Re: ICANT'S POSITION
Draw a circle on a piece of paper put the numbers of a clock on it. Then take two objects and place one of them on 12. Take the other and make a complete revolution around the one on 12. Then move the one on 12 to the number 1 and repeat the process and continue doing so for each number until you return to 12.

Now if you can you explain to me how you can accomplish this feat without the object that stayed on the numbers making a circle around the object that was orbiting around it I will retract my statement. "The sun does revolve around the earth."

At no point does the object on the clock numbers make a circle around the other object.

To use another analogy, let's say that you have a rock on the end of a string. You start twirling the rock around your body. You now claim that it is actually your body that is going about the rock. Of course, people think you are a bit strange. You then explain that if you spun the rock around your head for 24 hours that the Earth would take you in a circular path which means that your cirlced aroud the rock. Now people think you are really nuts, and for good reason.

Re: ICANT'S POSITION
Since the earth is in the Milkyway wouldn't the sun have to make a circle around it?

No.

If not it seems like the sun is then pushing the earth around the Milkyway.

Both are moving through the gravity well of the galaxy just as the Earth and the Moon are moving through the gravity well of the Sun. The Earth does not pull the Moon about the Sun. Both are caught in the gravity well of the Sun.
