The latest issue of American Journal of Physics (Oct 2001), 1029-35,
contains a splendid article detailing a point that historians of science (at
least some of us) have been tring to get scientists to understand for years:
namely, that the old story about Copernicus dethroning humanity by moving us
out of the center of the universe, is simply not true. The truth is closer
to the reverse.
Broadcast this to your scientific friends, who typically use this garbage
to browbeat religious believers, a la Carl Sagan.
