There were two reasons as to why there was conflict between science and the Roman Catholic Church. One reason was that scientific ideas contradicted with Church teachings. The second reason was that if people were to contradict with the Church teachings, they weakened the Church. Church officials feared that as people began to believe scientific ideas, then people would start to question the Church, making people doubt key elements of the faith. Church officials feared that scientific ideas would threaten the powerful influence of the Church.
