Galileo & Lovecraft

HPL-fishy1

“I submit that the Bible is the inerrant word of God, but it is not a textbook on astronomy!” Galileo Galilei to the Inquisition, 1630 or thereabouts.

 

We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.  H. P. Lovecraft, “The Call of Cthulhu,” 1928.
