What was the change?

Before the scientific revolution a.k.a the middle ages the church and religion dominated society.The church influenced everyone's thoughts on the world and intellectually. "As the church decided on scientific theories that were not to be challenged,people only focused on proving the truth, instead of discovering new knowledge."(blogspot.com). People only believed in the geocentric model before the scientific revolution. When the scientific revolution came around everything started to change. People started to make new discoveries and improve on theories and technology.

Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

There were many discoveries involving technology which made it easy to buy and sell products. Philosophers were able to figure out different secrets of nature and the universe. However the religious world during the scientific revolution wasnt to happy that some of the new discoveries conflicted with their beliefs and the bible. They would threaten to torture you if you didn't stop your research, they would make you sign a paper stating that your research was heresy,or even put you under house arrest until you died.

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