Look at Polaris. Understand heliocentric theory and then reason.

The Earth's orientation doesn't change that much to observe visible changes in a lifetime. Because its distance is that big we will see no difference in the summer position and winter position. It moving ineed but this motion is again too small to be observed in a lifetime.

  • $\begingroup$ Are you kidding me?...500,000 mph for millennia and no change?...1000 mph "rotation", 67,000 mph "orbit", and 500,000 mph forward travel and Polaris has remained constant with all of that allegedly happening?...stunning, just stunning $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 23, 2021 at 3:12

    $\begingroup$ Polaris does move. Per the Simbad entry, it has an annual parallax of 7.5 milli-arcseconds (due to the Earth's motion about the Sun) and a proper motion of about 46 milli-arcsec per year (dut to the combination of its motion in the Galaxy and the Sun's motion in the Galaxy). $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 23, 2021 at 11:12
  • $\begingroup$ @TerribleAvenger Polaris is about 2,500,000,000,000,000 (2.5 quadrillion) miles away. That's why you can't see it move with the human eye. (But we can see it move with high-precision telescopes.) $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 23, 2021 at 11:17
  • $\begingroup$ So you "geniuses" think that the "galaxy" is moving away from Polaris, for billions of years, while the earth is spinning at 1000 mph, orbiting at 67k mph, traveling at 500k mph and every other star has kept the exact trajectory for thousands of years to appear not to move any?...🤣😂..😳...😂🤣..Y'all ever heard of Dunning-Kruger Syndrome?...There aren't enough Asians in all of Asia to do that math...😂🤣. Dumbest generation ever...Hey, I have this investment. A secret Tesla teleportation stick. Only $999.99 but y'all can have it 50% off...😂🤣🤣😂🤪🤡🤡 $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 23, 2021 at 22:20
