28. But the Church is in favour of science and not this nonsense!

Indeed the Church basis its philosophy on realism. This is precisely why we point out how the flat earth is profoundly scientific. We start with scientific proofs to demonstrate to people the veracity of our claims.
As a matter of interest the majority of the opinions of the Fathers on this issue seems to have been in the direction of the flat earth.

29. But St. Thomas argues against it!

So it seems. While his system of thought is the best there is, no reasonable person will accept that St. Thomas was infallible. The sense of the Fathers of the Church is clear however, and that is to strongly condemn the round earth. They did not have NASA spaceships or satellites in the middle ages, so St. Thomas' view was just an opinion, like others before him. We are right to be deferential to St. Thomas, but wrong to be attached to him.

We should note that Thomistic philosophy is profoundly realistic and accepts what we view with our senses. A good Thomist accepts what he sees, even if this reality hurts.

[See Summa theologiae IIIa, q. 27, a. 2, ad 2 for an example of St. Thomas' fallibility - http://newadvent.org/summa/4027.htm]



Most of the answers from these FAQs were taken from the forum of Eric Dubay. He has asked that his forum be cited. Here is the link http://ifers.123.st/ .
We do not condone the anti-Catholic content of this forum. It is recommended solely for its rigorous scientific method, and strong line against the Jew World Order, both sadly lacking among many in the flat earth movement.
