In this paper the author considers the dilemma between geocentrism and heliocentrism approaching from the viewpoint of biblical tradition. Conceived in this way, the conception of geocentrism is not inconsistent with heliocentrism, but appears rather as its complement on a more profound metaphysical plan. It will be seen further on that even the heliocentric system is dependent on this metaphysical framework, whereas the converse is not the case and, therefore, it may be said that the geocentric system appears as elder in an ontological sense as it also preceded in history. Eventually the author proves the assertion that the postmodern science can be considered as a return to conceptions of traditional Cosmology.
