It is really disappointing to see that Catholics cannot figure out that to construct an accurate calendar of 365.25 equable days you must first determine an equable 24 hour day.The principles behind this equable day are determined by exquisite reasoning based on the motion of the Earth on its axis.
Newton made himself God’s authority on natural things and reduced Jesus to God’s spokeman on moral issues hence his denial of the trinity and subsequently the truly awful situation where religion is supposed to deal with Spiritual things and science deals with fact.
There is no fact in Newton’s work on applying terrestial ballistics to the motion of the planets,his work is not some much an intellectual fountain as a tomb which sucks the virtue out of the astronomical insights he so badly misused.
Granted that the technical aspects are intricate and terrestial ballistics in itself is fine for launching rockets but applying it to planetary motion may have been a good guess but is technically and conceptually wrong .
There is nothing productive in determining that a mathematically endeared concept such as Newton’s is incorrect and a fudge, for considering the life of Jesus he spoke of what Life was availible through belief than what was wrong with Judaism and likewise with the astronomical material here as an imitation,albeit a minor imitation of Spiritual intricacies.
Nobody appear to enjoy the insight on how the equable 24 hour day emerged as a combination of clocks,geometry and astronomy but without that appreceation which extends into the creation of the calendar system much of Western ideas borrowed from the astronomical giants such as Copernicus,Kepler and Roemer are reduced to exotic trash.
Let the Vatican observatory speak on the matter of the fundamental rotation of the Earth on its axis as an independent motion.The empirical guys who did so much to counter Christian faith have managed to conceal an awful lapse of reasoning based on a 24 hour/360 degree rotation.
Without a thorough review ,intellectual accomplishment within the Western/Christian world will be all but impossble and tend toward utter absurdity (It most certainly has arrived at that point).While Catholics speak of calendars and the Easter determination it can hardly escape their attension that the equable day and the principle which keep it equable have first to be in place.
It may be difficult for Catholics to imagine that scientists uphold a really poor type of reasoning on this matter but with prejudice and as a straightforward fact they simply get the value for the rotation of the Earth on its axis wrong for self-serving and self-congratualtory reasons.
