When the earth does move it is called an EARTHQUAKE!!
St. Paul said:
WYSIWYG — What you see is what you get!!
The Biblical geocentric model of the universe is called WYSIWYG — What you see is what you get...True science is supposed to be based on observation. We see the array of stars wheeling around the earth approximately daily, and we motorize our telescopes to follow their steady motion. We see the sun rising and setting daily. We see the planets doing roughly the same thing, and we see the moon following them on a somewhat different schedule, all revolving around the earth as our eyes testify.
There is no justification at all from what we observe to arbitrarily assume the stars to be fixed and the earth rotating. The beauty of geocentricity is that what you see is what you get! It is a simple and readily understandable scenario for those who are willing to believe what their eyes tell them, and make the mental transition back to the instinctive reference frame of a stationary earth.
Encyclopedia Britannica offers NO PROOF for a rotating earth!!
Many people consider the Encyclopedia Britannica the FINAL AUTHORITY on all scientific matters. No publication is as anxious to see the earth moving as the Rockefeller owned Britannica. So we won't be amiss if we consult this final authority on heliocentricity and see their PROOFS for the moving earth. Here is a quote from the New Encyclopedia Britannica:
You can search all 29 volumes of this final authority but you will look in vain for any PROOF for this revolution of the earth around the sun and its spinning on its axis every 24 hours. It is simply stated as DOGMA and to doubt is to be damned to a spinning hell forever by the "scientific" community.
The one proof they do offer is that the earth has a BULGE at the equator which they claim is caused by the earth spinning around for BILLIONS of years. Here is another quote from the final authority:
Ordinary mortals cannot see this bulge however as it is visible only to the editors of the Britannica articles.
The sun orbits the earth every 24 hours
Heliocentric "astronomers" greatly exaggerate the size of the solar system and the universe. They make the universe so big that it cannot possible orbit the earth in 24 hours.
Take the sun for example, the ancient Greeks said that the sun was only about 3.000.000 miles (4.828.032 km) from the earth. This was the number given by Ptolemy and the great Arab astronomer al-Battani. Even Copernicus in his book On the revolutions of the heavenly spheres gives the number at about 3.000.000 miles. The rotating earth people stuck a 9 in front of the 3 and with this mathematical sleight of hand we have a sun whose distance from the earth is exaggerated 90 times!!
The seasons are caused by the annual motion of the sun around the earth!!
As well as orbiting the stationary earth every 24 hours, the sun also follows a spiral orbit from north to south each year. That is what gives us the 4 seasons.
On September 23, the sun, moving south, reaches the equator again. The day is again 12 hours long. That day is called the autumnal equinox and is the official beginning of autumn.
On December 22, the sun reaches its most southerly point. That day is called the winter solstice and is the official beginning of winter. The sun shines up from beneath the equator. At noon the sun is straight overhead at points on the earth's Tropic of Capricorn, 23 1/2° south of the equator. At that time, it is the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere. The cycle again repeats itself and gives us our 4 seasons and the solar year.
The winter solstice occurs on June 22 in the southern hemisphere. 3 days later it is June 25 or "Christmas" day in the southern hemisphere. So merry Christmas to all down under!!!!
The moon orbits the earth every 24 hours 50 minutes
The moon orbits the earth in about 24 hours 50 minutes. This is called a lunar day. The resultant orbital lag between the sun and the moon causes the phases of the moon— and the TIDES.... It is the moon’s close proximity to us and the relatively strong gravitational effect it has on the earth that causes the OCEAN TIDES to follow the moon’s lunar schedule of 24 hours and 50 minutes per cycle.
In about one month the sun and moon are again synchronized and as a result we have the new moon and the cycle repeats all over again.
The phases of the moon
Everybody who looks up at the moon can see that it presents a different shape or face throughout the month. These different faces are called PHASES OF THE MOON. Since Galileo and Kepler, here is the way the "scientific" community explains the different phases:
How eclipses of the moon are caused
When the moon moves between the sun and the earth it casts a shadow or umbra on the earth, blocking or partially blocking our view of the sun. This is called a solar eclipse.
When the earth moves between the sun and the moon it casts a shadow on the face of the moon, blocking or partially blocking our view of the moon. This is called a lunar eclipse.
The great celestial cover up
In the heliocentric system it is IMPOSSIBLE to have phases of the moon without having a major solar and lunar eclipse at least twice every month. The spinning earth can't save them this time because the shadow would just move with the turning earth and more people could view this spectacular heavenly display twice a month.
Here is a table of approximate moonrise and moonset times for the east coast of the U.S. at latitude 45 degrees and using daylight savings time. You will notice that the moon has about the same 12 hour period of earth orbit as the sun. Try looking up every night and checking it for yourself.
The Foucault Pendulum
Many "astronomers" cite the Foucault pendulum experiment that was carried out in Paris in 1851 as PROOF that the earth turns. It's a pity that the NASA space program has not provided them with more recent proof. Here is a quote from a 36-year veteran of the space program with a Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Michigan:
Foucault was a failure until Napoleon III became his patron!!
Foucault was a failure at everything he did until Louis Napoleon became his patron. Louis was the nephew of the emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and became president of France in 1848. In 1851, he abolished civil liberties and declared himself dictator of France.
Cardinal Richelieu was the founder of the French Academy!!
In 1631 the Paris Mint struck a medal in honor of Cardinal Richelieu; the reverse shows the Cardinal's spirit in the form of a winged genius driving the firmament of stars around an immovable earth with the motto in Latin: mens sidera volvit meaning: his intellect makes the stars revolve:
Imagine the embarrassment of the members of the French Academy when they were forced to grant credence to the heliocentric humbug by making Foucault a member of that august assembly.
All the Bonapartes were Jesuits
There is a definite conflict of interest in this Napoleon sponsored experiment to prove that the earth is turning....It might be a "coincidence" but the future emperor Napoleon was born on the island of Corsica in 1769. That was just 2 years after the Jesuits were dumped on that island when Pope Clement banned them with a perpetual decree never to be rescinded.
