Hart on the Galileo affair

"the irony is, strange to say, that it was the church that was demanding proof, and Galileo who was demanding blind assent--to a model that was wrong."

David Bentley Hart, Atheist delusions: the Christian revolution and its fashionable enemies (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 2009): 66. Hart's account here is only perhaps rhetorically original, but I did think this well put.
