In April of 1633 Galileo Galilei was
interrogated before the Inquisition. For over two weeks he is imprisoned in an apartment in the Inquisition building. Galileo agrees to plead guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for a more lenient sentence. He declares that the Copernican case was made too strongly in his book Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, and offers to refute it in another book.
And on June 22, 1633
sentenced to prison for an indefinite term
Now some may say, "Isn't it a bit late to start a Free Galileo Galilei Movement?"
For the Man, yes he died almost 400 years ago, still imprisoned by the Inquisition.
But NOT for his Principles, it is not too late for them.
It has been said those who study History are doomed to see it repeated by those who do not.
Not since the purges of Soviet Academia has the Civilized World seen the Body of Science so diminished on the grounds of doctrinal purity.
The Cause of Galileo Galilei is alive in our day.
The Acid of Dogma versus Scientific Inquiry is once again on the attack lead by a Neo-Inquisition.
Those attacked, denigrated and outcast, are not cranks, not fringe experimenters, but have among their ranks some of the Best, the Brightest Minds of our Age.
So for the Intellectual Descendants of the Great Master I call out the battle cry.
Free Galileo Galilei
Do not let his Spirit be once more imprisoned, take up the gauntlet he threw down all those Centuries ago and defend it.
Recently I ran into some interesting information on the Website of my Good Friend City Troll in Global Warming.....LOL They call this a consensus?
As I followed the links and realized as profound and alarming as the information on his website was, it was only the tip of the Iceberg.
This and subsequent posts I dedicate to the Galileos of the Modern Age. I find that label more fitting than the author's name of Deniers.
Here are some of their stories
