Science t-shirts | And Yet It Moves Galileo t-shirt
Looking for a Galileo t-shirt? Look no further!
This science t-shirt features a quote from the famous and tragic "father of modern physics" Galileo Galilei.
In the Bible, there are a number of passages relating to the planet Earth and its position in the universe.
Psalm 93:1, 96:10 and 1 Chronicles 16:30 state that "the world is firmly established, it cannot be moved".
Psalm 104:5 states "the Lord set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved"
Ecclesiastes 1:5 says "And the sun rises and sets and returns to its place"
Galileo, firmly in Copernicus' camp with regard to the Sun being the centre of the solar system was alleged to have said "eppur si muovi", which translates as "And yet it moves".
Threatened with torture unless he recanted, and placed under house arrest for much of his life because of this belief, Galileo's tale is tragic and yet tragically familiar.
One of the greatest scientific minds who ever lived, his life made unbearable by the church until his eventual death.
