Geocentricity Homepage

Gordon Glover mentions this page in lesson 6 of his outstanding series on teaching science in schools, so I went to see what it is about. This is the tag line:

This site is devoted to the historical relationship between the Bible and astronomy. It assumes that whenever the two are at variance, it is always astronomy—that is, our "reading" of the "Book of Nature," not our reading of the Holy Bible—that is wrong. History bears consistent witness to the truth of that stance.

The individuals passionately believe, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that the earth is located at the center of the universe. Gordon notes, correctly, that the motivation of this group is not to understand how God's creation actually works, but rather to promote the position that because of modern astronomy, man's relationship with God has been "devalued." This is exactly what is going on with evolution. Astounding.
