193) “No child or un-indoctrinated man in their right-mind would ever conclude or even conceive given to their own devices, based on their own personal observations, that the Earth was a spinning ball revolving around the Sun! Such imaginative theories nowhere present in anyone’s daily experience require and have required massive amounts of constant propaganda to uphold the illusion.”

And yet it was observation that lead to just such a conclusion, starting with Eratosthenes.

That's the argument; no child would come up with this by himself or herself.

Children don't regularly travel about, they believe in Santa Claus, and usually don't look about enough to figure out science, physics or what not. 

I'm not sure why a Child's perception would be an argument. Are you?
