# Kepler's First Law Is A Lie

**Kepler's First Law of Motion Explained:**

This is nonsense. Gravitation is demonstrably an accelerated velocity. Drop an apple and see this fact for yourself. The string's pull towards Sun's center should increase meaning that the Earth would simply spiral towards this imagined point. There is really nothing else to say about this. Kepler's so called law is a nonsensical idea and is not a theory. It is not based on any demonstarble natural principle, in fact it contradicts demonstrable ballistic physics, a bullet fired from a gun strikes the ground at the same time as one simply dropped from the same height.

**This Demonstration Actually Shows Us Why This Is Wrong**

*The second foci: "Which scientists are still trying to determine. We know it's there though."*

Further, Kepler's sacred and speculative law is based on the fallacious assumption that the Sun is the center of the Universe, a fact conveniently forgotten by modern black mattered minds. Yet this Copernican idea required Kepler's elliptical orbits, as the Copernicus model was flawed and these solar cultists had to figure out some kind of mathematically modeled apologetics to save royal Sun face. This absurd second law requires a second and mysterious, scientifically unidentified foci. The Sun is not good enough. This is obviously fallacious and is nothing but ad hoc religious apologetics. A practice continued to this day with all the talk of multiverse black energy and dark matter.

**More "Elliptically" Reasoned Apologetics:**

**One solar system based center of mass is still one foci what about Kepler's First Law? Two Foci are mandated by his decree. What's the deal?**

*"Actually, both the Sun and the planets move around each other with their center of mass lying at the focus of the elliptical orbits. However, since the Sun contains 99.9% of the mass of the solar system, the center of mass is located almost at the Sun and so it looks like the planets are going around the Sun.*

*There is no real significance to the second (empty) foci of the elliptical orbits. The same laws that govern the orbits of planets around the Sun also govern the motion of binary stars and in that case since the masses of the two stars may be roughly equal, the foci of the elliptical orbits may not correspond physically to any object. As I explained earlier, the Sun appears at one focus ony because it is so much more massive than any of the planets and so its center lies close to the focus (which is the actual location of the center of mass)."*

*"There is no real significance to the second (empty) foci of the elliptical orbits."*

There are supposed to be two foci. This is supposed to be needed to explain the elliptical orbit. Since none of this is real it is all easy to dismiss parts of Kepler's laws and to use sleight of hand illogic and fallacious mathematical equation to maintain cult like adherence to ideas that are demonstrably insane.

**Ptolemy's Model Works: Kepler's is Fudged**

"*Ptolemy's model for planetary orbits (ca. 150 AD) entails the idea of an "equant" point, a location from which an imaginary observer would see the planet, along with its epicycles, move with an uniform angular velocity. The Ptolemaic worldview was superseded by Kepler's laws of planetary motion (ca. 1605). By Kepler's first law, planets move in elliptical orbits around the Sun at one focus. Kepler's second law implies that the planet sweeps out equal areas during equal intervals of time. This is a consequence of the conservation of angular momentum. The angular velocity about the attracting focus is thus variable, except for a perfectly circular orbit. The planet speeds up around its perihelion (nearest distance) and slows down around its aphelion (farthest distance). There is no mention of the "empty" focus of the ellipse in Kepler's laws. However, the realization that angular motion about the empty focus approximates the equant property was well known to astronomers in the and centuries. *

*Determination of an elliptical planetary orbit involves repeated numerical solution of a transcendental equation, carried out in the cited **Demonstration on Kepler's second law. In the present Demonstration, you can compare the accurate result to the approximate empty-focus construction, in which the planet's predicted location is shown as a blue circle. The approximation becomes more accurate for smaller values of the eccentricity and, of course, exact for a circle.*"

*"As an indication of exactly how good the Ptolemaic model is, modern planetariums are built using gears and motors that essentially reproduce the Ptolemaic model for the appearance of the sky as viewed from a stationary Earth. In the planetarium projector, motors and gears provide uniform motion of the heavenly bodies. One motor moves the planet projector around in a big circle, which in this case is the deferent, and another gear or motor takes the place of the epicycle."*
