Another oldie but goodie, Uwe Homann had posted to the old BA board:

The Sirius Research Group (http://www.siriusresearchgroup.com/precession.htm) webpage claims that the precession of the earth does not occur, but that the earth revolves around Sirius. Unfortunately, their data (apparently a homemade system for observing Sirius) has slowly shifted (or improved) over the years, and now seems to support precession.

precession. {250,million} Earthling yEARs

Yeah? i've my suspions about 25,000 Earth years 2
anyway my map making shows Sirius crossing the
Galtic Equator slightly ahead of our own Sun
and "this crossing" very recent 10million:250million EARTH YEARS?

They have a discussion of Solar Eclipses and the Precession-Time Paradox (http://www.siriusresearchgroup.com/moon.htm) on their latest updates page (http://www.siriusresearchgroup.com/latest.htm).

Most of the previous discussion (http://www.journaloftheoretics.com/Comments/c3-5.htm) concerned their data, but that latest update says that the fact of the existence of solar eclipses and the Saros cycle proves that there is no precession.

The last paragraph states

In practice, the precise cycle of solar eclipses (time and location) is calculated from the position of the vernal equinox. This fundamental frame of reference remains fixed with respect to orientation of the earth's axis in space. Consequently, the semi-axis of the 360-degree orbit of the moon around the earth and the semi-axis of the 360-degree orbit of the earth around the sun remains fixed relative to the axis of the earth.

I'm not exactly sure what they are trying to say here--any interpretation I can come up with makes it false.

5:26 P.M. PST my prime attack on this would be the 360 degree Circle?
A. Assumes a continuim { I do Not } [ Space without time may be HoleLLy]
b: I recall once drawing triangles on spheres and getting anglses > 180 ? {end of attack}

And in hyperbolic geometry you would have triangles with the sum of the angles less than 180
