Scientific Revolution: Scientific Method

The Scientific method was used by different scientists to prove or disprove a theory. Before the scientific method scientists came up with theories and everyone thought they were true, until Galileo proved Aristotle a greek philospher wrong. Aristotle thought that light stone would fall faster to the ground than a heavy stone. Galileo disagreed with his theory and set up an experiment that proved stones of different weights fall at the same pace.
