You are a scientist whose years of scientific research supports an idea. However, your theory contradicts the religious belief of your time. The church, which is a strong force in your society, puts you on trial and demands that you publicly deny your theory or otherwise face serious charges. Would you rather?

usmanc says This is what scientists such as Giodano Bruno and Galileo Galilei had to face from the Roman Inquisition. Bruno believed that the universe was more vast than just the solar system and that there were other stars with planets that orbited them. He also harbored the believe of Cosmic Pluralism: That life could possibly exist on other exoplanets. Galileo believed in the Heliocentric system of the universe, that the sun was the center of the universe rather than the earth.
