Science The Bruno Future

On seeing this bit of silliness (silly in both the lost and current sense), I thought of…
…my hero (and father of Spinozism) Giordano Bruno. On February 17, 1600, the Catholic church burnt the philosopher’s naked body to nothing for believing what we now know to be true (planets are all over the universe) and what will eventually be known to be true (life as we understand it is on some of these planets). We must never forget that until 1997, the only planets in our universe were those in our solar system.
As Socrates is the martyr of the ancient world, and Jesus the martyr of the middle world, Bruno will be the martyr of the worlds to come.
