In the beginning the earth was flat and no one was to prove that it was round, but with the advent in science this is now quite obvious. But no less obvious will be the fact that the earth has its seasons due to a rotation of precession rather than the fixed immovable position that current science has given it. And that in a manner of speaking the earth, like unto the moon orbiting the earth, also appears to have a single period of rotation for each orbital period that it makes around the sun. The earth thus for each single orbit around the sun makes one full turn of precession which gives it its seasons. That turn of precession then comes short of that one full turn of orbit by about 20 minutes. And it is by those 20 minutes each year that the earth appears to have a precession lasting 26.000 years; the axis of the earth pointing to the star called Polaris and by one half thereof (13.000 years) graduating towards the star called Vega. It however is not a precession, but rather a "regression," even as the seasons do not come about by a fixed axis but rather by a precessional axis.
