By Mario Livio
Reading the history of Galileo’s abjure should be done in all schools. Regardless the fact Galileo was right, the worst aspect of the episode was the killing of the freedom thinking. Galileo taught us Science and Faith can live together but it is important to understand their boundaries. Even today the Big Bang and the theory of evolution are accepted by the Pope (Francesco) contrary to many common people advocating for a stupid creationism and denying facts (the global warming is a more recent example of people myopia).
