After running from my previous debate offer on Twitter in 2012 (see: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2012/08/proof-rosa-accepted-debate.html), blogger Rosa Rubicondior whose real name is Esther Harrison (see: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2014/10/case-study-rosa-rubicondior-revealed.html) proposed a new debate which I accepted. I invited her to debate on Sacerdotus Hangouts and she accepted after stating that she will not do it on a site run by me. You Tube is not run by me so there is no excuse for her to run away again. The debate will be live and in real time. There will be no possibility to edit anything. It is a neutral forum.
“Rosa Rubicondior” pretends to be an intellectual atheist despite her scientific illiteracy demonstrated on her blog which brought others and myself to form www.rosarubicondior.com which is a site that counters her blog misinformation.
When she is challenged to a debate or questioned on her errors, she then runs away and starts defaming whoever dares counter her. In retaliation, she has been posting defamatory and libelous posts targeting me and claiming I am some kid named “Manuel” despite my CUNY college records on CunyFirst showing my legal name, see here: http://www.sacerdotus.com/p/about-sacerdotus.html
Here is the video showing proof that she invited me; I accepted and she accepted to go on Sacerdotus Hangouts:
Here is a synopsis of her intellectual cowardice:
Rosa Rubicondior runs from debating me, see:
Rosa Rubicondior then tries to change the debate and make it her’s despite it originating from me. She did this to save face, see:

Let see if Esther Harrison aka “Rosa Rubicondior” sticks to her word and shows up. So far, it seems that she is going to run from debating me again as her sock puppet accounts are not trolling the event claiming she did not accept to debate.
According to a microbiologist at the University of Nottingham, UK; a potion from an old English medical compendia from the 10th century entitled Bald’s Leechbook may be a cure for MRSA. The concoction was meant to treat eye infections but now turns out to actually kill MRSA.
MRSA or the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria is an antibiotic resistant organism which infects the body to the point of causing death. Hospitals throughout the world have struggled with keep it at bay, especially after it has been found in hospital rooms and equipment despite attempts by hospital to sanitize them. This recipe is written with simple instructions:
“Take cropleek and garlic, of both equal quantities, pound them well together… take wine and bullocks gall, mix with the leek… let it stand nine days in the brass vessel…”
However, the outcome is slimy, disgusting and odorous. IN lab studies, this substance was found to clear up styes and kill off MRSA. However, do not expect this potion to hit the pharmacy soon. Scientists are studying why this substance has this effect on MRSA and will try to find means of replicating it so in the future it may become a form of treatment in a more modern form.
The first reading during Mass is from Isaiah which is connected to Jesus. It reflects on how Jesus is a gifted speaker who spreads the Good News yet offends many or stirs up a commotion among the people. Because of this, He is beaten, his beard is plucked and He is mocked. This reading is a foreshadowing of the Passion of Christ.
Moreover, we continue reading how Christ tells the disciples how they will flee when He is arrested. Each boldly claims that he will not leave Christ. How many times have we been vain in thinking that we have total control of faith? How many times have we thought that we control grace in us? It is God who sustains our faith and nourishes us with His grace (James 4:6). We only cooperate by the suspension of our free will in order to submit to God’s will. Christ then goes to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. He cries tears of blood showing the pain and anguish He was going through. We again see Christ’s humanity. He is one of us! He is the perfect Adam we must imitate (Romans 5:12-18, 1 Corinthians 15:45). However, like the disciples, we often fall asleep when we are in His presence. Instead of praying, we slack off and get distracted to the point of dosing off. We must avoid this by asking God to teach us how to pray and give us the strength and demeanor to be in His presence to pray even when our human frailness gets in the way. It is in prayer that we unite with God.Lastly, we continue reading how Christ is taken to trial. The Son of God, God Himself is treated like a criminal. He is sentenced to be killed by way of Crucifixion. His crime is love (John 3:16). Christ came to save all, first to His own people the Jews. Ironically, it is sometimes our own that betray us. We must avoid being like the Jews of Christ’s time who were with Him, saw His works and still wanted no part of Christ. Like the Jews in the desert, they saw His works and still did not want to believe (Psalm 95:8). Christ is then made to go through a horrible death. First He is made to carry a heavy cross. Throughout the way, He is mocked, spat on, hit and falls down three times for the sins of the past, present and future (Hebrews 13:8). He dies on the cross and is buried. God is dead!
Today, this phrase still echoes among western societies throughout the world who have lost their Christian roots and especially in universities teaching our youth. Some believe philosopher Nietzsche to have coined the phrase “God is dead,” but this has existed way before his own birth. Christ is nailed to the cross and dies. The people of His time said, “God is dead.” The Son of God who performed miracles and preached the good news dies. We know that in reality He is still alive (Revelation 1:18). Man can kill God because God allows it out of love. Today’s age of secularism, atheism, and relativism shout, “God is dead, we have killed Him!” However, God is alive and well. He rose from the dead showing He is the God of the living and dead (Romans 14:9). He is the one who IS; who is dependent on no one for existence (Exodus 3:14).
