  • I just came across this fascinating item:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0977964000/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0977964000&linkCode=as2&tag=httpwwwchanco-20

    Notice how dogmatic are the negative reviews.

    At any rate, if you're a geocentrist, indicate it like so:

     :applause:

    If not, like so:

  • I shall forego your choices and tell you I am a geocentrist...as it is the only truly reasonable position to hold.

    I understand. This is yet another sign of the radical independence and awesome power of your gamma-charged brain. I salute you, sir. Keep it up.

  • What's wrong with heliocentric-ism? I personally think it's great symbolism; the sun is Jesus Christ, and the Earth, us. We are dependent on Him and our lives revolve around Him whether we like it or not.

    But to be honest I don't really know which view to hold as I've never studied it for myself. I know that I'm not going to seem very creditable if I start rambling that the Sun revolves around the Earth if I don't have any evidence to back it up.

    In regards to being a responsible man, would it be interesting to learn, after six years of accumulating all the wisdom you could, that you had it right all alon

  • I find this very interesting.

    I would like to know what the posters here on this Forum think regarding this topic.
    Please ignore all that I have written regarding sedevacantism.

  • I personally haven't done research enough to have an opinion either way. As of now I can only rely on my beautiful secular scholastic brainwashi- I mean studies!

    I'm open to either quite frankly.

    As a related subject, and not trying to hijack this but I believe its appropriate (I hope the OP doesn't mind) I've never forgotten about this society: http://theflatearthsociety.org/cms/ I'm bummed. They had a webpage I remember seeing in college for their Lancaster, Ca. location that I used to help write a paper (I remember I wasn't very charitable towards their ideas). I always remember that they wouldn't accept phone calls... or something like that.. but that they would be willing to meet at most any college campus for debate! That's never left my mind for some reason lol


    Also as a side note, here are some quotes from the reviews of the book I found amusing and entertaining... but more than anything, I found them ironic... lets see if you agree as to why...:

    "i weep for the fate of humanity seeing this kind of books published and even accepted."

    "It just asks people to squint their eyes and pretend things are different than they really are."

    "These people are seriously a danger to the education of future generations.."

    ""There's a sucker born every minute"" (in the case of the seculars... I say, "some times two!")

    "the future of humanity is now officially looking more and more like "Idiocracy" than I ever thought possible. "

  • I used to identify myself as Geocentrist, just for radicalism's sake, but really can't imagine the sun with it's gravitational pull revolving around the Earth. Maybe I'm just too brainwashed, I don't know.

    While I may not really believe in Geocentrism scientifically, I do believe in it spiritually. This world is where God chose to become man and  where salvation history plays out. All things that matter are HERE!

    I know the Church has ruled that the Earth is the center of the universe, and there is no evidence to the contrary. But regarding weather or not the earth revolves around the sun or not, who should I believe, the Church who has been the sanctuary of science and learning throughout it's existence, or the speculative professor who thinks he's descended from apes?

    I really need to read much more deeper into the subject than what I have.

  • Yes, I'm a metaphysical geocentrist. Physically, I haven't looked into it, nor am I really qualified. The CD-ROM I linked to might be very interesting on this front. But I don't think I'll buy it. Our salvation doesn't depend on knowing this information.

  • If you read Isaac Newton's Principia you can see that already at that time the speed of light had been calculated and the distance of the earth to the sun.

  • Is there ANY conspiracy theory or contrarian historical/ scientific view you do NOT take, GV?

    It seems you are eager to run down any slipperly slope imaginable.

    Galileo was condemned as a heretic by the Church for being a heliocentrist, then many years later John Paul II said the Church was wrong to condemn him.

    Hmm, I wonder who is more trustworthy...

  • I am a geocentrist for 2 reasons.

    1). I do not experience heliocentrism, and,

    2).  it was pretty well defined as a dogma by the Magisterium at the time of Galileo.

  • The proposition that the Sun is the center of the world and does not move from its place is absurd and false philosophically and formally heretical, because it is expressly contrary to Holy Scripture.

    The proposition that the Earth is not the center of the world and immovable but that it moves, and also with a diurnal motion, is equally absurd and false philosophically and theologically considered at least erroneous in faith.

  • Were those infallible statements?

    Why or why not?
