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!

St. Thomas does no such thing. In a question on habits (I-II, Q54, art 2), he makes reference to Aristotle having "proven" that the Earth was round. His wording can make it seem like he agrees especially if you come at it presupposing the Earth to be round, but he does not state clearly is own opinion on the matter. He was simply using it to make another general point.

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.




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.
