Geocentrism is the New Creationism?

We've had half a millenium of assuming that the earth goes around the sun, and now there are some folks that want to refight Copernican and Galilean understandings of the universe?

These aren't just any people either, one of them is a Texas state congressman. Apparently they have a website espousing these views (along with some of that old-time anti-Semitism). It sort of reminds me of the time cube site to be honest, except they seem to be more serious.

What are the geocentrists thinking? Is it a sort of test of faith that you should be able to swallow a very absurd view of the natural world?
