Please feel free to post any current scientific model or ancient myth.<br /><br />This post will be frequently edited as I modify the list of cosmologies with a brief description of each, and hope to go more into depth on each in this thread.<br /><br />A. Stephen Hawking<br /><br />1. Isaac Newton - Force tells mass how to accelerate; mass tells gravity how to exert force<br />. <br />2. Aristotle - stars are fixed - attached to solid crystal spheres<br /><br />3. Copenicus - earth revolves around sun; stars appear fixed only because of they are at enormous distances.<br /><br />4. The ancient Hindu model<br /><br />5. Biblical astronomy<br /><br />6. M-theories - collision of membranes, String theories<br /><br />7. The balloon model<br /><br />8. Current flat models<br /><br />9. Ancient creation myths<br /><br />10. Immanuel Kant - 1755<br /><br />11. Einstein - Curved spacetime tells mass-energy how to move; mass-energy tells spacetime how to curve; e=mc^2<br /><br />12. Gravity leaking theories, either leaking out to other dimensions and/or universes, or leaking in from other dimensions and/or universes - as an alternative view of the cause of gravity.<br /><br />13. Heraclides of Pontus.<br /><br />14. Aristarchus of Samos<br /><br />15. Ptolemy<br /><br />16. Galileo<br /><br />17. Johannes Kepler - 1610 - finite number of stars<br /><br />18.
