In fact the opposite is true and they saw the fallen and dirty Earth belonged below while the heavens were the realm of perfection and light.

    Attempts to put science and religion against each other create controversy where none needs to exist. A basic tenet of Christian belief holds that God is the creator of all there is, that the universe had a beginning a finite time ago and will end at some finite time in the future with the Second Coming, which has already been put off for 2, years. With the fall of Toledo in Spain ina major centre of Moslem learning had fallen to the Christians. And, if we are God's favorites, why did he create this vast universe, wait nine billion years before making us, and then confine us to this tiny speck of dust rather than making it possible for us to live anywhere, even in space? The relaxed reading that had prevailed among academics in the Middle Ages was therefore unfortunately no longer in fashion in Rome. Some of the main themes that Jesus taught, which Christians later embraced, include: Love God.
