1/ "Et pourtant elle tourne". Voici la célèbre phrase que #Galilée aurait prononcée après sa condamnation en 1633. Or cette phrase apocryphe et popularisée par Bertolt Brecht, est à l'image d'une affaire qui depuis 2 siècles est instrumentalisée pour dénigrer l'Eglise catholique.

Shamash was the Akkadian name for the #Mesopotamian god of the sun, known to the Sumerians as Utu. His main symbol was the solar disc, a circle with four points in each of the cardinal directions and four wavy, diagonal lines emanating from the circle between each point.
