We are flat earthers and would like to see the topic more openly discussed among catholics...it is sad to see that protestants...who have so many errors and heretical teachings...discuss and give proof of the flat earth...although not an article for salvation within catholic teaching...I believe it is an important topic...the earths surface is flat but the whole of the earth is more like a sphere in the fact that there is the great deep and hell and purgatory then our domain then the skies above and the firmament and then the waters above the firmament.
So many things became clearer to me with the understanding of the flat earth and it strengthened my faith...not in Jesus as savior but in God and his creation...I always doubted the heliocentric theory but just accepted it because they had pics and that is what I was taught...but it never sat right within me...now I know why and it has helped me in many ways.
It's nice to have your input, Marys.
It would indeed be good to see FE discussed more openly. And you're right - it's the Prots who are to ones who are really discussing it, because they actually believe Scripture. Traditional Catholics - not so much - when it comes to the shape of the earth.
I agree that the whole of the earth is like a sphere, if we include the firmament, the waters above the firmament, and the great deep with hell and purgatory below. It just makes sense.
And yes, so may things become clearer with the understanding of the flat earth; that is, if we have faith in God and His creation.
I know what you mean about the heliocentric theory - I remember when I was a child in grade school - the globe earth didn't make sense to me then, but I accepted it, like most everyone else.
The flat earth makes a lot more sense than a globe earth.
Keep in mind, if you decide to debate the topic further, that certain forum members will do everything that they can to stop you (and us) from debating it. The way I'm dealing with them is to just ignore them, for the most part.
