    Awesome!

    Robert Spencer has a great chapter on What Really Happened with Galileo. It WASN’T how modernists often make it out to be! The Pope was a personal friend of his; it was NOT Galileo’s SCIENCE which was at issue, but other matters entirely.

    • Nostromo

      I liked the book Galileo’s Mistake, to help clarify this episode. He was on the Catholic Church’s payroll and perhaps should be included here.

  • Galileo is not on this list? Constance H., you’ve got some ‘xplaining to do!! 😀

    • Nostromo

      I liked the book Galileo’s Mistake, to help clarify this episode. He was on the Catholic Church’s payroll and perhaps should be included here. You should be forewarned that the criticisms you find online are peppered with anachronistic fallacy.

    How about Louis Pasteur, Antoine Lavoisier, Andre Ampere, Father Lazzaro Spallanzani, Father James Macelwane, Evangelista Torricelli, Michel Chevreul, Father Angelo Secchi all of whom made huge contributions?

  • Nostromo

    There are plenty missing in this list.

  • Disciple of Dante

    You forgot Rodger Bacon? Founder of the scientific method?!?!

    “Pick a number between 1 and 25,000” “What?” “I said, ‘Pick a number between 1 and 25,000.'” “Uh, OK.” “So pick a number…?” “OK, 11.” “11, fine. We’ll make it ’11 Amazing Catholic Scientists You Should Know.’ Now, I want you to choose eleven distinct numbers between 1 and 25,000.” “What?” “You didn’t expect me to choose them all by myself, did you?”
