“ An imbecile habit has arisen in modern controversy of saying that such and such a creed can be held in one age but cannot be held in another.
Some dogma, we are told, was credible in the twelfth century but is not credible in (the twenty-first).
You might as well say that a certain philosophy can be believed on Mondays, but cannot be believed on Tuesdays.
You might as well say of a view of the cosmos that it was suitable for half-past three, but not suitable for half-past four.
What (a person) believes depends on ( his/her ) philosophy, not upon the clock or the century. ” ¹
