Relativity shows geocentrism is true (Talk.Origins)
- Relativity states that there is no favored frame of reference, so a geocentric frame is as good as a heliocentric one.
We know that the difference between a heliocentric theory and a geocentric theory is one of relative motion only, and that such a difference has no physical significance. [Hoyle 1975, 416, cited in Willis 2000]
- Willis, Tom, 2000. "The Laws of Cause and Effect, and the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics have been invalidated by modern science", Part 2. CSA News 17(2) (Mar/Apr): 1-2.
Talk Origins entitles this point "relativity shows geocentricity is true", but this is a straw man. Geocentrists don't use the above quote to say "[only] geocentricity is true". They simply use it to point out that geocentricity is as good as heliocentricity to highlight how unfair the scientific community are when they ridicule it as opposed to the helio- or a-centric model of solar system/universe. They acknowledge that the quote does cut both ways.
So a lot of what Talk Origins says to deal with this subject is irrelevant to geocentrists.
