Ptolemy had a theory on planetary movement (also called the geocentric theory) and church teachings were brought into question by Copernicus's heliocentric theory.
Galileo offered support on the heliocentric theory with his own experiments on motion and his observation of space with the use of a telescope.
Newtons law of gravity furthered the laws of motion and continued to challenge of old theories.
Ptolemy I Soter, born 367 through 366 bc, Macedonia. Died 283/282, Egypt. He was a Macedonian general of Alexander the Great, who became ruler of Egypt, 323–285 B.C.
He created the scientific method. The scientific method was a major contribution of this time period, establishing a grat way to find proof using reason.
astronomer, Galileo was born on February 15, 1564 in Pisa, Italy. He died on January 8, 1642 in Arcetri, near Florence. He was a natural philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician who made fundamental contributions to the sciences of motion and other things.
But i'm telling you, all of my research is true and it can't be disproved of!
then lets try it then and see if it will burn or not.
Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England and died on March 20, 1727, London. He was an English physicist and mathematician, who was the culminating figure of the scientific revolution of the 17th century.
My hypothisis is that this lava rock will burn because it is found near volcanoes.
Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561, at York House off the Strand, London. In 1576, Bacon had been admitted as an "ancient" , senior governor, of Grays Inn, one of the 4 Inns of Court that served as institutions for legal education, in London. In 1584, he sat as member of Parliament for Melcombe Regis in Dorset.
With all of this, people started to really question what the church was telling them and if it was true or not. This made the church start to punish people like Galileo and try and stop people changing the church with their scientific ideas.
I've had enough of this! You shall not publish your research and you shall be punished for disrespecting Gods teachings!
We know that the sun is in the middle of our universe thanks to Galileo's research. We also know how to figure out if a hypothesis is true or not thanks to Francis Bacon's Scientific Method.
