Fleecing The Stupid

From Catholic's Apologetics International:
CAI will write a check for $1,000 to the first person who can prove that the earth revolves around the sun. (If you lose, then we ask that you make a donation to the apostolate of CAI). Obviously, we at CAI don't think anyone CAN prove it, and thus we can offer such a generous reward. In fact, we may up the ante in the near future.
Easy money!

Technically, the Earth and Sun orbit each other. The Earth happens to move more due to its vastly smaller mass. The radius of the Sun's orbit around the Earth is equal to the radius of the Earth's orbit around the sun times the ratio of their masses. In the course of a year, in other words, the Sun moves a total of 1753 miles due to the influence of the Earth. The Earth, on the other hand, moves about 584 million miles.
