Einstein was a brilliant student, failed none of his classes, and was consistently getting top grades; the story that he came of as an idiot in school is a complete and utter piece of **** .

I think it should be noted that Galileo was not the first to hypothesize that the earth went around the sun, nor was this the reason the Church put him under house arrest. Keep in mind that ******* nobody uses a literal interpretation of the Bible until the American Fundamentalists come around in the 1800's (see Darwin, next frame). More or less, what happened was that Galileo and the Pope were best friends and Galileo told the Pope to suck a bag of dicks, as friends are wont to do. However, this was around the time of the 30 Years War, coincidentally the absolute worst time in history to tell the Pope to suck a bag of dicks. Anyway, he gets put under house arrest where he lives in a ******* mansion and is free to come and go pretty much whenever he wants, after all, he was friends with the Pope. However, the attention brought to the heliocentric model by all this controversy is why we associate Galileo with it and not any of the numerous other people who independently developed this hypothesis as well.

Up until the 1800's science and religion were one and the same. Only the clergy had access to the necessary materials and studying the nature of the universe was considered the same as studying the nature of God.

TL;DR The myth of Galileo being persecuted for his science doesn't exist until the late 1800's in response to the Fundamentalist movements. He was an arrogant prick, though brilliant scientist, who happened to piss off the most powerful man in the world. Because of this, attention was brought to his model, ushering in a new era of scientific development.

I dont find it hard at all. I see no reason why my faith (christian in nature although I dont really follow any one branches' teachings) does not allow for alien life, dinosaurs, or even other gods.

the only time you can truly be wrong in science is when you deny the existence or possibility of something. lack of creativity in scientists is detrimental to progress.

with science anything is possible
