But what about Galileo and… oh, you know, everybody?
About Galileo, go here. Read the whole thing. Become educated.
Then ask yourself, “What do I mean by everybody?”
Realize that you have no idea what you are talking about and are passing on urban legend.
If you feel compelled to say, “Oh yeah? Well, what about Hypatia?” go here.
Read the whole series. Become more educated.
If you feel compelled to cry, “Oh yeah? Well, what about Copernicus?” go here. Become still more educated.
If you feel compelled to cry, “Oh yeah? Well, what about Giordano Bruno?” go here. Realize, at long last, that there are few people more credulous and gullible than anti-Catholic “skeptics” who swallow whole almost any urban legend to tell them what their itching ears want to hear about the “Catholic War on Science”.
