    Hm.

    It’s precisely that sort of unfounded assumption on your part about who you’re discussing with and what their views are that makes me worry about your motivations and your impartiality.

    It is correct that he was not convicted of heresy but only because he recanted, so claimed to accept the Church's 'truth' that the Earth was stationary and the center of the universe. A failure to...

    Well there is the fact that you continually insist that the church did not try Galileo for claiming that the Earth orbited the sun rather than that the Earth was stationary. You use the trick that...

    So as long as the findings of people like Galileo did not interfere with or contradict the Church's current dogmas, it was acceptable. When it did, well, you ended up tied to a stake on a wooden...
