Brian Holdsworth on "Fact Checking"
7th Jan. 2022 | Brian Holdsworth
One comment by me:
7:35 c. I am reminded of a Catholic religious I know, who was very sure, we could by now be sure of heliocentrism being true, bc the instruments are so much better.
Hubble and all the rest are in fact providing with few exceptions either geocentric or near geocentric observations.
Heliocentrism comes from an argument, and improving the instruments doesn't change the arguments. Not per se, automatically, everytime, and arguably not this time.
If the argument is bad - as I think it is - heliocentrism remains a lousy argument, however many good (and immediately geocentric) instruments you bolster it with.
