Historians remove Nicolaus Copernicus for denying scientific consensus

US—Nicolaus Copernicus was a Renaissance polymath, active as a mathematician, astronomer, and Catholic canon, whose statements frequently contradict the scientific consensus on the Earth being the center of the universe.

Therefore, a consensus of academic historians have removed Copernicus from all student history texts in US high school and college curricula.

“He was a science denier because he went against the scientific consensus and therefore, he needs to be utterly canceled from all history classes,” historian and Wikipedia editor Hugh Jassole said.

The publication of Copernicus’s model in his book De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres), just before his death in 1543, was a major event in the history of science, audaciously claiming against the facts of experts that the sun was somehow the center of the solar system.

But that has all be changed and experts have restored the proper truth according to consensus that the Earth is the center of the solar system.

“We apologize to any Renaissance scientific experts that Copernicus may have offended and assure them that this will never happen again!” Jassole said.
