Sarah Posner on Perry’s Galileo Moment

Spread the love

Is Rick Perry the New Bachmann? There is a distinct possibility that this is true.

Sarah Posner, author of God’s Profits: Faith, Fraud, and the Republican Crusade for Values Voters, has this to say:

In last night’s debate, Rick Perry, stumbling over his answer denying the science of climate change, opined, “Galileo got outvoted for a spell.” Of course Galileo, considered the father of modern science, wasn’t “outvoted” by other scientists, he was subjected to an inquisition by the church for being a heretic.

That post is here, but also look at this post.
