On scientific freedom

The moment that we are denied the right to question a scientific theory that is held by the majority, we are not far away from Galileo’s predicament in 1615, as he appeared before the papal inquisition.

Sensitivity and specificity anyone? Reliability?

so the fascist lesson that oozes from some posts is: if Galileo had written his theory in Georgian , then locked up in a vault, all would have been fine you know..the pope wouldnt have minded at all.


Some people should be locked up alright

Galileo’s vast reputation, and the hyperbolic accolades that go with it, are not justified by the real history. With a corrected perspective on the man comes a rich and compelling pair of questions: what did Galileo actually achieve, and where does the science superhero image come from?
Galileo’s reputation is more hyperbole than truth
