Empirical deduction. we don't experience the earth move, but perceive everything else as in motion, therefore we are not in motion. Furthermore, Catholicism necessitates geocentricism, God's most important creatures cannot simply be on a rock like the other rocks we observe in the sky.
None of it but Galileo's discoveries with the telescope were very important in raising questions about the old Ptolemaic theory, which was geocentric. However Galileo's discovery of Venus's phases was not a proof of the heliocentric principle because Tycho produced a geocentric model that explained Venus's phases.
The geocentric theory is the theory which led people to believe that the earth was the centre of the universe and that the sun, planets and the starts all revolved around it. This was based on the anthropocentric idea according to which human beings are special creatures and that the universe exists purely for their benefit.The daily journey made by the sun, moon and planets and stars, through the sky suggested to early humans that all these bodies were orbiting the earth. There was no individual who came up with the theory.
Some Greeks by 100 BC had adopted a heliocentric view but most probably held geocentric views.

Science and theory in the early 20th century?.
Newfoundland was the first province to be discovered by early Europeans. Please don't erase what I put.
If this is for school it's probably in you book.
There is currently really no big need to gather evidence for this theory - the theory is firmly established. What scientists are after nowadays is more details about the early Universe.
Nothing but he abandoned the geocentric theory quite early. Later he got in trouble for proclaiming that the heliocentic theory was the absolute truth, when scientific knowledge at that time did not provide enough evidence for the claim. He was put on trial by the Vatican for heresy and in court he was asked to provide proof of his statements. Previously he had said he had a proof but that the cardinals were too stupid to understand it, but in court he was forced to admit there was no proof and he recanted. However Galileo's important discovery of moons orbiting Jupiter showed that not everything in the Universe revolves round the Earth, and this was a building brick on which eventully more and more evidence was added until in the 18th century after the theory of gravity came along most people believed that the Sun is at the centre. The discovery of stellar parallax in the 19th century put the finishing touch to the heliocentric theory.

One observation of early scientists that supports the cell theory is that all cells divide which was observed in 1855. The other observation was that living things contain cells which was observed in 1839 by Theodor Schwann.
Galileo's discoveries showed faults with the old Ptolemaic theory, which had the Sun at the centre. So he was right to publicise these but not to proclaim that the heliocentric theory of Copernicus was correct. Tycho produced a geocentric theory that explained the phenomena discovered by Galileo, which were (mainly) the full range of phases dislplayed by Venus. Eventually Johannes Kepler brought out a new heliocentric theory with novel elliptical orbits for the planets. It was later backed up by Newton's theoretical discoveries and by later measurements, and it is the model used and accepted today.
The geocentric model shows earth as the center of the universe. That means everything even the sun revolves around it. That was the theory used in early Greek astronomy. Heliocentric literally means, "sun in the center." That is the way our solar system really is, with everything revolving around the sun. It has been proven by space probes and missions
The Europeans. =D
amerindians and europeans
They played cricket in the early 1600s
France did in the early 1700's
