If we accept a Geocentrist what's next a flat-earther?

In order to justify his Geocentrism, Mr. Steven's wrote this:

"This is a serious question. You postulate a 'still' sun. That is,
that the sun is not moving. What is your reference point against which
you determine the (lack of) motion of the sun?"

Any question in Mr. Steven's Hit Parade is ripe for brutal debunking, but
this one is especially curious.

Can there be a real life engineer who does not know what 'postulate' means?

To postulate means in this context to assume a set of facts on which to base
further reasoning.

Therefore the Heliocentric model POSTULATES and assumes a still sun at
the center of orbiting planets, etc.

Only if you don't understand this simple concept you'd ask what Mr.
Stevens asked.

"What reference point...?"

It's nuts.

It's like saying, let's assume it's Tuesday and asking, "Roman or Gregorian
calendar?"

That's the guy, folks. And he is baaaaack, for more of the same...

"Mark Sargent is the father of Flat Earth organizing in the United
States. He worked as a software analyst in Boulder for 20 years
before relocating to Seattle, where he sets up Flat Earth meet-ups
through YouTube."

Yet another crank whose principal contact with the real world for much
of his life has been through computers. There can be no hope for him
unless he learns to ride a bicycle. Even then, experience shows that
it is by no means certain that it will cure his intellectual problems.

Wonders shall never cease... a geocentrist mocking a flat-earther. Hilarious.

Get on your tricycle, Stevens.

Looks flat to me? To all intents and purposes it is the centre of the Universe as well. Who fucking cares...
