In the article Ivermectin in India, Dr. Justus Hope M.D. makes the analogy between the conflict between Galileo and the Catholic Church and the discussion surrounding alternative COVID treatments like ivermectin. I agree wholeheartedly with the assertions in the article, but this characterization of the Church's treatment of Galileo is not accurate.

As well as many other scholarly works. However, the factual representations in this article are well done.
