We are both ignorant on this subject - how could we know the truth if even great scientists haven't fully proved anything yet either?
just because there are christian sites out there peddling the belief that the earth is the center of our solar system doesnt make it a valid point of view. i can easily refute any statements you might have made.
geocentric solar system
yeah, this is a great theory. except one problem. bodies only orbit other bodies when they are held in its gravitational field. problem being, gravity is a force defined heavily on mass, and as much as i like the thought of the sun orbiting a planet 0.0003% its mass, there is no way that will fly.
no center of universe
the doppler effect, like it or not, relates to light as well as sound. most objects in the universe have an observable red-shift, which suggests that they are all moving away from us. were you to subscribe to the "big bang" concept (which the red-shift phenomenon supports QUITE strongly), this would provide a means of proving, and, some day, finding, the center of the universe.
