Galileo Was Wrong!

Is this really, actually for real?  Geocentrism?  Or, is this something that falls under Poe’s Law?

Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was RightFirst Annual Catholic Conference on Geocentrism, November 6, 2010, in South Bend, Indiana.  It seems pretty serious.  And, as I click around — Holy Christ on a popsicle — I’m finding other links, listed below, to Bible literalists who actually think the Earth does not move.

Click to view the stupidity full size.

To further make my head explode, from the Wikipedia article on Modern Geocentrism:

In a Poll conducted by Gallup in 1999, 18% of Americans said that they believe the Sun orbits the Earth. In two polls conducted in 1996, 16% of Germans,and 19% of Britons responded that they also believe the Sun orbits the Earth.[LINK]

Don’t even mention that 60% of the U.S. population believe in the literal story of Noah’s Ark and the Flood (and lots of other crazy, impossible bullshit).

Not surprisingly, Geocentrism is embraced by most Creationists, who are yet divided among themselves as to the extent of the bat-shit crazy they will swallow.  The apologetics are astounding — the lengths some people will go to avoid contradicting the Holy Babble are awe-inspiring stupidity.

These links are mentioned in the Wiki article, as well as some others.

Heliocentrism is an Atheist Doctrine, Blogs 4 Brownback (U.S. Senator Brownback)

“If [the Earth] moved, we would feel it moving. That’s called empiricism, the experience of the senses.”

Well, DUH!  Wait, huh? The comments after his article are funny, and the author, Sisyphus, answers them like a real smart-ass (like me!) which makes this suspect as satire, but I really think he’s serious.

When you think the stupid can’t burn any more, well, you’d be wrong.

Head hurts now.
