Another source credits the invention to Germany's first TV cook Clemens Wilmenrod who came up with a version in 1955. What is X Y?

  • 125. 7. “Eppur si muove” translated as "And yet it moves" or "Albeit it does move” is attributed to X who in 1633 “the moment he was set at liberty, looked up to the sky and down to the ground, and, stamping with his foot, in a contemplative mood, said, Eppur si muove, that is, still it moves”. In reality, X probably never uttered this. There is a portrait, attributed to Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, of X gazing at the wall of his prison cell, on which are scratched these words. The phrase is used today as a sort of pithy retort implying that "it doesn't matter what you believe; these are the facts". Who was X?
