Today in the class of Social Sciences the teacher Paqui has showed a video (posted by Amalia), the video talks about the 17th century in England, how kings received their power,
We have seen some photos of the Sant's Paul Cathedral of Chistopher Wren, he drew inspiration from of San Peter Basilica in Rome. And we have talked about Iñigo Jones who was the first significant British architect of the early modern period, he made Banqueting House in England
Then we have spoken about the empiricism , of Galileo Galilei, who was a scientist who defended the most important theory, the heliocentric theory ( the planets turn around the Sun). The Catholic Inquisition Catholic said: if you don't recant you will kill you. And he had to recant, but he said EPPUR SI MUOVE: However it moves
EPPUR SI MUOVE: However it moves
We have talked about if the animals think about their existence , their lied of his life... Later we have written some scientifics of the 17th century like Francis Baron, Isaac Newton, Nicholas Copernicus Johannes Kepler and Gottfried Leibniz. All this people lived in protenstant countries. This is not casual. The Protestant religious gave more freedom and more progress in scientific than Catholic religious. In the Inquisition Catholic the progress in scientific was inexistence because Inquisition Catholic go to their house and chosed them. They said that the Earth is the center of the universe, because it's created by God. Dogma is rigid and you can't change it.
