and Fallacies of the Encyclopedia Britannica by Joseph McCabe.
Father Joseph McCabe
(1867-1955), as a Franciscan monk.
McCabe was born in Manchester, England, in 1867 and died in London
in 1955. His father was from Hibernia - the Island
of saints and scholars. As a very young man he was zealous of
serving God, so he entered a Franciscan monastery in England. Instead
of turning him into a saint . . . the Franciscans turned him into
believed that he could serve God with all his MIND. He soon found
out that upon entering the monastery he had to leave his brain at
shock when he found out that the motto of the monastery was:
ignorance is bliss, tis folly to be wise."
Father Joseph McCabe
quit the monastery after 12 years and became one of the most prolific
writers in history. Rome made an ATHEIST out of him, and most of his books
denounced the Papal system and espoused ATHEISM. Of course he believed
that the Papal system was "Christian" and he denounced them
as anti-scientific for opposing Galileo.

stated there was/is no place for a young, bright, thinking person in the
monastic system. Here is Father McCabe's description of a monastic library:
"Of the character
of the books of a monastic library, it may be said that two-thirds of
them would be dismissed with scant courtesy by the modern reader. The
most valued section consists of a number of folio volumes, the more
ancient and illegible the better, of the works of the fathers and medieval
theologians. Few of the friars ever venture to consult them, yet they
are understood to be the nucleus of the monastic library. Then comes
a great wealth of ascetical literature and hagiography-" spiritual"
works of intolerable dullness, and lives of the saints that bristle
with the most outrageous legends. The theological and scriptural section
is also well filled, and there is a good collection of volumes of sermons.
There are many friaries in which the catalogue practically ends with
these, but in most monasteries one finds a fair quantity of historical
works, and a certain number of strictly orthodox literary and philosophical
works. Science is very sparsely represented -- it is ever ill at ease
in ecclesiastical establishments; apologetical and polemical works are
numerous. The classics are very much neglected, for the friars have
had a poor classical education, and though they are very familiar with
ecclesiastical Latin, few of them could read Horace or Livy at sight;
very few of them read Greek." (Life in a Modern Monastery,
McCabe discovered that the Encyclopedia Britannica was CASTRATED!!
doing research for his books, Joseph McCabe found out that the venerable
Encyclopedia Britannica was castrated when it became the property
of the Rockefeller syndicate:
revision of the Encyclopedia Britannica was undertaken with
a view to eliminate matter which was objectionable from a Catholic
point of view and to insert what was accurate and unbiased. The whole
of the 28 volumes were examined, objectionable parts noted, and the
reasons for their deletion or amendment given. There is every reason
to hope that the new edition of the Britannica will he found very
much more accurate and impartial than its predecessors."(McCabe,
