Podcast #78: Historic and Modern Geocentrism


Geocentrism:
An outdated idea some
Still choose to believe.

A slightly shorter episode, I explore some of the tenets of historic and modern geocentrism. Yes, some people still believe Earth is the center of the universe.

There’s also both a puzzler and Q&A. And to repeat the announcement from last episode:

If you’re going to TAM, I’m planning another li’l get-together, probably Saturday night during dinner time, in a suite in the hotel. Assuming this happens and it’s more than just me and one or two other persons, I’m also going to try to record it and the hope is for it to be sorta a Q&A and/or discussion or something like that about the general topics of the show. You can tell this is incredibly well planned at the moment. IF you’re at all interested, send me an e-mail so I can give you updates.

  1. I suspect you meant to type “tenets”, but tenants works equally well!

  2. I’ve not listened to the whole episode yet, but I’m looking forward to the next issue, now, is it the Disney film or the Asylums that he thinks is a ‘leak’ by those in the know?

    • Disney film. I think Hoagland was just fascinated by John Carter’s heaving, naked torso … but that’s my personal opinion.

      • Just read the Hogland quote on facebook, now if I remember the formula it’s supposed to be 90% (disinfo)/%10 (truth) in the entertainment media. Though I am rather surprised given just how much Hoagland seems to have stolen from H. Beam Piper (God, what I’d give for a good dramatization of Omnilingual…)

  3. From Doubtful news, an Islamic cleric invoking Tycho’s Folly…

    I had seen this story earlier on another site, but given the right-wing nature of the blog owner I’d held off until it was confirmed by another source.

    • Yeah, I saw that but didn’t watch the video. Just too “head-shakey.”
