THE SUN MOVES!

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: Tariq, Science is not in the Qur'an

again, i don't know where these scientific facts you state come from. do some research before you make statements like "the sun does not move"!
Yes the earth does orbit the sun but the sun itself is also in orbit and completes a revolution every 250 million years. The sun in fact moves at a staggering orbit speed of around 220 km/s. the reason its orbits take so long is because it actually orbits the entire centre of the galaxy so its a huge distance.
please people check your facts because if your science is so obscure what is to say that your comments on religion are not?
