  • The Earth is flat.
  • Anaximander
  • The Earth is a cylinder.
  • Pythagoras
  • The Earth has crystals around it that make music.
  • Thales believed that the Earth was flat, like a plate he thought that way because if he looked at the horizon it looked pretty flat but his theory was disproven in A.D. 1473-1543 A.D. by none other than Copernicus.
  • Aristotle
  • The sun spins around Earth.
  • Anaximander thought that Earth was a cylinder like a can of beans Anaximander was Thales's teacher he argued that the boundless has no meaning.  He was also disproven by Copernicus.
  • Aristarchus
  • Pythagoras believed that crystal spheres spun around earth and when they touched they made music.  Now even though he was wrong about that he also was right about the music, in the book Our Mysterious Universe it states"Scientists have discovered a faint constant hiss caused by background radiation.  Maybe that's what Pythagoras was hearing.
  • Copernicus & Galileo
  • Aristotle believed the Earth was a sphere and that the sun spun around it of course he was right about Earth being a sphere but he was wrong about the sun spinning around Earth but it was easy to get confused that the sun spun around the Earth back then but the people still believed his theory.
  • Aristarchus was correct along with a few other scientists about the theory that the Earth spins around the sun but the people still didn't believe him and they still believed Aristole.
  • The Earth spins around the sun.
  • Copernicus was a smart scientist he believed that the Earth revolves around the sun this was called heliocentrism the people believed him this was of course proved by scientists later on in the years.  Galileo was a smart scientist he actually proved that the Earth was not in the middle of the universe but he was house arrested after he shared that fact with the world.
  • The Earth isn´t at the center of the universe
