It should be noted that Galileo was never in a dungeon or tortured; during the Inquisition process he stayed mostly at the house of the Tuscan ambassador to the Vatican and for a short time in a comfortable apartment in the Inquisition building. (For a note on actions taken by Galileo’s defenders and by the church in the centuries since the trial, see BTW: Galileo’s condemnation.) After the process he spent six months at the palace of Ascanio Piccolomini (c. 1590–1671), the archbishop of Siena and a friend and patron, and then moved into a villa near Arcetri, in the hills above Florence. He spent the rest of his life there. Galileo’s daughter Sister Maria Celeste, who was in a nearby nunnery, was a great comfort to her father until her untimely death in 1634.

Mike, at the time Galileo was on trial, there was only about 10 sciencists who believed in the "Copernican Theory", which was a hilocentric view of the earth ( the earth circled the sun). Most of the world at that time held to Ptolemy's geocentric view of the earth,(the sun circled the earth) and Ptolemy did not get his theory from the bible or any christian. It wasn't until Sir Issac Newton in the late 17th century that the hilocentric view became widely accepted by most astronomers.
Newton was a devout Christian. He hoped that his entire work in physics would inspire men to believe in God. He stated that:
"When I wrote my treastise about our System I had an eye upon such Principles as might work with considering men for the belief of a Deity and nothing can rejoice me more than to find it useful for that purpose."[4]
