Catholic Conference Attempts To Revive Medieval Astronomy

Fifty dollars can’t buy much these days. You can get a toaster for that much, or a silverware basket for your dishwasher. You might buy a couple of books…

…or you could get a day of extremely eccentric entertainment. This autumn, the first annual Catholic Conference on Geocentrism, entitled Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel in South Bend, Indiana, near the Catholic Notre Dame University.

Geocentrism is the belief that the planet Earth is at the center of the universe, and that even the sun revolves around the Earth. Organizers of this year’s geocentric conference assert: “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.”

The conference’s concern with confirming the literal truth of the Bible’s ancient model of the universe comes across in such promised lectures such as The Biblical Firmament: Outer Space is Not Empty. How could we have been ignorant of the big solid dome in the sky for so long? Lecturer Robert Sungenis is ready to give us the answer in his talk, Geocentrism: They Know It But They’re Hiding It

…and the Voyager spacecraft is still in that movie studio in Burbank where its interplanetary journey was faked, I suppose.

    Do you have notes or recordings of this conference on Geocentrism, entitled Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right?
    Thank you.

  • No, in spite of the tongue-in-cheek beginning of what I wrote, it’s really not worth my time to attend a conference by people discussing how an ancient, conclusively disproved idea is somehow being concealed from us all by dastardly scientists.
