Talk:Nicolaus Copernicus

Return to "Nicolaus Copernicus" page.

Copernican Revolution

AmesG, you removed a perfectly good sentence, and inserted a misleading one. Tycho's model had its advantages, but it didn't really solve the inconsistencies of the earlier models. Yes, later models were better, but that's obvious. What was wrong with the sentence before: "Many of the ancient Greek arguments for and against heliocentrism remained unresolved."?

Get a cite and let's investigate it.-AmesGyo! 19:55, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
I put in a cite, and you still edited it to a "compromise". The statement is correct. Please quit changing it, unless you can back up the change on the Talk page. RSchlafly 13:26, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

What Copernicus would have wanted?

have taken "but this would hardly have been espoused by Copernicus" out, as it is uncited so impossible to tell what Copernicus would have wanted.--Pdunc 10:57, 8 May 2009 (EDT)

OK, I agree the sentence was not cited. I took it to mean that since Copernicus was a Christian, he would still have had an earth-centric view of the universe even though he realised that the earth wasn't the physical centre of the solar system. I think that's probably true, but in the absence of a citation I won't reinsert it.--CPalmer 11:21, 8 May 2009 (EDT)

If the subject here is what Copernicus said, allegedly or otherwise, go to the library and check out "On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres" by him. You'll find it in volume 15 of Britannica's "Great Books of the Western World". Karajou 11:30, 8 May 2009 (EDT)

Modern scientific concensus

The modern scientific concensus has REJECTED the views of the Catholic church and does not say that heliocentric and geocentric frames of reference are equally valid. Therefore this statement is false and should come out.--HaroldT 12:58, 11 October 2011 (EDT)

You want to help out the project, "Harold", you're going to apologize to ASchlafly FIRST for your past behavior. Karajou 13:03, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
