I know that the sun is the center of the universe.
Copernicus is right
This is gravity
The church teachings were brought into question by Copernicus’s heliocentric theory. Copernicus knew that the sun was the center of the universe. The church did not agree with him.
We need to find proof for reason.
At first Galileo thought that Copernicus was wrong but after he invented the telescope he saw that Copernicus was right.
Conflicts Between the Church and the Scientific Revolution
Issac Newton discovered gravity. Newton furthered the laws of motion. He also continued to challenge the old theories.
How The Scientific Revolution Impacts our World Today
Francis Bacon came up with the Scientific Method. He wanted to find a systematic way to find proof for reason. The steps for the scientific method were first to, begin with a question, then you form a hypothesis that is tested through experiments, after that you analyze the data to come up with a conclusion.
The church is based on faith and revelation. The church felt like it was being challenged from science. Scientists were called on to stop their teachings and had to say that their teachings were wrong and the church teachings were right. They threatened to excommunicate the scientists if they did not. Galileo was even put under house arrest because of his challenges.
I believe that the sun is the center of the universe.
Say your teaching are wrong or we will excommunicate you!
Because of the scientific Revolution we now understand more about our world. We had advanced technology and more knowledge about science. The Scientific Revolution advanced our world today.
