  •  Did you use Isaac Asimov's point about astronomy? (0+ / 0-)

    In an essay about Shakespeare-deniers, he cites the line in "Romeo and Juliet" about "every star moving in its own orb" to show that Shakespeare did not have ENOUGH formal education to realize that, in his day, the official science said that the STARS were fixed to the largest and final sphere (or orb) and were NOT separate bodies.

    Only someone with an in depth knowledge about BOTH the humanities and science, including the HISTORY OF SCIENCE, would have caught that!
