Big Geocentrism Documentary Coming Soon

Thanks to a tip from one of our clandestine operatives — code name Big Red — we learned of a new geocentric documentary named “The Principle.”

The most striking thing about it is that it’s narrated by Actress Kate Mulgrew, known for her role as Capt. Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager. A two-minute promotional trailer is above. It’s rather chaotic.

You can read about the thing in the UK’s Daily Mail right here: Star Trek star voices crackpot TV documentary arguing that sun revolves around the Earth. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:

She played a starship captain exploring the outer reaches of the universe in the 24th century, but now she’s working on a film promoting science that was out of date almost 500 years ago.


‘Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong,’ Mulgrew’s voice argues over cosmic images in the trailer for ‘The Principle.’

What’s the problem? She played the role of a starship captain, so she must know what she’s talking about. Here’s more:

The film, set for release this spring, was partially backed by a well known anti-Semitic and far-right conservative, Robert Sungenis, who runs a blog called ‘Galileo Was Wrong.’

Wikipedia has an article about him: Robert Sungenis. We won’t link to his website, but if you really want to visit the thing, there’s a link in the Daily Mail. Let’s read on:

Sungenis himself appears in the trailer to offer some of his conspiracy theory. ‘You can go on some websites of NASA to see that they’ve started to take down stuff that might hint to a geocentric universe,’ he tells the audience.

Yeah, you can visit the NASA website and if you don’t see any geocentric material, that’s evidence that they’ve removed it.

We don’t need to say anything else. The evidence is clear — the scientists are lying to us.

  1. Hmm. I wonder who’s going to pick this up & run it? Twenty years ago, I would have thought Fox network, since they ran the moon-landing denialist trash, but I don’t think so now. Perhaps a religious cable network, but I think even they would know better. It would be too much of a risk for their credibility — it appears to have so much that would be easy to prove is false.

    Maybe it will go away quietly. That “NASA taking down stuff” is hilarious.

    Geocentric universe? I don’t give a [edited out]’s [edited out] fat [edited out] about what shape the universe wants to take on in the future. Now that Windows XP has been thrown off the planet, what is there left to believe in and live a moral life for anyway?

  3. Ceteris Paribus moans: “Now that Windows XP has been thrown off the planet, what is there left to believe in and live a moral life for anyway?”

    The final update is available. Get it now.

  4. Holding the Line in Florida

    The “hysterical” Chanel of course. Fits right in with ancient aliens

  5. Ceteris Paribus

    SC encourages: “The final update is available. Get it now.”

    Well, OK I did. Went and downloaded three of them, one right after another. But now I feel so cheap, and used. Probably by tomorrow morning I will be standing in line at the local blood plasma center.

  6. @Ceteris Paribus: Abandon Microsoft. Get an Apple MacBook. Concentrate on what you’re creating, not the machine you’re creating it on.

  7. Ceteris Paribus

    @retiredsciguy Creationism? Can’t I will just wait until my Microsoft evolves into Apple?

    Hey, if MacBooks evolved from PCs, then why are there still PCs? Wait, wait, I already know the answer: Micro evolution is OK, but Macro evolution is against the laws of The Creator.

  8. FWIW, Kate Mulgrew claims, on her Facebook page, that she was duped into participating in this absurd film:

    “I understand there has been some controversy about my participation in a documentary called THE PRINCIPLE. Let me assure everyone that I completely agree with the eminent physicist Lawrence Krauss, who was himself misrepresented in the film, and who has written a succinct rebuttal in SLATE. I am not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism. More importantly, I do not subscribe to anything Robert Sungenis has written regarding science and history and, had I known of his involvement, would most certainly have avoided this documentary. I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at that. I apologize for any confusion that my voice on this trailer may have caused. Kate Mulgrew”

  9. Creationists, honest from the outset, as always.

    Ok, turning off the sarcasm switch…

  10. Great scot!

    Yeah, of course she was duped into narrating it. She must have misread the first paycheck

  11. Unlike creationism, geocentrism does have some very useful applications. You do have to check your broken crystal spheres at the door, of course.

  12. Damn sure, Troy. When I look on my sundial I totally accept geocentrism. When I ride my bike from home to the school where I teach and calculate the time I need I even assume the Earth is flat.

  13. Its depressing when these nutty things pop up. I must confess to occasionally feeling despair when I argue with creationist family members (in-laws I might add) or try to explain such basic things such as why the earth orbits the sun. That mocking, sneering “well you can come from a monkey but I sure don’t” and “how do you know? Have you ever left the earth and watched it orbit the sun?” works on me like a heavy duty laxative. As for the latter comment which was just last weekend, the penultimate comment was “I bet the scientist you last heard saying the earth orbits the sun doesn’t even go to church”. Well, yeah – you probably got me on that one.

    “Hey, if MacBooks evolved from PCs, then why are there still PCs? Wait, wait, I already know the answer: Micro evolution is OK, but Macro evolution is against the laws of The Creator.”

    Correct. That’s why it’s “Microsoft” not “Macrosoft”.

  15. orchardlist, I feel your pain. I live in a community in Texas in which I am surrounded by ancient rednecks who think like your in-laws. All I can say is that my solution is to ignore them politely, then laugh your brains out when you are out of their presence. That seems to help with my mental health.
    Good luck.
    The thing is, you will continue to grow and learn, while they stagnate in their ignorance. They will never know the joy of discovery. The last laugh will be yours.

  16. Waldteufel, your comment, along with orchardist’s, got me to thinking about which states are the least regressive when it comes to embracing the Enlightenment and accepting evolution, paleontology, cosmology, and all the rest of unfettered science.

    We are well aware of the states that have legislatures and other officials who would readily teach creationism as science — Louisiana, Kansas, Tennessee, Florida, My home state of Indiana, your Texas, Ham’s Kentucky, West Virginia, Idaho — too many right there, but I’m sure there are more.

    It would be useful if our Curmudgeon’s readers would submit nominations for “Five Star States” — places where rationality, logic, and the Enlightenment are held in high esteem by a good portion of the population, including the politicians. In other words, places where you probably wouldn’t be “surrounded by ancient rednecks” and other droolers.

    Any thoughts on this, anyone?

  17. Richard Bond

    If the Earth is the certre of the universe, how is it doing 600 kilometres/second relative to the CMB?

  18. Oviously, the CMB is moving 600 km/s.

  19. Richard Bond

    Of course! Creationists are correct and the Tired Light theory is vindicated! Mere scientists assert that the CMB ought to be doing 299 792 458 m/s.

  20. @RSG: I nominate The Netherlands. Though our dear SC might object because of the suspicious high amount of socialists and other Dutchies who reject Reaganomics.

  21. If I was Kate Mulgrew I’d probably do it for a paycheck. It is not like geocentrism is poised to take over the world. As voice talent I suppose it would always be wise to insist on a small disclaimer that the content may not represent the narrator’s views.
