    Those bothered by the apparent contradiction between Copernicanism and the
    literal sense of several verses of the Bible (more than a dozen, but e.g.
    Joshua chapter 10 and Eccles 1:5) include Martin Luther (George will
    properly tell us that his comment was impersonal, off-the-cuff, and
    unofficial--but then so were a lot of the things Luther said), Cardinal
    Bellarmino, and Tycho Brahe. The list could be a lot longer, but these
    three illustrate the point well enough.
