No, he was very wrong.

He was unscientific, he provoked lawful authority, and he got in trouble for it.

Quote:The fact is, some overly fundamentalist clerics heavily influenced by early Protestants condemned heliocentrism and were absolutely wrong in doing so. It should be a lesson to us. The only time in the history of the Catholic Church that such a group condemns a natural theory, they're wrong. We ought to stick to bold claims in matters of faith and morals.
The fact is, it has nothing to do with astronomy.

The only time in the history of the Catholic Church that such a group condemns a natural theory, they were right.
