The church was not fond of the scientist who went against their teachings and knowledge and viewed those who did as unholy or against the Catholic religion because the church believed their knowledge to be the exact knowledge and words of God. Theories form scientists such as Galileo etc. later disproved the church's teachings though they were not against the religion as many scientists grew up Catholic.

Many past theories have either been proven wrong or correct. For example; Copernicus's geocentric theory was disproved by Galileo and proven to be right over time and is now known to us. Newton's laws of motion and discoveries of how gravity works were helpful while shaping our common facts and beliefs, therefore shaping our modern scientific understandings.
