You are missing the point here.

Come back after you've studied physics and spacetime.

And Galileo was wrong. Kepler was more right. Galileo stuck to ancient works foolishly and disregarded observation and science.

Wow!  This is neat!  Heliocentrism is out!  Geocentrism is back in!  Marvelous!

And scientists wouldn't put it that way. Just study modern physics and you'll see.

And drop assumptions about what I meant. I am not saying that ancient ideas are true. I am pointing out the big picture based on modern science.

The "centrism" part of both is false. What is the centre?

That is the key.

You do not understand and I am not going to instruct you.
