Sir Francis Bacon & the Scientific Revolution; and Astronomers Galileo, Kepler "O, Almighty God, I am thinking Thy thoughts after Thee!" - American Minute with Bill Federer
In book five of The Harmonies of the World (1619), Johannes Kepler wrote:
"The die is cast; the book is written, to be read either now or by posterity, I care not which.
It may be well to wait a century for a reader, as God has waited six thousand years for an observer."
"I had the intention of becoming a theologian ... but now I see how God is, by my endeavors, also glorified in astronomy, for 'the heavens declare the glory of God.'"
