Comment 19 by Tyler Durden :

@Tony123, how could an organisation such as "the church" get something as obvious as heliocentrism completely wrong based on the evidence presented to them (but yet opposing their ancient dogma), yet still be trusted as any kind of authority when it comes to complex aspects of cosmology and theoretical physics?

"Creatio ex nihilo" has always been a fundamental part of Church doctrine. On the other hand, and contrary to popular uninformed belief, the immobility of the earth, implicit in geocentrism, was never a part of Church doctrine.
