Heliocentrism 101; Selling the Great Lie for 5 Centuries

This is a good primer for those who lack basic understanding of the Great Lies that have indoctrinated into all.  Note how they depict Ancient Man as being stupid and lacking knowledge of the Cosmos, when temples and pyramids, still standing today some 5,000 years later, show a very sophisticated understanding of the many realms and dimensions of our existence.  And we are not even close to understanding how they built these monuments today with all our “sophisticated” technology advancements.

These 8 simple diagrams show how incredibly far astronomy has come

We’ve been reading the fantastic book “Seven Brief Lessons on Physics” by Carlo Rovelli. One of many highlights is a series of images he includes on the history of astronomy.

Check them out below, with permission from Riverhead Books, along with our own brief commentary.

For millennia people thought there was only Earth and sky:

Twenty-six centuries ago, Anaximander figured out that there’s space on all sides:

Other Ancient Greeks concluded that the earth was a sphere, with celestial objects orbiting it:

Then Copernicus figured out that Earth orbited the sun:

Then we realized our solar system was just one of one hundred billion in our galaxy:

Then we figured out that our galaxy is just one of one hundred billion galaxies. Here’s a photo from Hubble showing a bunch of them:

Then Einstein and others figured out that space is curved. Writes Rovelli: “We have to imagine the texture of the universe, with its splashes of galaxies, being moved by waves similar to those of the sea, sometimes so agitated as to create the gaps that are black holes.”

So it’s really more like this:

“And finally,” writes Rovelli, “we now know that this immense, elastic cosmos, studded with galaxies and fifteen billion years in the making, emerged from an extremely hot and dense small cloud.” In one image, it looks like this:
