[geocentrism] Dynamical Equivalence

Dear All,



The rotating world is essential for worldly acentric cosmology, the blasphemous 
belief where the centre of the universe is nowhere and the circumference of 
which is everywhere. Such a confused understanding is not in harmony with the 
bible and therefore should be firmly rejected.



Provided the Earth rotates, then even if the cosmos is geocentric the 
geocentric model merely becomes a special instance of the heliocentric one, 
where one has simply just pushed the sun of centre.



A very good example of this can be found at this web site:



http://jove.geol.niu.edu/faculty/stoddard/JAVA/ptolemy.html



Three models are presented clearly in the java animation:




   Extremely unusual Ptolemiac model where the world revolves.



   Heliocentric model



   Modified Tychonic model





What is not immediately obvious is that all three of the models assume a 
rotating world, therefore all three models are dynamically equivalent.



Key features in the geocentric models are:




   The World completes one revolution on its axis once every 23 hours 56 
minutes, rotating west to east, which is why the stars are seen to rise in the 
east and set in the west in the same time.



   The sun orbits the Earth once every 365.25 days which explains the transit 
of the sun through the ecliptic (the background of stars).



   The moon takes about 28 days to orbit the Earth travelling west to east, 
which is about 50.5 minutes slower than the world rotates in the same direction 
and therefore explains why the moon can be seen to rise in the east and set in 
the west.



   The stars do not move.





No comparison of the heliocentric model to the geocentric ones is necessary 
because only one thing has changed between them. Instead of the sun orbiting 
the Earth once a year the Earth orbits the sun once a year. This is dynamical 
equivalence, but it is not biblical for the Bible stresses that the Earth 
cannot be moved, and therefore does not rotate.



We then derive the conclusion that the universe is both geocentric and 
geostatic, a comparison is now necessary between the aforementioned models and 
the new geostatic and geocentric model.




   The World completes one revolution on its axis once every 23 hours 56 
minutes, rotating west to east, which is why the stars are seen to rise in the 
east and set in the west in the same time.




WRONG



The World stands stationary at the centre of the universe, no motion is 
attributed to the world.




   The sun orbits the Earth once every 365.25 days which explains the transit 
of the sun through the ecliptic (the background of stars).




WRONG

The sun orbits the Earth once every twenty four hours, which explains the days.




   The moon takes about 28 days to orbit the Earth travelling west to east, 
which is about 50.5 minutes slower than the world rotates in the same direction 
and therefore explains why the moon can be seen to rise in the east and set in 
the west.




WRONG

The moon takes about 24 hours 50.5 minutes to orbit the Earth travelling east 
to west which is the opposite direction.




   The stars do not move.





WRONG

The stars orbit the World once every 23 hours 56 minutes east to west.



We can conclude that this is not dynamical equivalence. If then a geostatic and 
geocentric model is physically different from a heliocentric or geocentric 
model where the world does rotate, we should be able to predict discrepancies 
or differences between the two to prove once and for all which model is true.



This has been done and one such example is at:

I urge you all to study the celestial poles argument and tell me what you think.



Yours in Christ,



Steven Jones.
