The Earth is not Moving, by Marshall Hall, Fair Education Foundation, 1991. What if everything we were taught in school was wrong? Wouldn't that be a hoot? Since things like eclipse predictions and navigation are all based on the assumption of a fixed, non-rotating earth, just suppose that is true. Fred Hoyle, the noted astronomer, said it didn't matter as none of our calculations for space travel are based on what revolves around what and even Einstein's phony baloney Theory of Relativity claimed all motion was relative to the observer. Now that many believe that the speed of light is not a constant, what if the gravitational force is not universal. Let's suppose that real science; that which deals with observation, experimentation, and confirmation, can't be mixed in with conjecture and fantasy. Even if you believe all that you've been told with the big yellow styrofoam sun, the pipe cleaners, and the little styrofoam planets you must certainly have questions as it all defies common sense. Oh well.
