Orbit theory

Post  JodaB. on Sun Mar 17, 2013 12:06 pm


Boom pancakes, found like 4 other quotes from brilliant minds saying the same thing:
Einstein and Infeld, The Evolution of Physics, p. 212 (248 in 1938 ed)):

"The struggle, so violent in the early days of science, between the views of Ptolemy and Copernicus would then be quite meaningless. Either coordinate system could be used with equal justification. The two sentences, 'the sun is at rest and the earth moves,' or 'the sun moves and the earth is at rest,' would simply mean two different conventions concerning two different coordinate systems." Major figures in cosmology, physics, and astronomy (Albert Einstein, Max Born, Stephen Hawking, George Ellis, and Fred Hoyle, among others) are in agreement that there is no scientific way to prove either model over the other, nor any non-philosophical/theological justification for doing so, SPECIFICALLY in the context of General Relativity.
