Galileo was punished by the church for teaching that sun is stationary and the earth moves around it. His opponents held the view that earth is stationary and sun moves around it. If the absolute motion has no meaning, are two viewpoints equally correct or equally wrong?

Dear   NIKHIL GARG,

 

1) here what is the important thing is frame of reference. when we see from earth frame the sun is rotating around earth

 

2). when we see from sun frame the earth is rotating around sun

3) when we see them from indepedent of both frames. like we are seeing galaxy of sun system then we come to know that the earth is rotating around the sun.

 

so from both of point view is different galileo saw that  from indepedent of two frames. the church saw that in earth frame.

that is a nice question
