Why did Galileo get in trouble? ('Bad Faith' #8)

Previous: Galileo was a thug!      Next: Galileo's book that insulted the Pope

In 1616, Galileo was summoned to Rome, where Cardinal Robert Bellarmine warned him not to teach as fact something that he couldn't prove.  But in 1632 (with one of his friends now the Pope), Galileo published his book, the 'Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems.' In it, he once again claimed that the Earth goes round the Sun – despite having been warned off claiming this until there was more evidence.

With 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.'

‘Clearly there are religious implications whenever you start to discuss the origins of the Universe. There must be religious overtones. But I think most scientists prefer to shy away from the religious side of it.’- Professor Stephen Hawking
