Our speaker is Rolf Lindgren one of our own members and Dane County conservative activist. Rolf discuss the trial of Galileo over Galileo's radical theory that the earth orbits the sun.
A nearly 400-year-old trial over a scientific theory - why even talk about it? Is it relevant to today's world? Yes, because it shows what happens when governmental authorities adopt a scientific theory and persecute all others. We like to think we've advanced to the age of reason. Something like this could never happen now. But, it can.
Jump ahead 370 years from Galileo's trial and in 2006 Grist Magazine called for Nuremburg style Trials for Global Warming Skeptics. Stopping short of a trial and prison, the Weather Channel once urged decertifying global warming skeptics. If you don't go along, you'll never get a job in meteorology again.
The age of Orwellian thought crimes is here.
