Now that we approach the theatrical opening of “The Principle” in Chicago this Friday many people are getting worried, including, Atheists, Protestants, and even Catholics. I have been on many of these internet forums and they are about to have their worldview challenged in a big way.
I predict this will be one of the most heated debates in coming months, and it's about time. I give all glory and honor to God for orchestrating “The Principle” to be released during these times.
As the theatrical release of “The Principle” is less than 2 days away, I am even noticing a somber mood on cathinfo from certain members on here who have been against geocentrism- coincidence- I think not.
I predict you are wrong.
The movie will open in some backwater 30 miles west of downtown Chicago, a few internet nuts will mock it. People with academic qualifications from "Universities" based on small pacific islands will make a few posts and it will sink into oblivion.
We do not know. Unlike all the other evidence of a stationary earth rather than a moving one, this evidence has the advantage of modern communication. It might well take off as a novelty rather than the evidence that makes a joke of the last 400 years of astronomy and cosmology.
As regards its impact on those with the Catholic faith, it may well sort out the chaff from the wheat. Intellectual pride has long proven to be a stronger 'faith' than the traditional Catholic doctrine on Geocentrism. Moreover, if anyone is capable of putting a Catholic two and two together, the evidence for an earth at the centre of the universe SHOULD cause a greater IMPACT within the Church than among scientific academies. You see both have followed the false Copernican PRINCIPLE since 1741 at least.
For myself, the best result would show Vatican II was far from being guided by 'the holy spirit' as they claim.
‘… The humble and persevering investigator of the secrets of nature [Copernicus and Galileo]
is being led, as it were, by the hand of God in spite of himself, for it is God, the conserver of all things, who made them what they are. We cannot but deplore certain attitudes not unknown among Christians [the 1616 decree of (St Robert Cardinal Bellarmine and Pope Paul V and the 1633 judgement of Pope Urban VIII
] deriving from a short-sighted view of the rightful autonomy of science; they have occasioned conflict and controversy and have misled
many into opposing faith and science.’ --- Gaudium et spes

This movie will show who was misleading who.
