Nicolaus Copernicus discovered that Earth revolves around the sun.
A serious blow to literalists who demanded that reality would match the Creation story that put Earth, not the sun, at the center of the universe.
The Torah is not the definitive handbook of the Perfect Historian or the ultimate report of the Perfect Detective. It may or may not describe what happened. But it certainly is an unalterable faultless lesson for us.
There are still silly Monotheists that would grant G^d permission to use gravity but not evolution. Bad news for them. Evolution has just been shown in real-time, not just in fossil records.
DNA has four bases: A, T, C, and G. RNA has A, U, C, and G. And now parasites of bacteria have been found that have Z, T, C, and G.
The question should be asked, though, why parasites of bacteria may show this new feat and other life forms not. Perhaps, the Z-T bond is just too stable for everyday life (pardon the pun). More sophistication comes with greater vulnerability. A stone cannot die. a plant can’t grow hungry. An animal can’t lose its mind. A human can’t know everything.
Science is always worthwhile following for those who like the truth.
