Speaking about General Relativity, physicist Richard A. Muller, of Physics at UC Berkeley concluded:
“According to the general theory of relativity, the Sun does orbit the Earth. And the Earth orbits the Sun. And they both orbit together around a place in between. And both the Sun and the Earth are orbiting the Moon. . . . So it is not wrong to say that the Sun orbits the Earth. It just leads to much more complicated equations that give you no good intuition for the behavior of gravity.”

Anyone scientifically literate knows the above, because it is a basic result of general relativity. Someone at the NSF needs to be fired.
Also, perhaps we should be more careful with our "<sighs>" "<yawns>" and "<groans>"
