Not only is the basis of the geocentric model
sound, but it is even consistent with our knowledge of the Divine.
It is a wonderful teaching tool to convey understanding of the geocentric model
A confrontation between how things look from a fixed position above the Earth and the view from space (where the Earth revolves around the sun) should help in overcoming the inherent geocentric model
Since the heliocentric model yields the constraint for all combinations of angular planetary velocities and initial planetary angles, whereas the geocentric model
does not, Spearman's Principle (all other things being equal) favours the heliocentric model.
In part one, the reasons for questioning the geocentric model
, traditional Ptolemaic arguments and theological arguments against it, and the general approach to the new argument are presented.
