Wilkins, John, A discovery of a new world : or a discourse tending to prove, that 'tis probable there may be another Habitable World in the Moon ; with a discourse concerning the Probability of a Passage thither; unto which is added, a discourse concerning a New Planet, tending to prove, that 'tis probable our earth is one of the Planets
page |< < (81) of 370 > >|
That the Moon may be a World.
Policy, whether true or falſe, but ſome of them,
by a Cabaliſtical Interpretation can Father it
upon a dark place of Scripture, or (if need be)
upon a Text that is clean contrary.
There be-
ing not any abſurdity ſo groſs and incredible,
for which theſe Abuſers of the Text, will not
find out an Argument.
Whereas, ’tis the more
natural way, and ſhould be obſerved in all Con-
troverſies, to apply unto every thing, the pro-
per proofs of it;
and when we deal with Phi-
loſophical Truths, to keep our ſelves within
the Bounds of Humane Reaſon and Authority.
