Re: Creationists ?

If it was written in 1615, that was probably written AFTER he was forced to repent before the Pope for writing Starry Messenger which proved not everything revolved around the Earth by noting, among other things, Jupiter had satellites of its own, and that Venus showed a full set of phases: physically impossible under the Aristotalean hypothesis because a Full Venus required the Sun to be in front of Venus.

IOW, that was likely written under duress.
