Storyboard Text

  • My name is Johannes Kepler, and I would like to explain to you why it looks like the earth is still, and why my ideas should not be rejected on the basis of scripture.
  • First of all, it is very easy to say that the sun moves and the earth is motionless because that is all that we can see.
  • Who is this guy??
  • People who use Psalms to discredit the heliocentric theory, should leave religion out of the study of physics. Should we "turn our eyes from physics to the tradition of scripture?"
  • But, Mr. Kepler, "'one generation passes away,' says Ecclesiastes, 'and another generation is born,' but the earth abides for ever".
  • That is a good point but just as the wind moves and the river flows, the earth will eventually return to its original position, the contents unchanged.
  • Sir, you are "a very long way from speculation about physical causes".
