Firth: "It's amazing the writhing and twisting that goes on when people don't want to believe something is true. Not unlike the Church when Galileo said that the Universe is NOT geocentric. When he persisted and suggested that they take the telescope and look for themselves, they refused and threatened him with being burned at the stake unless he recanted. Knowing, of course, that in the long run, he would be proved right (Copernicus was saying the same thing), to save his own life, Galileo mumblingly allowed as how he might be wrong."

I know exactly how he felt!
