“The Myth of Galileo: A Story With A (Mostly) Valuable Lesson”

Joe Carter ends a detailed and eye-opening correction to the myth of Galileo, and concludes with:

I suspect that there are many more lessons that can be gleaned from this story. But I find that the real moral is not so much in the story itself but in the fact that the story even needs to be told in the first place. While I first heard the story of Galileo in elementary school, it wasn’t until long, long after I had graduated from college that I finally learned the truth. No doubt some people are just now hearing about it for the first time. How is that possible?
