Aristarchus of Samos (3rd century B.C.) believed that the earth revolves around the sun. Philolaus the Pythagorean (c. 470-390 B.C.) made the earth a planet and said that the earth orbits the central fire.
According to the Bible, Joshua made the sun stand still (Joshua 10.12-14, quoting from the lost Book of Jashar). Obviously the Copernican theory is wrong, because it conflicts with the Scriptures.
