What did Galileo discover? ('Bad Faith' #6)

Previous: From Copernicus to Galileo       Next: Galileo was a thug!

What did Galileo find out that led to his famous 'conflict' with the church?  He discovered that the heavens are not perfect and unchanging – his telescope revealed the moons of Jupiter, sunspots, the phases of Venus, the pock-marked surface of the moon – and many more stars than you can see with the naked eye.  This brought him into conflict with what science (not religion) had been saying for more than two thousand years.

With contributions from 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 Professor Ted Davis (Messiah College).
