Experimentation and Heliocentricity

Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

(Isaiah 47:13-14) KJV

The experimental basis for the purported proof of heliocentricity is vast. Fortunately we collected up all of the submissions to our “can you prove heliocentricity?” challenge which began December 25, 2015.

Science Is The New Ignorance

Our up-to-date list of all of the material which is supposedly proof of heliocentricity. It’s not.

Here’s the list of things, phenomena or individuals, that purportedly prove heliocentricity, only they don’t. Not even close. Articles which supposedly prove heliocentricity, or debunk Geocentrosphericity, are generally a hodgepodge of 2-7 of the items below.

  1. Aberration of starlight
  2. Aether drag
  3. Angular size of the sun
  4. Aristarchus
  5. Bessel and 61 Cygni
  6. Bradley and Molyneux
  7. Citing incorrect Geocentric models
  8. Copernicus
  9. Coriolis effect
  10. Doppler and the Voyagers
  11. Eclipses
  12. Foucault pendulum
  13. Gravitational assists
  14. Gravity
  15. Kepler’s Laws
  16. Lorentz’ length contraction
  17. Luminiferous aether
  18. Mass of the sun / Newtonian physics
  19. Moons of Jupiter
  20. Phases of Venus
  21. Procession of the equinoxes
  22. Pulsars
  23. Redshift / Universe expansion
  24. Relativistic reference frames
  25. Retrograde / relative motion
  26. Sagans
  27. Seasons and weather
  28. Spacecraft
  29. Special relativity
  30. Stellar parallax
  31. Stellar spectroscopy
  32. Transit of the ISS during an eclipse
  33. Transit of Venus
  34. Variation in the sun’s orbital radius

None of these purported proofs prove heliocentricity. They’ve been woven into the peer review driven narrative of heliocentricity by using sleight-of-and and the tragically poor state of scientific knowledge of the general populace. Popular science (SciPop) couldn’t exist without ignorance.
