Scientific Revolution

Post  ebznski on Sun Nov 30, 2014 5:05 pm

The Scientific Revolution occurred during the 17th century where it changed the way that people during their time thought and the way we think today as well. The whole idea of the Scientific Revolution was to separate religion and science so that rather than just believing something is true they can have proof behind it, and if the Catholic Church was wrong, then they were wrong, no argument. It began with Nicholas Copernicus' new model of the universe that stated that the sun was the center of the Universe rather than the earth. This model was called the heliocentric model. It ended with Isaac Newtons famous discovery of gravity which had put the final touch on the heliocentric model of the universe. However the Scientific Revolution would not have begun had it not been for the expansion into western land (the age of exploration) because people were able to intermingle their ideas and discover how things truly were.
One important thing that was invented was the idea of Rationalism which states that reasoning, not faith, is the source to all knowledge. This idea was created by René Descartes who was French. Descartes was so focused on the idea of reason that he didn't believe that anything was real until it was proven.

Excellent topic! A lot of scientists posted their theories on the death bed because at those time if you would go against the church they would kill you.

i believe this changed our world forever, the scientific revolution led to many other inventions and theories that helped the evolution of science to be this advanced today. This period of time changed the perspective of many people in the world; the universe was no longer the mystery it once was. This made people open their eyes.

The Scientific Revolution was the progression of modern science during the early modern period, when the development of mathematics, biology, astronomy, and physics transformed the way people thought of nature and society. Some of the major figures during this period were Nicolaus Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, and Galileo Galilei. It was one of the most important periods in history. Good topic Elizabeth
