Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because scientific study and research was kinda difficult at his time  the church was acting like a hooligan then. They brandished anyone (like they did to Galileo) whose findings conflicted the church's preaching, a traitor. Publishing one's scientific study in the open was a sureshot suicide back then. So, there was hardly anyone who could/would/wanted to check out Galileo's claims.
