Former Professor and Astronomer at University of Cambridge Admits He Cannot Prove Ball Earth (Quote)

“When we consider what the advocates of the Earth’s stationary and central position can account for, and explain the celestial phenomena as accurately to their own thinking as we can ours, in addition to which they have the evidence of their senses and scripture and facts in their favor, which we have not; it is not without a show of reason that they maintain the superiority of their system… However perfect our theory may appear in our own estimation, and however simply and satisfactorily the Newtonian hypotheses may seem to us to account for all the celestial phenomena, yet we are here compelled to admit the astounding truth, if our premises be disputed and our facts challenged, the whole range of Astronomy does not contain one proof of its own accuracy.”

~ Dr. Robert Woodhouse (1773 – 1827) English Mathematician, Cambridge Astronomer, Fellow of the Royal Society
