Re: Atheism By Numbness
The Earth was the Firmament. It did not move! This was fundamentally self-evident to everyone, from King down to pauper.
That may be what people believed, but the geocentric model was a supernatural explanation for the solar system. The entire rationale for how such a thing could work was that God made it that way. And there was easy visible evidence (phases of Venus) that at least one planet did not orbit the earth.
