A Geocentricity Primer and The Geocentric Bible
A Geocentricity Primer and The Geocentric Bible Author:Gerardus D. Bouw Four hundred yeaers ago there raged a debate among the learned men of Europe about whether or not the earth orbits the sun. Until then, it was commonly accepted that the sun, moon, stars and planets were embedded in crystalline spheres centered on the earth.

When geocentrism was finally defeated, humanists heralded the victory as signifying the defeat of the Bible and, consequently, the death of Christianity as a reasonable faith. In the last half of the twentieth century, geocentrism resurfaced in a new, technical form called geocentricity.

At issue is the inerrancy and preservation of the Scripture, especially in the light of the pronouncements of science. At stake is the authority of the Bible in all realms, starting in the realm of science.

Or is there something to geocentricity after all? And what does it have to do with Mach's Principle, which makes geocentricity as plausible as any other center? Such questions constitute the substance of this book. But until all the issues are aired out in the open, geocentrists will just have to stick to Acts 24:14:
But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which
they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers,
believing all things which are written in the law and in
