126) “The Sun’s annual journey from tropic to tropic, solstice to solstice, is what determines the length and character of days, nights and seasons. This is why equatorial regions experience almost year-round summer and heat while higher latitudes North and especially South experience more distinct seasons with harsh winters. The heliocentric model claims seasons change based on the ball-Earth’s alleged “axial tilt” and “elliptical orbit” around the Sun, yet their flawed current model places us closest to the Sun (91,400,000 miles) in January when its actually winter, and farthest from the Sun (94,500,000 miles) in July when its actually summer throughout most of the Earth.”
A false claim about what science claims about the seasons.
Because of the axial tilt and the orbit around the sun, the apparent 'height' of the sun changes throughout the year. For the northern hemisphere, when it is summer, the tilt is towards the sun, so that the apparent latitude is higher (i.e. the earth-sun plane is above the equator during day). In the winter, it is pointing away and the apparent latitude is lower (i.e. earth-sun plane below equator during day). It's not a very hard explanation, and we already saw it in #59.
So no, the mainstream model doesn't claim the distance to the sun is what determines the seasons. This is simply false, and only serves to shows that the 'mainstream model' is not understood by the writers of the flat earth arguments.
