Well as much as I admire your passionate take on theology, it's not "earth" that's at the center of the universe, in theology
Can't agree with that. - The universe is the creation, and God exists outside of the creation. Earth is the physical center, and the reason for all the rest that lies beyond it. The physical creation is temporary, and when we transcend the physical, then God will be indeed the center for all of us.

(The beginning of the O'Bummer administration looks a lot like the end of the Nixon administration)
God constantly sustains the universe by His Word and though it is created, He is still the source of it. It does not, and cannot exist apart from Him. Our reality that includes the earth is just a dimension and spiritual reality is a dimension as well. Not everyone is within the latter and furthermore no one knows where the boundaries to the spiritual lie, Jesus said it is within.
The spiritual Jerusalem is the mother of all the spiritual and it comes down from Heaven, intersecting this dimension, as above, so below.
Spiritual man's relationship to God is at the center of where the 2 Jerusalems meet, above and below.
