...and don’t forget that the Catholic Church persecuted Galileo for agreeing with Copernicus...the church “couldn’t handle the truth!”
since neither one of those guys are running for president, who cares....they are just small pieces of skelton by now...unable to vote...
Copernicus dedicated his book, On the Revolution of the Celestial Orbs, in which he gives an excellent account of heliocentricity, to Pope Paul III. His research was funded by a bishop.
Obviously, the Church didn't oppose the theory of heliocentrism per se, unlike the Lutherans. What the Church opposed was Galileo's demand that the Church teach heliocentrism as dogma. Otherwise the Church would have opposed Copernicus.
Ironically, while Galileo was right about heliocentrism, his science was flawed, and didn't prove his theory.
I'd wager that you went to public school, are on the public dole and will actually vote for Soetoro.
