Information is not true simply for being new. In fact, I would say that the quest for novelty is a peculiarly modernist sentiment. Not that other eras weren't attracted by the novel, but that did not have the particular animus against tradition that we find today.

If we seek truth and wisdom, I'll wager dollars to donuts that it is more likely to be found in traditional thought than in any progressive ideal.

You wrote: “Information is not true simply for being new. In fact, I would say that the quest for novelty is a peculiarly modernist sentiment.”
Is this statement directed at the posted article? If so do you put into the same category of “the quest for novelty” those who are diligently seeking the truth in a very confusing world and even a very confusing Church today, as Pope John Paul II encouraged us to do?
I see your identity as: “TradicalRC (Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus.)”. You might find interesting:
“QUESTION 3. How may one understand the dictum “extra ecclesiam nulla salus” without falling into either a false triumphalism or indifferentism? (Ecclesiology of the Catholic Church; http://schis-trad.blogspot.it/2008/03/ecclesiology-of-vcii.html).
