The eclipse debunks the globe/heliocentric model of the universe.

Opening Argument

Many people watched the eclipse. I watched it without the NASA specs. It has been my suspicion that the whole "don't look at the eclipse" thing was a bit overrated and i was right. I still have great vision. Anyway, the moon, or whatever blocked the light of the sun, moved from a northwesterly path and crossed towards the southeast. We observe the moon moving in the same path as the sun overhead, from east to west. The heliocentric model has changed the moon's direction to the opposite of what we see it traveling to get the earth spinning, and try and get the eclipses right, while keeping the sun still. It takes around 30 days for the moon to orbit the earth in the heliocentric model. So why does the moon's shadow (totality) move across the United States in a matter of hours from northwest to southeast? 

I asked because they usually have things like this correct, but their animations, like the one above, show the earth spinning in the opposite direction. Does this debunk the heliocentric model? Final nail in the coffin?

    2. But... magic!
