Galileo's trial, concerning whether the earth is moving or stationary, is an example of the intense interaction (conflict) between science and religion in the 17th century. Galileo was put into house arrest in 1633 until his death for suggesting that the Earth is moving. Is the interaction between science and religion a positive or a negative thing? I personally think this interaction may be negative and should avoid interacting because it stopped people from believing in the heliocentric system which is currently shown to be correct and it slowed down the progress and development of science. What do you think? Any other comments? I just want to get more ideas...Thanks!
