Re: Ch. 2 - The Rule of Law
I'm half-way through Chapter 2 this afternoon and have enjoyed the history lesson of the famous ancient Greeks' "philosophy" of science up through Friedrich Johannes Kepler
and René Descartes
"laws" of nature.
One can see how the book is progressing against deism and toward atheism in this chapter. The ancients attributed everything to the whim of gods and goddesses but as humans progressed, they found various things that were predictable, like eclipses though they still did not know what eclipses were...
