holding as true a false doctrine taught by many, namely, that the sun is immovable in the center of the world, and that the earth moves, and also with
a diurnal motion; also, for having pupils whom you instructed in the same opinions; also, for maintaining a correspondence on the same with some
German mathematicians; also for publishing certain letters on the sun-spots, in which you developed the same doctrine as true; also, for answering the
objections which were continually produced from the Holy Scriptures, by glozing the said Scriptures according to your own meaning; and whereas
thereupon was produced the copy of a writing, in form of a letter professedly written by you to a person formerly your pupil, in which, following the
hypothesis of Copernicus, you include several propositions contrary to the true sense and authority of the Holy Scriptures; therefore (this Holy
Tribunal being desirous of providing against the disorder and mischief which were thence proceeding and increasing to the detriment of the Holy Faith)
by the desire of his Holiness and the Most Eminent Lords, Cardinals of this supreme and universal Inquisition, the two propositions of the stability
of the sun, and the motion of the earth, were qualified by the Theological Qualifiers as follows:
These are the same people that translated Greek scripture into the King James Bible in 1611.

Mankind has gone from being sons of the gods to brothers of apes.
Perhaps that is why extraterrestrials visit this zoo.
