What is scientific revolution?

The Scientific Revolution refers to that period in history (basically the 17th century) when men and women began to ascertain truths about life, the world, and the heavens, without resorting to Christian dogma for the answers. The beginning of the scientific revolution may be laid solidly in the lap of Sir Isaac Newton and his three laws of motion. What ever the truth about Newton and the apple, his "laws" made possible an explaination of how the heavens worked without having to conclude "It's God's will." As Newton, Gallieo, Bacon, and others devised ways to experiment and interpret what they saw around them, the scientific revolution grew far beyond what the Church was willing to accept.
