The Principle Documentary – The Myth of Heliocentrism

  • >The assumption of uniformity has much to be
    said in its (heliocentrism/vast universe theory)
    favor. But we would not expect to find a
    distribution in which the density-increases with
    distance, symmetrically in all directions. Such a
    condition would imply that we oceupy aunique
    position in the universe, analogous, in a sense,
    to the ancient conception of a Central Earth. The
    hypothesis cannot be disproved but it is
    unwelcome and would be accepted only as a
    last resort in order to save the phenomena.
    Therefore, we disregard this possibility and
    consider the alternative, namely, a distribution
    which thins out with distance…the unwelcome
    supposition of a favoured location must be
    avoided at all costs.

    Approach to Cosmology” page 40
