This video discusses how a group of physicists were tricked into believing in geocentrism by a group of geocentrists. The video argues that the geocentrists' worldview is clear from the evidence of the film's rhetorical employment.
00:00:00 This 1-hour documentary "In Search of a Flat Earth" discusses how a documentary about Copernicus and Kepler and Brahe (made in 2014) used animation and Kate Mulgrew's narration to trick a bunch of physicists into believing in geocentrism. Geocentrism, which requires that a universe where a series of incredibly consistent physical principles apply to everything else we can see except us, creates a cascade effect where successively more and more functional predictive science needs to be discarded in order to make the claim work.
00:05:00 The documentary "The Principle" caused a stir among physicists when it was released in spring of 2014 because it argued against the heliocentric model of the solar system. The film's participants include Lawrence Krauss and Kate Mulgrew, both of whom issue public denunciations of their involvement after the film's release. The producers of the film fired back with a YouTube video alleging that the physicists are part of a conspiracy to suppress evidence that the solar system is geocentric.
00:10:00 The video examines the history of conflict between faith and science, discussing the trial of Galileo and the tension between the Copernican principle and faith. It argues that the film "The Principle" is an adept example of a classic form of bad-faith debate, designed to advance the ideological agenda of its creators. The film's creators, including the director and producer of the film, Robert Sungenis, wrote an entire book promoting geocentrism, Galileo Was Wrong. The video argues that the creators' worldview is clear from the evidence of the film's rhetorical employment.
00:15:00 Rick DeLano and Katheryne Thomas produce a documentary about the principle of gravity, which is met with opposition from geocentrists. DeLano is a Catholic fundamentalist and believes in geocentrism wholeheartedly, while Thomas vouches for the film. The film has a successful opening weekend, despite the opposition of a geocentrist boycott.
00:20:00 Robert Sungenis is a TradCath or traditional Catholic thinker who has a fake degree in physics and alternative medicine. He argues that most of the changes made in Vatican II were for the good of the church, but he has problems with some of the more dramatic changes, such as the church eliminating its stance on the responsibility of all Jews for the death of Jesus. He believes that democracy will never work on earth, and that the only way to achieve true liberation is through traditional Catholic values and practices.
00:25:00 The video discusses the work of Robert Sungenis and Martin Selbrede, two prominent geocentrists, and their efforts to promote a geocentric model of the universe. Selbrede has advocated for a return to Biblical law, and the Chalcedon Foundation has been listed as a hate group for its support of anti-gay policies. Selbrede defends his position by claiming that such policies would only be enforced in a systematized form, and that any executions would be insignificant in comparison to the number of homosexuals who would remain in the closet.
00:30:00 The filmmakers of the "That Time Geocentrists Tricked A Bunch of Physicists" video present evidence that suggests that the participants in an interview were not given accurate information about the purpose of the interview, and were instead tricked into supporting a pro-geocentric viewpoint.
00:35:00 The video discusses a conspiracy theory that there is an organized effort among geocentrists to keep physicists from discovering that the Earth is not the center of the universe. It also discusses some of the evidence used to support the geocentrism of the Earth.
00:40:00 The video discusses how ancient people believed in a flat earth with a stationary earth at the center, and how this led to the creation of the church. It argues that this belief is wrong, and that modern scientists should be open to the possibility that there are multiple universes.
00:45:00 In this video, physicists are shown how geocentrists were tricked by Saturn appearing to be straight, but actually being huge because of Titan. Neptune was also shown to be straight, but trans because of Neptune's moon, Uranus. Finally, the sea-Uranus was shown to be the most ace of all because it doesn't understand the question and wishes everyone would just stop asking.
