The second axiom of popular science (SciPop) is Earth orbits the sun. It’s embodied in Copernicus’ 7 assumptions. It’s wishful thinking, just instructions how to imagine the universe from a frame of reference other than the Earth.
Heliocentricity is a major deity in the atheist pantheon assigned to defend this axiom. We need to know why it’s necessary. According to Copernicus the way to imagine heliocentricity is to deny what we can see with our own eyes. We can’t see it, we don’t observe it. This means that heliocentricity is theoretical, not empirical.
Copernicus’ Denial of Empirical Observations
- Whatever motion appears in the firmament arises not from any motion of the firmament, but from the earth’s motion.
- What appears to us as motions of the sun arise not from its motion but from the motion of the earth.
- The apparent retrograde and direct motion of the planets arises not from their motion but from the earth’s.
Basically, even though it looks like the entire universe is rotating around the Earth every day, we have to imagine that the universe isn’t rotating, but Earth is. As subtle a nuance as this may seem it has profound significance. Sight is the opposite of faith. Heliocentricity isn’t observed with sight, it has to be imagined. When you believe in something that you can’t see, you have faith in it and you hope for it.
Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.– Faith, definition
We can add a new twist to the inappropriately named science vs. faith fiasco. In this case it takes faith to believe in the heliocentric model, but there’s no faith required to believe the Geocentrospheric system. Heliocentricity is faith-based. People have faith in it, they hope it’s true.
- Heliocentricity is theoretical,
- it requires faith because it’s not seen (invisible).
- Geocentrosphericity is empirical,
- it requires sight because it’s seen (visible).
We like to say that Copernicus wrote the first ever script for an episode of Star Trek, but if it’s good enough for Star Trek, it’s good enough for SciPop because one is a pseudo-scientific validation of the other through inductive, reductive, circular reasoning. Star Trek determines the conditions necessary to support it’s fake reality, and science falls in line with induced rationalizations of evidence which fit the plot. Not only that, if you’ve seen it in a Star Trek episode then you already believe it when the press releases come out saying that we found it. Slam dunk.
You’re being led to believe that science doesn’t require faith, and this is being done by showing you what the SciPop universe is like through movies and media. You’ve already seen it so it doesn’t require faith. The problem is that what you’re looking at isn’t real.
