Before you deride geocentrism you should know that it's an established theory with as many followers in the scientific community as those who deny the myth of climate change, and is almost at the number of scientists who believe in creationism and alchemy. It's a hell of a good theory and one that I'd be proud to teach my children if the stork ever brought any to me.
