John C. Wright Couldn’t Be More Wrong Another Armchair Astronomer Tries Unsuccessfully to Discredit Geocentrism
If I had a nickel for every armchair astronomer who has tried to discredit geocentrism I’d be a rich man. It is a special treat when one of them spices-up the attempt with vicious personal attacks. They think they are being so witty, but after doing this for 15 years, I have found that there is a direct proportion between the degree of personal attacks and the lack of knowledge of the critic. Mr. John C. Wright is a perfect example.
On September 26 2016, Mr. Wright took to the blogosphere to weigh in on the debate after someone told him to watch the geocentrism lecture I gave in Dallas last year. As Mr. Wright will reveal later, he was quite disturbed that some “scientific” colleague of his who had seen my lecture was being persuaded toward geocentrism. Wright, believing he had sufficient knowledge of science to refute the lecture, donned his John Wayne hat and grabbed his gun to do battle. We can surmise this characterization of Mr. Wright from the image he chooses to present himself on the internet. (See below). I guess Mr. Wright fancies himself as some kind of vigilante against whatever he believes doesn’t fit into his already-made universe.
