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.
