Suppose that we were thinking of the Sun as something that you absorb, like you are getting Sun. You can say that this Sun that is Received is going around the Earth, even while the Earth is doing the rotating.

I’ll open with my arguments.



C1: The Earth goes around the Sun


The Earth circles the Sun due the gravitational pull of the Sun, which is caused because of the Sun’s mass, which is 300,000 times heavier than Earth.


Forces keeping an object in orbit.


C2: The sunlight never makes it around the earth at once


Even if I play the semantical game Pro gives, at no point does the earth completely absorb the sun. We have day, and we have night. At night, we do not absorb the sun.

Night does not refute what I'm saying,, the Sun still goes around. I'm not saying that the Earth has to have daytime always.

The Sun still goes around’ – what does this mean? You will have to elaborate on this.



“I'm not saying that the Earth has to have daytime always.” – That is precisely what you are saying if you meant to propose that the earth ‘absorbs’ the sunlight all around it at all times; what other explanation do you have?

Pros 'theory' is actually correct. However, Pro used the term 'sun' incorrectly. The correct term should have been 'light'
