Lutheranism, Missouri Synod[edit]

The statement "However, in the 1902 Theological Quarterly, A. L. Graebner claimed that the synod had no doctrinal position on geocentrism, heliocentrism, or any scientific model, unless it were to contradict Scripture. He stated that any possible declarations of geocentrists within the synod did not set the position of the church body as a whole." This is provided with a cite to the relevant issue of Theological Quarterly, which someone had annotated with a "failed verification" tag.

I removed the tag. It's true those exact words do not appear in the cite, but the statement was not marked as a quotation. I just read the article myself and it seems a fair summary. The only reason I'm not giving relevant quotations from the source is that it's rather prolix in an early 20th century kind of way and it's too much typing to reproduce, but the author makes it very clear that 1) Pamphlets advocating geocentrism were published in a private capacity only, regardless of an author's connection to the Synod, and 2) it's outside the Synod's purview to teach anything on scientific topics. 192.91.173.34 (talk) 23:29, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Geocentric Model vs. Ptolemaic System[edit]

Under the "Ptolemaic Model" heading, there's the line "Because of its influence, people sometimes wrongly think the Ptolemaic system is identical with the Geocentric model." This is really confusing, the first line of this article says another name for Geocentric Model is Ptolemaic system. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.61.31.212 (talk) 18:13, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
