Reader comment on: Militant Muslims Cutting Out Tongues

Submitted by Joseph E., Nov 12, 2012 12:14

Galileo Galilei's position that proved the earth revolves around the sun and is not the center of the universe, as had been believed, represented such a radical departure from accepted thought that he was denounced to the Inquisition for blasphemous utterances. He was tried by the Inquisition in Rome, ordered to recant, and forced to spend the last eight years of his life under house arrest.
