Thessaly City for I think in the discussion of natural problems, Galileo wrote, we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations. From this point on, nothing was to be taken for granted or accepted on the basis of faith or authority. Everything was to be validated through reason and grounded in repeated observations and experimental investigations of the concrete, physical world. As Albert Einstein wrote, the leitmotif of Galileo’s work was the passionate fight against any kind of dogma based on authority.1 In the wake of this fight, modern science was born. Francis Bacon (1561 1626), an English philosopher contemporary with Galileo, stated that ancient times were the youth of the world. Bacon believed that there was much growing up to be done.
