„Christianity… is an old metaphysical fiction, stuffed with fables, contradictions and absurdities: it was spawned in the fevered imagination of the Orientals, and then spread to our Europe, where some fanatics espoused it, where some intriguers pretended to be convinced by it and where some imbeciles actually believed it. Attributed in "The West and the Rest", by Niall Ferguson, Penguin 2011“

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), Nous étions seuls. Où ? Je ne pouvais le dire, à peine l'imaginer.

VIII: Mobilis in Mobili
