  1. Blue morning, blue day? One of the things that got Galileo in trouble was him trying to use science to explain Joshua 10:12-14 when time stood still. The church was actually okay with Galileo and his science, but when he ventured into theology, that was a no-no. After being acquitted a couple of times by the Inquisition, and was going to be acquitted again, but Galileo had made a fool of the Pope in one of his writings, therefore, the Pope made sure Galileo was convicted of heresy. Actually, the church was right in the final case against Galileo. Galileo taught that the earth’s rotation caused the tides. The Pope said he had no proof, that it was a theory, but Galileo taught it as fact. He was wrong.
