Considering that the planets revolve around the sun, due to it's gravitational pull, it only seems fair that the sun is the center of the solar system.

I see. You have a point my friend. Planets revolve around the sun due to its gravitational pull. I think my mind was opened as i read this response. Really the planets are revolving around the sun because the sun has a gravitational force and so the sun has the reason to be the center of solar system because of its gravitational force and then God has the reason to put the sun to the center maybe because the planets will not wandering away from its orbit around the sun.

The present planets which are revolving arround the sun were the part of sun itself before trillions of years ago. When these masses were separated from sun they had a momentum given by sun being smaller in size and mass sun looks stationary and planets revolving arround the sun. But The sun is also a part of a galaxy which again has its whirlling motion too. the movement of sun is not noticeble because the time as we count here is too small to sence.

Do you mean that the planets that are revolving around the sun is came from the sun? How can it be? Can you prove your opinion my friend? That is a new for me. In my idea, i believe that the earth is first created than the sun, if you will read your bible. In genesis 1:1, it says "In the bebinning God created the heaven and the earth." And the later verse only that the sun was mentioned. I mean, the earth first created before the sun. So how can you prove that the planets revolving around the sun are the results of the massess separated from it? Kindly can you prove my friend your stand regarding on this? Good luck and more power.

The sun is the most prominent feature in our solar system. Sun is the largest object and contains approximately 98% of the total solar system mass. One hundred and nine Earths would be required to fit across the sun's disk, and its interior could hold over 1.3 million earths. Therefore sun is the center of the solar system.

I see. It is in the center because it is the most prominent feature in our solar system. NOw i come to another qustion, why is it that the sun is bigger than all of the planets revolving from it? What is the reasons? Can you help me my friend in answering that kind of question? Good luck and may you post more good and quality discussions here at mylot.

its because the sun has more mass so there is no possible way for the earth to be the center and plus there are other planets that can prove that we arent in the center and the sun is i dont really are really because its not something that you ahve to know but its because the sun has so much mass and pretty much gives us life

Good point my friend. Because of its mass that makes him the center of the solar system. God maybe has the reason to put it to the center because it mainly can give life and lights to all planets that are near in the sun, like earth. And God has the reason to put it to the center mainly because he wants that the planets around and revolving around the sun will get there source from the center of the solar system, which is the sun. Very good point my friend. Keep up the good work and good luck.

The Sun is huge and its massive energy keeps the planets of the solar system and other bodies in orbit. The Earth has enough mass to keep the Moon and some smaller bodies in its orbit, but that's all.

I think the sun is the center of the solar system because of how hot it is and where it is located.
