Paleontology, Astronomy, Architecture Newton vs. Hooke Aristotelian Ideas The four basic elements of the universe. All elements had there
natural place on earth. Aristotle fifth element of nature He believed there was a fifth element called aether which made up all the things like the heavens. Geocentric Model This was a belief that Earth was the center of the Universe. Why the Church agreed
with these beliefs? Pressure and volume are inversely proportionate; while one doubles, the other halves. They agreed with them mainly because they were easily explainable and easy to understand. Geo centrism was widely believed because in the scriptures it tells us the earth is stationary. New discoveries and advancements. Galileo and his heliocentric ideas. Galileo supported the previous discoveries of Nicholas Copernicus that Earth was revolving around the sun. Galileo's telescope. He was able to confirm this idea by making one of the very first telescopes. By studding Venus and its movement through space he wasable to conclude that the planets were all rotating around the Sun, including Earth. The Churches Reaction to Galileo. The Church immediately responds to his ludicrous beliefs and puts him on trial. Trial 1 and its consequences. He was found innocent but was told to forget these ideas and to never pursue them again. Trial 2 and its consequences. This time he was found guilty at the age of 69 and was sentenced to a life time of house arrest. What was the Scientific Revolution? When? Who? Why/How? Beginning of modern science

Scientific method: Depends upon logic, observation, and reason rather than faith

Created paradigm of our solar system

Universities formed

Rediscovery of classical science 1500s-1700s Nicolas Copernicus

= Church is All-knowing Aftermath Irreparable damage between faith and reason.
