For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.(2 Corinthians 10:4-6) ESV
The Geocentrospheric cosmological model in Matty’s Paradigm is a) empirical (directly observable) and b) meets the requirements of Kepler’s laws. The heliocentric theory is neither a) nor b).
The heliocentric theory is a bastion of popular science (SciPop). It doesn’t matter if you’re talking to an atheist or a Christian as soon as you mention that you believe that the sun orbits the Earth they’re going to dismiss you as an idiot who’s so intellectually challenged that you’re really not worth wasting time on.
It’s fair to say that heliocentricity is a stronghold. That means that we have a Biblical precedent to pull it down. We can attack it in a variety of ways because the entire SciPop narrative is a rationalization of why we should believe something which isn’t true.

We’ve already covered Galileo so we’ll start to unpick the work that Kepler did in using an empirical mathematical formula to tell a half-truth. Kepler’s laws are empirical, that means that they’re confirmed by direct observation. Kepler proved that the sun is at one focus of elliptical planetary orbits. Ellipses require two foci. Kepler observed the planetary system his laws describe orbiting the Earth every day. However, Kepler wasn’t able to identify the second focus in his laws. He was standing on it.
Elliptical planetary orbits have 2 foci, that means that two sources of gravity are required. This is resolved in the Geocentrospheric model: Earth is f1, the sun is f2.
