That would be us, at least according to the promoters of one of the weirdest conferences I’ve ever heard of. Called “Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right,” it’s being held on November 6 near Notre Dame University, and will feature the following, uh, somethings:

•Dr. Robert Sungenis: Geocentrism: They Know It But They’re Hiding It
•Mr. Mark Wyatt: Introduction to the Mechanics of Geocentrism
•Dr. Robert Bennett: Scientific Experiments Showing Earth Motionless in Space
•Msr. Rick/Wyn Delano: Scientific Evidence: Earth in the Center of the Universe
•Mr. Martin Selbrede: Answering Common Objections to Geocentrism
•Dr. Gerry Bouw: The Biblical Firmament: Outer Space is Not Empty
•Dr. Robert Sungenis: Galileo and the Church: What Really Happened?
•Mr. John Salza, Esq.: The Fathers and Exegesis of Scripture on Geocentrism
•Dr. E. Michael Jones: English Ideology, Newton & the Exploitation of Science
•Mr. Hugh Miller: Carbon 14 & Radiometric Dating Show Young Earth

The “idea” behind this confab is explained thus:

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.

If you happen to have $50 you aren’t using and are in the neighborhood of South Bend, Indiana the first Saturday in November, drop in on Sungenis and Company, and be sure to ask them to autograph your map of the world:
