In his 1881 and 1887 experiments, Albert Michelson discovered the Earth was not moving around the sun. As Michelson himself described the results of his own experiment: “This conclusion directly contradicts the explanation...which presupposes that the Earth moves.”1 But since his colleagues, including Albert Einstein, were die‐hard Copernicans who didn’t want to believe that Michelson had discovered a motionless Earth, they proposed his experimental apparatus was distorted by the Earth’s motion through space and thus Michelson’s apparatus only made it appear as if it wasn’t moving. In scientific parlance, we call this the fallacy of petitio principii, that is, using as proof (a moving Earth) the very thing one is trying to prove (a moving Earth). This book explains it all!
