Last week, retired baseball star Curt Schilling took to Twitter to criticize, of all things, evolution. And one of his critics was ESPN baseball writer Keith Law, who tried (to no avail) talking sense into the pitcher.
Law was temporarily suspended by ESPN for those tweets (which, let’s admit, were not even remotely offensive).
This week, Law returned to Twitter with this web gem:
“Eppur si muove” translates to “And yet it moves,” the words Galileo uttered when he was forced to recant about the Earth revolving around the sun. It was a quiet admission that scientific truth remained even when the ignorance of others was on full display.
To understand that line, though, you might have to do some research. Which means Curt Schilling won’t notice anytime soon.
