Scientific Revolution

Angel R. 7th

What was the change?

The scientific revolution was a new way of thinking about the natural world. Back then old scholars had believed in the geocentric theory. This was was the belief in which the earth was an immovable object located at the center of the universe. It was common sense at the time. Christianity had pushed it further into belief and also the way the sun had transitioned from day to night. But then changes happened when new scholars published works that challenged the ideas of ancient thinkers and the church. They replaced old assumptions with new theories.

Newton

A very smart English scientist, he studied mathematics and physics. He published his ideas in a work called The Mathematical Principles Of Natural Philosophy. He described that the universe was like a giant clock. He could even express this mathematically. He said God set everything in motion.


How did the change impact society at the time?

At the time their were assumptions about the earth. Believing that the earth was an immovable object in the center of the universe but studies from Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, and Newton were proving this false. The church didn't like him so at the time it was impacting the society badly.


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

Today all the studies from the scientific revolution impacted us all good because now we we have scientific instruments made, more studies for medicine, studies on the human body and discoveries in chemistry.
