The North Star Proves the Earth Does Not Move

Below is an excerpt from The Sphere of Influence by Edward Hendrie.


In Romans 10:9-11:10 God explains how he uses his living word to give spiritual life to his elect. God’s creation, revealed in his word, is every bit part of his gospel. The word gospel literally means God spell (God’s word). God has made the point in the Holy Bible that every word of God is essential. “And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” (Luke 4:4) That brings us to an important point that preachers today overlook. God has revealed his invisible spiritual truths through the creation of the world. Man is without excuse. What may be known of God is manifest in God’s creation.

[T]hat which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:19-20)

The biblical account of creation is critical because it is through God’s creation that he reveals his glory and handiwork. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” (Psalms 19:1)

God called the firmament, Heaven. Genesis 1:8. The heavens declare the glory of God. The firmament contains the stars and shows God’s glory and handiwork. Psalm 19:1. Part and parcel of God’s glory and handiwork is that the stars travel in a fixed formation around the North Star (Polaris). That is because God ordained the moon and the stars to rule the night. Psalms 136:9. The stars were placed in the firmament by God for “signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.” Genesis 1:14. Indeed, “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” (Psalms 147:4)

That fixed path of travel, where the stars circle the North Star, as can be seen everywhere in the northern latitudes, proves that the earth cannot be a rotating globe. That is because if the earth were a rotating globe then the only place where the stars could be seen to travel in a circular path around the North Star would be at the North Pole. Everywhere else on a supposed spinning globe below the North Pole would require that the stars travel in a westerly direction because the earth is supposed to be spinning in an easterly direction.

Since under the heliocentric model the earth is supposed to be spinning in an easterly direction, a viewer who is looking at the North Star would necessarily see all of the other stars traveling in a westerly direction across the sky. There is no possible way that the stars could be seen by an observer on earth traveling in a circular path around the North Star because that would require the stars to both travel in an easterly direction and a westerly direction as they circle the North Star. But when looking at time-lapse photographs of the stars circling the North Star, we see stars traveling in a circular path around the North Star, with some stars moving in a westerly direction while at the same time other stars are traveling in an easterly direction. Such an occurrence in an impossibility under the heliocentric model.

A picture is worth a thousand words. A time-lapse picture is worth a million words. Below is an 11.5-hour time-lapse photograph taken on the night of January 2-3, 2010, from Tradate, Italy, which is at 45.7̊ North Latitude, more than 3,000 miles south of the North Pole, and approximately equidistant between the North Pole and the Equator. The picture proves that it is the stars moving over the earth, and not the earth that is spinning. The fact that the stars under the North Star are traveling in an easterly direction while at the same time the stars above the North Star are traveling in a westerly direction proves that the earth cannot be spinning.

If the earth were spinning, a person looking at the North star from 45.7̊ North Latitude would see all of the stars traveling in an arc across the sky in a westerly direction. If the earth were a spinning globe, the stars could not travel in opposite directions, as we can see is happening in the time-lapse photograph. The picture below impeaches the heliocentric myth. If one is standing anywhere not on the axis of a globe, stars cannot appear to travel across the sky in one direction and other stars appear to move in the opposite direction if the star movement is based upon the fact that the earth is supposed to be spinning on an axis in one direction. It is impossible. The time-lapse picture below proves that the heliocentric model is an elaborate deception.

Please note that, while the stars appear to completely circle the North Star, in fact, each star is only traveling in an arc that is approximately 180̊. The time-lapse makes it appear that the stars are going in a complete circle around the North Star. But it only appears that way because there are so many stars. No single star has traveled more than 180̊ during the 11.5-hour time-lapse period.

If the earth were a sphere spinning eastward, the heliocentric model would require a time-lapse picture of the North Star to be in a fixed position in the sky in perfect synchronization with the spin of the earth. That is because the North Star is fixed above the North Pole, which is supposed to be the axis of the earth’s spin. Thus, the heliocentric model requires that at all latitudes south of the North Pole the North Star would remain fixed in position over every location on the allegedly spinning earth. That means that the North Star would appear to the camera not to be moving. That is in fact what we see in time-lapse pictures. So-far-so-good for the heliocentric model.

The fly in the ointment for the heliocentric model is that if the earth were in fact spinning, the other stars in a time-lapse picture taken south of the North Pole would create star trail arcs that would appear to be moving across the sky only in a direction opposite the spin of the earth. But that is not what we see. Instead, in actual time-lapse pictures of the North Star, the other stars leave circular star trails around the stationary North Star. That means that some of the stars are traveling in the same direction as the supposed spin of the earth. That is impossible under the heliocentric model. If the earth were spinning, there would be no way for any stars to leave star trails going in the same direction as the spin of the earth. The diagram below illustrates what the star trails in a time-lapse picture taken by a camera south of the North Pole pointed at the North Star should look like if the earth were a spinning globe.

The ubiquitous time-lapse photographs taken south of the North Pole showing star trails circling the North Star are proof that the earth is not spinning underneath the stars but rather that those stars are circling the North Star over a stationary earth.

Every scientific experiment ever conducted has confirmed what the above time-lapse picture shows, that the earth is stationary and the stars move over the earth. George Airy in 1871 conducted the most notable experiment that proved that the stars move over a stationary earth. Airy’s experiment is popularly known in the scientific community as “Airy’s failure” because his experiment proved that the earth does not move, which was the opposite of the expected outcome. George Airy’s experiment determined with scientific certainty that in fact, it was the ether carrying the stars that was moving over the earth and that the earth was stationary. Dr. Neville Thomas Jones, Ph.D., explains that “George Airy proved that the world was stationary and the stars are moving.”

Airy’s failure was followed in 1887 by the precise and irrefutable experiment conducted by physicist Albert A. Michelson (1852 – 1931) and chemist E. W. Morley (1838 – 1923). The Michelson/Morley experiment, using an interferometer, which measured light rays, established that the earth is stationary. That experiment so shook the scientific community (imbued with heliocentricity) that it was forced to change the laws of physics to explain it away. The new laws of physics were nurtured within the umbra of the theory of relativity. The rise of Albert Einstein and his theory of relativity are explained in detail in this author’s book, The Greatest Lie on Earth (Expanded Edition).

  1. Sent to you via email evening of 3/20/22 first day of spring.

    Ed,

    I have done the following:

    In a window that faces north I have a clear view of the northern sky at night. Finding the north star (Polaris), I stand at the window and draw a two inch circle on the glass around the north star. No matter what time of night or early morning, if I stand at the same spot looking at the two inch circle the north star is always in the center. Be it 9pm or 5am, be it Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, be it 2022 B.C. or 2022 A.D. the north star is centered. In your rational thinking mind would this be convincing evidence that our earth is not a spinning sphere?

    Your Thoughts?

    Dennis

    On 3/21/22 you directed me to your explanation of North Star proves the earth does not move. This I agree with.
    We have all been brainwashed since childhood. Breaking free is wonderful.

  2. Granted, the stationary earth truth is a good first step in moving someone into the Flat Earth truth. And to me, one of the stronger Flat Earth proofs is the airline flights from New Zealand to Chile. Per the “Globe” model, it should be a direct flight of about 8-9 hours. But instead it is never a direct flight, and is with a stop at LAX or there about, and last from 14 to 18 hours. On the Flat Earth map, it is close to a straight line, but on the Globe, the diversion to LAX makes no sense. Hence, the airlines know the earth is flat, and many pilots have said so.

    • Really enjoyed this article. One very important point made was, “No single star has traveled more than 180̊ during the 11.5-hour time-lapse period.” I had always thought that we were looking at a complete 360 degree star trail rotation. Does anybody know if there is a central star in the southern in the southern latitudes?, and why isn’t the north star visible?

  3. After watching a sunset from the east crater rim of Mauna Loa with a view to the ocean horizon, that started in the east and moved to the west, I’m totally convinced that the earth is rotating.

    • You only believe the earth is a spinning globe because that is what you have been taught to believe. It’s called brainwashing.

      The most universally accepted scientific belief today is that the earth is a globe, spinning on its axis at a speed of approximately 1,000 miles per hour at the equator, while at the same time it is orbiting the sun at approximately 66,600 miles per hour. All of this is happening as the sun, in turn, is supposed to be hurtling through the Milky Way galaxy at approximately 500,000 miles per hour. The Milky Way galaxy, itself, is alleged to be racing through space at a speed ranging from 300,000 to 1,340,000 miles per hour. What most people are not told is that the purported spinning, orbiting, and speeding through space has never been proven. In fact, every scientific experiment that has ever been performed to determine the motion of the earth has proven that the earth is stationary. Yet, textbooks ignore the scientific proof that contradicts the myth of a spinning and orbiting globe. Christian schools have been hoodwinked into teaching heliocentrism, despite the clear teaching in the bible that the earth is not a sphere and does not move.

      Many attempts were made to prove that heliocentricity was true and geocentricity was false. Every such attempt has been a failure. The most famous, because of its precision and irrefutability, was the experiment done by physicist Albert A. Michelson (1852 – 1931) and chemist E. W. Morley (1838 – 1923). The Michelson/Morley experiment, using an interferometer, which measured light rays, established that the earth is stationary. Michelson was involved in other experiments that confirmed, to his dismay, that the earth is stationary.

      The Michelson/Morley experiment (1887) does not stand alone. It is joined in its confirmation of a stationary earth by the James Bradley experiment (1729) (proving that the ether is not carried along by the earth), the Sagnac experiment (1913) (proving that there is in fact an ether), the Michelson/Gale experiment (1925) (proving that the ether passes over the earth once every 24 hours), and Airy’s failure (1871) (proving that the stars move, carried by the ether, while the earth remains stationary).

      There are many other experiments that have each time given results that were not only consistent with a stationary earth but indicative of a stationary earth, from the light polarization experiments of E. Muscart in 1872 to the mutual inductance experiments of Theodore de Coudres in 1889 to the 1903 Touton-Noble experiments. Indeed, there is not a single experiment that proves that the earth moves. The moving earth is based entirely on a theory and is contradicted by all of the experimental evidence.

  4. Stars will not seem to move relative to our orbit around the sun because they are so far away, so that argument that there would be some change in star locations throughoit the year is false. Star rotate around Polaris in the opposite of Earth’s rotation, so at the North Pole, where we can see stars in all of the cardinal directions, it’s not “toward the west” It’s around Polaris. At the opposite season, when the pole is facing away from Polaris at night, the stars circle around whatever is at the “center” pole position in the that sky. Stars rotate to the west from all points on the surface, even the poles because the earth is tilted 23 degrees. At the Poles, where one can look in all directions, the stars simply rotate in the opposite of Earth’s rotation.

    What do you think causes the time-lapse phots to show movement if the earth isn’t moving? Remember, we all know that parallax does not show star movement with Earth’s orbit. Only rotation causes this. So what is your answer?

    • Dave Hart, you stated: “At the Poles, where one can look in all directions, the stars simply rotate in the opposite of Earth’s rotation.” But you missed the fact that the time-lapse picture depicted in the article was not taken from the North Pole. The blog article clearly states that the picture was taken “on the night of January 2-3, 2010, from Tradate, Italy, which is at 45.7̊ North Latitude, more than 3,000 miles south of the North Pole, and approximately equidistant between the North Pole and the Equator.”

      You do not understand the point of the article. “If one is standing anywhere not on the axis of a globe, stars cannot appear to travel across the sky in one direction and other stars appear to move in the opposite direction if the star movement is based upon the fact that the earth is supposed to be spinning on an axis in one direction.”

      Please reread the article and address the proofs presented.

  5. I would like to see somebody do a simulacrum with a little camera on a globe with fixed stars above and to see what that pattern would look like. I’m having a very hard time with the explanation that the photographs we see of the stars apparently circling around the north star from any position on the globe could only be done on a flat earth. I need to see a more coherent graphic of what the star motion from a Time-lapse photograph would look like at the equator and also from Italy. What would that pattern look like exactly, that’s my question. All it would take is an iPhone stuck to a 16 inch globe and with a Time-lapse of the earth spinning for 12 hours and what would be the movement of the stars. I say “all it would take“ but that would be quite a set up. Perhaps somebody with 3-D computer savvy could make a simulacrum.

  6. I actually have a proof that I haven’t seen published anywhere. I did not see it in any of Mr. Hendrie’s books, so feel free to use it in your next edition, if it makes sense. It goes like this.

    Imagine you are in outer space and you were looking at the earth going around the sun over the Course of the year. Let’s say on the far left you have the earth till today at 23° pointing away from the sun. This would be northern hemisphere winter time. And then you have the opposite on the far right, where the sun is blazing on the northern hemisphere.

    At midnight on the left-hand side you would only be able to see the stars to the left. And on the right hand side and summertime, he would only be able to see the star constellations on the right. By definition, every six months one should see a completely different night sky. And yet what do we see in reality? The north pole from anywhere and I believe Orion was there when I was in Brazil. I did see the Southern Cross but maybe somebody can explain that to me. Just by definition, and one could easily make a graphic of the earth in the four seasonal positions rotating around the sun, and it would be obvious to anyone that at midnight or 2 o’clock in the morning, The nighttime sky would be completely different every six months. Somebody tell me that I’m wrong.
