scientific method by francis bacon: rule 1: blah blah blah rule 2: yadda yadda yadda rule 3: whatever
Copernicus believed that the earth revolved around the sun, this was called the heliocentric theory.
Galileo invented the first telescope so he could help copernicus figure out if we had a heliocentric solar system or geocentric solar system. They were right and it was a heliocentric government. He was put on house arrest because the church believed ptolemy and thought it was a geocentric solar system.
such heresy, you shall be excommunicated
francis bacon was a philosopher. he created the scientific method. It was helpful to everyone who had a hypothesis because it helped them find evidence and reason.
isaac newton was a philosopher. he figured out that gravity was made to keep everything on the earth. he also figured out that light was made up of all the colors. he figured this out by shining a flashlight through a transparent pyramid, the light went through as a yellowish color and can out as a rainbow.
i found out about gravity because one of those apples hit me on my head.
the church was like the monarchs right hand man. They wanted everything they said to be right so if anyone was to go against them they took action.
i was just saying you had the wrong idea, i'll take it back and won't publish my books, just don't excommunicate me!
because of these philosophers we have a limited government. They helped us find reason and find out the real truth.
