Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.(Job 9:9) KJV
Biblical cosmology is Geocentrospheric but it’s not a problem because it’s an empirical observation. Christians who combine the Bible with heliocentricity are in for a bumpy ride.

The Stars Will Fall to Earth
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.(Genesis 1:16) KJV
It’s ironic that April 1st is April Fools’ Day and that today we’ll begin making the case that the cosmos is Geocentrospheric, but this isn’t a joke. We’re going use the Bible to understand empirical observations.

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.(Isaiah 47:13) KJV
Copernicus taught us how to imagine an alternative reality. He wrote the first episode of Star Trek. Galileo, Kepler, Newton and others convinced the modern mind that their imaginary alternative is reality.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.(Hebrews 11:3) KJV
We all have exactly the same evidence.– Matty’s Razor
Our choice of paradigm determines what we believe it’s evidence of.
We show that the words faith and theory are synonyms. Sight and empirical are also synonyms. Empirical evidence is what we see. What we choose to believe about it is our faith.
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;( Hebrews 1:3 ) KJV
It’s not possible to prove that the earth is rotating. Experimental results which have formerly been used as a way to prove that the earth has daily rotation are examples of Gravitational Drag Effect.
I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.(Jonah 2:6) KJV
