Yeah, Galileo is another one that people always get wrong. The pope was genuinely interested in Galileo's theories and entreated him to do a proper writeup that explains what his theory has over the earth-centric model, and what his proof was. Galileo then took this permission and used it to be an ass. That was what really got him in trouble. He had the character simplicio, the straw-man idiot speaking with the pope's words; effectively saying "lol pope didn't believe me the first time I presented my theory, not because my theories were incomplete, but because he's a friggin' dumbass."
