[geocentrism] Re: Hello, group.

Cheryl,

Lord knows I'm not an expert but I will contribute this much.  I don't know
of anybody who believes the strict "geocentric" definition as put forward by
Dr. Jones.  That is the one where the earth is spinning, and the sun
revolves around the earth counter-clockwise, but obviously not as fast, in
the angular velocity factor, as the earth is turning.  So this option you
can just ignore, IMHO.   Your Bad Astronomers are "heliocentrists" (or
"acentrists" if you prefer) and would say the earth rotates and revolves
around the sun just as do the other planets we can observe.

We "geostatists" naturally feel that the Bible correctly states the truth
when it says the earth is immovable.  What this means is simply that the
earth is indeed perfectly still in the most "preferred frame of reference"
(to borrow the Einsteinian lingo) and that the sun, moon, stars, and
everything else we see in the heavens is revolving daily around the earth in
a clockwise direction (for the most part), just as they appear to be doing
to us here on earth.

Biblically, the earth is a special place because it is mentioned directly in
Genesis 1:1.  You will note there that God didn't tell us "In the beginning
God created the heaven and Halley's Comet."  Or "Jupiter", or "Mars",
"Venus", or even "the sun".  He told us "the heaven and the earth".  So in
my mind that puts us in a special place right off the bat.  Also, Genesis
1:14-17 speak of the reasons all of the heavenly bodies were created.  Those
would be, you may remember, for "signs, seasons, days, years, and to give
light upon the earth".  I've said this a few times before on this forum but
it is perfectly clear that all of those reasons are reasons FOR THE EARTH.
So that, logically, if the earth were not here, then neither would all the
heavenly bodies.  As I said, it is a most "preferred frame of reference"....
And that is what gets us in trouble with all the acentric atheistic
Einsteinians.  Because, of course, they would say there can be no such thing
in reality.  All places, when looking out from that place, will appear to
each be in the CENTER OF ALL; it's the cosmological principle.

If you are following the geostatic view, then you understand that everything
revolves around the earth clockwise daily, including the sun and moon.  Your
question about the 28 days concerns the moon's revolution about the earth in
the h-system.  Keep in mind the h-view of the moon has it orbiting the earth
counter-cwise in around the 28 days.  This speed is essential to accurately
account for the observed phases of the moon that we see on earth.

Our view of the moon is that it orbits clockwise daily and that the moon's
phases are explained by the difference in angular velocity between the
slower moon and the faster sun, which both are orbiting the earth clockwise
daily.  As for the sun the h-view has the earth orbiting it in 365 days with
a tilted axis to explain the seasons.  The geostatic view has the untilted
earth being orbited by the sun in what Richard Elmendorf described as a
"double helix" pattern.  This also explains the seasons.

Remember again, that if you are on the moon watching the earth, you are
moving as well as the earth you are watching, and in the final analysis, you
can't say whether it is you or the object of your eye (the earth) is moving.
Sounds rather Zen-like, doesn't it?

I hope that is of help.  I'm no expert so take everything I say with a grain
of salt always. The truth comes with repeated dives into the field of
knowledge, not just one quick dip.

Sincerely,

Gary Shelton
