Was he spinning in it?

Posted by: Hammer / 8:15 AM

Hey, look, they found the bones of Copernicus in a Polish church. Copernicus argued that the earth revolved around the sun. Wacko.

In sort-of related news, a Vatican cardinal again notes the value of science:

Cardinal Paul Poupard, who heads the Pontifical Council for Culture, made the comments at a news conference on a Vatican project to help end the "mutual prejudice" between religion and science that has long bedeviled the Roman Catholic Church and is part of the evolution debate in the United States.

The Vatican project was inspired by Pope John Paul II's 1992 declaration that the church's 17th-century denunciation of Galileo was an error resulting from "tragic mutual incomprehension." Galileo was condemned for supporting Nicolaus Copernicus' discovery that the Earth revolved around the sun; church teaching at the time placed Earth at the center of the universe.
