Description:

The paper relates that in "The Starry Messenger" the purpose of the Italian astronomer Galileo was to present evidence validating the theory of Copernicus regarding the Earth and other planetary bodies moving around the sun, instead of all celestial bodies moving around the Earth. This paper explores Galileo's argument, and examines the evidence he assembles to make this case. The paper shows how in Galileo's perspective of using empirical, observed discovery to validate theory, we can understand how important the twin elements of theory and empirical testing are to understanding nature through science.
