selling hypotheses for truths?
The two harrowing events that Schöpffer describes might seem to be out of place, but he would rather have his readers know the peace that a Christian knows, the peace in knowing a Father who does not miss a sparrow falling and numbers the hair of our head, Matt. 10:29-30.
Some might say that Lamont would not be one to count among those who questioned Copernicanism, but didn't he call some hypotheses "superstitions"? And what adds to this account is that Lamont was still living († 1879) when Schöpffer's book was published in 1869. Lamont could have publicly renounced Schöpffer, but there does not seem to be any publicity about this. — Ah, but we are not quite finished with "Schöpffer's List"... in the next Part 18d, we conclude with another astonishing name, on the same high level as Humboldt.
