The Scientific Revolution

Lyle -2nd Period

What was the change?

The Scientific Revolution was a period of time in which great advances in science were made. There were many historical changes in thought and belief. The Scientific Revolution brought a new way of thinking about the natural world.

Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact the society at the time?

The Scientific Revolution changed the way people thought. The church feared reasoning because they did not want Christians to doubt the church. The church explained the world through inspiration and the Bible while science explained the world through reasoning. The new ideas and discoveries during the Scientific Revolution eventually led people to question the church.

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

Many of our modern day inventions and theorys were built off ideas from the scientific revolution. For example, Isaac Newton first invented the three laws of motion. To this day we still learn Newton's three laws of motion in any physics class. Other evident examples of change during the Scientific revolution include the theory on gravity, theories about astronomy, and other inventions of that era.
