From the 5th Century A.D. to the advent of Scholastic Aristotelianism, the curriculum in Roman Catholic universities in Europe taught a Rotating Geocentric Earth. St. Thomas Aquinas (1225 A.D.-1274 A.D.) introduced the writings of Aristotle (384 B.C.-322 B.C.) and of Claudius Ptolemy (100 A.D.-170 A.D.) in the 13th Century A.D., and the curriculum changed to teach a Non-Rotating Geocentric Earth. In this GSJ presentation, an Alternate History is presented. The famous Trial of Galileo never happened and the book by Nicolaus Copernicus was never banned by the Vatican of the Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church simply ignored Galileo & his insulting book of 1632 A.D.
