The belief that the Earth is
rotating on an "axis" and orbiting the sun is
THE GRANDADDY OF ALL DECEPTIONS IN THE WORLD TODAY...
Launched from its modern founder's deathbed in
1543, the Copernican Revolution ushered in a movement that has totally
reshaped and re-directed ALL of man's knowledge (HERE)..
The Christian Bible (and the Koran!) declare the earth to be motionless.
The mathematical Copernican model says the earth rotates on an
"axis" (at over 1000 MPH) orbits the sun (at 30 times rifle
bullet speed), and is whooshing around a galaxy (at 250 times rifle
bullet speed) .....all at the same time.
Over the centuries, superstars in the physical sciences established the
Copernican model as an unchallenged fact. This success paved the way for
conquest of the biological sciences (Darwin et al). This transvaluation
of values and philosophy (Nietzsche et al) then quickly spread to the
social and behavioral sciences (Marx, Freud et al), to mathematics
(Einstein et al), the Arts (Picasso et al), Education (Dewey et al), and
so on through today's media reinforcement of all of the above. ..As
the 21st Century gets its feet wet, man's "knowledge" is almost
totally secularized and the Bible all but ignored as the source of
absolute Truth from God Himself. ..The
"sciences" reign supreme, and they do so because of the
victory of Copernicanism over the Bible's motionless earth.
