Bible proves Earth is center of universe, author argues The Earth is at the center of Robert Sungenis' universe. Literally.
Yours too, he says.
Sungenis is a geocentrist. He contends the sun orbits the Earth instead of vice versa. He says physics and the Bible show that the vastness of space revolves around us; that we're at the center of everything, on a planet that does not rotate.
He has just completed a 1,000-page tome, "Galileo Was Wrong," the first in a pair of books he hopes will persuade readers to "give Scripture its due place, and show that science is not all it's cracked up to be."
For several years the Web site of his Catholic Apologetics International (www.catholicintl.com) offered a $1,000 reward to anyone who could disprove geocentrism and prove heliocentrism (a sun-centered solar system).
There were numerous attempts, Sungenis said, "some serious, some caustic," but no one did it to his satisfaction. "Most admitted it can't be proven." There's also no proof that the Earth rotates, he said. But what about Foucault's famous pendulum? Its plane of oscillation revolves every 24 hours, showing the rotation of the planet. If the Earth didn't rotate, it wouldn't oscillate.
Nope, Sungenis said: There just may be some other force propelling it, such as the pull of stars.

' Or, as Galileo famously quoted 16th century Cardinal Caesar Baronius, "The Bible was written to show us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go." '
This should be funny, I'll have to download and read his deep scientific(sic) argument.

The Earth is hollow!!!!!!!!!!!
I read it on the Internet therefore it must be true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Bible says so too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..........
Isa 40:22 "It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in."
.......and we all know that the Bible is the literal Word of God!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lets all get together and get this into our Godless Public School System as a viable alternative to what the Godless Geologists profess!!!!!!!!
Who's with me?
And now a word from the illustrious founder of the Hollow Earth Society:
Of course it could be a satire, like FSM and ID.
I think some of those people are Freepers.
I wonder what this guy's FR screen name is?
Unfortunately for us, crazy people are present on FreeRepublic and continually post Creationist/ID Threads.
That verse does not say that the earth is hollow.
But it's a whole lot easier if you drop you frame of reference on the center of mass of whatever you're trying to model.
Author soon to be announced as a featured contributor to EconomyInCrisis.org.
Sungenis is a brilliant man in some respects, but he has turned himself into a laughing stock in this respect.
I liked him when he was a mainstream Catholic apologist in his EWTN days, but this makes everything else he believes in seem silly even if he makes good points about undisputed core Catholic teachings.
Tell that to people who have to align inertial navigation systems. They actually depend on the earth's rotation to find North and East.
Ahh, come on, Sungenis, if you're gonna be a kook, why not go for the whole enchilada?
Interesting theory, but imprecise. "We're" not at the center of everything. I am at the center of everything. I call it my Karlcentric
theory absolute truth.
Do you feel dizzy? If so, that's because I just made the whole universe spin around me and my chair seat. Weeeee!
