset?
Eccentricity is due to variation in the orbital radius of the Sun, not variation in the Earth-sun radial distance. The solar orbit is helical, origin of its Greek name "Helios".
Contrary to popular opinion, the Earth doesn't have an elliptical orbit of the sun. The Earth-sun radius is, for all practical purposes, constant.
A lot of people are involved in the science vs. faith debate. This is rather ironic since what they refer to as "science" is a sad parody called mainstream science (SciPop) which requires just as much faith as any religion does.
