    TruthPeeler is a blog that will present opinions based on facts as we know them. And “facts as we know them” do change over time. For example, the Catholic Church no longer believes the World is flat.  Yet, hundreds of years ago, the Church swore the Earth was flat with anyone disagreeing deemed a heretic. That’s why Copernicus, a Polish astronomer and mathematician who viewed the Earth as a sphere that revolved around the sun, was heartily criticized by “learned” Church leaders who insisted the Earth was flat.

    Nicolaus Copernicus 1473-1543

    Nicolaus Copernicus (February 19, 1473 – May 24, 1543) was the first astronomer to formulate a comprehensive heliocentric cosmology, which displaced the Earth from the center of the universe.[1] His epochal book, De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), is often regarded as the starting point of modern astronomy and the defining epiphany that began the Scientific Revolution.  — Wikipedia

Now that the scientists have been unshackeled from the know-nothings, stem-cell research can move forward.
