Links that explain what really
happened when Galileo's findings
were disputed in the 1600's
Evolutionists are fond of using the story of how they say Galileo was persecuted by "the church" for what we now know to be accurate scientific findings. There are some interesting things they don't tell you about Galileo that would take the wind right out of their sails in terms of being able to use this argument. To see the details they've conveniently left out, see:
What is the lesson that Christians should learn from Galileo?
What were Galileo's scientific and biblical conflicts with the church?
The Galileo 'twist'
There is also a good write-up about this on pages 98 - 102 of the book entitled Refuting Evolution by Jonathan D. Sarfati, Ph.D, F.M..
