    It doesn't. The Earth orbits the Sun because of the Sun's gravitational pull, not the other way around. The Sun does revolve, however, because of inertia.

    You are being taught knowledge that has been obsolete for six centuries. What the hell is your teacher teaching you? Has your teacher been repressed from true scientific facts?

    The sun doesn't spin around the Earth. The sun rotates on its own axis roughly once a month (but not as a rigid body), and unless you are studying the sunspot cycle and solar activity, you don't really observe this.

    The APPEARANCE of the sun orbiting Earth is really nothing more than EARTH ROTATING ON ITS OWN AXIS.

    It takes 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds (a little less than the 24 hours that we call a day) for Earth to rotate on its axis once. That is why it SEEMS like everything revolves around Earth. But in reality, Earth is rotating.

    The Earth orbits the sun once every 365.25 days (year).

    The 24 hour daylight cycle that we observe is a mathematical combination of both the orbit around the sun and the rotation of Earth on its axis.

    The Sun does not spin around the Earth. The Earth spins once every day while the Sun stays put.

    The sunlight (Sol) and the Earth are a factor of the image voltaic gadget. The image voltaic gadget is a factor of the Milky way Galaxy. The image voltaic gadget orbits the centre of the galaxy so for this reason Sol does one orbit or spin around the Earth each and every 250 Million 12 months approx.

    the Earth revolves around the Sun, when the Earth rotates on its axis the Sun seems to move across the sky but it doesn't

    the earth revolves around the sun. the sun does not revolve around the earth and it is all due to the gravitational pull of the sun the exact same relationship our moon and earth share

    Is his name Ptolemy? It does 'spin', but only on its own axis (the middle part rotates faster than the poles).
