  1. They must have debated geocentricity vs heliocentricity for quite some time too – until Giordano Bruno set the cat among the pigeons with an even more radical proposition.

    That the Sun was not the center of the universe, but one of innumerable stars, was strongly advocated by the mystic Giordano Bruno. Over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries, the status of the Sun as merely one star among many became increasingly obvious.

    His cosmological theories went beyond the Copernican model in identifying the sun as just one of an infinite number of independently moving heavenly bodies. He was burned at the stake by secular authorities in 1600 after the Roman Inquisition found him guilty of heresy.

    No-one likes a smart arse.
