Art, Music & Science

Dave Palm’s latest. Please enjoy some fresh content on Geocentrism Debunked:

Getting on the Wrong Wavelength: More Basic Physics Blunders by the Geocentrists:  Geocentrist leader Robert Sungenis answered our last slate of articles in part by insisting that by “using the parameters of modern science”, “it turns out that the Earth is the heaviest object in the universe, just as Aristotle said.”  His alleged support for this remarkable claim is laid out in more detail in a section of his book, Galileo Was Wrong.  Turning there we find yet again that when Sungenis and his associates try to do actual physics the results are shot through with demonstrable misconceptions, oversights, logical contradictions, and outright math errors.  All of these and more are on display in this section of the geocentric “bible”.  So has “modern science” really found that the Earth is the heaviest object in the universe, or have Sungenis and Co. again gotten the math and physics wrong?  You decide.

Growing by Leaps and Bounds?:  In a recent public email Sungenis claimed that their movement is “going forward by leaps and bounds”.  It’s an interesting statement when viewed in a larger context.  The new geocentrist movement is divisible into two inter-warring factions: geocentrists who believe the Earth is shaped like a sphere, and those who believe the Earth is flat.  The former have preempted the label “geocentrists” while the latter usually refer to themselves as “flat Earthers”.  Mr. Sungenis and his associates are firmly among the former.  But as shown in this article, it is actually the latter who are growing by leaps and bounds.  What’s more, as we see in the companion article, “Flat Earth has Global Appeal while Ball Earth Geocentrism is Flat-lining”, interest in ordinary ball earth geocentrism is pretty much limited to the United States, while Flat Earth geocentrism has appeal around the globe.

General Relativity Leaves No Room for Strict Geocentrism:  The neo-geocentrists continue to insist that, somehow or other, General Relativity “allows for” their own view, strict geocentrism.  They continue to cite a quote from Albert Einstein that supposedly supports this.  But they always leave off the last part of the quote, where Einstein says that General Relativity represents, “a physics in which there would be no place for absolute, but only for relative motion . . . ” (my emphasis).  The neo-geocentrists are found yet again clinging to a dishonest equivocation, “supported” by quotes taken out of context, claiming that General Relativity which categorically excludes the possibility of one, absolute, motionless center of the universe somehow still “allows for” that same view.  It fools some people, it sells some books and DVDs, but it’s intellectually dishonest.

Thus, to be viable, geocentrism has to leave off its parasitic relationship to General Relativity and stand on its own two feet. That it cannot do, as outlined in Why Geocentrism is ‘Junk Science’”.

What Kind of Music Did Abraham Listen To?

by Steve Ray on February 27, 2017

UrMusic.jpgOur next DVD in the Footprints of God series will be entitled “Abraham, Father of Faith & Works.” We will begin filming in Iraq — in Ur of Chaldees — which is the home of Abraham, just south of Baghdad (Gen 11:28-31).

Thanks to the Biblical Archaeology Society to which I subscribe, we can now listen to music that Abraham listened to.

Click here to listen to The Music of Ur, a musical duet featuring a lyre and double pipes such as those found at the ancient city of Ur. Click here to to learn more about these instruments and the music from that time period.

Enjoy! And you can hear this kind of music on our Footprints of God DVD. We follow Abraham from Iraq (yeah, we really went there to film :-) to Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Incredible New Video “From Conception to Birth”

by Steve Ray on February 19, 2017

Make sure everyone sees this because it is a marvelous argument against abortion. This is new technology that won its inventors the Nobel Prize. It pulls back the curtain on the developing baby and the mystery inside the womb. Hang in there for the first three minutes while he is explaining the technology — the remainder of the video is incredible.

For those following the Geocentrism arguments and updates

October 27, 2016

MGeocentricism is the view that the earth is the center of the universe and everything revolves around the earth. This is contrary to everything we know and real science that denies this. Dave Palm has been decisively rebutting Bob Sungenis and his followers who actually believe the whole universe spins around the earth. For four […]

Atheism Rationally Explained :-)

January 12, 2016

ATHEISM: The belief that there was absolutely nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits of random stuff thrown together by chance which then turned into dinosaurs who crawled out of […]

For those following the Geocentrism Debate – I especially enjoyed the one on Pitfalls of Over-literal Interpretation

February 28, 2015

From my friend David Palm who runs the website www.GeocentrismDebunked.com. It almost seems crazy to post blogs debating whether the sun rotates around the earth, or that the earth is the center of the universe with everything revolving around IT. But there are actually people out there with aluminum foil caps with antennas :-)  who […]

Geocentrism Debunked Again and Again and their Movie Bombs (more on that soon)

November 14, 2014

DAVE PALM WRITES: The really exciting thing about this latest update of Geocentrism Debunked (www.geocentrismdebunked.org) is that I didn’t write any of the new material myself.  Others are seeing the problems with the geocentric enterprise and weighing in.  Over four years ago physicist Dr. Tom Bridgman issued the “Lagrange point challenge” in response to geocentrist […]
