The Conspiracy Theorist Who Duped The World's Biggest Physicists

Popular Science spoke with Rick DeLano, whose movie The Principle shows the world's most famous cosmologists promoting the idea that the Earth is the center of the universe.


In December, the trailer for a star-studded new documentary about the universe was uploaded to YouTube. 

"Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong," promised Kate Mulgrew, who played Captain Kathryn Janeway Star Trek: Voyager and, more recently, Galina "Red" Reznikov on the Netflix series Orange is the New Black. "There is a crisis in cosmology," said physicist Michio Kaku. What crisis?

"You can go on some websites about NASA and see that they've started to take down stuff that might hint at a geocentric universe," the trailer continued, as we heard from Robert Sungenis, proprietor of the perhaps unsubtly titled blog Galileo Was Wrong, geocentrist, and Holocaust denier.

The film, called The Principle, promotes the long, long-debunked idea that the Earth is the center of the universe. When it started getting attention in April, Raw Story, Slate, the Washington Times, the Huffington Post, and countless others wrote about the film. It was a hit, for all the wrong reasons.

  1. Unknown to education and science are the true workings of fire, water, air, light, magnetism, sound, sight, cold, hot. electricity, earthquakes, tides–and I could go on and on. I ask you, without knowing the truth of such things, how in bloody H can one determine the simple working of our universe?!
