Well, we got way off subject when discussing extraterrestrials and I think this subject has to do with Biblical doctrine, so I am posting a new subject to further discuss this interesting theory of an Earth centered universe. Two questions that I never did receive answers for were: 1. I described the boost given to spacecrafts fired to the East due to the Earth's rotation and was told that this was a 'relative' effect because space around the Earth is rotating. --Back to the ole Aether theory. I propose a question: If this is true, where does the space stop rotating, just above the atmosphere and if it is then particles will all be moving in the same direction at a high rate of speed, not necessarily just orbital velocities. If this effect goes to the surface of the Earth then the atmosphere would be carried with it and would circle the Earth every 24 hours. If it goes to the center of the Earth then the Earth itself would be effected. So, where does this rotation of space end in relation to the Earth? The second question is that the rotation of the universe will reach the speed of light in less than one light year and even with theories of space warping theories this is a real stretch. Explain the speed of a star at 200 lightyears away and one 2 lightyears away. How fast would each be moving and how would they stay synchronized since it takes 200 years for light to reach Earth from one and only 2 years for the other?
