The Scientific Revolution

Valerie Marentes 5th period

What was the change that the scientific revolution made?

It mostly changed people's view on religion and the physical world. It also created a different way of thinking about the world. It made conflicts with the churches because of the new theories that were made and the doubts that were made towards the teachings of the church. To add to, scientists began to discover new things with their new instruments and tools and noticed their observations didn't match old theories. They wanted to know more about this.

How did the change impact the society at the time?

Many of the astronomer's theories weren't approved at the times because it went against religion. Once many other scientists began to prove the theories were true,they began to work on them more and more. For example,Galileo's findings scared the church and people began to think that the church were wrong about this. He was put on house arrest and until 1992 the Catholic Church approved his theories.

How is the change evidenced in today's modern society?

Since there was many new theories,scientists began to explore on them. Because of this,there was sundry of new discoveries. New tools and instruments were developed and helped scientists with their theories and experiments. Without this revolution, probably there wouldn't be anyone that walked on the moon yet or there wouldn't be computers and iPhones.
