Hi, I'm Galileo. I am friends with Copernicus and support his heliocentric theory. Right now though, the pope is a little upset with me right now and has me on house arrest because they don't agree with me and think the world revolves around the earth... Now I think that's a little self centered, am I right?
Hi there! I am Copernicus. I invented the heliocentric theory that the earth revolves around the sun. Galileo is a great supporter for me and helped me prove my theory. Though he is not so good at making jokes.
C'mon, that was funny!
Hello there! I am Francis Bacon, inventor of the scientific method!! Now first, you must ask a question. Why am I eating bacon? Now you must make a hypothesis! Because Bacon is delicious. Hm... Now we must test that hypothesis. Why don't you have some (bacon)? What... You say you don't like it? How could you? I suppose you should have some more just to make sure... no? But I do not think that is an accuerate conclusion! Hm... maybe eggs?
This is Galileo. He was a great scientist of the Scientific revolution and an Italitian polymath. His father was a musician. He went to the University of PisaHe supported Copernicus's heliocentric theory and was put under house arrest because the church didn't agree with his findings about the universe.
This is Copernicus. He was the first to question the geocentric theory and came up with the heliocentric theory, the idea that the earth revolves around the sun. There are only 27 recorded known observation about Copernicus for his entire life, if thought it is definite he made more, including eclipses, conjunction of planets and stars, and alignments. Copernicus himself was a Pisces (yes I had to look that up). He studied liberal arts in 1491 including asrronomy and astrology.
Scientist vs. Puns- I mean CHURCH The ultimate showdown.
The heliocentric theory is simply a lie!! It goes against the bible!
This is Francis Bacon. He invented the scientific method and probably loves bacon. He had an older brother, Nicholas Bacon. He was known to be witty and had a dry sense of humor, and was married to the daughter of an old rival, Coke. He was knighted in 1603. His most influential work was a book he wrote called the Advancement of Learning
I found this book about anti-gravity and I just couldn't put down..
This is Issac Newton. He went to Trinity Collage, in Cambridge. His mother refused to pay the fee for the collage so he had to work as a servant to pay for his education. He was formulated the notion of Gravity as universal force, and invented the reflected telescope. He also invented calculus, the mathematical study of change (now people have to study it in highschool, which doesn't sound fun) . He was the second scientist to be knighted ever, only after Francis Bacon.
For the church, political, social, and economic authority was on the line. Because people were doubting the church, the church was worried people would stop coming and giving them money, as well as not respecting their political voice. The church was threatening scientists like Galileo to excommunication.
But there have been theories proven against it! The geocentric theory just isn't correct!
Thanks to the scientific method (Francis Bacon), we can test new theories accurately. Thanks to Newtons discovery that colors are made of light, it affects how we see things. Thanks to the heliocentric theory, we can now study space and planets much more accurately. The Scientific revolution affects life today in many ways.
