The difference, of course, is that Gallileo was right.

Dear Mr. Beck,

You do realize I went up against a Pope and the orthodoxy of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, right?
You do realize that I fought with my life and honor against the ignorance of established dogma, right?

You know, if I were alive today, I'd come over there and punch you right in the pants, for using me as a reason to keep people ignorant of scientific discovery, right?

You just watch yourself mate,
Galileo Galilei

Again, Beck and his ilk need to be more specific.  They want CHRISTIAN creation stories to be taught along side science.  If schoolboards said OK to teaching the Islamic creation myth, I'm pretty sure Beck would be blubbering tears yet again.

Dear Mr. Galilei,
you really should not have called the Pope a simpleton in your book. Insulting the Holy Father that way is the entire reason you were put on trial, and not because of your scientific beliefs. Heliocentrism vs Geocentrism was just an excuse to put you on trial, chastise you, ban your work Dialogue and commit you to house arrest.

You should in fact be thanking for the Holy Father for your arrest and confinement, because it allowed you to focus on what became your greatest work the book Two New Sciences.

Don't make us dig you up and excommunicate you.

The Holy Father.

ChimpMitten: Tymast: why aren't our children learning to measure in cubits?   all I ever hear is inches this, yards that.   Football is the worse offender not only do they work on the day of rest, they use these units in front of impressionable children who now think that is the right thing to do.

What's a cubit?


it x it x it.   ie. it^3

Considering the Islamic creation mythology is the same as the Hebrew and Christian mythologies...

But, that might be an effective tactic: "Glenn Beck wants force school districts to teach the Muslim creation story!!!"

Opposing the Teaching of Creationism... as Science.

But don't let those qualifiers stop a moronic rant.

You know, these people need some farking perspective. Paying for somebody's birth control is not the same as Pol Pot's killing fields and teaching science in school is not the same as being imprisoned and executed.

Just farking stop it already.

When creationism shows me how to observe, push, prod, and dissect these creators and how I might replicate their results, then it will be a theory worth teaching. Otherwise that hypothesis has no place in a child's starter biology course.

a particular individual: Uchiha_Cycliste: a particular individual: Jesus the 33rd: It's Galileo, not Gallileo.

Galileo Figaro...Magnifico!

But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me -

Spare him his life from this warm saucy tea.

I thought "with or with out you" was "before he gets you" and that the song was about a shark attack,
In my defense I have a 65 Db hearing loss.

Alas, to assume the mantle of Galileo, it is not enough that you be laughed at. You must also be right.

yes because the imprisonment of a man who refused to stop teaching scientific fact is exactly the same as stopping teaching a scientifically disproven creation myth
