The "Galileo Was Wrong" conference is no hoax. A reader writes:

I called the Hilton Garden Inn in South Bend. It's real. There are a number of posts on geocentricity on Mark Wyatt's blog. Volumes I and II of "Galileo Was Wrong: The Church Was Right", by Dr. Sungenis and Dr. Robert Bennett, another speaker at the conference, are sold on Amazon. You can also go to and see a link for the conference.
