Augustine, Galileo and natural science

I could go into more detail, but the fact is that his work prior to his arrest was by their standards, and our standards, completely rubbish.

It was his work after his arrest that gets him praise.

The Church, in this case, was more for science. Galileo was trying to turn back scientific understanding.

The Galileo affair is only brought up when one expects others to be ignorant. It is never used by serious attackers of the Church.
