Science and Belief
Galileo believed in the helio-centric theory of Copernicus. Despite the fact that at the time of this theory there were nothing that proved that wrong until the Jupiter moons proved Ptolemy wrong, they did not prove Copernicus right. Then Tycho Brahe arrived at the time that alternative explanations of planetary movements and introduced an intermediate theory that applied mathematics in creating a model in which the planets revolved round the sun and together with the sun revolved around the standing earth. This kind of theory was just as satisfactory as the Copernican system.
Throughout 1630 to 1687 most astronomers preferred the[desktop] of justification. At this time Galileo refused to consider the legitimacy or perhaps accuracy of Brahe's version as he rejected to consider the possibility that exoplanets moved in patterns apart from circles. Galileo's model consisted of solely circular motions and refused to take any theory of moves that were oblong. He declares, " appears unthinkable and quite inconsistent with the looks, вЂќ since Galileo's theory demanded groups as a physical reality.
Tycho Brahe launched the third system and at enough time it still had not been scientifically proven. It absolutely was understood that unqualified support for the helio-centric theory was difficult until Brahe's system had been disproved. Galileo then a new dispute with all the Church, as they didn't believe his hypotheses. Galileo set these issues away to the side and created the Dialogue on the Two Great Universe Systems by which he contrasted the Ptolemaic and Copernican systems, as he left out the newer devices of Kepler and Brahe. Galileo thought that he discovered the top proof of the earth's movement that he previously been searching to get, rejecting Kepler's current idea that the moon causes the alternation from the tides. Galileo completely disregards any other ideas and it is quite obvious that he continues to be close-minded to any other concepts.
