    Then why would you state the Eucharist doesn't have a shape??
    Everyone knows it does. And they could instantly say, "circle."
    I was thinking how the Mass itself has a symbolism that matches Cosmas Indicopleustes' shape of the earth: the Host is laid upon the flat, rectangular altar, with angels at the corners, and the baldachin represents the Firmament above, which Our Lady stands atop. The baldachin rests upon the Four Pillars of the Heavens.

  • Here is my post from another thread:

    There is an important point to make about the teaching of the church.

    The question about the flatness of the earth is only one aspect of the creation of God. That being the aspects of creation which are permanent; earth, sun, moon, stars.

    What we know for certain is that the Church said in the condemnation of Galileo that anyone who says that the earth is not the center of the universe and that the sun does not go around it, is suspect of heresy. Cardinal Bellarmine was of the opinion that this was de fide. (http://flatearthtrads.forumga.net/t60-pertinent-quotes-from-fathers-and-tradition)

    Added to this, the Fathers of the Church attacked in the strongest terms, the idea that the earth was a globe.
     
    But we do not have clear statements that the earth part of creation is generally flat. Why? Because it is not necessary when you add up the above, (as well as opinions by Fathers that the firmament was solid). It is a way of putting it that no one bothered to do.

    So Neils quest is a red herring finally. Let he who has ears listen.
    Eclipses neither prove nor disprove the flat earth.

    The Church does not teach the "flatness of the earth" in the creation of God --- you must be confused with the Koran.

    Are you Mohammedan?

    Tardplorable, are you able to observe the moon and its phases and learn something?
    .
    Or are you so dug-in to your sacred cow flat-earthism that you're unable to learn?
    .
    Must be the latter.

    So far, 8 to nothing for favoring the denial of flat-earthism. Not bad.

    I am not in denial like you are; now that you see the Flat Earth Horizon, you have no excuse.

    Eight for Zero favors denial of flat-earthism.
    .
    Even flat-earthers are in favor of rejecting their own sacred cow.
    .
    We're making progress.
