700. The Catholic Church Is Standing Still
Let me focus on the Catholic Church, its failing logic, and the end of the Middle Ages. On killings by the Catholic Church, Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) was burned at the stake in 1600 because he wrote on the Infinite Universe and Worlds in 1584. Bruno defended the heliocentric theory of Copernicus. But he also said that the universe was infinite, that it contained an infinite number of worlds, and that these worlds are inhabited by intelligent beings. (click)
Bruno also rejected the following Christian teachings --- the Trinity, the divinity of Christ, the virginity of Mary, and transubstantiation. (Transubstantiation mean with wine, the bread of Christ is transformed into the body, with blood, of a living person.)
Galileo (1564-1642) lived in the period of Bruno.(click) While Galileo knew Bruno and his new beliefs, Galileo was imprisoned because he agreed with the universe of Copernicus. In 1992, 350 years after Galileo's death, the Catholic Church apologized Galileo. Thus, killings, prisons, poor teachings, and poor sciences are not godly religions.
I believe that the Catholic Church never learned the great work of Galileo on his Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences in 1667. One of the sciences in this book says that all things in the universe have parts, which are infinite in number. Thus, Galileo says that all bodies in the universe have a continuous quantity build up of an infinite number of indivisibles (see p. 34). So, the meaning of transubstantiation in the Catholic Church is wrong because Jesus is not God. The bread and wine will not connect Jesus with humans. God made this connection when He made souls.
