The ‘God Question’ Answered – Part 1 of 3 (Geocentric)

Here are some thoughts on why people come to the conclusion that there must be a God. It is a product of my own deductive reasoning and I certainly invite all informed critique. But be advised, you better do your homework.

We humans have an arrogance that stems from three centricities: geocentric, homocentric, and chronocentric.

Geocentric

Mankind has been the victim of several types of arrogance throughout our short history. For many centuries we believed that the Earth was the center of the universe. The Ptolemaic model of the universe consisted of 7 (the number of perfection and divinity) concentric spheres with the Earth at the center. This was the geocentric view of the world that cost many brilliant men and women their lives at the vile hands of the Christian church. The Christian church held that this was indeed the correct model of the universe and despite evidence, and then proof to the contrary, would not change their view. This ridiculous misconception was believed till the 1840s when Galileo, using a telescope, proved that the Earth could revolve around the Sun and not lose its moon. It’s not that the church refused to look, I could not imagine such blatant ignorance, it is much more likely that the church feared the loss of power and a reduction in cash-flow. For his scientific and open-minded work Galileo was imprisoned for the rest of his life.

  1. 1840s?
    Geocentricity seems to be built in mankind. People living in a Mega city still focus on their own neighborhood, and some people believe that their country and nation is the only nation, with the rest of the world something on the outside, surrounding them, for good or för bad. So of course people explained their world as being the center of its surroundings — they still do.
