God new evidence

GOD: new evidence

Contents

Galileo's book that insulted the Pope ('Bad Faith' #9)

Previous: Why did Galileo get in trouble?      Next: What really happened to Galileo?

Why was Galileo put on trial? It isn’t as simple as we’re often told. Galileo's great book, the 'Dialogue of two chief world systems' was meant to be a balanced description of the arguments for the earth-centred and sun-centred pictures of the universe. Instead, Galileo put the arguments for an earth-centred universe into the mouth of a fool, and made the Pope look foolish. It is not surprising that he ended up on trial.

With contributions by Professor Ted Davis (Messiah College); Dr Allan Chapman, (Oxford University), author of 'Slaying the Dragons: destroying myths in the history of science and faith' and 'Stargazers: Copernicus, Galileo, the Telescope and the Church;' and from James Hannam, author of 'God's Philosophers: how the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science.'

‘The fact that we are just on the knife-edge of existence, if the dark energy were very much bigger we wouldn’t be here, that’s the mystery.’
- Professor Felix Bloch, Stanford University
