Read the timeline of the Church's dealing with Galileo after his death.

1758 - The Index no longer forbids heliocentrism.
1835 - The Index no longer lists Dialogue.
1893 - Leo XIII advances a view of the Bible and science entirely consistent with Galileo.
1942 - Many at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences praise Galileo on the three hundredth anniversary of his death.

You have not studied science, but we'll forget that now.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the timeline I posted. Evidently the Church - yes, even the preconciliar Church - gradually came to believe that you are wrong.

Galileo was not in trouble for any scientific theory!
