That being said, this has no bearing on my faith.  Nowhere in the Apostles' Creed (which dates to the 4th century, iirc) does it mention "I believe the sun moves around the earth" or words to that effect.

My God, you guys really haven't a clue what this is all about. I said I was off but this has to be answered.

What the Galileo case was about was the correct interpretation of the SCRIPTURES. The Scriptuires contain the essence of the Catholic faith they teach. The subject matter involved in this cvase is of relative consequence to the real problem. It was the damage to Scripture - not the physical sciences - that caused the VIRUS that like DRY ROT changed the meaning of Scripture in so many ways that no one took them seriously again. From 1835 history shows a massive modernising of Biblical exegesis and hermeneutics. That is what happened, MODERNISM.

Cardinal Bellarmine said:

Second. I say that, as you know, the Council of Trent prohibits expounding the Scriptures contrary to the common agreement of the holy Fathers. And if Your Reverence would read not only the Fathers but also the commentaries of modern writers on Genesis, Psalms, Ecclesiastes and Josue, you would find that all agree in explaining literally (ad litteram) that the sun is in the heavens and moves swiftly around the Earth, and that the Earth is far from the heavens and stands immobile in the centre of the universe. Now consider whether in all prudence the Church could encourage giving to Scripture a sense contrary to the holy Fathers and all the Latin and Greek commentators. Nor may it be answered that this is not a matter of faith, for if it is not a matter of faith from the point of view of the subject matter (ex parte objecti), it is a matter of faith on the part of the ones who have spoken (ex parte dicentis). It would be just as heretical to deny that Abraham had two sons and Jacob twelve, as it would be to deny the virgin birth of Christ, for both are declared by the Holy Ghost through the prophets and apostles.’
