Gravity can exist on a flat earth.
And even models that assume no gravity on the Earth usually agree that gravity does work outside of the Earth.

Since you are dithering, let's go back to the beginning of this line of debate.
It's a stupid idea to assume that gravity would work outside Earth (in the Solar System) and not on Earth.

Oddly enough saying an idea is stupid is hardly an argument.

When it contravenes all the laws of physics and work of thousands of physicist, yes.

I guess when you run out patience sticking your fingers in your ears an appropriate second choice is to move on to fallacious arguments.

You haven't yet made an argument to disprove.

Yes: the Sun is the center of the Solar System because the planets we know (Mercury, Venus, the Earth) rotate (elliptical trajectories) around it.

Thousands of years of observation. Explains retrograde motion.

Epicycles also explain retrograde motion.

Why are you so obsessed with EA? Nobody really believes in it anyway.
