Skip to comments.Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right--First Annual Catholic Conference on Geocentrism
Posted on 09/16/2010 2:36:13 PM PDT by Inappropriate Laughter
Galileo Was Wrong is a detailed and comprehensive treatment of the scientific evidence supporting Geocentrism, the academic belief that the Earth is immobile in the center of the universe. Garnering scientific information from physics, astrophysics, astronomy and other sciences, Galileo Was Wrong shows that the debate between Galileo and the Catholic Church was much more than a difference of opinion about the interpretation of Scripture.
Scientific evidence available to us within the last 100 years that was not available during Galileo's confrontation shows that the Church's position on the immobility of the Earth is not only scientifically supportable, but it is the most stable model of the universe and the one which best answers all the evidence we see in the cosmos.

This doesn’t LOOK like satire! lol
Oh my gosh, they can’t be.
Everyone knows the universe was created 9 hours ago when I woke up, and is centered wherever my eyeballs are. Also, when I die, you all disappear forever.
THEY must be a bunch of dirty no-goodnicks.
Are they trying to say John-Paul believed this?
Of course, you can make anything the center of the universe and have everything rotating around it. It just isn’t the simplest explanation of the movements of the other bodies.
Oprah is the center of the universe.
That's a relief. Since it was created when you woke up, I feared that the end of the world would come to an early end if you doze off in front of the TV this evening.
They are. And although you might think otherwise from the top of your head, Dr. Sungenis has been talking about this for a few years, and isn’t a crackpot. He’s actually a pretty kick-butt apologist. I don’t know much of the subject matter here, just giving what tiny background I do know.
I think they are accusing him of abandoning the “truth” of geocentrism because he issued a formal apology for the Church’s treatment of Galileo.
I wonder what the speaker’s doctorate is in...
What a pant-load
A more orthodox view of the subject.
You may not wish to believe it, but there is sound scientific evidence for a non-rotating Earth.
I am looking at your post through my index finger and thumb. Now I am crushing your post.
Is NOBODY paying attention????
The world revolves around OBAMA!!!!
General Relativity is wrong too?
You do know why spacecraft are generally launched on an eastbound trajectory, right?
(Also, your user name is quite appropriate for the subject.)
That would be something, considering that GPS navigation doesn't work without taking it into account.
A Gallup poll from the '90s showed that 18% of Americans believe that the Sun rotates around the Earth, which just goes to show that there's no idea so absurd that you can't get millions of people to believe in it.
Figures, that make Oprah the Black Ho .. le at the center of the universe.
Geosynchronous satellites are just hovering in space if the Earth is still. What keeps them up?
So some arbitrary quasar, sitting at the edge of the observable universe, orbits the Earth every 24 hours moving at what speed, again?
Oh man...that is brilliant. Funniest thing I’ve seen all day.
Did you just wink? I felt the universe shift about 2 inches to the right.
Yeah, but that's OK. General Relativity hasn't been completely proven. Special Relativity is apparently wrong and that's been pretty well tested and proven.
I wonder what these guys think about Quantum Mechanics? If that were wrong, electronics wouldn't be possible.
They probably think the quasar is just painted on one of the crystal spheres...
But who takes them seriously?
Um...they're embedded in the aether? Either that, or happy thoughts a la Tinkerbell.
At least one poster on this thread, by all appearances.
My theory on General Relativity is that, simply put, if your parents didn’t have any kids, you won’t either.
Grab something nearby... I am going to roll my eyes.
I agree with Caesar Soze. I’ve never seen a more appropriate time to laugh. :’)
Whoops, and thanks KoRn!
Galileo was wrong and the Catholic Church right, but not for these crackpot reasons.
Relative to the Big Bang, wherever you are is the center of the universe and the edge of spacetime. Viewed one way, every direction you look, even across a room, is looking back in time. Looking in any direction at night, the Big Bang is 13.7 billion light years away and getting further away at nearly the speed of light. You, along with every other point in the universe, is exactly at the center of it. In other words, nothing has moved from the center since creation. Looked at from the Big Bang, everything is at the edge of a sphere of expanding space-time. There is no center of the edge of a sphere, but neither can you look at anything from the Big Bang without backward travel in the time dimension. It is just a 3D construct of 4 dimensions, replacing one of the spatial dimensions with time.
“Galileo was Wrong”.
So is the author/creator of this meeting, since there is no such thing as a “First Annual” anything! It can be the inaugural, but until there is a second event, it’s NOT annual!
I’m sure the Catholic Church is just thrilled about this one. I read that the head of the conference was forced to remove the name “Catholic” from his work by his bishop. His “PhD” isn’t even in science, its in theology. And even that looks, well, a little questionable. :-/
One of the other main presenters (DeLano) didn’t even finish high school.
Are there people out there who really find these people worth dropping $50 on? I’ve got to start doing my own conferences. Anyone interested in a conference on spontaneous generation?
I’m only charging $25. I promise it will be filled with scientific proof and interesting conspiracy theories. There will also be beer.
