Why do you think church authorities forced Galileo to deny his ideas on the universe? To point out, Galileo was the first guy who believed that the universe was heliocentric, and when he tried to convince others, he was tortured, so he took back his words and his theory and said that the universe is geocentric... So do you know why church authorities didn't want to agree with him? Pleasssee helppp!
