The Catholic Church was not too impressed by a scientific model challenging the religious view of how our ‘universe’ works. Prior to ~1500s this was the accepted model of the Universe from the time of the ancient Greeks. Galileo made many other discoveries throughout his lifetime that were very important to our understanding of physics, but the ones made using his telescope completely revolutionised our understanding of the Solar System. Among other highlights, the Galileo mission is famous for discovering that the Galilean moon Europa is likely to have a salt water ocean under its icy surface.
Many of the ideas behind the geocentric model came from the ancient philosopher Aristotle and ancient astronomer Ptolemy. Various letters were exchanged between theologians, scientists and mathematicians. Both theological and scientific arguments were put by all concerned. Having now discovered arguments by Augustine in De Genesi ad Litteram to support his case, Galileo wrote the Letter to the Grand Duchess which vigorously attacked the followers of Aristotle. Unlike Plato, Aristotle does not see God as the creator of the world, for the world had always existed. Aristotle’s view of the world was based on a spherical Earth round which there were crystalline spheres which carried the Sun, Moon and planets.

Full COLOR BookThis book is like no other book about our modern history. For open minds, it may begin a whole new awakening as to our understanding of who we are, where we came from, and a very profound and powerful re-connection to our common Theocosmology, that has been occulted from most for over 500 years. Nearly all ancient cultures previous to the current Roman Dynasty (310 AD – present) held Flat Earth Theocosmological belief systems. I am not just speaking about one or two civilizations of our common past, but the cultures of most civilizations covering thousands of years, across all lands and races. From the Ancient Chinese, with their Ying/Yang symbolism of the dance of the Sun and Moon in circle above, to the Indian Vedic’s, Buddhists, Sumerians, Chaldeans, Babylonians, Egyptians, Ancient Hebrews, Greeks and Nordic Vikings. That all stars, the Sun and the Moon, were centered around our Earth signified the cosmic importance of humans in the really big picture of our universal make up.

Although the extreme crescent of Venus can be seen using the naked eye, there are no historical recordings of the crescent before Galileo observed them. We now know that the surface of the Moon is cratered by billions of years of meteorite impacts, and is marked by mountains and ancient lava flows. These sketches showed that the lunar surface was rough rather than smooth, full of different areas of dark and light.
