In fact, just the model of an atmosphere adjacent to the vacuum of space demands a firmament.
To just state:
The atmosphere consists of layers of gases, called “air”, that surround the planet and are retained by Earth’s gravity. (Cf. The NOAA link above.)
is to be dogmatic, antithetical to their philosophy, science, and the experiential facts given above (car on a highway – even more if such a speed is on a round track since the heliocentric model has the earth moving in an orbit – and air open to a vacuum). Note that the model of the earth spinning on its axis hasn’t been factored in, which would further compound the issue: different rotational speeds, max at the equator and decreasing to zero at the poles as one moves along the longitudes.
Also, let them explain why the earth’s waters, its inhabitants, its atmosphere, are all not flung toward such a required firmament if not pinned to it.
The Antichrist must have an attendant Pontiff – and now has – because:
The term “mashiach” literally means “the anointed one,” and refers to the ancient practice of anointing kings with oil when they took the throne. The mashiach is the one who will be anointed as king in the End of Days.

How has LORD saved His Church and prevented the gates of Hades from prevailing against her?
By Exposing the Enemy’s Flanking Maneuver to give the Church Women “priests” either way:
The LORD has now revealed the enemy’s flanking maneuver to Simeon Bar-Jona.
Let the Bishops of His Church act!
The LORD’s Original Promise
Matthew 16:17-19 (RSVCE)
17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter,[a] and on this rock[b] I will build my church, and the powers of death[c] shall not prevail against it.[d] 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,[e] and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
a. Matthew 16:18 Greek Petros
b. Matthew 16:18 Greek petra
c. Matthew 16:18 Greek the gates of Hades
d. 16.18 The name “Peter” comes from the Greek word for “rock.” Jesus makes him the foundation on which the church is to be built. The word “church” means “assembly” or “society” of believers. The Hebrew equivalent is used in the Old Testament to indicate the chosen people. In applying it to the church, Jesus shows it to be the Messianic community foretold by the prophets.
e. 16.19 the kingdom of heaven: Peter has the key to the gates of the city of God. This power is exercised through the church. “Binding” and “loosing” are rabbinic terms referring to excommunication, then later to forbidding or allowing something. Not only can Peter admit to the kingdom; he also has power to make authoritative decisions in matters of faith or morals.
First taught by Saint Ambrose in the fourth century, the title of “Mother of the Church” for the Virgin Mary was proclaimed by [Saint] Paul VI on November 21, 1964, at the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council’s third session. Since that time a devotional memorial to Mary has appeared on a number of proper religious, diocesan, and national calendars. To better focus the Church’s attention on the maternal care of the Blessed Mother for the disciples of Christ throughout the ages, Pope Francis has chosen to inscribe this memorial for the universal Church.
Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation, provided some spiritual reflections in a commentary accompanying the decree: “The water and blood which flowed from the heart of Christ on the Cross as a sign of the totality of his redemptive offering, continue to give life to the Church sacramentally through Baptism and the Eucharist. In this wonderful communion between the Redeemer and the redeemed, which always needs to be nourished, Blessed Mary has her maternal mission to carry out.” He also recounted the existing liturgical history of the celebration of Mary, Mother of the Church. In preparation for the Jubilee Year of 1975, her Votive Mass was approved in 1973 and inserted into the Missale Romanum, editio typica altera. Saint John Paul II added “Mother of the Church” to the Litany of Loreto in 1980, and during the Marian Year of 1987, a new Collection of Masses of the Blessed Virgin Mary was issued, including two additional formularies for the Virgin Mary as “Image and Mother of the Church.” Cardinal Sarah’s commentary reminds the followers of Christ that “if we want to grow and to be filled with the love of God, it is necessary to plant our life firmly on three great realities: the Cross, the Eucharist, and the Mother of God. These are three mysteries that God gave to the world in order to structure, fructify, and sanctify our interior life and lead us to Jesus.”
If there are only two sides – and there are only two sides – in opposition to one another [as in good vs. evil, light vs. dark, right vs. wrong, love/beauty vs. hate/abomination, true vs. false, sweet vs. bitter, life vs. death, freedom vs. slavery, salvation vs. damnation] then if they agree on a thing, that thing MUST be true.
The two sides aforementioned say God exists[i], therefore, that God exists, is, TRUE.
The two sides in their respective worship allow for an only all-male priesthood.
RECENT CATHOLIC CHURCH POPES
The following are all ILLUMINATI PRIESTS [ – MALE Priests]
The Supreme, Self-existent, Eternal, All-wise, All-powerful, Infinitely Good, Pitying, Beneficent, and Merciful Creator and Preserver of the Universe was the same, by whatever name he was called, to the intellectual and enlightened men of all nations.
The Guilt of Mankind
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
Counts I., II., and VII. are heretical propositions opposed to formal [De fide] dogmas, with VII. opposed to at least 8 formal dogmas.
Counts III., IV., V., and VI. are false propositions contrary to dogmatic facts.
It has been observed that Count VII. is indicative of a repudiation of the entire Christian religion and of the Catholic Faith.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
– Isaiah 5:20 (RSVCE)
In addition to the heretical and apostate charges, all of the counts are an inversion of or opposed to some Catholic truth or teaching: for example, obedience to God is called a sin when it is disobedience to God that IS a sin.
Let the Bishops of the Catholic Church do what is incumbent upon them and thoroughly investigate these charges because the one accused is none other than Pope Francis, the current Pope of the Catholic Church, and if found guilty, not only would he be a heretic and an apostate, he would also be a false teacher/prophet.
