Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and marked off the heavens with a span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance?(Isaiah 40:12) ESV
The first question that people ask when they reject the Geocentrospheric cosmological system is this: they ask “why would a massive sun orbit a less massive Earth?”
It’s a fair question but it reveals that the people who ask it don’t know how the mass values for the Earth and sun are derived. When you ask these people if they know how to calculate the mass of the sun their responses range from misguided to ludicrous. A whole generation believes that the mass of the sun is measured from probes in space, and when you point out that it’s derived from Newton’s law of universal gravitation and Kepler’s third law of planetary motion don’t be surprised when they deride you for being an idiot. That’s how bad the situation in science is these days.
Robert Sungenis, one of the leading Geocentrists of our time, wrote a book on how it’s mathematically possible for a massive sun to orbit a less massive Earth. It’s a wasted effort. Calculating the mass of the sun is a simple mathematical hack which is dependent of your a priori assumption of either heliocentricity or Geocentrosphericity.
The value for the mass of the sun in popular science (SciPop) is 1.9E+30 kg. The math used to derive it is an algebraic formula which expresses the following logic:
How massive would the Sun have to be in order to..– The logic used to calculate the mass of the sun.
.. hold the Earth (of known mass)*
.. in orbit (of known radius and duration)?
There are two problems with this approach:
- We don’t know the mass of the Earth because the value that we use is based on a flawed understanding of gravity, and
- the logic of the calculation requires the assumption of heliocentricity, however, we haven’t proven heliocentricity, it’s a half-truth that comes from Kepler.
If we were to do the same calculation based on assuming Geocentrosphericity then the value that we get for the mass of the sun is a tiny fraction of what SciPop says it is.
How massive is the Sun..– Matty
.. if it’s in orbit (of known radius and duration)
.. of the Earth (of known mass)*?
The factor which relates heliocentric to Geocentrospheric values is known as Matty’s Constant 9.87^-12. The important thing to remember is that the ratio of the masses, their relative proportions, remain the same they’re just switched. The ratio of mass that SciPop says is between Earth and the sun becomes the ratio of mass between the sun and the Earth.
