Business Research – Evidence Does Matter

The Geocentric Model:

Unsubstantiated estimations by ancient civilizations led to the origin of an erroneous conjecture.

The conjecture goes like this: The heavenly bodies, the Sun, the Moon and the stars all revolve around the Earth.

This model, known as The Geocentric Model was popular across several civilizations including that of Aristotle & Ptolemy.

The Ptolemaic System (The Geocentric Model) was well-liked. This was because from the perspective of the earth bound viewer, the Earth appeared to be fixed while the moon and the sun appeared to be in rotation.

The movement of the stars, the heavenly bodies and the moon appeared to be spherical rather than elliptical.

The Heliocentric Model:

It wasn’t until the 16th century that The Heliocentric Model largely attributed to Copernicus emerged.

Copernicus’ model placed the Sun at the center of the solar system and the Earth and other planets in rotation around it.

Kepler was a scientist, who laid down several laws, which are popularly known in Physics as Kepler’s Laws. Kepler established that the path of motion of the heavenly bodies was elliptical rather than spherical. Galileo Galilei further strengthened these observations through the use of the telescope.

Although the notion that the Earth revolves around the Sun had been popularized as long back as 3rd Century BC, nonetheless, Aristarchus, an astronomer and mathematician from ancient Greece (the man who popularized this claim) lacked the evidence to back his claim, therefore, he was unable to establish anything.

Copernicus provided rational scientific conclusions in support of his observations. Kepler established his laws of planetary motion on evidence. And although Aristarchus rightly stated that the Earth revolves around the Sun, still his observations held no water because he could not produce any scientific support for his assertions.
