You're telling me no other country has managed to go there in almost 50 years?

Yes, I'm telling readers exactly that.

U.S.A.!  U.S.A.!  U.S.A.!

Here's wishing United-Statesian CathInfo members, readers, and of course its owner-moderator, a happy 50th anniversary [*] of the Landing on the Moon by the U.S. lunar-excursion-module Eagle of Apollo 11.

-------
Note *: The anniversary date of the landing as reckoned by Greenwich Time is July 20 (8:17 p.m.) but the 2 Moon-walking astronauts did set foot into lunar dust until nearly 3 a.m. July 21 GMT.  They did stay for 21½ hours after landing (these are corrections to my "50th Anniversary" posting misplaced late last night in <https://www.cathinfo.com/fighting-errors-in-the-modern-world/we-never-went-to-the-moon-proof/>).  I regret that the anniversary hours have passed at the CathInfo server-bunker in the Central Daylight Time-Zone.  So I hope it was a happy anniversary for United-Statesians, one and all.

I didn't comment to start a battle. It looked to me as if you were collecting info and material.

With some smarts and basic social-engineering skills one can amass an insane amount of intelligence and money off the internet.

Hello,

I'm a US service member (USMC) in Virginia. I've been a traditionalist all my life and I am looking for fellow Catholics who can help me find a good Latin Mass in Arizona as I will be moving there soon. Looking forward to hearing from you all. 

I come from NH originally and I enjoy reading the Great Books, science fiction, fantasy (No one is complete without Tolkien), and military history and philosophy.

There is nothing anyone can say which can defeat the clear change of policy represented in the OP of Cor Unum #41 (and with Fr. Chazal, Fr. Pivert, and Bishop Faure also acknowledging the change in policy in 1992, I think any who will try will have an uphill battle).

I didn't comment to start a battle. It looked to me as if you were collecting info and material.

The fact that the M&M experiment tested to see if the Earth was moving is still factually incorrect, and asserting the Earth being stationary as its conclusion is also false.

Neither Sungenis nor I assert what you insinuate here. You're fighting a strawman!

The experiments of Airy, Sagnac, Michelson&Morley, and Michelson&Gale together prove the existence of the Aether and they confirm geocentrism.

I am not interested in debating a series of unfounded claims of a user, who declares that he has "very little knowledge" on the subject. Please open your own thread: "Why forlorn won't watch the new video of Sungenis".

Der Protokoll am 5. Mai 1988

Protokoll über ein Einvernehmen zwischen Sr. Em. Kardinal Joseph Ratzinger und Sr. E. Erzbischof Marcel Lefebvre, erstellt während  der  am 4.  Mai  1988  in  Rom  abgehaltenen Zusammenkunft, unterfertigt am 5. Mai 1988

I. Text der doktrinalen Deklaration:
Ich, Marcel Lefebvre, emeritierter Erzbischof-Bischof von Tulle, sowie die Mitglieder der von mir gegründeten Priesterbruderschaft St. Pius X.:

[...]

Schließlich versprechen wir, die allgemeine Disziplin der Kirche und die kirchlichen Gesetze zu achten, insbesondere jene des von Papst Johannes Paul II. promulgierten Kirchlichen Gesetzbuches, unbeschadet der der Bruderschaft durch ein besonderes Gesetz eingeräumten Sonderdisziplin.

Abp Lefebvre is ready to promise to respect "ecclesiastical laws", particularly the CIC of JPII (although L. had explained earlier that those modernists in Rome had been excommunicated ipso facto for modernism a long time ago).

Also, in his speech at the episcopal ordinations 1988, Lefebvre named Prof. Georg May from Mainz, who had justified necessity using the CIC of 1983.


Probably one can find quotes where L. rejects the modernist law, too.

Anonymous Posts Allowed / Re: Have any devout Catholics ever won the lottery?

Almighty God allows what He allows.  His reasoning, if it can be called that, will only be known to us in the next life, and even then, only insofar as He chooses to reveal it to us.  So, yes, a traditionalist Catholic could win the lottery, or he could not.

I can only say that if I ever win it (i.e., win one of those multi-multi-million jackpots), I can think of one city that will have a very nice traditional Catholic church, with resident priests and solely the Latin Mass available on a daily basis, and ownership and all financial matters will be overseen by a corporation and board of trustees selected by me.  Depending on the amount of money involved, a free K-12 traditional Catholic school, with quality instructors both lay and religious, reflecting the diversity of the Catholic community (i.e., not just for rich people), would also be created.

And I might buy a somewhat bigger house and a new car, set up a trust fund for my son, and arrange for high-quality in-home care for my elderly parents.  That's about it.  I live simply and wouldn't know how to live otherwise.

You just show that your prejudice makes you blind. The light-carrying medium is proven by the experiments of Sagnac and of Michelson & Gale.

Why not use your reason and watch the video?
Why insist in staying uneducated?
Why keep trolling this thread?
The claim that the M&M experiment tested to see if the Earth was moving is still factually incorrect, and asserting the Earth being stationary as its conclusion is also false. Same goes for the other experiments he cited that "showed" the Earth was stationary. If it's his assertion that the Aether is real and he wants to prove it later on in the video, he can say as much. But not even mentioning the Aether in the context of those experiments and lying about what the experiments were about and what they proved - is just intentionally misleading the viewer.

He also falsely accused Lorentz and Fitzgerald of petitio principii, saying that they assumed the Earth was moving to prove that it did. This is not true, as the M&M experiment was not designed to determine whether or not the Earth was moving and did not claim to come to a conclusion on that matter. The conclusion of the experiment was that Aether winds could not be detected. Assuming the Earth is moving in an explanation of the results of an experiment about the existence of Aether Winds(phew, what a worldful) is not petitio principii. The conclusion(whether or not Aether winds exist) is not part of the assumption at all. So once again, Sungenis blatantly misrepresents.

If it's the truth you're interested in, you shouldn't be defending fallacies or sneaky tactics. Even if we assume geocentrism is true, his misrepresentation and downright lying about certain things in the video would be picked up immediately by heliocentrists watching and they'd probably just click away at that point, assuming the rest of the video to be the same. Geocentrism is something I hope is true, as it'd be by far the easiest way of proving God to atheists, and I'm willing to give Sungenis the benefit of the doubt that the rest of the video is worth watching, so I continue, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to ignore misrepresentations, lies and fallacies he's made in the parts I've watched so far.
