Yeah well the RCC has an easy out where it can declare erroneous statments to be not infallible thereby saving the "infallible" ones from being in error. Nothing miraculous about 20 20 hindsight and obtuse wording Jakey.

But a non Catholic could easily prove a erroneous statement to be ex cathedra by showing how it was a doctrine defined concerning faith or morals. The fact that no non Catholics found an erroneous statement defining doctrine concerning faith or morals, proves that the Popes never defined erroneous doctrines concerning faith or morals.

It is amazing that only two statements are known to be infallible. If Papal Infallibility is not true, then there would have been a Pope over the last two thousand years that would have defined a doctrine that turned out to be in error. That never happened thus proving Papal Infallibility.

So I procured a copy of the Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica. I can't believe Wizards never put out books based on Magic planes before now. This was such a great idea.

Too many to count.

Wrong, actually. The answer is two. I'm sure everyone here including you can count that high.

Quote
Catholic theologians agree that both Pope Pius IX's 1854 definition of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of Mary and Pope Pius XII's 1950 definition of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary are instances of papal infallibility, a fact confirmed by the Church's magisterium. However, theologians disagree about what other documents qualify.

Everything other than those two statements is in dispute.

So there's why you can't convince anyone of Catholicism via the doctrine of papal infallibility. Because if anyone looked through statements made by popes, and found a contradiction, you could say 'well, that one isn't infallible', and you'd have theologians agreeing that of course that one isn't.

Forgive me for not being impressed that the Catholic Church has managed to make two whole statements without obviously contradicting themselves. I guess it's better than one, at least.

Well there are also the ecumenical councils which are said to be infallible when they define doctrine concerning faith or morals and none of the councils contradict each other despite there being 20 of them over a period of 2000 years(Excluding Vatican 2 because Vatican 2 did not define doctrine)
