Today we are joined by Dr. Robert Sungenis, author of Galileo was Wrong and the executive producer of the Science documentary The Principle, for an in depth discussion on Geocentrism. We begin addressing claims of antisemitism as well as the claim that Robert holds a fake doctorate, and get into the matter of the Galileo case, the progression of Heliocentrism to Einstein, and the various issues arising from Special and General Relativity, and at length Sungenis answers the all important question, “why does it matter whether the earth goes around the sun or not?” As with most of my interviews, this is long, but packed full of information.
NB: Interview guests do not necessarily agree with all the positions I express on the website, or with other interview guests.

I think most people are very ignorant regarding this question and you can basically tell them anything. About a year ago, in a lecture at language school, my Latin American history professor had the nerve to say that Galileo was the first to teach that the Earth wasn’t flat. Maybe even I thought that in my days of great ignorance. Nonetheless, I believe that most people with zero knowledge on this topic will jeer at you if you say that the Sun revolves around the Earth. I haven’t tried it yet, but I guess I would even raise more than a few eyebrows among traditionalists here in Europe.
Especially since St. Thomas, in the very first question of the Summa, says that the world is round. 😀
I wonder when Catholics started to believe in the heliocentric theory. It seems to have been around at least since the beginning of the 20th century. I have about 40 year’s issues of “die katholischen Missionen”, the main source for my blog posts by the way, which was the most important German mission magazine in the late 19th and early 20th century. It is usually absolutely trustworthy and has received the endorsement of numerous bishops, Cardinals and last but not least, Pope St. Pius X. Nonetheless, I stumbled upon an article from the 1910s on the religious situation in Russia in which the author laments that the Old believer bishops are anti-science and one of them even banned a book with heliocentric content since Heliocentrism was, according to the bishop, against Holy Scripture. In a Swiss Catholic magazine from 1938, they try to make scripture comply with science. It seems like the imprimatur given by Pius VI Dr. Sungenis talked about triggered this development.
