Sir Frances Bacon, Johannes Kepler, Galileo, Astronomy, & the Scientific Revolution - 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.'"
