On deluded scientists, heliocentrism and evolutionism.
A History of Heliocentrism
Psalm 104:5 – “[the Lord] Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”
Ecclesiastes 1:5 – “The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.”
1515 – Copernicus proposes the theory of heliocentrism.
1539 – Religious opposition calls Copernicus a “fool”.
“But that is how things are nowadays: when a man wishes to be clever he must… invent something special, and the way he does it must needs be the best! The fool wants to turn the whole art of astronomy upside-down. However, as Holy Scripture tells us, so did Joshua bid the sun to stand still and not the earth.” – Luther
“People gave ear to an upstart astrologer who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon…. This fool wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy; but sacred scripture tells us that Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, and not the earth.” – Luther
“But certain men, either from the love of novelty, or to make a display of ingenuity, have concluded that the earth moves; and they maintain that neither the eighth sphere nor the sun revolves… Now, it is a want of honesty and decency to assert such notions publicly, and the example is pernicious. It is the part of a good mind to accept the truth as revealed by God and to acquiesce in it.” – Melanchthon
1543 – Copernicus publishes De revolutionibus orbium coelestium.
“Who will venture to place the authority of Copernicus above that of the Holy Spirit?” – Calvin
1610 – Gallileo arrives on the scene with his telescope.
1615 – Gallileo defends heliocentrism. Gallileo is prohibited from teaching the theory.
1633 – Gallileo was put under house arrest.
1758 – Catholic church dropped heliocentric books from the prohibited list.
1822 – Pope Pius VII finally approved the printing of the heliocentric theory in Rome.
1992 – Church apologises to Gallileo, some 300 years after his death.
A History of Evolutionism
Genesis 1:24-25 “And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good…”
1809 – Lamarck proposes theory of transmutation of species.
1861 – Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species, his theory of evolution by natural selection.
1861-2008 – More than a century of ad hominem attacks:
- Darwin was a misogynistic and racist Nazi.
- Darwin didn’t know a thing about cells.
- Darwin had a death bed conversion, etc.
2008 – Church apologises to Darwin, some 100 years after his death.

You see. Just because something is written in your Bible, does not make it true. Ignorant bastards.
Medical Sciences. Because praying doesn’t do sh*t.
And remember. “Facts don’t cease to exist because they are ignored.” – Huxley
