The Earth revolves around the sun.
Debate Rounds (3)
R2-3 Arguments and rebuttals
R4 no new arguments.
I meant to make the debate four rounds instead of 3, so ignore the structure, new arguments will be allowed in the last round.
Humans first figured out the Earth revolves around the sun in 900 BCE by Yajnavalkya.  Now almost 3,000 years later a good portion of humans don't know that the Earth revolves around the sun.
" the Catholic church forbade Copernicus" book and vehemently tried to suppress all arguments relating to his theory." 
"Galileo compared the Copernican system with the Ptolemaic system, but was subsequently convicted on "grave suspicion of heresy", forced to recant his beliefs, and subsequently spend the rest of his life under house arrest." 
As you can see what I stating in this debate is a grave heresy. On some level I cannot believe Christians aren't up in arms with pitchforks, torches, and assault rifles raiding education buildings for teaching such vile heresy. This is why I am confused brought up Christian. I didn't understand why people would teach Christianity and then tolerate such overt heresy. The conflict has lead to a great amount of cognitive dissonance for me. 
"Cognitive dissonance refers to a situation involving conflicting attitudes, beliefs or behaviors." 
As you can see belief in Christ and belief in the Sun revolves around the Earth are conflicting a person who holds both beliefs will have cognitive dissonance. That has resulting in a some mental pain for me trying to figure out which one is correct.
Here is a scholarly source stating other planets orbit the sun.  "We find that 22% of Sun-like stars harbor Earth-size planets orbiting in their habitable zones. The nearest such planet may be within 12 light-years. "
I find it reasonable to assume that if other planets that are Earth-size are orbiting the sun, that the Earth is orbiting the sun.
Here is another peer reviewed source stating that the Earth is in orbit. 
"The so-called Aten asteroids, evolving on orbits with semimajor axis a0.983 AU, spend most of their time inside Earth's orbit. " 
From these sources I find that the Earth orbits the sun. Thanks for the debate.
The Earth, Jupiter, Pluto, and so on, doesn't revolve around the Sun. In fact everything in our solar system, including the Sun, revolves around something called a Barycenter.  
As you can see from source  it comes straight from NASA. This knowledge is what helps them discover other planets! The second source is simply addition to further solidify the first source.
I do thank you for creating this debate, I would have never thought to look into this had you not created this debate.
"In the planar bicircular restricted four-body problem the Earth and the Moon revolve in circular orbits around
their center of mass, and the Earth-Moon barycenter moves in a circular orbit around the center of mass of the
Sun-Earth-Moon system (Gómez
, 2001)." 
Yes, a barycenter exists. Your answer is more accurate if performing spaceship and satellite launches. Nevertheless, you haven't disproved my notion. The sun makes up over 99% of the mass in the solar system. Therefore, I conclude it is correct, if not completely accurate that the Earth orbits the sun.
Thanks for the debate.
This unequivocally disproves the notion that Earth revolves around the Sun. NASA, the United State's space agency, the only space agency that has landed man on the Moon , explores Mars , sent spacecraft towards all the planets in the solar system , Voyager 1 traversing into interstellar space NASA's spacecraft , the space agency that discovers 1000s of planets  ect.. Says that the Earth doesn't revolve around the Sun. If anyone is qualified to explain and tell how things work in space, it is NASA. As they state it as well as the other site, everything revolves around the barycenter. As NASA explains, it is that fact which helps them spot planets throughout the cosmos.
I believe that I have thoroughly proved that it is NOT the Sun that Earth and the other planets revolves around but the BARYCENTER, that they all, including the sun, revolves around. Again thanks for the debate.

Reasons for voting decision: PRO R2 is in large part a preemptive strawman against Christian anti-science which turns out to be unapplicable. The rest is presenting the seemingly common knowledge notion that the earth revolves around the sun with some sources. However CONs R2 shows that this is just a simplification and the earth actually revolves around the centre of mass of the solar system which is separate from the Sun with the Barycentre stated as being "just outside the Sun's surface" in his first source. PRO's R3 rebuttal is very weak. He quotes an example from a source which talks about a "planar bicircular restricted four-body problem". As the Solar system isn't biplanar and has more than 4 bodies, this seems irrelevant. Furthermore, it just states that the "the Earth-Moon barycenter moves in a circular orbit around the center of mass of the Sun-Earth-Moon system". It never states that the center of mass is the sun.
