And the catholic church accused him of heresy & punished him by life imprisonment!
Do we really believe that "he lived comfortably & was allowed to continue his work."

religion has ALWAYS stood in the way of everything progressive!

Shameful what the Catholic Church has done to so many including Galileo.
Happy Birthday Galileo.
