If this be pedantry, let us make the most of it. No idea what science
fiction classic is being read as closely as Dryden, but surely it wasn't
Einstein who found God in the fine print. I think there's an old
controversy about this one, but I've always quoted Aby Warburg, whom it
is much snootier to quote, and who could probably be invested as the
patron saint of HUMANISTS (with about as much justice as St. Christopher
is invoked for travelers).
