No Evidence that "Historicism" is Compatible with Sacred Scripture or Tradition

About a year ago I suggested that Progressivist (Heterodox) theologians should prove that the so-called "doctrine" of Historicism is taught in either Sacred Scripture or Sacred Tradition. To date, no responses have been forthcoming. At that time I argued on the basis of logic that the concept of Historicism is self-contradictory. That is to say, it is totally incompatible with right-reason.

It is not surprising that no attempt has been made to defend Historicism on philosophical or theological grounds. Yet, it remains the organizing principle in virtue of which the Conciliar Church continues to deny the obvious contradictions which exist between its assertions and pre-Vatican II Roman Catholic doctrine/dogma. It allows Progressivists to dodge the indictment that their claims violate the law of non-contradiction--a fundamental precept of "first principles of being" i.e. metaphysics.

What/Where is the Roman Catholic Church?

In light of Traditional Catholic dogma/doctrine, how should the Second Vatican Council be viewed ? Is it consistent with Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and prior Magisterial teaching?

What explains the tremendous amount of "bad fruit" which has been forthcoming since the close of the Council in 1965? “By their fruits you shall know them” (Matt. 7:16)

This site explores these questions and more in an attempt to place the Second Vatican Council in proper perspective.
