Galen, a Greek physician, dies, during his life he “tried to understand the function of animal organs. Although he knew that the heart pumped blood, he could not tell just from looking that the blood circulated and returned to the heart. Galen mistakenly thought that blood was pumped out to “irrigate” the tissues, and that new blood was made continuously to resupply the heart. His idea was taught for nearly fifteen hundred years. It was not until the seventeenth century that an Englishman, William Harvey introduced the theory that blood flows continuously in one direction, making a complete circuit and returning to the heart.” (Darwin’s Black Box, by Michael J. Behe)
