Geocentrists Convene To Discuss How Galileo Was Wrong

rollcall writes “‘Galileo Was Wrong‘ is an inaugural conference to discuss the ‘detailed and comprehensive treatment of the scientific evidence supporting Geocentrism, the academic belief that the Earth is immobile in the center of the universe.’ The geocentrists argue that ‘Scientific evidence available to us within the last 100 years that was not available during Galileo’s confrontation shows that the [Catholic] Church’s position on the immobility of the Earth is not only scientifically supportable, but it is the most stable model of the universe and the one which best answers all the evidence we see in the cosmos.’ I, like many of you, am scratching my head wondering how people still think this way. Unfortunately, there is still a significant minority of Western people who believe that the Earth is the center of the universe: 18% of Americans, 16% of Germans, and 19% of Britons.”

I hope there is live blogging from the conference.
