|Aww, Joe's having a hissy over my comment here:|
|That's easy - Geocentrism. Clearly spawned from creationist views - tested - and found wanting. Young Earth also. |
and he's OUTRAGED, OUTRAGED I tells ta:
|What an ignorant puke. Geocentrism was the SCIENTIFIC point of view-|
In astronomy, the geocentric model (also known as geocentrism, or the Ptolemaic system), is the superseded theory, that the Earth is the center of the universe, and that all other objects orbit around it. This geocentric model served as the predominant cosmological system in many ancient civilizations such as ancient Greece. As such, most Ancient Greek philosophers assumed that the Sun, Moon, stars, and naked eye planets circled the Earth, including the noteworthy systems of Aristotle (see Aristotelian physics) and Ptolemy.
Aristotle was about 400 BC
But every-one's favourite science textbook (Pt1) is from about 1400 BC
Just a millennia too late, Joe. One of your better efforts.
And if you don't think people don't use scripture to form their cosmological views, I'm sure someone can come up with quite a good example...
No hissy-fit, just pointing out your ignorance.
And linking to some other ignorant asshole doesn't help.
Do you think that just because someone can interpret the Bible any way he wants that it makes what he sez true?
You are more pathetic than I thought...
