Ahhh...we hear from the pseudo-science site, AiG, again....

Science, states Stein, is supposed to be a search for truth that is attained through open inquiry. But as has been seen over the centuries, the orthodoxy in power rarely tolerate dissent, just as was seen with the treatment of Galileo by the scientists of his day.

This is almost right...let me fix it for ya...feel free to send this to AiG so they can fix theirs too...

Minor tweak, and it's accurate.
