The Day the World Turned Upside Down: Galileo and Paradise Lost - After two-thousand years of Western science making excuses for the problems of a geocentric model of the universe, Galileo finally did the unthinkable; he declared that the sun did not orbit the earth.

This revelation of a heliocentric universe threw astronomers’ world out of the nice, orderly spheres of the Ptolemaic system, and into a random and chaotic existence, without as much clear proof of a divine plan....   [tags: evil, religion, intellectualism]
