    The Pope placed him under house arrest for life because he invented the telescope . He was also forbidden to go to heaven .

    Galileo would be sorely disappointed to know how all too many of God's people have omitted any attempt to use "sense, reason and intellect."

    What's funny Mary is that a Pope in 1972 released him from Purgatory so he can go on to heaven. I'm sure he is glad to know this 330 years after his death.

    Got to smile great big here. I'm with Galileo on this one. cal, what do you think, if I stay away from telescopes, do you think the Pope will let me go to heaven directly?
