Galileo's Fingers Reportedly Resurface After a Century

Interesting, yet slightly bizarre, story out today. Especially the part that discusses how this type of dismemberment is commonly done with Catholic saints, whose body parts purportedly possess sacred powers.

BTW...doesn't "Galileo's Fingers" sound like a good name for a rock band?

  1. Not only does it sound like a great name for a rock band, but from what I know of his personality, Galileo would have been a great lead singer and guitarist. Though from my partial reading of the "Dialogues," the lyrics might best be left to others.
