Logic, no matter how rigorous, breaks down when we're speculating about the origin of the universe from the starting point of having rejected the truth: God revealed testimony about our origin.
The sun orbits the Earth in a helical spiral. The sun is called Helios in Greek. Either the sun is called Helios because it has a helical orbit, or helices are called helices because they mimic the motion of the sun - Helios.
In the wake of recent fluctuations in Betelgeuse's brightness, astronomers have rigorously examined the star's vital statistics, and come up with a bit of a surprise.
Scientists studying the star Betelgeuse have determined that it’s actually roughly 25% closer than previous estimates.
Objects in space may be closer than they appear. Betelgeuse isn't only around 25% closer to Earth than previously thought, but it’s also considerably smaller. Those aren't our words, they're from the popular science press (SciPop).
When we change our assumption from Heliocentric to Geocentrospheric it has an effect on the distance to stellar objects. This is because of the way that stellar parallax works.
We have to take a step back and remember that we are on popular science turf (SciPop) when we start talking in their terms about the cosmos. SciPop wants you to believe that the stars are distant suns and galaxies.
Radiometric dating has been contrived in such a way as to make it look as if the "dates" it calculates for rocks are absolute. Absolute means that the dates are separated on a timescale which is known.
In the scientific method there's a lot philosophy involved in constructing a logical framework which should produce an experimental result which is free from bias.
Galileo’s bluff is the starting point for THE NARRATIVE of heliocentricity. It’s an induced rationalization of evidence to fit the premise, it’s not proof of heliocentricity.
