Philobiblon: Indeed

Monday, November 22, 2004


A lovely quote from Pierre Bayle, on whom I have posted elsewhere:

"It is the purest delusion to suppose that because an idea has been handed down from time immemorial to succeeding generations, it may not be entirely false."

Quoted in A Short History of Western Atheism, J. Thrower, Pemberton Books, 1971, p. 81
